Anywho- I feel like I'm repeating myself a lot in these posts so I'll keep it short this time. Everything is still going great. Let's see...gaining weight, check. I went to the chiropractor today and I had gained 5 pounds since my first appointment there a month ago! Eek. So apparently I'm still on the pound/week plan. The chiropractor is seriously awesome, though. Best decision ever.
As far as the baby goes...I can't believe how strong and how much this little guy/girl moves! I rarely go more than 15 minutes without feeling kicks and rolls. It's what I wake up to every morning, not complaining at all! Baby really goes crazy after I eat and when there are loud noises. I'm only 24 weeks and if the kicks are this hard now, I can't imagine what they will be like at the end. I think my uterus is supposed to be the size of a soccer ball at the end of this week (AHHH!!). That in itself is crazy to me...how does a soccer ball fit in there? I suppose it does. The baby is about 1.4 pounds and almost 12 inches long (a whole FOOT!).
This past Saturday I meet with a doula and we chatted a while about birth and other pregnancy stuff...Frank is probably really glad he wasn't here for that, ha! I am still not 100% sure I want a doula, but she was very nice/knowledgeable and I think she would be awesome if we decide to do that. I'm going to think about it a little bit before I make any decisions, I still have plenty of time.
Well, this turned out a little long anyway. So here's the belly pic at 24 weeks...
|3 months. I laugh at this photo now because I seriously don't think I looked pregnant at all, but at the time I thought I did.|
