24 weeks!

Pregnancy Facts and Figures:

Size of baby: Elliott Faith is the size of a an ear of corn, is ~12" long, weighing in at just over a pound.

Total Weight Gain: ~10 lbs. My heart still speeds up a little every Monday morning when I step on the scale... then I remember I am "weighing for two.":)

Clothes: Still a combo of regular and maternity. I am wearing maternity more and more. I thought my maternity wardrobe was set... it definitely isn't ready for "dress up" events or cold weather.

Gender: It's a girl! Elliott Faith Ross. We will probably start out calling her either Ellie or Elle

Movement: She has settled down a little bit this week. Still moves a ton when I stop moving, or lay down. I think she went through another growth spurt, and might be a bit more cramped. :)

Sleep: Surprisingly, sleeping much better this week - way more comfortable!

Cravings: HONEY CRISP APPLES! Can NOT get enough of these yummy things!!!

Symptoms: Still recovering from being sick last week. Just really really tired all.the.time!

Highlight: Going to the Biltmore with my two babies - the one I married and the one growing inside me:) The last time we were there, I had just found out we were yet again not pregnant, and cried part of the trip up there. Its amazing what God can do in such a short period of time!

Lowlight: I am still very frustrated with not working out consistently - ugh! I did three work outs, and I am AMAZED how much muscle tone I have lost. Sad days!

Fun Fact: Heading back home for the night tonight for a friend's wedding. My family hasn't seen me since early September... a LOT has changed on the belly front since then!:)


  1. You look fantastic! I can't believe you're already 24 weeks. I'm addicted to honeycrisp apples right now too, perfect time of year for them :)

  2. You look awesome! I luuurve that little belly and I can't believe you chose that name. Not only because I love it b/c that *very* name crossed my mind this week. Have never thought of it before...funny how life works!
