Pregnancy Update: 24 Weeks!!!

I've reached the point of viability! Even though I know that IF I delivered early for some reason, my baby has a chance of survival... I still obviously don't want to have a baby 16 weeks early. Stay in there little sugar lump! Oh, and lets not even think about the fact that I have 16 weeks (potentially less!) before this baby makes his or her entrance.

I'm pretty certain baby has gone through a growth spurt in the last 48 hours. At a bridal shower yesterday, I was feeling uncomfortable in any position I found myself: sitting, standing, walking, etc. Then this morning, I am feeling noticeably bigger but no longer uncomfortable. You can compare this week to my 20 week pic, there's definitely a growing bump!

Total Weight Gain: Fourteen pounds. It's always painful to look at my numbers increase each week, but I'm trying not to stress too much anymore.

Fetal Size: about 1.3 pounds and as long as an ear of corn... or about the size of a foot long sub! Ha!

Movement: This baby is still all over the place. Movements are getting so strong these days that baby can kick objects off of my belly. I love these little bumps and wiggles!!!!

Symptoms: Aside from an uncomfortable day yesterday, nothing much is bothering me. Well, as long as I'm faithful to take my antacid, because if I forget even one day, I'll be breathing fire. 

Cravings: I've been eating a lot of apples, but I think that's only because it's the season for great apples. I could go for an apple fritter right about now...

Aversions: Still nothing.

Next Up: My one-hour glucose challenge test and a repeat ultrasound for cranial anatomy.
