24 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #3

18 Weeks
I turned 24 weeks last week, which means I'm now about 6 months along, or 2/3 of the way through!

So here's my 24 week pregnancy update:

Weight this week: 124.8 pounds - up about 5 pounds from 20 weeks!

Measurement around waist: 30 1/2"

Measurement around belly: 33"

How big is baby? Baby weighs about 1 1/3 pounds (we're measuring in pounds instead of ounces now!), and is about a foot long from head to heel. About the size of an ear of corn!

Maternity Clothes: I picked up a few sweaters from a thrift store to get me through the winter. For some reason non-maternity sweaters tend to fit better than other "regular" clothing items.

I also bought a PJ set from Majamas because my regular PJ pants are starting to get uncomfortable!

Movement: Yes! I can tell already that baby is getting hiccups. It's not a fun feeling - kind of annoying. It's only going to get worse as baby gets bigger. I can see the baby move through clothes now. One night as I was falling asleep Reuben told me that the baby kicked his hand really hard. I mumbled my reply and drifted off...

Cravings: I've been craving sweets recently. Nothing too crazy though.

Fall Around the House


Since fall is my favorite time of the year, I thought it only fitting to bring some of those cozy, nostalgic vibes into the house. I'm not skilled at home decor by any means, but here are a few ways I've decorated our house for the season.

A basket lined with a checkered dish towel and filled with apples made the table pretty.

20 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #3

18 Weeks
I turned 20 weeks last week, which means I'm over halfway there! Woohoo!

So here's my 20 week pregnancy update:

Weight this week: 120 pounds - we're out of the teens now!

Measurement around waist: 29 1/4"

Measurement around belly: 31 1/4"

How big is baby? Baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces, and is 10 inches from head to heel. About the size of a large banana!

Maternity Clothes: I'm mostly making due with the clothes that I had last time I was pregnant, but I've been adding a few shirts here and there. I'm on the hunt for the perfect maternity dress...

Movement: Yes, lots! It's no longer little flutters: I can feel the baby rolling around in there and jabbing at me. I've also started to notice a pattern of movement: usually when I sit down or go to bed. Of course.

Cravings: Nothing in particular these days. Just good, hearty food.
