24 weeks!

Not a very eventful week… I have a dr appointment on Thursday im excited about that! Im still eating all the ice I can get my hands on! Sometimes two 44oz gas station cups a day! I literally feel like I need it ALL the time and get sad when it looks like my cup is getting low because I will have to go back to the gas station for the GOOD ice or suffer with the kind from my fridge. (Call me crazy its NOT the same) I’ve been SUPER hormonal this week just very angry about everything! I have a short fuse lol. I had a few nights that I slept very good so that was nice! I still pee all night long. Ellie loves to kick around I can now feel her in my ribs and kicking my bladder!  Shes sooo fun already lol. Im excited Jon and Molly will be back soon for another ultrasound!  I know Ellie is excited too! So this is what shes been up to this week! Your baby weighs more than a pound and a half right now and sports a crown-to-rump length of about eight and a half inches (standard letter size!).

Wondering what (and who) your baby will look like? If you had a baby camera, you’d almost be able to tell by now. That beautiful face (though still tiny) is almost fully formed. What’s still missing from the picture is the fat that will be piled on under baby’s skin. Until those fat deposits are made, that very tender skin is still very transparent, which means a close look would let you see clear through to all the organs, bones, and blood vessels. Fortunately, that see-through look won’t last much longer. Babies at this stage of fetal development are gaining about six ounces each week — with much of that gain coming from fat, in addition to growing organs, bones, and muscle.

What’s been playing on your little rocker’s stereo system these days? All kinds of sounds can be heard by your baby in your womb: from air exhaling from your lungs (deep breath now), those gastric gurgles produced by your stomach and intestines, your voice and your partner’s (which your baby will be able to recognize at birth), and even very loud sounds such as honking horns, barking dogs, or a wailing fire truck.

  1. You have a gorgeous little surro bump! I had a giggle about your ice cravings. Its so funny what pregnancy does to us. I wonder if my pregnancy will result in different cravings to what I had with my own biological children…
