Third Pregnancy :: Week 24
Age of Abigail ::
She’s officially 3!
Age of Mackenzie ::
How far along:
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 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.
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.
Nothing in particular, just lots of food. I’ve been very hungry.
Heartburn no matter what I eat.
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.
Caroline is super active now and when she moves, I can finally see my whole belly moving under my shirt. So fun!
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.
Until next time,
