Prego Journal: Week 24

How far along: 24 Weeks

Aidan's little clothing collection is coming along thanks to my sister and sister in law! We're going to need more hangers and a dresser soon to store everything. 
How big is baby:  Ear of corn. He is starting to gain weight rapidly, about 6 ounces a week.  Some hair growth has started on his head
Total weight gain: +11 lbs
Maternity clothes:  No difference, still using Nancy's old clothes.  
Sleep: Other than waking up to use the bathroom at least 2 to 3 times a night, it's been pretty good.          
Best moment(s) of the week: 
Mimi got to feel Aidan on Saturday!
Just spending time with Jason this weekend was wonderful.  He makes me so happy and feel endlessly loved.   
I started planning out Aidan's nursery and coming up with baby shower ideas  :) 
Food cravings: I'm loving my scrambled egg sandwiches in the morning.  I have one full egg and one egg white every morning.
Food aversions: sweets...this section is starting to get boring
Symptoms: Still having my pregnancy brain moments, mostly affecting me in the area of decision making. Ready to go to bed by 10:00. I've been pretty emotional this week, but not as emotional as last week. 
Movement: I've started being able to see the movements through my belly and it is so exciting! Jason also saw one of the movements on Thursday night.  Aidan let out a huge kick and sure enough my belly popped out.  So fun!  So far the movements don't hurt, mostly just take me by surprise. 
What I’m looking forward to:  Halloween!  I can't wait to give out candy at our own house :) And meet all the neighborhood kids and seek out potential babysitter material for the future.        
What I miss: feeling rested  
Next appt: Nov 6th
Workout/Fitness: Still going on my walks and jogs and doing weights.  I wear ankle and wrist weights when I go for long walks; I'm pretty sure this makes me look super ridiculous, but it gives my walks a little added something.  I also did a brief workout on my brother's elliptical on Saturday evening. 


  1. Baby shower ideas A fantastic baby shower gift is a gift certificate for a private CPR class for the mommy and daddy to be and a few of their selected family and friends who may become future babysitters. This idea was given to us by a paramedic who stated people can contact their local ambulance, hospital or Red Cross and set up a class for a nominal fee to cover the instructor and manuals if applicable

    1. That's a great idea! Thank you for the recommendation!

  2. Little boy clothes are so cute!

  3. Great idea to add weights on your walks!! I'm stealing this idea!! :) also, what a nice and organized closet you both have there! Props on the style and skills!
