24 Week Bumpdate
How Far Along: 24 weeks and 4 days
Due Date: 4/14/18
Baby is the Size of: an ear of corn! Baby #2 should weigh 1.5 lb and measure 8.5" long. At my ultrasound a week ago, she was weighing 1 lb 6 oz and was in the 50th percentile.
Weight Gain: 13 lbs.
Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting ("controlled" by Diclegis and thank God they refilled my Promethazine), MOODY, emotional, fatigue, Depression, super EXHAUSTED, round ligament pain and lower back/ tailbone pain. I also started experiencing pretty bad upper abdominal pain accompanied by back pain, thought they felt similar to braxton hicks except they were painful and the Dr claims my uterus isn't up high yet where I thought I was feeling them. My Drs office wanted to see me and took some blood work to check my liver and pancreas. My gallbladder is also of concern. The Dr refilled by Promethazine and told me to take 2 Zantac (anti-acid) a day and see if that helps.
Name: Violet Jameson
Movement: Yes! It is crazy to feel this much movement since I never felt this much with Rory. Jesse has felt some but most of it is still felt from the inside.
Nursery: Mermaid themed! Can't wait to get to work on this but need to get more done to the rest of our house first.
Maternity Clothes: I never fully stopped wearing some of my maternity clothes b/c my small pair of maternity jeans are my jean size and a lot of my tops didn't look like maternity tops. So yea, I'm in maternity clothes and perfectly happy.
Sleep: Same old, same old. I sleep but never feel like I got sleep.
Best Moment(s) of the Week: Rory's 1st birthday party and her actual birthday- I can't believe we have a 1 year old!!! Getting to see Violet on the ultrasound at MFM and my mom went with me this time which she was really excited about. Christmas Eve and Christmas! And we took Rory to see Star Wars The Last Jedi!
Cravings & Aversions: Nothing is standing out but I have become more fond of sour patch kids. I also drank orange juice the other week b/c I had a sore throat (the only time I drink orange juice) and ended up picking some up at the store. It also makes Violet more active. I didn't try orange juice when I was pregnant with Rory but apple juice always got her moving at my non stress tests.
Mood: MOODY. I am soooo much more moodier this pregnancy and emotional.
Looking Forward to: Working on getting the new house more unpacked, things assembled and organized, and the decor up.
