24 weeks!

Badda bing, Time for the weekly bump report!

Feeling more pregnant than ever these last 2 weeks, so I can only imagine what the rest of my pregnancy will feel like!

How far along: 24 weeks

Baby Size: Ear of Corn (wowzers)
Baby's progress: Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him/her at about 1 1/3 pounds. Since baby is almost a foot long, he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his/her body is filling out proportionally and baby will soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his/her taste buds are continuing to develop. Baby's lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his/her air sacs inflate once he/she hits the outside world. The baby's skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.
Weight gain: Won't know until my next appt. But, I have notice a recent increase in appetite. I have a feeling this babe is going to be big like it's Momma! 
Stretch Marks: Still none!

Sleep:Sleeping really great. Although, I think I may be sleeping on my back during the night.
Gender: No idea! :)
Movement: Yes, lots! Baby loves to hang out around my belly button area.
Best Moment this week:This week would have to be the movement. I just can't get over it no matter how many times I feel it!
Looking forward to: My sis-in-laws shower! Excited to spoil her and my little nephew.
Food Cravings: No cravings this week!
Symptoms: Like I said above, noticing myself really feeling pregnant. In a lot of various ways. My biggest growth was from 21ish weeks-24 weeks. 
Things that suck: Feeling pretty blessed this week.

Things that don't suck: Baby clothes. Just adorable.

Sadie lady wanted to say hey to the baby!
