Daily Diary: The 24 Week Pregnant Belly Shot (Yes, I Went There)

Technically, today I start my 25th week. But honestly, I’m so confused about the whole thing. According to What to Expect, I’m 25 weeks pregnant. BUT if you look at exact days – I’m really 24 weeks, 1 day pregnant. So, what is the right way to say this? Am I 24 weeks? Or 25 weeks?

I get that I’m IN my 25th week – but it’s not completed yet????

Anyway – I digress before I even begin. Here’s my first belly shot. Naturally, I’m in my PJs with no makeup on because… I lay in bed all day. There’s really no point in getting made up. I was on my way to the bathroom and Bill snapped this shot of me while standing. 🙂 Figured we needed a few of these milestones to look back on.

To date, I’ve gained 14 pounds. But I am sure I will hit the 45 mark because I got there with both Natalie and Liam. I can’t help it. I don’t move ALL day. No energy exerted means I have trouble keeping the weight off. Oh… and then there’s all that bacon.

Had a pretty important doctor’s appointment yesterday. Waiting on some test results today. VERY VERY nervous. I’m hoping for some good news. One day at a time. That’s all I keep saying.

I started seriously stocking up on baby gear. Going to start writing about all my finds over the next few weeks. Get ready! LOL

Tomorrow is my 11 year anniversary. I just can’t believe it. Hopefully, we’ll rent a really scary movie and order in Colombian Food. 🙂 Mmmmmnnnn
