i can NOT believe that i am already 6 months pregnant and i only have about 3.5 months to go! where has the time gone?!?!
baby is the size of an ear of corn
Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long, he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.
Here are this weeks stats:
How far along: 24 weeks
Total weight gain: 20 lbs. (don't judge me :) )
Maternity clothes: pants-yes, shirts-most are regular just a size bigger, dresses-maxi dresses are awesome when you're pregnant
Sleep: sleeping good so far...
Best moment this week: hearing the heartbeat at the doctor!
Food cravings: sweets
Labor signs: nope
Belly button: flat
Wedding rings: Still on
