I can't believe we finally made it to 24 weeks. That's 6 months pregnant. That also means that there are only 14 weeks left! The babies officially have a fighting chance if God forbid they are born early. I'd post a pic, but my officialy belly photographer is out of the country: (
The belly is looking large....and stretched out. I figured I'd get a few stretch marks during this process, but I never expected to get so many or get them so soon. Some of them flat out hurt. I can literally feel the skin tearing. It feels an awful lot like a deep burn.
Now for the 24 week survey:
How far along: 24 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 23.5 lbs
Symptoms: Still really tired, emotional, and a really sore back
Stretch Marks: Yes-deep and painful
Sleep: I could always use more. Bathroom breaks have increased to 3-4 times a night.
Best Moment Last Week: Feeling really strong big kicks and watching my belly move. Also getting the second crib in the nursery.
Movement: Yes...and I love it!
Food Cravings: Watermelon.
What I Miss: Being able to breathe and do normal activities without getting winded.
What am I looking forward to: Our next u/s in one week.
How is Daddy? Wonderful. He's been rubbing my belly a lot and enjoying the kicks and movements as much as I am.
