24 weeks

Weekly e-mail update: 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.
How far along?: 24 weeks
How big is baby?: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 (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up.
Weight gain?: I have gained 10 pounds.
Stretch marks?: Not yet. Lathering up the lotion.
Maternity clothes?: Still using the belly band with my normal clothes. I love leggings and yoga pants!
Food cravings?: Anything cold.
Sleep?: Little Miss L. has been suffering from an allergic reaction for the past week...many sleepless nights!
Gender?: Coming very soon...
Exercise?: Still working up a sweat by packing.
What's been going on?: This week, the little one has been moving all over the place. Those little flickers are now kicks and daddy is now able to enjoy them as well. The little one co-operated and we were able to find out the sex of the new addition. We can't wait to share the news with everyone this weekend. I meet again with my ob/gyn next week and he will probably schedule my glucose test... not looking forward to that. Let's hope I pass the first test this time around and won't have to take the 3 hour test later on. Looking forward to filling my belly with good food this weekend. So, what do you think... is it team pink or blue?!?!?!
