How far along: 24w1d

Total weight gain: 15 pounds

Size and growth of the baby: just over 1 lb. and almost 12 in. long [similar to an ear of corn]
From my weekly email:  Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. [S]he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but the body is filling out proportionally and will soon start to plump up. The brain is also growing quickly now, and taste buds are continuing to develop. The lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once [s]he hits the outside world. The baby's skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Sex: still not leaning one way or another

Maternity clothes: most of the time

Sleep: good

Best moment(s) of the week: seeing Adam's face after feeling the baby kick for the first time!  

Movement: Yep...Adam felt it for the first time on Monday! :)

Food cravings/aversions: anything's been a HOT week!

Morning sickness: no

Symptoms: didn't feel well this week...Adam thinks maybe I just overdid it at the lakehouse last weekend.  Lots of back pain when I breathe, cramping, & overall fatigue.

Belly button in or out: in

What I miss: heartburn...that's much better than the acid I have now

What I'm looking forward to: fixing up the lakehouse before our little pumpkin arrives!


  1. Take it easy lady! :) Glad Adam has felt the babe, so cool!

  2. Yay, the baby kicked for Adam!!
