Happy Saturday! It’s time for another pregnancy update. This week marked 24 weeks pregnant and I am absolutely ecstatic. We have been stressed for weeks now because of the risk of preterm labor I have been dealing with. Thankfully the 24th week is when most babies reach the viability level so even though we want her cooking a lot longer we have been able to relax a little bit.
If you need to catch up on all the pregnancy craziness then be sure to check out:
24 Weeks Pregnant Update
Baby is the size of an eggplant!
This week has actually been significantly better than previous weeks! I’ve greatly decreased the amount of contractions that I’ve had and my hyperemesis gravidarum is much better controlled. I’ve almost been able to eat somewhat normally!
Working out and running still. I’m feeling a lot better but still do not have the all clear from my doctor to workout and I honestly doubt I’m going to get it anytime soon, but we shall see.
Sleep/Crazy Dream Recap
Sleep has been a bit iffy but mostly because my toddler has had a weird week whenever it comes to sleep. He has never really slept through the night completely, but he has been waking up 3-4 times a night this week so it’s been an adjustment.
I’ve had a couple crazy dreams. The one that stood out the most is my dream where, I heard my son James crying in the middle of the night from his room but he was actually laying in bed with me. Then I woke my husband up (in the dream) and asked what was going on but he jumped out of bed because there was an old lady looking through our bed room window. After that I called the police to come and get the lady to go away. What was so odd is neither of us acted like it wasn’t normal! It was like “oh I guess we have to get her to go away again.”
I definitely woke up wondering what the heck that was about afterwards!
I’m still wanting salads and fruit more than anything. I honestly think that has more to do with the insanely hot weather rather than the pregnancy but either way I’ll take it!
I’m still not a fan of most meats. I don’t really want much to do with it!
Still no true exercise. I’m allowed to walk short distances now which is nice because I can’t get out with my little man. Plus I’ve been spending a lot of time in the pool with James because it’s so hot here.
I feel like this pregnancy is going by so slowly, but I think I’ll be able to suck it up if I have some more good weeks like this one!
