24 Week Bump Date and a Bumpdate Collage

How Far Along: 24 Weeks
(You can check out my 24 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 24 weeks: Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts her at about 1 1/3 pounds. Since she's almost a foot long (about the size of an ear of corn), she cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but her body is filling out proportionally and she'll soon start to plump up.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my 21 week appt. I totally forgot to pay attention to how much I had gained total. At 17 weeks I was up 10 lbs. I go back to the Dr. on Monday, so I'll know better what my weight gain is then.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a GIRL!!! Still nameless, thanks to my husband!!

Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings.

What I miss: Nothing really at the moment, other than just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath.

Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.

Symptoms: A growing belly, a few Braxton Hicks contractions here and there and some sciatic nerve pain.

Best Moment this week: Just feeling baby girl move more and more.

What I am looking forward to: Having a definite name for baby girl and getting her nursery ready. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. appt. on Monday. I will then be going every 2 weeks at that point! I can't believe we're that far along already!

A little recap of Weeks 6-24. ☺

Did you guys come up with a boy name before you knew the gender? We are trying to get one of each before we know. We are struggling with the boy name.
