24 Weeks Pregnant Update {Baby #6}

Hey Guys!

I just went to my 24 week doctor appointment yesterday, so i thought now would be a good time to give a little update on how this pregnancy is going.

Today i am 24 weeks & 2 days pregnant with baby #6. If you missed my gender reveal announcement, this baby is a boy. Which will make 5 boys & 1 girl for us.

I know a lot of people do weekly updates, but i just thought that would be kind of annoying, and honestly not much changes from week to week so there wouldn’t be much to update. Instead i plan on giving these updates once a month, maybe i’ll do weekly as my due date gets closer, i’m not sure yet. We will see how it goes.

Back to the update, my measurements are right on track and baby’s heartbeat is perfect. I go back for another checkup in 3 weeks and we will be doing the glucose testing then.

Heartburn, leg cramps, and insomnia are just a few of my current symptoms. Each of those symptoms are pretty common for me when i’m pregnant, so i’m kinda used to them. Not that they aren’t totally annoying. But once baby is born, they do go away.

I’m not really craving anything right now. For the first few months of my pregnancy all i wanted was spicy foods, and then i started craving cinnamon rolls.

During my first trimester, i only gained 2 pounds. Since then i’ve gained 5 pounds, for a total weight gain so far of 7 pounds.

That’s all i can think of to update at the moment.

Homeschool First Quarter Update

Hey Guys!

We’ve completed our first quarter of homeschool for the 2020-2021 school year, so today i thought i would give an update on how our first quarter went.

We’ve finished 2 books in literature, so far. We are doing The Waldock Way’s – Passport To Adventures, which has us reading The Magic Treehouse Series. I’m not a huge fan of this “curriculum”, i feel like for $40 you don’t get much. You get lists of extra things you should/could buy for each book (toys for sensory bins, games, puzzles, etc.), but i feel like that is something you could just come up with on your own without spending the money on it.

Spanish is going remarkably well. The kids are retaining all the new words they are learning really well. I highly recommend Flip Flop Spanish!! Even my 4 year old is speaking Spanish.

We have finished up our first unit in History, which was all about Ancient Greece & Ancient Asia. My 7th grader enjoyed learning about the caste system and my 4th grader enjoyed learning about what life was like for children in Ancient Greece.

In Science we have finished our first unit study, which was on Arthropods. The kids all loved the different experiments we did, like using our sense of smell to find our “hive” (cotton balls with essential oils on them).

Everything has been going really well. We’ve been liking our schedule and having Monday’s off has been great.
