Pregnancy Update… 24 weeks pregnant!
Time for another pregnancy update! I’m 24 weeks now but almost 25 in a couple of days! (Rounding up makes it go by faster. lol)
Boy or Girl?
Most of you know by now that it’s a boy! We are so excited! See how I announced the gender with this cute and yummy recipe!
How have you been feeling?
Pretty good! I’ve been trying not to be too boring of a mom for my kids this summer. I have the most energy in the mornings so that’s when we go out the most often. Plus it’s nice to be out before it gets too hot! I take naps sometimes in the afternoon which luckily works nicely most days since Carina naps and the boys enjoy quiet time. (Most of the time.) The hardest thing has been I have a varicose vein on my right side! (Right side of my baby bump.) I didn’t even know that was possible. I only thought you could get that on your legs. Sometimes it’s not a problem at all but most days by the late afternoon/early evening it hurts. Some days a lot more than others. When it gets really bad the only thing that makes it better is lying on my left side for a bit. I hate those days because I feel lazy but luckily I’ve had more good days than bad days and I’m hoping if possible it will not bother me much the rest of my pregnancy then just go away!
I’ve had a lot of craving this pregnancy so I was shocked (my husband probably more than me) that I truly don’t have any cravings right now! For a girl who loves food this is big! lol Although I’ll admit chocolate and ice cream almost always sound good!
What recipes have you been making from your blog?
I’ve been keeping dinner simple and quick lately. I’ve been making 3-Ingredient Taco Chicken, Chicken Fajitas, Carrot Pancakes… I’ve also made 3-Minute Enchiladas for a quick lunch, Supreme Pasta Salad for a get together with my blogger friends and No-Bake Healthy Breakfast Cookies.
Are your kids still excited for another sibling?
Yes they are! They talk about him often but Asher stopped asking me as many questions as he used to. They do include him in their prayers most of the time. Carina still doesn’t have a clue what’s going on but she points to my baby bump sometimes. haha And for those of you wondering she is down to nursing 0-2 times a day! I’m thinking come July it’s time to make her stop. She’s been a perfect nurser since the first time and it’s a sweet time for bonding but it’s getting uncomfortable with my growing bump!
Like crazy! I’m only 24 weeks and he’s kicking like crazy. I’m getting worried for when he gets bigger! He moves around most often late at night and very early in the morning. I’m loving it though. I didn’t feel Carina move very much when I was pregnant with her. (My placenta was in front.)
I’m so in love with my baby boy even though I haven’t met him! I’m so excited to get another ultrasound next month since he was hiding his face last time.
