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.]

And clothed.
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?:
Stretch marks?:
None, thankfully.
Maternity clothes?:
Pants yes. Only 1 pair of pre-pregnancy jeans still fit.
Daylight Savings Time, 'nuff said.
Food cravings?: Nothing really.
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.

Leah, your shirt and sweater are so adorable! I haven't commented in forever (!), but I always read your posts. So excited for you and Tony to have another little one! Your blueberries and strawberries idea was so cute and creative. :) Have a wonderful week! <3

Cute bump! It is crazy how time is flying! I just did my glucose test and it wasn't bad at all. I was expecting worse... glad it wasn't.

Can't wait to see how your sewing project turns out! :)

You.are.making.a.quilt?? Who are you and what have you done with my friend Leah?? :)

Ashlet said...

Time is going SOOOOO fast. I cannot even believe it!

Meredith said...

A quilt?! Awesome! Is it navy blue? ;)

Also, I have the same ON shirt in red, but I never wear it because I always feel like it's a maternity shirt...I think it looks much better as one!

Sarah said...

You have to be one of the cutest dressed people I know!!! You look great!

I can't believe how fast time is going - one of my best friends is pregnant as well and won't find out the gender until next month which seems years away, but I'm sure it will be here before we know it!

Unknown said...

Yay for viability! And you look great as always. I don't think your belly is much bigger than the first time around. And I really don't think stretch marks will be making an appearance this time around either :)

AJ said...

You're so adorable with that little baby belly. What is this quilt you speak of?

Tavia said...

Looking very cute, mama!

Julia Goolia said...

Megan said...

Ummmm, you forgot to mention 24 wks = viability! Hooray!!! :)

You are gorgeous as always, my friend!

Sky said...

You are adorable and give me a twinge of babyitis.

How in the world do you find such cute things at ON? I rarely shop there, but stopped in before my trip because you have so many cute things from there and turned up empty handed. Its like I need a personal shopper or something.
