24 Weeks

Monday, October 1, 2012

My baby bump at 24 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: I gained about 1.5 lbs this past week.  That means I'm only 2.5 lbs less than pre-pregnancy.

Movement:  Cullen moves all the time...especially when I'm trying to rest.  His kicks are getting stronger every day, too!

Boy or Girl? Boy!!!

Food Cravings: Nothing this week.

How I'm Feeling: Still pretty good.  Just the same ol' hip and and back pain.  Nothing I can't handle.  I think the nesting bug has hit as well.  We have gotten so much done at our house in the past week, and I haven't dreaded it.

Size of Baby: Ear of Corn (8.5 in, 1.5 lbs)  

Baby's Development:  Baby's face (though still tiny) is almost fully formed.  What's still missing is the fat that will be piled under baby's skin.  That very tender skin is still very transparent until those fat deposits are made.  But that won't last much longer.  At this stage, baby is gaining about 6 ounces each week.

Best Part of this Week: Corey and I had a fun mall date this week.  We did some shopping for ourselves and picked out Cullen's going home outfit.

What I'm Looking Forward To: My 24 week appointment this next week.  I always love hearing our little one's heartbeat!
