Pregnancy Update + Ultrasound Pictures

I am officially 24 weeks pregnant and wish this would all slow down a little. We had another ultrasound yesterday because the doctor needed a few more anatomy shots since baby girl wouldn't stay still last time. We even got one decent 3D shot of her.

Most of the time she just kept her hand up and face buried in my placenta.  That is

We took another look at her "girly parts" and after two ultrasounds, I'm convinced she is a girl-bring on more pink, bows, and frills. :)  I have had a really hard time deciding on a name, but we keep going back to the same one.  As soon as I'm sure we're going with it-I'll let you in on it.  My belly is getting larger and I feel huge.  I'm officially looking pregnant instead of "possibly just chubby". I have strangers all day commenting on my belly and the new sibling for my kids.

I adore being pregnant, but I  know that the "huge uncomfortable stage" is just around the corner.   Even though life is incredibly busy with my other two little ones, I'm trying to slow down and remember to enjoy it all.  She's kicking hard enough that I can see it on the outside and she is always moving around.  It isn't hard enough to wake me up at night, but she always moves as I'm trying to fall asleep which keeps me up.  I've gained a total of 14 pounds which is starting to freak me out a little.  I know the poundage will start to slow down because it did with my last two, but 14 seems like a lot to me at this stage. I only gained 20 pounds with both of my others and that is only 6 more pounds!  Looks as if I might go over 20-oh well, this is my last baby and I'm gonna enjoy it. :)

Yay! Love that first ultrasound picture. You can really see her sweet little face. And I'm with you on the weight gain - I think I'm going to break my weight gaining record with this one!

I think you look just great! We are having a second little girl in January, and I am IN the uncomfortable stage already! I have had to tell my 3 year old that I can't play on the floor with her or carry her any more (til sis arrives) and she's dealing with it pretty well...so far!

Only 20 pounds..impressive. Even when I was teaching 7 aerobics classes a week, I gained more than that!

Congrats on the definite "girl" and I think she looks like Isabella!

You look great.

You look great! It's amazing with how much ultra-sound pictures have changed since I had my first daughter 20 years ago. We actually have the videos...but they are not this detailed.

Well you look adorable! And it's awesome you like being pregnant! I hated everything about it! :-) I gained a ton of weight with my first but not as much with my second. Enjoy every pound... yay for girls! ;-)

OH Honey! This is NOT the time to worry about weight. You look fantastic and as long as your doc is fine with it, eat it up! :) You don't get to be "chubby" and cute many times in your life.
