Pregnancy Journal – 24 Weeks Pregnant

This has been another rough week. I guess I shouldn’t complain but this is, after all my journal of how I’m feeling, right? I’ve been tired, moody, easily irritated, and in pain here and there (nothing major, just complaining!). I am now 24 weeks pregnant and I am hoping my moods and how I am feeling gets better. Soon. But then again, I’ve been waiting for that to happen for a while, haven’t I? 😉

About Baby This Week: (from BabyCenter.com) Your baby’s growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at about 1 1/3 pounds. Since he’s almost a foot long (about the size of an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he’ll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing “branches” of the respiratory “tree” as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

How am I feeling? Ugh. Does that describe it? I’ve been moody, sad, on edge, in pain. All of it. lol The pain is mostly when I walk. I have this pain on the inside fold of my upper right leg. Every. Time. I. Walk. It feels like a pulled muscle but I’ve done nothing to pull a muscle. My back hurts. I walk so slowly because of it. I’m tired. I have ambition to get the things done around the house but no motivation to do them.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I’ve been wanting chocolate. And Chinese food. And anything I don’t have to cook. lol

Sleep: I feel like I’ve not had a good night’s sleep in a while. I get up on average three times each night to go to the restroom. I wake numerous times to turn over.

Baby’s Movement: I feel her a lot more this past week. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! <3

Weight: Same. Yes, at 24 weeks I’ve still not gained or lost weight.

Next Appointment: My next appointment is scheduled for Thursday but I have to call and reschedule it as I can’t get off of work to go.

What happened this week? Hubby and I went on a date night to the Josh Groban concert!!!!  It was AMAZING!!!!!  Great performance! I was off of work for four days straight and it was fabulous!!!!

Something that upset me: My job. It’s getting really stressful and will only get worse between now and December. I am so over it and really want to quit when baby arrives. I just need to figure out a way to supplement our income. Yes, same as last week. I have had a few overwhelming moments at home too. I feel like there is so much to do and no energy to keep up with it all so I get edgy with hubby. Poor guy.

Something I am looking forward to: The holidays. They are getting close and I love them…even though I know it will add stress, I’m going to try and just be positive and enjoy family time!

Boy or Girl? Those strong feelings I had early on about gender proved to be right!!! We’re having a girl!!!!!!!!

Countdown: 16 weeks to go if we go to 40 weeks! At this rate I am just praying all of the stress on my job doesn’t put me into early labor.

Another Journal: Check out Courtney’s 19 week journal at Joy of Momma Joyner!

Pregnant? How is it going this week?
