24 weeks!

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:55 PM
At 24 weeks Baby Kendall is officially 6 months old (yes I say "old" as if shes already born.. leave me alone, lol) and is considered viable. If she were to be born from this point on, they say she would have a good chance of survival! This week is also important because if I were to go into early labor, the doctors would try to do all they can to stop it. Of course, let's hope she stays in there for at least another 13 weeks until she is full term!

How exciting is it that the baby in my belly could actually stand a chance at living outside of me on her own?? Pretty cool.

 Apparently this is what she looks like this week :)
 And here's a lovely picture of me:
So I've been buying a lot of clothes but wow, now that we're 6 months along I realize we really should start buying the bigger stuff shouldn't we? lol. We have some of the general stuff down: TWO Diaper bags (for both daddy & me!!),  swaddling blankets, mattress pad, TWO bathtubs, diapers, wipes, health care stuff (shampoo, lotion..), a couple different fitted sheets (that don't match the set we want) for "oops" nights she may have. And I have a few different carriers, breast pump (w/ cream, pads and all that stuff). We could go out and buy the crib and stuff so I really have no idea what we're waiting for but I need to get on John about going to Babies R Us and getting that stuff soon.

At 24 weeks I'm definitely feeling it. I'm not sure why but even with Makenna I always start feeling so dead at this point. I can barely breath, I'm extremely hot 24/7 (and no, it does not help when live in Florida!!!), and now it officially marks when I need new pants. I can zip my pants but pretty much when it comes to buttoning them it's a no go. I have 3 different Hollister pants that can be rolled up to make capris and because of the material and that they were ALWAYS huge on me in the 1st place I can still button them up but definitely not for long time and especially not if I am sitting. I suppose I need to go shopping for pants now :( I don't like that feeling at all lemme tell you.

I really just cannot wait to see my baby girl. Is it really THAT selfish that I want her now?? She is moving SO freaking much that I stare at my belly for hours when I put something on it and she continuously kicks (hits..?) it off. Makenna LOVES feeling her and watching stuff move too. She thinks feels so cool & never gets old to her. I love that she's old enough to actually understand what is going on with me and that Kendall is growing inside mommy's tummy. She tells everyone that, "mommy has to drink lots of water or Kendall will get sick and have to come out too early!!" lol. She goes to my Dr. visits with me so of course last week they reminded me to drink lots of water to avoid pre-term labor and that's what Makenna is referring to.
I just love it and she does always remind me to drink something! Such a great daughter and already looking out for her baby sister! ♥
