Weekly Update- 24+ weeks

Quick bit: Little Dude turned 1 on January 23rd. He had a great birthday week. I still have a hard time grasping he's 1 year of age in my head. His first year was seriously the fastest year of my life. Wow, they weren't kidding when they said kids speed up time! Another seperate post for his birthday shall appear on this lovely blog tonight or tomorrow (I promise, I'm keeping up with my goals for the year.)


How far along? 24 weeks...nearly 25 (I just eeked this update in, because I rock like cool socks.)

How big is baby? Last week's u/s said she's 1 pound 9 ounces...so probably more this week.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I weigh 135, which is 18 pounds up now (again healthy for me since I lost at the beginning and started out underweight with this pregnancy.)

Next Appointment: 2/12/2013

Maternity Clothes: Pants-yes. Shirts- some of both.

Sleep: I wake up  few times a night, but I'm able to go back to sleep. My dreams have been wild every night lately.

Best Moment This Week: My Mom was here the past week to help me with Little Dude, it was really nice to have her help. I cried when she left me today.

Annoyance of the Week: Not having the kind of energy I want and being unable to get my asthma under control.

Movement: Yes, tons!

Planning/Preparation:  Registered at Babies R Us, tentatively picked out a bedding set, and got the ball rolling to move to a bigger house on base.

Belly Button In/Out: Technically still in, but it's close now.

Gender: 100% girl at 23/24 weeks.

What I Miss:  I still miss cocktails (I sound like an alcoholic and I'm not, just missing what I can't have), taking full communion at Mass, and normal clothes.

What I'm Looking Forward To:  Presently- Valentine crafts with my Little Dude. Always- meeting my Little Miss

Contractions:  Quite a few!

Milestones?: Hitting viability!


  1. My Ob said full communion was fine. He said it was watered down and I was having so little it most likely wasn't harmful. You may want to ask.

  2. Glad everything is going well Liz. Im 10 weeks behind you cant wait to find out the sex here.

  3. Happy 1st birthday to lil dude! he's 1 month behind my lil miracle guy :) happy 25 weeks to you :) xoxo
