Baby H2 {24 weeks}



How far along: 24 weeks

Net weight gain/loss: 14 pounds

Maternity clothes: All maternity!

Stretch marks: none. and I am going through the lotion like crazy! :-)

Belly button: innie

Sleep: Just hit and miss. Some nights I never wake up. Some nights I wonder if I ever really went to sleep!

Baby movement: He is quite the mover!

Gender: BOY!

Food cravings: Mexican, cereal, plain blueberry Eggo's, sandwiches, chocolate milk, tea and Coke icees.

Food aversions: anything that is not listed above! :)

What I miss: The days of not being incredibly tired!

Looking forward to: Christmas! I know that isn't really prego related, but I cannot wait to spend time with all of our families!

Best moment this week: I am off for two weeks with Hadlea home. I could definitely get used to being a stay at home mom! I am so enjoying having her all to myself.

Milestones per babycenter: 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.
