24 weeks

Woo hoo this week seems to have been a life-time in coming around!!

The little one is extremely active and seems to be even more so when  I have sugary food etc =) So if sugar makes me hyper is most definitely is making it hyper as well lol

Whats happening to my baby this week?

What You’re Thinking:

“OK, seriously, where are my toes?”

Your Pregnancy: Week 24
At about this time the reality of having a baby is definitely setting in (maybe it’s the fact that you can’t see your toes). Be sure to talk about how you’re feeling with your significant other, girlfriends, siblings, parents, doctor, hairdresser, the person sitting next to you on the bus … whomever! It’s totally natural to be freaking out. Voicing your concerns about mommyhood will help you actually get used to the idea.

Your Baby
Your baby isn’t just sitting around (on your bladder) doing nothing, he’s working hard preparing for life outside the womb—perfecting his lungs and packing on the pounds. He’ll gain ½ pound this week alone. Other highlights this week:

Things are starting to get a little crowded inside the old womb as baby grows bigger and bigger. Your ribs are probably pining away for the good old days when they didn’t have a foot permanently lodged between them. Hate to break it to you, but it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Your baby’s ears are fully functional now. And since they are, you may notice that loud noises and sudden movements can startle the little bugger. He’s getting used to the everyday sounds inside the womb: the sound of your heart beating, your lungs inhaling and exhaling air, the growling of your stomach because your partner promised he’d be right back with that double cheeseburger and he’s taking forever! He’ll even be able to hear your voice when your partner finally arrives and you ask him where the bleep he’s been! So talk nice!

Baby’s got a fully developed inner ear now. This means his sense of balance is working and he can tell whether he’s hanging upside down or right side up. He can also feel you moving, so go ahead, pop in your favorite tunes and boogie.

Your little Wiener schnitzel is about the length of a foot-long Chicago hot dog and weighs about 1 1/3 pounds.

Wow I am definitely begining to lose sight of my toes that’s for sure =) I took a pic last week and they were just peeking out under my belly – dread to think what I can see this week. Will take a pic tomorrow and see….

BTW I’m putting bump pics up on flickr and picasa.

well im just home from work had a crap day so off to get some food and possible just go to bed and read.

  1. Hehe! I went to your flikr! You’re so cute pregnant! Can’t wait to hear what you’re having.

    Why did you have a crap day?

  2. Congrats on 24 weeks!!!! and also, thanks for stopping by my site of course I dont mind you commenting and coming by!

  3. Sugary food, huh? Angel, when he was in the womb was active at night, especially when I had spicy food. Now, at 6 years old, he LOVES salsa! lol!

    Yes, can kind of be daunting not being able to see your toes, but it will not be that way for a while, so hopefully you will not get upset about that. I did and that story is now a legend in our family, and probably the strangest memory from some gal who worked in the Rivercenter mall Starbucks in San Antonio, Texas…lol

  4. Congrats on the pregnancy! You’re over the half way hump so that’s good! Now it won’t be too long til you have the baby. I remember counting down and it feelin’ like it took forever, but now it doesn’t seem that way and my son is growing up way too fast. I saw my toes throughout my whole pregnancy though lol.
