Watch my super special 24 Week Pregnancy Vlog here!
Sorry for the lack of blog posts yesterday! I was feeling extremely ill, I think I caught a 24 hour bug or something because I basically slept all day...had a really bad headache & nausea and I couldn't film or take bump pictures. So here they are a day later instead! Also, thank you so much to my hubby Jofus for taking over my pregnancy vlog yesterday! I think you'll all agree he did a fabulous job...ha ha ha :)
How far along? 24 weeks 1 day!
Total weight gain/measurements: Weighed in at 132lbs this week -- gained another 2lbs this week!! I'm pretty sure it's because we ate really badly though...also given this week's craving I'm not surprised at all! So that's a total of 15lbs gained since pre-pregnancy. I am still on track according to this though! Yay! Also my measurements went up, which is good because it means that the baby is actually growing and it's not just me, lol! So my waist is now 29 1/2" and my tummy is 35 1/2".
Maternity clothes: I did purchase a pair of indigo maternity skinny jeans and a maternity top from ASOS although they haven't arrived yet.
Stretch marks? Still nothing! I got sent another two tubs of the Dream Belly Butter (thank you Fairhaven!) which you guys know I love...and I have also been using The Body Shop Monoi Miracle Oil...that stuff is magical!!
Sleep: Hmm...sleep was okay this week, I guess it was better than last week! I still use my white noise app almost every night though and it does help.
Best moment this week: Catching Emilia's movements on camera! You can watch them at the end of the vlog here. She is getting soooo strong, it's crazy!
Miss anything? Going to the gym!! This isn't pregnancy related in anyway...but basically when we moved last December we ended up living in a completely different town so our gym membership went to waste :( That was the only thing we both liked about living there...the gym and pool were so nice! Hopefully we'll find another one closer by to where we are now because I do miss going.
Movement: Tons of movement this week...every single day I swear it gets stronger and I can feel her more!
Food cravings: Yes!! But it wasn't very healthy...I just craved donuts, all the time. And I did indulge...a lot. Hence the two pound weight gain, ha ha ha :)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Seafood!
Gender: Girl! But I did have a dream that she came out a boy! That was really weird...
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Itchy boob...yes boob, singular. It's just one in particular and it drives me INSANE!! I just want to rip off my bra and start scratching like a crazy person but I know I can't! It's honestly so annoying though. I also think I got quite a bit of heartburn this week...or at least that's what it felt like. I've never had heartburn before so I'm not sure! Either way it wasn't very pleasant. But on the plus side, my skin was super well-behaved this week! Yay :)
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: A bit of both...pregnancy isn't fun ALL of the time ;)
Looking forward to: 3 weeks till Sorrento!! Woo hoo!! I think we're booking our hotel in Dublin today, as we're staying there for one night before we leave because we have an early flight. I just remembered I need to find a dress for my cousin's wedding. It's just really hard because I don't know how big I'll be by then, so I plan on buying something closer to the date! I'm also looking forward to getting my maternity jeans, yay :)
