Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 24

Follow Me on Pinterest

Doctor Appointments: 
Dec. 20-- Going into my appointment I had the FLU. :( So I had to wear a mask the entire time. All they did was check my weight and talk to me about how I've been feeling. They also checked baby's heartbeat which they always have a hard time finding. After 20 minutes of Brantley kicking the monitor away from my tummy, we finally got a BPM of 166.

Jan. 21-- NEXT APPOINTMENT (I take the glucose test)

Food cravings: Tomato sandwiches, chips & dip and ice cream.

Symptoms: Brantley is a very busy little boy and he's mostly active late at night. Anytime I lay my arm on my belly, he's determined to kick it away. My breast are producing a great amount of colostrum now. I've been feeling really tired this week but I still have bursts of energy where I go into super nesting mode.

Weight gain: I've gained 16 pounds so far.

(before pregnancy while standing up, it was 32 inches) 
(while lying down)Below the navel- 39.5 inches. 
(while lying down)Above the navel- 36 inches.

Sleep: A body pillow has become my best friend. It's so much easier to sleep with a pillow under my tummy and between my legs. I still get up at least once a night to use the restroom.

Chloe's thoughts: Chloe seems like she'll be very protective and maybe a little jealous. She actually told my mom that the baby can't come to her house because he needs to stay at our house, But she also said that my mom can come visit our house to see him.  I'm trying to remind Chloe that the things we are buying for baby, she once had those when she was a baby too. I even try to get her a little gift when we bring in new things for Brantley's room so she won't feel like he's getting tons of new toys and she doesn't get anything.
