Baby #2: Pregnancy update 24 Weeks


I decided to share another update with you guys. I’m feeling so much better this week and I love looking back on these updates so I figure I should log more of them!!

With only a few weeks left in the 2nd trimester I am feeling good and happy that I have been able to do almost everything comfortably at this point!!


The Baby is the size of a CANTALOUPE

Weight gained

No weight gain this past week, up about 13 lbs


It’s a BOY!!!

My workouts this past week were back to normal

here’s how they looked:

WEDNESDAY 1 hour Group Power Strength training class plus 20 minute walk with Cooper

THURSDAY Fit For Life class & Boot camp class

FRIDAY 30 minute walk with Cooper

SATURDAY 25 minute Cardio Boxing workout

SUNDAY 20 minute Walk with Cooper

MONDAY Fit For Life class & Group Power class

TUESDAY 20 Minute walk with Cooper & Boot Camp Class


My only symptom this past week was exhaustion. i was tired a lot and I napped way more then I normally would. I think that is due to chasing a toddler, walking the dog, teaching lots of classes and of course being pregnant on top of it!


Food Aversions: 

NO AVERSIONS… that feels amazing ;)

Food Cravings: 

  • BROWNIES…. I had 2 brownie sundaes this past week! I have no guilt about it either!
  • Salads. I am totally on board with this craving. It’s healthy, easy to make, and now that the weather is nice it’s refreshing.
  • Chicken Cutlets
  • Avocado
  • Eggs cooked any way!
  • POTATOES… all of them


My sleep this past week hasn’t been great and that’s probably why I’m napping more. Ava has been waking up in the middle of the night which is totally not cool and also random so I’m praying it’s just a phase. Last night was a great night though everyone slept amazing. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

Besides that I know my body wants to sleep like a rock!

Maternity clothes: 

Most of my workout pants are uncomfortable to wear because of the tight waistband. I have a few bigger size capris that I’m sticking too. I am also rocking some maternity leggings & tops!! They are too comfortable not to wear.

Stretch marks: 

None yet!

Do I Miss anything: 

I miss laying on my belly!!! This one has been tough for me but I am sticking to sleeping on my side.

I miss ab work. Planks are great but I miss all that core rotation and twisting. I also miss having strength to do full body pushups. I engage my core too much on that so it’s currently out of my workout routine for the most part.


Baby boy is on the move and has shocked me on several occasions during the day when I am working. He is most active after I eat fruit or at night when I’m ready to fall asleep!!!

Baby Items Purchased: 

I haven’t purchased anything in a while but I’m looking forward to getting his room all set up!!

Wedding rings ON or OFF: 


Belly Button IN or OUT? 

My belly button is in on some days and out on others. I know that’s weird but it depends on the baby’s position. I’m not a fan of the outie belly button it just feels weird.

I’m Looking Forward To: 

These past few days have been nice weather wise and I’m enjoying being outside with Ava & Cooper. I’m looking forward to more warm weather days so I can enjoy my time with them before the baby arrives!

I’m also looking forward to my check up at the Dr’s office next week. I love hearing the heart beat!

Random Things:

There was one night this past week that the baby was having a dance party in my belly. He made some crazy moves in there and one of them I feel like I never experienced with Ava. I have a feeling this little guy is going to be a little stronger with her. That makes me nervous for those bigger movements in the 3rd trimester!!

I do love the movements though so he can keep them coming!!!
