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. (:
