My Pregnancy Week 24

Brought to you by
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!

      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 🙂
