24 weeks :)

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 24 weeks 2 days

Size of the Baby? an ear of corn/an eggplant

Maternity Clothes? yes

Gender? pink

Movement? every time i after i eat she has a little fiesta in my belly. i can still feel her MUCH better if im laying down, I dont fell her standing up that much. she's still the most active at night!

Sleep? woof. about the same. i got a Snoogle pillow and it's great but a little too bulky for me to get used to sleeping with it all night. I toss and turn too much during the night to maneuver around it. but i love it for lounging!

Cravings? ice cream. still southern food: biscuits and gravy, mac n cheese, green beans, mashed potatoes, etc.

Symptoms? this has been the week of the backache. last saturday it was hurting so much i was about to cry at dinner, so we stopped on the way home and got a heating pad from walgreens. sweet relief!! but it's only temporary. going to the chiropractor tomorrow and very excited about it!

What I miss? Nothing

Milestones? no biggies

Weight Gain? holding steady at 10 lbs

What I’m nervous about? her teenage years

What I’m excited about? how quickly time is going by now days! seems like just the other day i was saying HALFWAY THERE .. and that was a month ago!! wohoo! we are so ready to meet our little girl!

Baby Center Update for Week 24: Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.
