24 weeks

How Far Along: 24 Weeks

Size of Baby: Just over a pound!! According to the Baby Center website he gained 4 ounces in the last week!!

24 Weeks: Baby Wolfe is growing steadily. He's almost a foot long, he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally, and he'll soon start to plump. 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 will start to change soon. (Information taken from Baby Center's website)

Belly Pic:

Sleep: Getting good sleep, besides the fact I get up every 2-3 hours to pee! Also, since I am terrified of sleeping on my back, my hips get sore which wakes me up. Position change helps this.

Best Moment of the Week: Looking at cribs online with Eli

Movement: LOTS of movement! I LOVE feeling him move, it never gets old. I am the only one who can feel him, can't feel him from the outside yet. I know this is due to my anterior placenta, but can't wait until Eli gets a chance to feel it too!

Symptoms: Round ligament pain!! Hurts pretty bad. It feels like a charlie horse that gets stuck and you can't stretch it free. I can't walk when it happens, but when it happens its only for a short time. Sitting and resting helps alleviate the pain. Heart burn!! It's immediate when I lay down at night. It comes on no matter what I have eaten that day. TUMS smoothies have been my friend lately and work well. My Doctor also suggested Zantac which I have yet to try.

Food Cravings: Yoplait Blueberry Yogurt Parfait with Granola and bananas!

Gender: Sweet baby boy

What I Miss: My regular clothes. I feel so limited to the same outfits since I am not buying a whole wardrobe of maternity clothes. I feel like I wear the same thing all the time!

What I am Looking Forward to: Registering! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will do this! However, I did go to Babies R' Us to look at cribs and felt VERY overwhelmed when I saw everything we need!!

Weekly Wisdom: Don't feel guilty if you have a little Diet Coke here and there ;-)

Milestone: 24 weeks, which is viability!

Love, Kristen
