24 Weeks Pregnant

I got the results of my follow-up ultrasound today and it was ALL CLEAR. I was worried for nothing. His stomach measured perfectly and his fingers were all accounted for 😉

Otherwise, we’ve been so busy and distracted by other things (work, home buying, parenting) that we haven’t thought about the pregnancy that much. Eventually I’m going to have to come up with a birth plan that includes where I’d ideally like to give birth and whom will look after Avery… But we also kind of need to wait and see what happens with the pandemic to know what the best plan will be… I have no fucking clue who I would ask to look after her at this point. That’s a little stressful.

Bodily Experiences This Week

Hip pain. Sciatica. Whatever it is… It’s a bitch. I’m also really hungry all the time and loving the baby bump at this stage.

Baby This Week

13″ long and weighs 1.5lbs. He has also reached the age of viability, which is always reassuring. We have narrowed the names down to two but we haven’t been devoting enough time to thinking about names or testing them out and I’m sure it’ll be up in the air until much closer to his arrival!

  1. Congratulations on your Covid baby. I had my son in December and I swear he came out doing wayyy more than my other 3. These babies grow up way too fast! Oan the doctor visits and things were so stressful this time around because of the pandemic. I hope you’re making it ok

  2. So glad all of the ultrasound concerns turned out to be ok! Our biggest struggle right now is also planning for the care of our daughter while we are in the hospital – she pretty much hasn’t left my side since the pandemic started and my company went fully remote. We’ve been having a few visits with my mom and sister/her kids to get her warmed back up to the idea of being with other people. That has definitely been the most stressful part of planning this time around!
