Last night was a HUGE milestone...Craig felt Peanut kick for the first time. I've been feeling the little guy moving around for a few weeks now, but it was awesome to finally get to share that feeling (as much as you can 'share' the feeling of getting kicked in the gut from the inside).

So far, so good.

I haven't had a lot of problems the last few weeks. No more heartburn, only mild headaches and some mild lower back pain. I've enlisted the help of a chiropractor (which reminds me, I need to make an appointment for later this week) and my trusty Massage Company.

Craig picked up the crib last night, so by this weekend I should be able to post some updated pictures of the nursery, too.

You have 16 Weeks, 1 Days to go!
Your due date is December 31, 2008.

Here's what's happening during Week 24 of your pregnancy...

Your Growing Baby: Your baby weighs a little over a pound and is about 8 1/2 inches long—the size of a banana. Your baby's skin becomes less translucent as pigment is deposited, and it looks wrinkly because her body is making her skin more quickly than it makes the fat to pad underneath it. Your baby's unique hand- and footprints are forming. You may feel jumps as she has bouts of hiccups. In fact, it may seem like the baby is in perpetual motion. Some babies now kick in response to sounds and touch from outside the womb. Encourage your partner to talk to the baby, and see if she kicks in response!

Your Changing Body: Your uterus is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches above your belly button, and your bump is definitely apparent and hard to disguise! You may be suffering from heartburn, muscle aches, sore feet, fatigue, and dizziness. Call your care provider if you feel dizzy often or if you faint; it may be a sign of anemia. Dizziness if often caused by low blood sugar or by standing up too fast. Rise slowly, and eat regularly.

Hey there, gorgeous!!! You're looking great! I'm glad to hear that some of the less fun symptoms are easy up now, too.
