Bumpdate {24 weeks}

Well we made it six months in the beautifully blessed pregnancy!

As each week passes I am getting more and more excited.
I am trying my best to prepare our home and my heart for baby v and all that is about to change.

My desire is that Seth will experience The Lord by simply being our son. (:

So here is this weeks bumpdate!

How Far along: 24 weeks (and 3 days in the pic)

Size Of Baby: baby v is the size of an eggplant (9 inches and 1.7 pounds!)

Maternity Clothes: oh yes! I tried to wear my jeans again but it's not happening.

Stretch Marks: mmmhmmm! I am now using some stretch mark cream to help.

Weight Gain: right around 17 pounds. Eeek!

Sleep: it's hard to get comfortable and baby v still likes to kick a lot while I am resting. But I guess I need to get used to it.

Best Moment of the Week: Yesterday was just a really fun day with husby and I. He had to work six days last week so yesterday was his only day off and we just hung out. We laughed a lot and talked about baby v. I know it's not directly about Seth, but we are a family and it was a great day!

Movement: lots and lots, but once Martin tries to feel him he gets shy and stops hehe.

Cravings: ice cream! Maybe I need more dairy and sugar. Hehe but I always want ice cream after every meal.

Gender: all baby boy!

Belly Button In or Out: in... But looking like in the next few weeks it will be out.

Wedding Ring on or Off: off and on. some days I am more swollen then others .... So when I am home I have it off ... But when I go out I put it on.

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: not a thing!

What I Miss: sleeping all night. Last night was tough. I had restless leg syndrome, then my hip would hurt, then I would get hot, then cold. Bleh. Lol.

What I am Looking Forward to: next week I have my glucose test and another ultrasound! Not excited about the test but excited for the ultrasound!

Nursery: my mother in law just bought our crib and it should be here next week so we can start to decorate!

Emotions: excited!!! I have just been really excited all week! I can't believe that in a few months I will have a beautiful baby boy in my arms (:

What baby is up to: sections of his lungs are expanding and is producing surfactant so that his lungs won't collapse when he is born. Capillaries are forming and filling with blood too! Baby V has just a little but of hair on his head! He is growing perfectly and being blessed by The Lord. (:

Baby bumps and love - Monica

Yay for Baby! I love the outfit! It's my kind of style :) I'm glad you were able to spend time with your husband. It's so cool to that you are not experiencing nausea!
