Well, here we are at 6 pregnancy months pregnant [weeks/4=10 total months of pregnancy, instead of the calendar 9]. I swear last week was one of the longest weeks of this pregnancy, it just felt like I'd never move past 23w.
24w1d with Baby Love vs 24w with Isaac.
[Yay for developing back fat.]
ON cardi and shirt [both non-mat from last year] and H&M skinny jeans.
From my weekly email: 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.
How far along?: 24w1d
How big is baby?: The size of an ear of corn, 12 inches.
Weight gain/loss?: 14lbs.
Stretch marks?: None, thankfully.
Maternity clothes?: Pants yes. Only 1 pair of pre-pregnancy jeans still fit.
Sleep?: Daylight Savings Time, 'nuff said.
Food cravings?: Nothing really.
Gender?: We're having another son!
Movement?: A little stronger every day.
Belly button?: Aside from the damage inflicted by Isaac, unchanged.
What are you looking forward to this week?: MW appointment on Friday.
Notables: Not much going on here this week. The most baby related news I have is that my fabric came in for a few projects that I'll be embarking on . . . like a quilt.
Before you give me too much credit, the last time I used a sewing machine I put the needle through my Mom's thumb. I hope that we avoid a repeat.
I can't believe that I'll be doing my glucose test soon. It seems like in a blink of an eye I'll be rounding 30 weeks.
