24 Weeks

Week: 24
Size: Grapefruit
Baby’s job this week:  He is weighing in at 1 1/2 lbs and close to 9 inches!  We have reached the all important viability week too!  His skin is more opaque and pink.  He now has eyebrows and eyelashes and hair on top of his head!
Symptoms:  Swollen hands and feet.  Occasional leg cramps
Sleep:  {No change here} Not bad but not as good as it was.  Some nights I wake up and can’t go back to sleep for 2-3 hours.
Maternity Clothes:  Dresses!  I love them!
Food Cravings:  Root beer Floats and jalapeno poppers!
Food aversions:  Nothing to report
What I miss: Wine and Dewey’s Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Movement:  All over the place!  I can now feel his kicks above my belly button which is new and exciting!  This little man is very active and sends me a powerful kick or two when I’m in meetings at work!  Sometimes they even make me jump! 🙂
Gender: Boy!
Favorite moment of the week:  We celebrated Ryan’s grandmothers 85th birthday!  She is a very special lady… she had 5 kids in 6 years.  She loves to tell that little fact just about every time I see her.  It was great to celebrate and honor such a wonderful person! 
What I’m looking forward to: First shower is in less than 2 weeks!
Favorite Ryan quote:  The other day I texted Ryan to ask what he wanted to accomplish at the house after work and is there anything he would like for me to do.  His response:  “Just grow my boy big and strong.  You’re doing plenty with just that.”  He’s such a sweet man.

Have a great week!

  1. funny – i’ve been onto floats this week too… but mine have been maple ice cream with coke zero. don’t knock it til you tried it 😉 there Must be vital minerals or something that we’re getting from them – haha.

    • I’m not knocking anything… Maple Ice cream and coke sounds amazing! I love anything salty right now, so either a salty carmel or a butter pecan are my favs for the rootbeer floats!
