My Pregnancy Week 24

Pregnancy Week 24

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. She is now about the size of an ear of corn: measuring around 12 inches long and weighing a little over 1 pound. In the coming weeks, your baby will continue to grow and mature at a fast rate, gaining about 6 ounces of weight a week. Her brain is growing rapidly, and her taste buds are developing.

He is pretty lean at 24 weeks, but he’ll soon be putting on some “baby fat” to fill out his frame and his wrinkled skin, which is due to the lack of subcutaneous fat. He has begun to develop white blood cells. These cells are responsible for fighting off disease and infection. His lungs develop branches this week, and his inner ear is completely developed. In fact, he has basic control over all of his senses: hearing, touch, taste, smell, and vision!

    Hi everyone! I am 23 weeks and had a visit with my midwife yesterday, I have has horrible morning sickness, vomiting 3-5 times a day barely eating, my blood pressure has been fairly low, around 110/54, and she had me track my blood sugar for 2 weeks, my highest was 141, the average being about 116, now she’s considering me a gestational diabetic and wants to put me on insulin?! I had thyroid cancer at 15, I am 24 now, and so that is a constant worry for me, however, since she got on this certainy that I have gestational diabetes she doesn’t pay attention to anything else. I am frustrated with all of this and a little scared, has anyone else had a similar experience? Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks everyone!

      I have! I asked my doc at my first appointment and he said he’d like to see me gain around 20….buuuut I’m already there! At my last appointment he didn’t say anything about it though. So I’m just trying to watch what I eat and keep it under control. I wouldn’t worry unless your doctor brings it up :)
