Bump Update(baby #2): 24 weeks



tuesday-4 miles +sculpted arm workout

I’m finally not too sore after the below workout, so now I need to find a new one. I like changing it up so my body doesn’t get used to the same workouts over and over.

Monday I had my 24 week check up then the rest of the day was spent cleaning the house and doing laundry. By the end of the day I was spent so sorry for no post yesterday. We were out on our deck last night and J said, “I just need to relax” haha. Me too J, me  too.

24 week bump update

Maternity Clothes

Yes, still rockin my maternity pants from my sister and pretty much the same 3 shirts that are super comfy. Ahem, this grey shirt is worn like every other day.

I’m still sleeping great. I occasionally have to change sleeping positions to get comfy, but it’s not bad.

Best moment this week

I got to hear her heart beat at my check up. It was a short visit, but her heart beat was strong, and everything is looking great. Also, Josh felt her kick for the first time this week. He seen her kick a handful of times, but he finally felt her. Oh, and Josh’s family was over Sunday night and they all saw her moving. I LOVE seeing and feeling her all the time.


She moves a lot, but she definitely has a schedule. She doesn’t start moving around till about 10 am, but then she moves quite a bit throughout the rest of the day. I also have a lot of Braxton Hick contractions throughout the day. My OB says that’s pretty normal(I had them with J too) but they can be uncomfortable.

Food Aversions

Not really. I pretty much want all the food all of the time still ha. I get full pretty quick, so I feel best if I eat small meals every 2 hours.

Food Cravings

Nothing specific this week. Still loving all the light foods that don’t make me feel extra heavy; salads, fruit, yogurt, and smoothies.


I can’t believe I’m still able to run comfortably. I stopped running at 20 weeks with J and just walked and did weights. I recovered fast with J, so no complaints but running just feels so much better to me than walking. At 23 weeks with baby girl, I ran 6 miles and now at 24 I’m comfortably running 4 miles. I love just running and feeling energized so I hope I can continue.

J joined me and did his own workouts and “concentrations”(meditation) =) PS I don’t meditate so I have no idea where he got that from.

**We still haven’t agreed on a name and I haven’t started the nursery. I’m hoping to start on the nursery soon, but I’m not in any rush.

any name suggestions?

what songs are you running to?

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
