My 24 week pregnancy update - Baby is the size of a Cantaloupe. What cravings i've had, maternity wear? and more...

Today I wanted to share with you all my 24 week pregnancy update, I know it’s been ages since my last one, but to be honest, there really wasn’t that much to share, as it’s been just as plain sailing as my 1st pregnancy with L.

So here goes… 24 weeks. Β Baby is the size of a Cantaloupe

Symptoms:

In terms of symptoms, i’ve not had too many and i’ve not started nesting yet, but i’m sure that will soon kick in, which will mean me spending endless hours upstairs sorting clothes out and washing them etc ready for when baby S is here.

24 week symptoms so far…

  • Tiredness
  • Round ligament pains
  • Weight gain
  • Slight back pain

Diet/Cravings:

When I was pregnant with L, I had quite a few cravings and food aversions which were the worst because i’d only have to see a picture of it and I would feel nauseous. But this time around I’ve had hardly any cravings and no aversions at all. I’m trying to eat as healthy as I can for S, but it’s so difficult when you just can’t be bothered cooking, unless I hire a personal chef (which is never going to happen because only the rich and famous have them!)

24 week cravings so far…

  • Apples
  • Chocolate based deserts

What I wear:

In terms of my style this pregnancy, I mainly just wear my usual clothes, I don’t own any maternity jeans or anything like that, I mainly just wear really stretchy leggings, and jeggings and sometimes my regular jeans, but let’s face it, they’re far too uncomfortable, why suffer? I may have to invest in some maternity stuff, however I do have a couple of nursing bras which are super comfortable, and they are super cheap! You even get sent a free one in return for a good review!

The bump:

As far as my bump, I finally feel that I have one, that doesn’t just like i’ve eaten 1 too many profiteroles! lol. By the way I ordered this tshirt off ebay, i think it’s a bit tight for me and not too happy but it does show off my bump well in photo’s which i suppose is the point! Wave hello to baby skeleton S!

    Love love love your top. Good luck for the rest of pregnancy. Sounds like you’ve had a good one so far. My last one was horrific but he’s 20 weeks old now and fills our lives with so much joy, the bad stuff is a distant blur xx

    Glad to hear it’s been smooth sailing so far! I like that t-shirt too, it’s awesome. XD

    I love your tee-shirt. I wish I’d have had something like that when I was pregnant with my little boy as he would have been around the same stage as you are now as he was due on 28th December (although he didn’t arrive until 3rd January) x
