Getting on the preggo-status-train!

How far along?
24w, 3 days

Bubba's chunk-o-meter: 
Apprx.12 inches / 30 cm, 1.32 lbs / 600 g - was told at our 21w u/s he's in the 68th percentile

My total chunk-o-meter: 
7 lbs / 3.2 kg

Stretch marks? 

Belly button status? 
Still in, but my long healed piercing scar is now all on the outside and I can feel the "button" poking a little bit.

Counting sheep? 
Toss and turn, pee twice a night, crazy dreams, wake up with tousled hair.

Foods I can't live without: 
Tomatoes and potatoes! Mmmm carbs!

Foods I can't stand: 
Hmmm... that's an unfamiliar concept...

Best moment this month: 
Diver Dude and Mamma feeling the first movements around 21,5 weeks.

Worst moment this month: 
Diver Dude spacing out on my birthday. Long story. Good ending.

YES, this is a wild little guy. Every morning and night. Seems to not like me driving or sitting down wearing jeans as he kicks right where the waist band hits :)

Almost embarrassed to say I hardly have or have had any major symptoms. Frequent nose bleeds. Stuffy nose.

We're having a son :)

What I miss? 
Sushi and Cabernet.

What I'm looking forward to? 
Getting bigger while Bubba's cooking.

Monthly Wisdom
Don't worry, be happy.

Movement felt on the outside, finding out we're having a boy and reaching viability.

Emotions: Calm as a cucumber. Mood swings, what's that? Seriously though, my anxiety levels seem to go down every week.


  1. I can't believe you're 24 weeks already....


  2. Look at you looking fabulous! Great update!

  3. Beautiful belly Mama!! Hooray for a fabulous update!! :)

  4. Wonderful update - love the pictures! I can't believe you've passed 24 weeks already - time really does fly... x

  6. That's awesome that your anxiety is going down by the week! Wishing you more calmness and happiness in this great time in your life!

  7. Here from ICLW :) I LOVE baby bump pictures. I used to say that if I ever get pregnant I'm going to walk about in belly-shirts showing off my pregnant buddha belly. I'm anxious awaiting that day.

  8. I think there's something up with blogger right now... I just tried to follow another blogger site and it failed too!

  9. Your bump is cute. I love the signs too! Have fun nursery shopping!

  10. Sweet pictures of your baby bump! Congratulations and after such a long wait!
    Stopping by from ICLW!

  11. Once again, great bump pictures! I can't wait until my husband can feel the baby move. It's such an amazing experience for us as women to feel the baby move, but to be able to share it with our husbands is just as special.

  12. I was going to send you a comment saying I wanted to see some belly pics :) and here you obliged. I can't believe you have only put on 7 lbs. I feel like a cow! But you look FANTASTIC!

  13. Hi - I'm here via ICLW (#102). What lovely pictures. Congratulations!

  14. Hooray! Love that you've taken pics of your bump every week.

  16. Congrats on your miracle baby! You look stunning :)

  17. Seriously, your belly sticks out as much as mine maybe more, but it might not be as wide as mine. And yes I will prove it! Pics are coming! :)
    Last night was not a good night for picture taking…
