24 Weeks & a Milestone

Please excuse my messy ponytail and dark roots. I will be brunette in just a few short days so I figure there was no point in hiding them any longer. Ha! But here is a little peak at my 24 week belly.

That little bugger is growing like a weed and getting SO active! I feel him most at night and in the morning. Although, whenever I have a little too much sugar, he lets me know :-)

24 weeks is a pretty important milestone during pregnancy, and I have to say I am just as excited to hit it this time as I was last time. As many doctors will tell you, at 24 weeks, a baby has a fighting chance if born prematurely. There are no guarantees, but every day from here on out the baby is getting stronger and the odds are getting better. I just can't help but take some comfort in knowing that. Although, I hope this little peanut keeps cooking until the new year. And if he is anything like his big sister, he will stick it out to the very last day :-)

So, besides hitting this great milestone, I also had a doctors appointment today and learned that I passed my glucose test! Woohoo! I am a little low on iron (which is always the case) so I will have to take some extra vitamins. But my blood pressure was good, the baby's heartbeat was nice and strong, and I have only gained a total of 6 pounds. I don't know how that is possible (I think their scale might be off) but I am going to enjoy it now because once I hit about 25 weeks last time, the pounds just kept coming...and coming...and coming. And I am sure it had nothing to do with my late night milkshake runs. Ha!

Well I hope you all had a great day! I know Addie and I did :-) We have her 18 month doc appointment tomorrow. Boo for shots! But hopefully her visit will go as well as mine.


  1. You look so cute! Good luck at the doctors tomorrow!

  2. Ahh! I was hoping we'd get a chance to see the bump again! You look beautiful! I can only hope that when I'm pregnant I'm in as good of shape as you are right now! So happy you've hit an important milestone!

    Keep us updated :)

  3. I can't get over how freakin adorable you are. If I looked that good pregnant, I might actually consider another one!

  4. Man...your pregnancy is flying by! I can't believe you're 24 weeks already! Before you know it...he'll be here! Wow! :)

  5. Your belly is soo cute Jen! And only 6lbs...that's great!!! Keep the belly shots coming!

  6. Awww, you look so cute and i love the scarf!

  7. Your belly is so cute. You can definitely tell it is a boy by the way you are carrying.

    Good luck for Addie at the Dr. I hate when they have to get shots.

  8. Loving your bump!! Yay for 24 weeks and a healthy mom and baby!!

  9. You're so freakin' cute! I'm glad everything was fine at the Dr. and hope little Miss Addie doesn't hate the shots... too much! :0)
