Pregnancy Journal: Week 24

I can't believe how slow everything seems to be going this time! I think with the kids crazy busy baseball schedule time should fly but it seems to be doing the opposite. 

How Far Along -  
24 Weeks Pregnant (24 weeks 4 days) 

Due Date - 
September 8th, 2016 

Boy or Girl - 
Unknown - this is a surprise baby :-)

Baby Development - 
Baby is growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. WOOHOO! That puts baby at about 2 lbs. Since baby is almost a foot long, it cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but it's body is filling out proportionally and will soon start to plump up. Baby's brain is also growing quickly now, and the taste buds are continuing to develop. It's lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help baby's air sacs inflate once baby is outside of the womb. The skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Symptoms -  
I have been pretty tired and dealing with a lot of pain in my lower vaginal area. 

Current Cravings -  
Nothing out of the ordinary. 

Currently Avoiding - 
I only avoid stuff if the smell makes me feel sick (like pizza  with onions). 

Belly Button Status -  
It's just about out.

Movement -  
Baby is moving a lot now and is very active! 

Any Appointments? -  
No doctor appointments this week. But have my 3 hour glucose test next week on my birthday (not looking forward to it)  

~ If you are currently doing a pregnancy journal please leave a link to it below! I would love to read where others are in their pregnancy journeys...

  1. I love reading these journals! They make me remember all my pregger days. They are long gone, but the memories are forever etched.
