Pregnancy weight gain and photos

Yesterday’s post certainly sparked some great comments – I encourage you to check them out.  I had no idea so  many people felt the same thing at HLS or had similar experiences in other venues.  I think one thing we can all agree with is that overall, it was a fabulous weekend.  And more than that, the blogging community is pretty darn fantastic 99.9% of the time.  Those are some good odds Winking smile and I’ll take ‘em!

Moving on…

It comes every week and yet it excites me every time!  It’s Friday!  And I have some fun plans this weekend which include, seeing Contagion (love these types of movies), getting a mani/pedi, eating at Patxi’s for deep-dish pizza (I die!), and maybe going back to brunette Surprised smile

But for now, let’s just put it all out there with this pregnancy thing okay?

I had another doctor’s appointment yesterday.  Just the normal 24 week check up.

All is well with Baby Boy O Open-mouthed smile

By the numbers:

  • Weeks into pregnancy: 24.5 weeks
  • Days to go: 108 days 
  • Pounds gained: 13.2 lbs (average is 11-17 lbs)
  • Current waist size (measured at belly button): 32.5 inches ( a good 6.5” larger than normal)
  • Ta-ta size increase: 1++ cup size
  • Uterus size (weird I know – outside measurement on stomach):  I measured at 23 cm, which is just about right on.  They say after 20 weeks and 20 cm, it’s about 1 cm per week. 
  • Baby weight: >1.5 lb (according to What To Expect website)
  • Baby length: 8.5 inches crown to rump (according to What to Expect website)
  • Weeks until next ultrasound: 12 weeks!  Too long to see my lil one again!

Alright…moment of truth, here is me in a bikini at exactly 24 weeks (almost 6 months!!!  Meep!):

    I am looking forward to picking up my wedding outfit this weekend…woo hoo!

  3. Lookin hot bestie! You’re certainly rocking the skinny leg + belly pregnancy look. :-D

  4. You are carrying SO well! I hear that’s a benefit of a boy; it’s all belly and nothing else. Probably an old wives tale but I find it to be true.

  5. Straight on, you don’t really pregnant at first glance!
    I love the side pic though, awesome baby belly :-)

  6. I’m glad Baby O is doing well — and looks like you’re doing well too!
