24 weeks!!

How far along? 24 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Little Abigail is still the length of a papaya. About 10.5-12.5 inches and over one WHOLE POUND!! :) She's rapidly gaining ounces each week now!

Weight Gain? Not sure again... though last Dr.'s appointment was 7 lbs.

Maternity clothes? A mixture

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? It really depends on where she is laying.

Sleep? Blah... don't feel like talking about the sleeping problem.

Foods I am loving? A variety of things.

Foods I am hating? Anything fast food or greasy.

Best moment this week? Seeing Abigail move and feeling her get stronger and stronger!

Movement? Yes.

Symptoms? Same as always


What I miss? Absolutely nothing!

What I'm looking forward to? Working on the nursery! I can't wait to get all her stuff!

Weekly Wisdom: Sleep whenever you can.

Milestone: Making it to 6 months!!

Emotions: Still up and down. But mostly good. It honestly depends on the situation.

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.
