New Years Baby Bumpdate: Week 24, Six Months Pregnant!

24w

What's up with Baby this week? Baby's skin is getting pinker, as her capillaries start filling with blood, which helps her lungs to develop!  Her little nostrils (on her cute little nose we saw on the ultrasound this week!) are starting to open, and she is starting to practice taking breaths.

Symptoms? Right hip pain - I think it's nerve pain, as it reminds me of the torture I felt a few years back when I had a pinched nerve.  Anything for my baby girl, but it would be cool is this subsided a little bit!

Gender? Lady.

Excited For? Cousin Study Buddy informing me that invitations for my first baby shower will be going out first week of October.  Hello, that is like around the corner!  So excited!  We also reserved our newborn photographer, and have chosen our maternity photographer - more things to be ridiculously excited for!

Maternity Clothes? I'm pretty impressed that I'm still fitting in about half of my scrub pants, and think they might make it the entire pregnancy!  Tops, however, are getting a bit short, and I'll need to switch to T-shirts and only my looser and longer tops soon.  Outside of work?  Wearing almost all maternity out, but squeezing my hiney into non-maternity at home more often.

Sleep? After a few days of being woken up by doggy licks (we were pet sitting for Cute Apartment while she headed to Vegas for the weekend with her beau), I am back to sleeping like a rock!

Movement? Love feeling her kick all the time.  Handsome Husband has now been able to feel her pretty consistently from the outside, and he even saw my belly bounce with one of her kicks!

Belly Button Status? Still in, but defintely

Missing Anything? Beer.  Wine.  Vodka.  Do you see a trend?

Milestones?
24w I'm 6 months pregnant!

24w3d HH feels his first strong for sure that's little baby girl kick from the outside, while at Cousin Ronomon and Tutor Girl's house!

24w5d I played a little game poking my belly and feeling her kick me in response, and a few minutes later HH sees my belly bounce for the first time from one of her swift kicks.
Cravings? Lucky Charms!

Weight Gain? My doctor says up 14 pounds.  I'm skeptical.  And terrified.

Bonus front view of the belly!
Pony looks way cuter from the front, also.

My how I've grown!
