Bump Diary #5 – 24 week update
How far along are you? 24 weeks and 5 days
How big is baby? This week baby is as long as an ear of corn! On average around 30cms long and weighing 600 grams.
Body and changes:
– Weight gain Feeling even bigger than last week and hardly carrying Mr D now as he is getting too heavy. The other day I was on my feet, doing housework and was lifting Mr D a few times and by the evening I felt a bit sore down in my pelvis.
– Stretch marks Again, same as last week and still rubbing Bio Oil and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter all over my bump in the mornings and evenings. I haven’t noticed any new stretch marks.
– Sleep Been getting onto the Quick-Eze this past week as the reflux and heartburn just seems to be burning my throat everytime I go to bed and it’s taking me so long to get to sleep. I need to stop eating such big servings and avoid eating to much chili, garlic and onion!
Maternity clothes? I haven’t bought anything new but will probably do so in the next week – I just want to be as comfy as possible
The Other Stuff: Sorry in advance for TMI lol! – I never normally have the need to use deodorant but even when I was pregnant with Daniel I remember having to use it and lots of it! The hubby says he doesn’t notice anything and that I always smell nice but maybe he’s just being sweet…either way I’m loving the Dove Go Fresh Cucumber and Green Tea spray (I’ll post a June favourites this week!).
Eating: I have managed to resist the urge to grab a Kit Kat this week haha! Been reaching for strawberries and pears 🙂
Feeling a little tired this week and my bump has been feeling heavy and hard.
Needing a trip to the hairdresser desperately! Need a trim and to get my ends coloured.
Wanting to fix up my blog and update everything but every time I seem to sit down to get productive online when Mr D goes to bed, the internet is never working! Hubby says it’s time to reformat my laptop.
Missing: Being able to try on clothes at the stores and fit into everything.
Watching Sweet Home Alabama and also finally made it to the movies for a date night with the family! Mr D sat through the whole Minions movie thoroughly enjoying the experience and the games afterwards! 🙂

Noticing: My thighs double in size :/
Enjoying Papa’s prawn, gnocchi and rocket dish – Sunday dinners at my parent’s house is the best! Also enjoying spending some time visiting fellow Rewind mama friends 🙂 Enjoyed baking these crunchy topped cinnamon muffins (below), love how freshly baked muffins and sweets fill the house with the smell of a warm bakery.
D has really been developing such longer sentences and every day he continues to say phrases that I’ve never heard him say before. Every morning though, I feel so bad leaving him as he certainly knows how set me on a guilt trip, “Mummy don’t leave me. Don’t leave me. Only daddy can go to work, you stay with me and Daddy will go to work by himself”. Wow! So thankful I get to watch the hubby and son play and enjoy lots of time together playing cars, but also outside on bike rides and watching the soccer games in the park nearby.
Daddy: Daniel do you want to say thanks for anything today?
Daniel: Thank you for watching Minions and uhhh thank you to lolo for cooking yummy dinner.
I can’t believe how fast a toddler can pick up new words, phrases and feelings.
