Week 12: Pregnancy report 24 week appointment
Friday, March 25, 2011
So yesterday I had my 24 week appointment. I can't believe 6 months already. Only 16 more weeks left
. I get to take another belly shot on Sunday
. So now my appointments are as followed. Wait for 45 minutes, then get called back, pee in cup
get weighed and blood pressured taken. Then head back to see the OB who just listens to the baby's heartbeat and that's it. So the whole things takes about 10 minutes. So the wait time is much much longer than the actual visit. I guess that's a good thing right.
So my big news is that I'm up a total of 17lbs
. I was totally stressing over the 24 week weigh in. With baby#1, I had gained 10lbs in 4 weeks so I was hoping that wasn't going to happen this time and it didn't only 5lbs. So you think 17lbs really isn't that bad for being 24 weeks and it isn't. I'm averaging about .71lbs a week. But I only gained 1lbs in the first 12 weeks and 16lbs in the second 12 weeks. Well I guess that is the way it's supposed to be right. The baby is definitely getting bigger everyday.
Step class is going amazingly well. Here I thought I was done 3 weeks ago and I'm still hanging strong. I had 1 lady ask me how I was feeling. Then she gave me a compliment and said that most women would have stopped a long time ago. It made me feel really good. Now if there is a day that I feel like I can't do step, then I don't. I'll still go to the gym but maybe just walk on the treadmill and lift lights weights. Speaking of weights, I'm meeting with my personal trainer Tuesday night. I want to find core exercises that I can do now that I'm starting to get those pregnancy aches and pains. I also noticed that when I did do my weight lifting I get aches also. So I really need him to work something out for me to be able to do.
Well I think that's all for now. Oh no it isn't. We have decided on a name for my little guy, Nathanael Jobe. Hubby wants it spelled the way they do it in the Bible. I was cool with that. So in the end, I got what I wanted
