24 Weeks: We're 60% of the way there!
Mary Harper is about a foot long (picture an ear of corn) and weighs about 1.5 pounds. I love how my favorite websites are getting so truthful about what is to come: "The last three months will only involve putting on a lot of weight thus making you uncomfortable and not as mobile as before". Can't wait! :)
I feel her every single day and I love it! She doesn't have enough space anymore to do somersaults and cartwheels since she is getting bigger so I get these small kicks from time to time. It's so crazy watching my tummy move!
Her face is complete now with the features well developed and in the right place though her eyes are still shut. She is now just a thinner version of how she will look when born but she will start gaining more weight in the next three months (guess that makes two of us)!
I am having more trouble getting deep breaths - sometimes it is worse than others depending on how she is positioned. It is so weird getting out of breath so easily! And I can already tell the heat is going to affect me more than I ever thought it would since I normally LIVE for the hot months of summer.
I am also experiencing heartburn for the first time. I had to explain what I was feeling to Josh because I had never had it before! I hear that if you have heartburn, it means the baby will have a head full of hair...and if she takes after me and her daddy, she will have a head full of CURLY hair!
I am living in the most wonderful town and married to the most wonderful man. We were married on New Year's Eve 2008 and just a few days after our 1 year anniversay, we found out we were expecting! Mary Harper was born in September of 2010 and our lives and hearts were forever changed! Then in December of 2011, our hearts became even larger as we welcomed our son, Anderson Joshua! Life is crazy with a one and two year old but we wouldn't have it any other way!
