24 Weeks

I am 24 weeks pregnant today. I cannot believe how fast time has gone with this pregnancy. It feels like I was 8 weeks along and then blinked and here I am at 24 weeks! The past few weeks I'm pretty sure my bump has doubled in size. Which I'm OK with, since the relentless "you don't even look pregnant" comments have finally let up. There's no doubt that I definitely look pregnant now, haha! 

Here are a few recent pictures from week 21-24. (Note the impressive size increase between 23-24 weeks)

(I just realized I wear a LOT of stripes and grey. It's part of my pregnant uniform I suppose.)

I'd say the best part about the past few weeks has been how much I feel my little girl squirm and kick in there. It's funny, I get so wrapped up in the whole "being pregnant" thing that I sometimes forget there's an actual baby inside of me! Feeling her little kicks when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed at night make it feel so much more real. It's such an awesome reminder of this amazing little person God has blessed Ian and I with.
I had my 24 weeks check-up yesterday, and so far everything is measuring as it should, and her heartbeat sounds great as well. It's always so amazing getting to listen to it. Yet another thing that makes this whole pregnancy seem more "real". I was given the infamous glucose drink that I have to consume sometime next week. I won't lie, after hearing from so many people how gross it is, I'm a bit nervous. If you've had to drink it before, what did you think? Is it as bad as everyone says it is? The nurse said it tastes like a flat Sprite.

Happy Wednesday!

P.s. I'm trying to make a few changes to my blog as far as content and design, so bear with me if it looks a little crazy for a while :).
