24 weeks

Friends! I’m now 24 weeks pregnant. Or 6 months, if you are counting literally. This will also be the last month of my second trimester.

I have been so lucky over these last 4 weeks. I have had next to no symptoms, aside from daily heartburn, the nightly swelling of my legs and feet, and periodic Braxton Hicks contractions. Looking back at this time with Remy, I see that I was also feeling great and established a really productive routine during the day. This must be the magical time of pregnancy for me, at least. I cannot say the same for all mamas with great certainty. If only all pregnancies were this easy. ;-)))

Here are a few more facts about growing babe:

– he/she weighs about 1.3 lbs
– now measure him/her head to toe
– his/her skin has a pinky hue
– he/she can taste what I eat

So far, I’ve gained around 18 lbs. It’s more than I would have hoped for, but as long as we get a healthy little one, it is worth it!

24 weeks

24WeeksPregnantYippeeee!! I’m now 24 weeks pregnant! Every time that I see or tell someone that I know or are meeting for the first time that I’m expecting, their first reaction is to look at my stomach. Then they say, “you are?” I reply that I am and tell them how far along the baby is. They never believe me. While I do feel huge, I kind of wish that I had a bigger stomach at five and a half months just so that I would have to stop trying to convince people. Oh well. As long as the little one is healthy, I am happy.

By the time that I publish this, I’ll actually be 24 weeks and 5 days. That means I only have to wait two more weeks until I’m in my last trimester. Time, you are on my side. I love you for that.
