24 weeks

Officially today I am 24 weeks. Thats the beginning of my 6 month. I cannot believe that I hit the 24 week mark. Doctors believe that in the 24 week, the baby is viable if born now. This week my baby's head to butt length is around 8.5 inches and my baby weighs about a pound.

Heres the info I got from the internet. (Word for word) God bless the internet.
Your baby's face is basically complete now. The fetus's eyes are close together on the front of his face and they are still shut. Your baby's ears have moved into their final position on the sides of his head. Where they are now is where they will be when your baby is born! Hair will continue to grow on his scalp and his eyelashes are well developed. Most of your baby's features look the same as they will at birth. Because your growing baby is getting plumper, he no longer has room in your tummy to do cartwheels and somersaults.
The unborn child is covered with a fine, downy hair called lanugo. Its tender skin is protected by a waxy substance called vernix. Some of this substance may still be on the child's skin at birth at which time it will be quickly absorbed.

Soon we are gonna have to start thinking about the nursery and names...oh lord the name..


  1. It will be interesting to see how long it's going to take you two to agree on the names. You are carrying the child for GOD's sake...he needs to just give in to you (sorry Chris!!)!!!

  2. Oh fun fun!!! The nursery!!! Any ideas yet? Or are you too busy fussing over the name? ha!
