24 weeks and 3 days!

24 papayacucumber 

Our baby girl is the size of a papaya 🙂 By the end of this week, she will be around 1.46 lbs. and 13.62″ long! My fruits are starting to last 2-3 weeks, so by 28 weeks, she will be about 2.2 lbs and 15″ long! (by the way, I’ve got 3 fruit sizes left until she’s born!!!)

Less then 16 weeks left!!! SOOOOO crazy to think that!

How far along? 24 weeks, 3 days 🙂 our little peanut is getting bigger and bigger every day!

Total weight gain/loss: +10 lbs 🙂

Maternity clothes? yes, I tried wearing a pair of jean capris that weren’t maternity…yeah not so good! I even had a rubberband holding the button closed. 

Stretch marks? None yet 🙂

Sleep: Knock on wood! I have been sleeping pretty well lately! Still kind of tired during the day, but usually 8:00pm comes around and I’m wiped!

Best moment this week: Our biggest excitement lately is that Ava was able to feel her sister last weekend!! It was such an awesome thing! She’s like “Ali what are you doing with my hand?” I was like “Don’t you want to feel your sister kick?” Then she sat super still! 

Food cravings: anything cucumber, still 🙂 Otherwise, I’ve finally been able to eat normal! I have even had chicken, oh yeah! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing right now, knock on wood!

Have you started to show yet: For sure! Still don’t look very pregnant when I’m in my black scrubs, but the PA I work with can definitely tell. 

Belly Button in or out? still somewhat in. It’s getting really flat though!

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: I’m definitely happier, but don’t piss me off…cus you won’t win!

Weekly Wisdom: Heat womps when pregnant.

Milestones: Ava being able to feel her little sister kick 🙂 she will be such an amazing big sister! 

Next appointments: Next appointment with Dr. Weston is 8/25 🙂 (and it’s gestational diabetes check time) :-\


22 weeks :)

18 weeks until we meet out little GIRL! Don’t mind my work belly selfie 🙂 She’s the size of an eggplant and will just get bigger and bigger every week!!! She weighs a little over a pound and is about 11.38″ long!


How far along? 22 weeks!!! Things have definitely been flying by already! 

Total weight gain/loss: gained 8 pounds 🙂

Maternity clothes? yup! jeans and shorts! I wear the maternity shirts but don’t necessarily NEED them. But hey, they’re comfy 🙂

Stretch marks? None yet 🙂

Sleep: Sleep is becoming less and less of a thing that I actually get….it’s kind of irritating me! 

Best moment this week: Well I haven’t updated for 2 weeks 🙂 so last week, of course we were so happy to find out that we’re having a GIRL! The ultrasound and everything went amazing! (minus that we were a few minutes late) hehe But every part of our little girl is just perfect right now! All her measurements were great. We even got to see her kidneys, stomach, femur, and where the umbilical cord inserts 🙂 We definitely have a hyper little girl on our hands too! She just would not stay still during the exam! It was kind of hard to even find out what her gender was! I asked the tech to let me try and guess what the gender was, which it was pretty darn obvious what she was when they pulled it up (which before we told people what the gender was, I stumped some some people when I said it was really obvious :)) hehe Otherwise, everything has been good on the homestead! 

Food cravings: anything cucumber, still 🙂 had a big craving last night (and still have it) for an Eggo Waffle with butter and syrup! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: OMG my whole protein factor has done a complete flip (I think). I totally ate chicken over the weekend and it was amazing!!!!! So as of right now, nothing really makes me queasy or sick! I’ve always been a weird texture person so if something has a weird texture, I have a hard time eating it.

Have you started to show yet: no doubt there! I can’t hide it anymore 🙂 haha not that I really was! But I’m still told once and a while that I don’t look 22 weeks pregnant!

Belly Button in or out? still in but it’s getting flatter 🙂

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: I’ve been getting happier and happier, I think mostly because life, in general, it just great! 

Weekly Wisdom: even going to the bathroom right before you go to bed doesn’t help with the 2am wake up call to pee!

Milestones: Finding out the gender and see her move around in there! It was so much fun knowing, and somehow keeping myself from telling the whole world until Ava knew! She found out Friday and was soooo exctied!

Next appointments: Next appointment with Dr. Weston is 8/25 🙂
