24 weeks 516x1024 Baby G 24 Weeks!


A difference from 17 weeks!

17weeks 683x1024 Baby G 24 Weeks! 

I am just beaming with excitement thinking of how soon this little man will be here! I really have already been thinking about how sad I am going to be once I am not pregnant anymore, but focusing on enjoying every minute with this beautiful bump!

 Baby G This Week!
  • Over a pound! I am feeling that he is getting bigger for sure!
  • Length of an ear of corn. Amazing how small he really still is on there, my bump begs to differ, haha!
  • Pretty lean figure but soon he will start to plump up proportionally, I will too! LOL!
  • Taste buds are continuing to develop. He must be loving the salty and sweet, big craving always and I assume he is loving it too!
  • Lungs are developing “branches” of the respiratory “tree” as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. ( source )


How I Am Feeling!

  • Lots of energy still, which is fabulous and I know will probably dwindle in the last trimester. Loving it for now and hoping to keep it going for as long as I can!
  • Constipation, been bad the past two weeks, that is never fun  icon eek Baby G 24 Weeks!
  • Peeing non stop! I swear I go pee more than a human should in one day, yikes!
  • Some cramps, nothing horrible.
  • Weird taste in mouth like a lead taste sometimes, so weird!
  • Glowing, wish I had this glow all year round!

Weight Gain? Not sure, get weighed next week at the doctor for my 25 week appointment.

Cravings? I have been craving smoothies a lot this past week, but besides that, nothing different!

Food Aversions? Cereal with almond milk, a NO NO and yet I still try to do it. Coffee, for 3 weeks now coffee has been a yuck!

Mood? Happy as ever and VERY excited for upcoming things like the nursery to get done, babymoon, and baby shower!

Best Moments? Baby G has been MORE active than ever this past week. I feel him move so much every day, even big kicks and punches, haha! BEST moment was the other night when Mike felt him kick for the first time! Mike was in awe and was SO happy! We were lying in bed and Baby G was moving lots so I had Mike put his hand on my belly hoping he would feel and he did! He loved it, was so exciting to share that moment and feeling with him!

I have been trying to have Mike feel him kick, but when I would it seemed Baby G would stop. This time we had success, plus the baby is moving more than ever now so it was easier!

Stretch Marks? Nada!

Maternity Clothes? I still was able to wear my regular jeans, a miracle really, I was shocked! I wore them to my friends baby shower last week, I am carrying SO high. I have just been wearing leggings mostly and got some good deals at target for tops on clearance that I just bought in a bigger size. I am wearing one of the tops in my pic of me for 24 weeks.

I just ordered some more maternity tanks and leggings off old navy since they had a 30 percent off sale running that ended yesterday, caught the deal!

Movement? YES! I got a ninja in there, haha!

Labor Signs? Nooooooooo!

Belly Button In or Out? It is still a halfway, doesn’t know if it wants to pop out fully yet, lol.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On still!

Fitness Going On :

I have been doing so good and having so much energy, so fitness has been going strong! I have been working out 5 days a week!

  • Weights at home about 3 days a week! I have been doing some of Blonde Ponytails prenatal workouts for strength, love them!
  • Tracy Anderson Month 6 Pregnancy Project workout, did this one last week and it rocks!
  • Cardio outside yesterday, nice long power walk!

Baby G Purchases!


Ok, the clothing shopping does need to stop, lol! I saw how many outfits my friend got for her baby at her shower and know Baby G will be getting lots too!

But……. these were only 3 dollars at TJ Maxx and super cute!

The shark butt outfit was on sale at Babies R Us and mike and I loved it! Clothes are piling up BUT we are done as of now. Maybe  icon wink Baby G 24 Weeks!

IMG 7005 1024x1024 Baby G 24 Weeks!


We did put clothes on our Babies R Us and Target Registry, so we want to just hold off! Babies grow soooo fast and hardly wear anything more than twice! We are just so excited, it is hard to resist sometimes!


Sleep has been so/so and this has been helping me, thanks BFF!


She got me this a while ago and I just opened it the other night, really has helped! The snoogle I do love, but I think will be more beneficial when i get bigger and post pregnancy too.

I have also been reading to Baby G the past couple weeks since I know he can hear me. I used to read to Anthony when he was in my belly and I think it is a great thing to do and I really do enjoy just some quiet time in the day reading him a book.

I read him this the other day and he was moving, I think he was rocking out in there and enjoyed the book! Haha!

Looking Forward To….

  • The nursery getting painted tonight, will be started and then finished on Friday! I am very excited to start decorating after that, we need to order our nursery furniture too!
  • Baby shower invites! I am picking them up today from the printer, I will share a picture of them too! Hoping they cam e out cute!
  • Dinner Friday night with my BFF to talk more baby shower plans. I am trying to get everything organized and set with that since I have to go to Chicago the first weekend of April for business and then Mike and I will be off to Chicago that following week! Crazy month! Shower is April 21st, yay!

Just really enjoying every day until Baby G comes, June 26th is the E.D.D. but who knows when for sure!

Oh and womp womp, my breast pump is not covered, so got to get one! I do need your help with what accessories I need! I am ordering this pump here.

What accessories do I need as far as pads, bottles, and more?

If you have a baby or currently pregnant, what color are you doing your nursery? We are doing yellow, grey, white, and blue!

I think it’s really great that you are staying so active throughout your pregnancy. I am sure it will make recovery that much easier! :) You look amazing!

You are such a champ for working out so much! That is fantastic that you have all this energy! I hope it keeps up for you :)

You’re looking great! Why don’t you register for a pump? That way if you don’t get it gifted to you, you can always buy it later!


5 Angela @ Health's Angel March 6, 2013 at 8:42 am

You look amazing!!!


6 My Neon Running Shoes March 6, 2013 at 8:49 am

How fun! It sounds like smooth sailing so far and I hope it continues that way for you! He will be here so soon!


7 Claire @ Flake And Cake March 6, 2013 at 9:03 am

You really do have a gorgeous glow Katie! So cute that you read to Baby G, must be such a special time for you both to share. Love seeing how your pregnancy is going <3


8 Krystal March 6, 2013 at 9:29 am

I’m not pregnant, and won’t be anytime soon…but, you’re such an inspiration to me!


9 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 6, 2013 at 9:57 am

I love how you’ve been able to stay so active so far through your pregnancy. I’m sure that’s helping with your beautiful glow.


10 Healthy Diva March 6, 2013 at 12:41 pm

Thank you so much Katie! :)


11 Allison March 6, 2013 at 10:39 am

You are absolutely beautiful! And so active! I can only hope I’m like that when pregnant.


12 Healthy Diva March 6, 2013 at 12:38 pm

Thank you for that very sweet compliment! I know you will be the same way with pregnancy one day!


13 Sarah March 6, 2013 at 12:05 pm

Another great prego workout is The Bar Method Pregnancy Workout. Not that you need any more to add to you extensive list and you definitely look amazing!
Also, here’s some info on a “green” and healthy nursery, I’m sure you already know all this but it’s still good info to share!


14 Healthy Diva March 6, 2013 at 12:36 pm

Thank you for that recommendation! I am actually going to try a physique 57 prenatal barre workout this week! I am excited to do it!

Thanks for that link too Sarah!


15 Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear March 6, 2013 at 12:16 pm

awwww you are seriously looking so adorbs!


16 Lisa C. March 6, 2013 at 12:41 pm

Staying fit during pregnancy is so healthy for you and baby. Good for you!


17 Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots March 6, 2013 at 12:53 pm

your bump is getting big, but you look fantastic! I love those socks, so adorable!


18 natalie @ will jog for food March 6, 2013 at 2:12 pm

I’m still pregnant, so I don’t know exactly what else I need for the breast pump, but I got Lanisoh disposable pads, Lanisoh storage bags, Tommy Tippee bottles, and Motherlove Nipple Cream. I heard that most women need a different size nipple attachment for the breast pump too but waiting on that (the medela comes with a medium size).

You look great! Awesome job with the workouts. I can’t believe that I’ll be starting Tracy Anderson Month 9 next week, yikes! So far, Month 7 and 8 are really good, you do most of the exercises using a chair, which is always nice :)


19 Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie March 6, 2013 at 2:24 pm

Everything is coming together for you so well! I’m so excited for you girly!


20 Jess @ Blonde Ponytail March 6, 2013 at 2:24 pm

Looking fantastic and helping me stay accountable too!! I love reading these updates!! ;)


21 Emily March 6, 2013 at 10:26 pm

You’re absolutely glowing, Katie! So excited for you!


22 Healthy Diva March 7, 2013 at 8:48 am

Thank you!!! <3


23 Min March 11, 2013 at 7:08 am

You are absolutely gorgeous, my dear friend! Just radiant! I felt my nephew, Noah, kicking when he was inside my sis’ belly (that was more than a year ago!) and that was quite something! Baby shower and decorating the nursery sounds like so much fun!


24 Healthy Diva March 11, 2013 at 12:20 pm

You are so sweet Min! Thank you so much! Time is flying!!!! <3


25 Nidhi Saurabh Khare March 11, 2013 at 7:26 am
