24 Weeks

Time has flown by! I had my 20 week ultrasound (didn't find out the gender) but baby is doing well, besides measuring 3-4 weeks ahead. Looks like I am growing another 10 + pound baby. Please pray for my vagina. No matter the size of the baby it's going to hurt, but big babies I assume are a little tougher. Who knows. Not me, because the last baby I had was 10 pounds 6.1 oz so I can't compare it to a "normal" birth weight baby.

I'm just starting to feel huge. Last week my center of gravity shifted and I have been bumping into this and that and knocking things over. I'm definitely in maternity clothes at this point. I am having a lot of  joint pain really early this time around (with Reuben this didn't happen until around the last 2 months) and I think it's because I still have my abdominal split issue. Pregnancy is making it worse again, and I will have to start all over with physical therapy to close it up after birth. Not looking forward to that, but what can you do?

Here are some pictures of around 24 weeks with Reuben--I think I am definitely bigger this time.

Pregnancy woes? I am having some serious gut issues that are driving me crazy. I can't wait to get this baby out of me in the hopes that my gut will calm down. I was symptom free for six months before getting pregnant with this new squish, so I have no idea what is wrong or how to fix it. Ugh.

Also, nesting. Nesting like crazy. This baby is going to have a nursery before he or she is born. At least that is my goal! If you want to see how that is going follow my daily vlogging account.

I am excited about this new baby. I am hoping for a girl. But I am trying to be happy with whatever God has blessed us with.
