Today marks the 24th week of my pregnancy.
Time has flown by and it’s only going to go faster from here.
Baby Size: CLL is about 12″ long (give or take) and about 1.25 lbs! Fruit comparison this week is a cantaloupe.
Fun Facts: CLL’s lungs have started secreting surfactants, the substance that keeps the moist interior surface of the lung from sticking together and he or she has begun to practice breathing. CLL’s eyes are now watching for light and it’s ears are listening to my heart beat and my stomach growl.
How I’m Feeling: I’m feeling good-no real complaints other than the new feeling of having some minor heartburn, which may have something to do with the change in my prenatal vitamin. I have to ask my Dr. about it next week!
I’ve spent a good chunk of this past week up at the Cape, which was the best decision because of the heat in NYC this week. I’ve managed to stay comfortable even while being outside, while I hear warnings being advised to pregnant woman in New York to stay inside. It’s been nice to get away from the city and take a break. I’ve been able to do work from the Cape and even enjoy some quality time with the family. I have noticed myself checking out all the baby gear at the beach. I can’t believe next summer M and I will have an 8 month old in tow. So exciting!
