24 Weeks

24 weeks of pregnancy. You know what that equals? That basically equals six entire months pregnant! I know. I am just as amazed as you are. Now, lets see. The sweet baby is somewhere around a pound and a half these days and is all of a foot long. According to Amalah this means I should eat a foot long sub to celebrate. I will seriously consider it. I also learned that I will be feeling the baby have hiccups here soon. Plus it said that Nick (or I guess anybody if I let them get close enough) will be able to hear the babies heart beat if they put their ear to my stomach. That just seems like crazy talk. Nick and I did get to watch the baby kicking the other night. It was pretty amazing to actually SEE my stomach move around!

I guess the biggest news of the week in my head (okay, I might be a touch morbid about this one) is that this is the week when the baby has a good chance of living if it was born today. There is something comforting in knowing that from this point on my body is not the babies only chance of survival. Now, not to say I am nearly ready for this baby to be born, there is still a lot of growing to do, but still it's good to know!

As for me, do you all get tired of hearing that I am great? Hope not because I am still golden. I did manage to nearly kill myself by overeating pasta on lunch the other day. Oh man, it was bad. B.A.D. I made enough lunch for two days, then I decided I would just eat them both. Yeah. Terrible idea. Over the next four hours I was MISERABLE. The baby was also miserable and gave me several kicks in the gut to let me know that he/she was NOT OKAY with this level of discomfort. I guess it is good to know that there is a limit to the amount of food I should consume in one sitting...

UPDATE: Here are the belly pics! Better late than never, right??

Shirt down...

Shirt up!


  1. Oh my god, you made me laugh with the 2 meal thing. Ouch!

  2. Congrats. Go and eat a sub that sounds wonderful.

  3. Okay, it doesn't sound morbid! Yes, you reach viability!! That's so awesome!

    I feel ya about the eating too much. That's about the only time I feel miserable! And I don't want to eat anything else ALL DAY long! Crazy!

    Looking forward to seeing the next belly pic!

  4. Sorry about the brodband company!

    Enjoy your pregnancy, it goes by so fast. I will always miss that feeling of a baby kicking inside.

    Take care

  5. I think you are starting to touch the shelf. You are so cute. I was looking at my belly pics the other day with my little Alyce and telling her she was inside. It was way cute.
