24 weeks (Baby FOUR)

Sorry there is no picture this week. Maybe I’ll get one this weekend. Doubtful, but maybe.

You can also check out the similarities/differences from 24 weeks with Baby #1.

How far along? 24 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: At my last check up (2 weeks ago) I was + .5 lb.

Maternity clothes? Nope. Just my favorite maternity yoga pants that I wear even when I’m not pregnant.

Stretch marks? no new ones

Sleep: Decent, though not enough. I’ve been getting up with Steven every morning around 4:30.

Best moment this week: Taking the kiddos to the Christmas parade. They all loved it this year!

Movement: yep

Food cravings: I’m doing good to have an appetite at all most days.

Gender: unkown

Labor Signs: nope

Belly Button in or out? still in

What I miss: my husband

What I am looking forward to: Steven coming home on Saturday night

Weekly Wisdom: If you couldn’t eat cereal in the morning yesterday, or the day before, or last week, or the week before, there’s a pretty good chance it’s not going to end well to try to eat it the next morning.

Baby’s Development:

“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.” -babycenter.com
