24 week bumpdate


Due to the overwhelming positive response, I will be doing every couple week bumpdates.  Please feel free to skip them if seeing a weird alien belly gives you the willies.  I have every couple week pictures from my pregnancy with Eva also so I will post those along with my current pics to see how different (ie bigger) my belly is the second time around.  I am 24.5 weeks pregnant today.
How far along? 24 weeks
Size of baby? Ear of corn
Weight gain? +16 pounds 
Sleep?  Fantastic lately.
Best Moment of the Week? Food.  Guilt free holiday eating is fantastic.
Miss anything? Not being pregnant.  I am over it.  I am thankful that my body is sustaining this pregnancy and that I am having a healthy baby (so far) but I am not enjoying this pregnancy.  I want MY body back.
Movement? Yes.  All day and all night.  He is a wild animal.
Food Cravings? Nothing specific just food in general.
Gender? BOY!
Name?  Still deciding.  I like formal names (Eva's real name is Evangeline.  I want a more formal name for him too that can be shortened).  We have a short list of names we like.  Nathaniel (Nate) is currently at the top of the list.
Symptoms? Pregnant (read that as fat, pimples, cellulite).
Belly button in or out? Mostly out.   
Looking forward to: Entering into 2013.  When I got pregnant, 2013 was SOO far away.  Now it's here.  That means this pregnancy is well under way.  Thankfully.  
Next baby boy check-up?: January 7 is his next growth scan (For more information about why he has to be seen by a specialist every couple weeks, click here)

  1. Wow, you look great! And I really like the name Nathaniel. If we ever have a boy, we plan to name him after my late brother-in-law, Nathan. He was a great guy, so I am fond of any resemblance of that name.

  2. You do look good Jamie! I feel like I'd be a lot like you if I was pregnant...I really do want the baby but I dont feel an overwhelming desire to be pregnant.

  3. Hey mama! Even though you want your body back, you are looking fab so far...and you're more than halfway there so that's a plus. The hubby and I have been kinda trying for baby #2 and although I want another one soon, not sure if I'm ready to give up my body again! Does the 2nd pregnancy go by a lot quicker than the 1st? Hope you had a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year :)

  4. You look great!! I got fat EVERYWHERE when I was pregnant with Madison. Especially my NOSE! lol.

  5. I totally feel you, I am OVER being pregnant. Yes, I want little girl to grow and develop as needed, but I want to feel like myself again.

    You are looking great!!!

  6. You look absolutely gorgeous pregnant! Very healthy and definitely glowing!
