Pregnancy Update: Week 24

7 Comments

2013-04-01 19.36.47Today I am 24 weeks.
Our wonderful son is getting close to a foot long and weighs a little
over a pound.  His brain continues to develop and his lungs
are beginning to grow the different “branches” that will allow him
to breathe when he is born in a few months.

He continues to move quite often, and I absolutely love it!
Some days he is extremely active, other days not as much.
I like to talk to him when he moves and tell him how much
I love him.  I’ve also started playing music more often, as
he can likely hear quite well inside the womb now.  I
get excited when he gets the chance to hear music about our God
and sermons on Sunday.

Now that my sweet husband is home (YAY!!!) we have about
four weeks to get busy working on the baby’s room.  We picked
up paint chips, I’ve been browsing Pinterest and Etsy, and we have
started pricing baby furniture/necessities.

Our base here is awesome!  Today I got a call that my baby bundle
was ready to be picked up.  Every new mom is given this bundle…
in it was a package of white onesies (hmm…a Pinterest project seems
to be coming to mind), hand warmers, bibs, sleepers, two receiving
blankets, burp cloths, two sets of crib sheets, and two
hooded towels.  SO blessed by this generous gift!!

I also made a couple purchases myself…..

Mommy’s Prince Charming

Awww!!!!!  🙂 🙂 🙂

Finished reading “The Thinking Woman’s Guide to
a Better Birth” by Henci Goer…still working through “Redeeming
Childbirth” by Angie  Tolpin as well as “Praying Through Your
Pregnancy” by Jennifer Polimino and Carolyn Warren.

Dear Son,
It is so exciting preparing for your arrival.

I can’t believe that we are more than halfway
to meeting you…only a few months!
You bring such a smile to our faces when you kick 
and move.  I can’t wait to see your precious face
and see if you have your Daddy’s eyes or your Mommy’s
hair.  You are such a perfect, precious gift.  We love you!
-Mommy

  1. Sweet Bonnie!
    I can’t help myself but smile reading your post – it is so joyfull. Your little boy was already blessed with wonderfull loving parents. Take care for you. I am praying 🙂

  2. Wow, that’s cool that the base gives you a gift like that! Have fun decorating the baby room. We’ve always rented and had small spaces, so no nurseries yet. We had to rearrange our room with this baby to fit her crib into the corner. 🙂

  3. I’m going to agree with Dusty here – I kept reading about how big your baby is, compared to fruit, but I never thought to go get the fruit and take a picture. Cute idea! Congrats! I’m having a boy in less than 2 months. 🙂

  4. You look so lovely!

    I just love feeling the baby move; it’s one of the best parts of pregnancy!

    Getting the nursery ready sounds exciting and what a blessing that the base gave you such a nice bundle of baby stuff.

    Thanks for sharing and linking up with My Pregnancy Journal!

    Blessings!
