Pregnancy Diary-24 Weeks

Hi Folks

I’m a little late with my update this week, I’ve had a busy couple of days but didn’t want to completely miss a post as I’m looking forward to looking back on this little diary as this is definitely my final pregnancy & even though it’s my fourth I have never kept any sort of record before.

How Far Along Am I ?

I am now just over 24 weeks, I have 16 weeks left if all goes according to plan, it’s seems like an age away but I know how fast time flies.

My Baby’s  Development

My baby is now around 30cm long, his little lungs are fully developed, he is also starting lay down fat on his little frame.


He is still very active but I’m starting to notice a pattern of when he’s awake & when he goes to sleep, he also seems to prefer one side of my tummy to the other.

How Am I Sleeping?

Not great is the answer this week, I have had some very odd & not very nice dreams which have left me a little restless, I’ve been taking the opportunity & having an afternoon nap when Daisy does. I’ve also been waking with a really aching back.

How’s My Health?

The good news this week is that after taking to my diabetic nurse & adjusting the way I take my morning insulin I’ve only had one hypo, the bad news is that there is very little change to my blood sugar levels & I’m still feeling wiped out in the mornings. I have an appointment this week to discuss it all so hopefully they can suggest something that will help.

Weight Gain

Once again I’ve forgotten to weigh, I like to do it first thing in the morning but that’s the busiest time for me so I keep forgetting, must try harder !


I’m still craving Ham sandwiches & crisps & I have to eat them in a certain way, I really am an oddiosity !

How’s My Mood ?

I’m feeling lots better mentally which is a relief, I’m trying to focus on positives & what I can do rather than what I can’t.

Other Bits & Bobs

We were considering not getting a double pushchair but we have had a really good think about it & we are going to invest in one, I have my eye on one on so we will be ordering that next weekend.

Looking Forward To

Ordering a double pushchair, not bought anything new for ages.

Lots more ham sandwiches.

I thought I would leave you with a little bump shot, I post these each week on Instagram, feel free to follow me over there I’m @FairlyDaisy, happy to follow you back.

I will be back next week with another update, please feel free to leave a comment or any questions you might have, I always reply.
