Pregnancy Survey- 24 Weeks

How Far Along: Here we are, another Thursday has come upon us. We are now 24 weeks pregnant! Time is flying.

Size of baby: 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.
Total Weight Gain: I'm going to go with 9 (it fluctuates a lot during the day)

What I miss: Nada
Sleep: I have a pillow pile going in that bed that Molly loves. She finds pillow lumps all throughout the bed and just curls right on up. I am still loving my bed duvet, by the way. So pretty.

Symptoms: Feeling completely normal minus the growing belly that some days seems like its growing a lot and some days I feel like I am not getting big at all.

Cravings: Man, did I have some Moes yesterday. I decided to stop in after work because I was craving a taco, but I really did also want a salad. I made up my mind that I was going to get both and look like a big pig so I ordered my salad and then my taco and the guy making them said, why don't I Just give you the kid taco and since it's kids eat free night you can get a free cookie and drink. Ummmm heck yea I'll take that. So for $7 I got a close talker salad in the shell loaded with the most awesome vinaigrette dressing, a taco, chocolate chip cookie, lemonade and chips and salsa. And I ate just about everything (minus the chips) with no problem! That made my day, I really don't think he could tell I was pregnant, but I'll pretend to have kids any day for that deal (I have one in my belly so I think that should def. count).

Aversions: Nothing.

Gender- BABY BOY!

Movement: He is moving around a good bit. I like feel his weirdest whole body type movements in bed at night while I just am sitting there. It's more than just a poke, it's like a body roll. I had to move my hand once because I wasn't expecting to feel something for that long of a time, very cool though.

Maternity Clothes: Just sporting my 2 maternity jeans a lot. All my tops are still fitting just fine.
Fabric on left is the crib bumper and curtains. Fabric on right is the striped crib skirt.
Best Moments this week: Getting our crib and I ordered fabric so I could see what the bedding will look like. 2 out of 3 has come in and I love them! I think we're going to make curtains out of the paisley design when Mom and family come for Christmas.

What I'm looking forward to: This weekend is David's exam so we are heading down to Macon for the weekend so he can take the test all day saturday (think good thoughts!) I am looking forward to reading and watching the Georgia Southern Football game. The hotel also has an indoor pool! I am really just looking forward to having my David back for the weekends. We have a lot of lost time to make up for (wait until you see what I have planned for next weekend lol).

Milestones: The crib is in our house and we will be ordering the dresser Sunday. We are in discussions for the NY Thanksgiving shower and we'll be registering next weekend! Lots of fun stuff coming up. Unfortunately we're boycotting Halloween this year (we have no decorations up... I know) since we have had no time to get ready for it, no big Halloween party like last year, but that's ok.
24 weeks! Yep, totally have a night light, don't judge.
