24 Weeks!

24 Weeks!
      As of yesterday, I am in my 24th week of pregnancy. We had a doctors appointment and everything is good. I have been a little bit worried because I'm still not feeling him move much at all. There are times when I my stomach, but it's easy to confuse with other normal stomach movements. I'm starting to guess that it more likely that it's him moving. When I told my doctor that I haven't really felt him, he seemed surprised, and said, "Let's check the heartbeat to make sure everything is ok." As if I wasn't already nervous, that sent my heart racing. I can't describe the relief I feel every appointment when I get to hear the sound of that quick little heart beat. My doctor assured me that all was well. He even said he had a patient once that never felt one movement from her baby the entire pregnancy! I really hope that isn't the case because I would like to feel him, but it gives me comfort to know that lack of movement isn't always bad.

    Most babies weigh around one pound at this point, and are about 12 inches long. His brain is growing quickly, and his taste buds are developing. He should start to plump up here pretty soon.

     Things are still going smoothly. I got a gym membership to Planet Fitness today so I can walk and try to be somewhat healthy. It was one of my New Year's resolutions to go for a walk at least 3 times a week. It's not that fun walking out in Logan's freezing temperatures, so off to the gym it is!
     I finally found a food aversion. I made enchiladas the other night, and the smell of them really bothered me. I was able to eat one, but I had a little stomach ache afterward. I had to make Lance wash the pan the next day because the smell bothered me so bad. Other than that, things have felt pretty normal for me. I've been having fun doing crafts and decorating the baby's room. I'll post some pictures here within the next few weeks.
