How far along:
24 weeks

How big is baby:
The size of an ear of corn.

Weight gain this week (followed by total weight gain for this pregnancy thus far):
5 lbs (19 lbs total) – growth spurt!?

Maternity clothes:
Maternity clothes and workout clothes…same as usual. I’m starting to feel bigger and I’ve finally had two whole people (strangers) ask me if I’m pregnant. While I don’t want anyone to touch my belly, I certainly don’t mind if people can actually tell that I’m pregnant. It makes the whole thing seem a bit more real.

Stretch marks:
None.

Belly button:
Innie.

Sleep:
I’ve been sleeping pretty well. Mac and Abby have been battling a little bug (and now I am as well), so they’ve been waking up at 5:45am. Today was the first day they were back to “normal” – 6:30am wake up time for them. Travis has been great though…he’s been letting me get some extra rest since I’ve been so pooped out.

Best moment of the week:
Successfully grilling cornbread (both regular and gluten free) on the Big Green Egg. Gluten free recipe to come. 

Food cravings:
Nothing in particular, just lots of food. I’ve been very hungry.

Food aversions:
None.

Symptoms:
Heartburn no matter what I eat.
Weight gain.
Growing belly.
My red spots are getting more red.
I feel tired and maybe even a little swollen at the end of the day if I’ve been on my feet a lot.

Movement:
Caroline is super active now and when she moves, I can finally see my whole belly moving under my shirt. So fun!

Gender:
Caroline is a GIRL!

What I’m looking forward to:
Hawaii (Maui) in March. Travis just booked our trip last night. We’ll be celebrating our 4 year wedding anniversary as well as our Babymoon for #3!  I’m super duper excited!!!

What I’m nervous about:
Having to research/test drive/buy a new car…while I thought I’d NEVER drive a minivan, I’m afraid that’s looking like the most practical solution for our growing team. Uggghhh!!!

What I miss:
Have I mentioned this yet…???  I miss San Francisco.  I miss our old music class. I miss the parks. I miss walking everywhere. Sorry, I know I probably sound like a broken record, but it’s true.

Next appointment:
February 13th.

Until next time,

    Have you tried famotidine for heartburn? It is pregnancy safe and was the only thing that worked for me.

    Have you checked out the MDX? I think it’s a great alternative to the mini-van 🙂 There’s a collapsible third row and it’s pretty spacious. You can check ours out next time we get together 🙂

      My brother and sister-in-law have the MDX and they love it. We’ll definitely check it out but for some reason, I feel like we’ll just end up with a minivan. haha…hopefully I’m wrong!!!

    Hi there! I stumbled on your blog when I was looking for things to do in the Oakland area. Did you know they opened a Roam burger in Lafayette?

    […] many of you probably remember, it was only one short week ago that I wrote about our need for a new car and about how sad I was at the prospect of driving a minivan around town. I always thought I’d […]
