24 Week Survey

How far along? 24 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: +3 again, 23 lbs. total. Once again, I do not see it except for in my bump!
How big is baby? Supposed to be a little over a pound and a foot long!
Maternity clothes? Yes and no. The cute shirt in my belly pic this week is from Target, I just got an XL. Same for the pink tank, it is from Old Navy...I just get bigger sizes. And it's cheaper.
Sleep: Good but I wake up often, thankfully I can fall right back asleep.
Best moment this week: Spending time with Chris!
Movement: yep... love the little man
Food cravings: Nothing in particular....but always thirsty!
Gender: Team Blue!
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? Innie still but getting more shallow.
Stretchmarks? Nothing noticeable yet. Thank goodness! I am using Organic Palmer's Cocoa Butter cream in the morning and this "Beautiful Belly Balm" at night that I got at our local health food store.
How are you feeling? For the most part I feel great. My back and hips hurt me and by the end of the day I'm tired, but I suppose that is normal!
What I am looking forward to: Our upstairs being finished so we can get up there, and start working on the nursery, which is our bedroom right now.
What I miss: Lately I miss running SO much!!
Weekly Wisdom: I got nada
Milestones: Viability, woot woot!

This is just an XL shirt from Target.


And a LG tank from Old Navy. P.S. they are cute and fit awesome...and they are only supposed to be $2 this Saturday.


And this picture is just for fun...my cousin Joanie and I at her open house this past Sunday. This shirt was also from Target and non-maternity, I think a LG. It is so flowly, I love it!


How your baby's growing:

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.

You look adorable!! Part of me thinks it would suck to be pregnant in the summer when it's hot and sticky (at least, in my neck of the woods it is), but then I think about how cute summer outfits are compared to winter ones. They're way cuter. Yay viabilty!!!!!
