24 Weeks

Size of baby: Ear Of Corn ( 1.3 lbs and 12 inches)
Total Weight Gain: 12 lbs
Continuing symptoms: Braxton Hicks, round ligament pain, sore feet
New symptoms this week: Feet and ankles are swollen after long days on my feet.
Maternity Clothes: With this awesome weather I have been wearing my tank tops lots! Love them so much!
What I'm Eating: Normal diet. Lots of cheese
Cravings: Cheese, 

Movement: I am starting to feel the baby a lot more when I am standing now, not just sitting. I am also starting to feel the movement higher up this week, closer to my belly button. In fact, I saw the baby kicking on Friday night for the first time. I have seen it once or twice since then. So awesome, I am looking forward to more!

Special pregnancy moments: Seeing the baby move my belly was a great milestone. Also 24 weeks is viability, which means that if this baby happened to be born now, it would have and 85% chance of survival. I can't even fathom that. That some people have their baby at this point! That is just crazy. I have mentioned this fact to a few people are they ALL started off on me about how I shouldn't want my baby to be born now and it it much better for it to be born later on... well no kidding. Why in the world would I wish for my baby to be born prematurely? Obviously I would like to be pregnant for 40 weeks, give or take a few. I am simply marvelling at the fact that a baby born this early has a fighting chance. Like any mother, I want whats best for my baby. And whats best for this baby is to grow inside my belly until he or she is ready to come out. I don't wish baby to be born any sooner!

Another special moment this week was the baby shower for my friend. I am so very thankful to be sharing this stage of life with close friends. I feel so overwhelmed with blessings in the season of life!
