24 Weeks

How Far Along: 24 Weeks...6 months!!!!

Size of Baby: Baby #3 is about the size of a ear of corn...gaining about 4 ounces in the last week. Its body is filling out proportionately and going to be plumping up soon! Its lungs continue to grow and its skin will soon not be translucent!

Total Weight Gain: +12 lbs...I got the 2 I lost last week back...they missed me.

Maternity Clothes: I got a great dress for Easter that I will be able to wear once Baby #3 arrives. NY&Company had some great dresses too! I think dresses will be my paycheck...yay! And I am starting to look for a maternity bathing suit top. I have bottoms but want a new top...the weather is getting warm and the pool is calling me and Zoe's names!

Gender: August 14th is coming quickly...we are already 6 months along. I can't believe it! We can't wait to meet this little one and see who the newest member of our family is! Names are the same...the week!

Movement: This kid moves ALL.THE.TIME! Much more intense jabs and kicks, still some waves across my tummy. I even saw my stomach move with kicks this week. Very cool! The movements are almost predictable...once it gets know you have about 5-6 more kicks to follow. Zach is loving this! He feels the Baby all the time now!

Sleep: Still surrounded by pillows. I have been sleeping more upright this week. I can't sleep on my left side because it is not comfy at all and my hip hurts some if I always sleep on my right. So upright it is!

Symptoms: I am still having the burning sensation in my skin. It is now right around my panty line and only half of my body....only the left side. Still so weird! I feel like my tummy really popped this week!

Best Moment of the Week: Watching my stomach move was pretty cool! But Saturday took over the whole week of bests. Watching so many get baptized makes me so excited for this little one's Baptism..and all the other beautiful Sacraments that will be taking place in our children's lives. So much to look forward to!

And I got to meet Ms. Brooke!

I have my check up on Tuesday!
