Baby Update: 24 Weeks!


I sure wish time would slow down a little though ... I'm not ready to NOT be pregnant yet!  I waited WAY too long for this to have it be over so soon!!!
Though ... considering how HUGE I'm feeling suddenly these last couple of weeks ... I have a feeling my tune could be changing sooner than I think!

Here's the latest picture: (in case you missed it on Facebook earlier!:-)

All of those graphics kind of hide it, but WOWZERS.  Mr. Max has GROWN!
(Well, at least his mama has grown...)

Lil' Max is about a foot long and weighs over a pound now!  According to my "Sprout" iPhone app, he is now approximately the size of a half-gallon of milk!  His lungs are developing a lot these days, and he's also (supposedly) got some hair on his head now.  (Wonder if it will be curly like his big sis???)

It's no wonder I suddenly feel huge, 'cause GET THIS ... my uterus is now the size of a SOCCER BALL!!!
What the HECK!?!
It is now well above my belly button (by 2-3 inches).  My doctor told me my uterus has expanded (upward) at least three inches in the past month!
(That would explain the extreme "growing pains" I've been experiencing ...)
Unless I have completely forgotten, I never experienced growing and stretching like this with Lucy!  I think I was about the size I am now a few weeks before giving birth last time.
This scares me.
What will I look/feel like three months from now!?!
Oh well ... until the "miserable stage" (which I clearly never experienced the first time around, but have heard all about!), I plan to keep on enjoying every second! :-)

Lucy is more and more excited all the time for Max to make his appearance.  I couldn't count the amount of times in a day that she brings him up.  And she is now proudly (as opposed to regrettably) telling everyone she is having a BROTHER!
She is getting to be such an independent little thing!  She's all about dressing HERSELF and brushing her OWN teeth and washing her OWN hands, etc, etc.
Her latest obsession is her bounce house (courtesy of Aunt Stephie).  I need to get some photos posted of that soon!

Speaking of posting .... I know I'm still pathetic, BUT did you catch my non-baby-related post the other day!?!  The Cookies & Milk Bridal Shower???  It's a good one, too!  Be sure to go back and check it out if you missed it the first time! :-)

Thanks for stopping by and keeping tabs on us!  Feels so good to have your love and support! :-)

  3. SOOOOOO stinkin' cute Bec girl!! LOVE that little man already! SO understand the popping and getting huge the second time around. UGH! I remember feeling like I was 8 mo preggo already in the third month!! ha! So happy for ya!

  4. You look so cute. I can only imagine how excited Lucy is because my granddaughter is the same way about her 6 month old baby brother. She loves him so much and is great at entertaining him. I love to watch them together. He just smiles at her so big. You are in for so much fun!

  5. Yay! I miss your regular posts!! :) You look amazing!

  6. You look beautiful! And to me not big at all! That is so sweet that Lucy is excited for a baby brother. I think little girls are so helpful. She will probably be mommy's little helper. I can't wait to get where you are. Someday!


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
