24weeks

Sunday, January 11, 2009


Viability! We've reached the point of viability! With modern medical technology, Baby Bless would have a chance to survive if it were born now! Which I'm sure is due in part to the fact he now weighs around 1.2 lbs, and measures about 8.4 inches from crown to rump, but of course this does vary.
Fun times, the center of his bones are beginning to harden! Additionally, he can occupy himself by making a fist, and may already have a preference for his right or left hand {both grandpa's are lefties!}.

Supposedly Baby Bless sleeps and wakes in a more regular pattern now, and I am to notice that he is particularly active when you are resting. Which actually, yes, does seem to be true. Speaking of which . . . Tony felt his kick for the first time Thursday night and we could actually see my stomach move today!
As for my changes . . . I'm finally wearing a bra that fits again! Since my sports bras were getting too tight for comfort and my regular bras with these breastess' were not a pretty sight, I broke down and got 2 new ones. And it's bliss. Kind of funny though, I bought them at the aerie Christmas sale and was asked what size I was looking for, I just told the girl I had no freaking clue! Lol.
The sleeplessness continues, there should be no doubt that there is sleepiness and fatigue, just no sleep. I'm finally reaching my breaking point with clothes, I'm down to 2 pairs of jeans and 1 1/2 pairs of work pants. They're all a gamble though on whether or not they'll fit from day to day.
I'm pretty sure Tony has his mind made up regarding Baby Bless' name, yet he insists that he is keeping an open mind lol.
I visited with two girl friends yesterday and apparently one thought it would be sweet to tell me that I don't even look pregnant, just that I look to have a tire around my waist.
Recap:
Baby bless is 8.4 inches and 1.2 lbs
He may be deciding on righty/lefty as we speak
Tony got to feel baby bless kick for the first time!
I'm wearing bras that fit!
My closet is full of clothes that are no longer an option.
Tony's probably made up his mind on our baby's name.
I have more in common with Firestone than maternity clothes apparently.

Yay for the baby bless update - you look great!

You look adorable. And nothing like a Firestone tire. That crazy.

The sleeping is the worst part. My dr gave me something to help the last 4 weeks. So I could get some sleep before he got here. It was wonderful. I hope it gets better for ya.

Katie said...

Look at you! Your pics are too cute!

You're all, like, modelesque and stuff! I see your line, and I love it. You don't look like you have a tire around your waist; that wasn't a very nice comment. So cool that Tony felt him, and you saw him. It's weird, isn't it?

Bluebird said...

Loved all the pictures this time around! You look so cute in that white/navy combo! Do you find yourself dressing in more blues/greens and less pinks since you are expecting a boy? Just wondering. My friends say it's just a mental thing when you are pregnant. You just end up doing it even though you aren't doing it on purpose.

Love the updates! Keep them coming!
