Bump Watch: Week 24

How Far Along:: 24 weeks

Size of Baby:: Little Miss Kemp is the size of a cantaloupe!

Gender:: Girl!

Stretch Marks:: I do not believe so.

Sleep::Going good, maybe a little too well. I was able to peal myself out the bed for an early morning workout today, but more often than not, I go after work. trying to return to my early morning workout sessions so I can get more accomplished throughout the day! 

 Exercise:: Going good. I am starting to see a little decrease in my strength which is a slight bummer. On Tuesday, we did split jerks. Back a few months, I was able to do 95lbs for a 2-rep max. I only did 85lbs on Tuesday. My back issues and the overall tightening feeling of my stomach has me a little more cautious, rightfully so. But, I still frequent the gym and hit the treadmill often. This momma is not complaining. 

Cravings::This past weekend, I yearned for some double-stuffed oreos! Coach got me a small package and I was very happy! If we have the full-size package, I eat all the cookies in a few days! I too have been drinking more chocolate almond milk as well.

Miss Anything::Nope

Symptoms:: Back aches/pain. I have a slight case of scoliosis and honestly can't say my back pains are related to that or the pregnancy. I was walking at pretty intense incline, a level 6, but have since lessened my incline as I believe that is contributing to the back pains.

Belly Button In or Out::In

Movement:: Little Miss Kemp notifies me when it is time to eat, and then becomes even more active after all of my meals! It is so very cute!

Best Moment of the Week:: I had a massage on Friday, when I turned 24 weeks. It was glorious!

On My Mind:: Tonight's dinner, lol! I enjoy trying new recipes, what about you? Check out my weekly meal plans and try a few of the recipes!

Looking Forward To:: Selection Sunday! Did you read my post about Conference Championships! I will have an updated post about conference winners thus far tomorrow!

  1. It's normal to feel some discomforts during pregnancy. I'm glad that you are cautious with your activities and you do exercise, which will help prevent your slight-case of scoliosis from getting worse. Have you considered consulting with a chiropractor for your pains? This alternative treatment is safe for pregnant. Take care, Michelyn!
