24 Weeks Pregnant
And before you start your third and final trimester, you are going to experience some wonderful things in week twenty-four.
The development of baby
Skin is starting to become less see through
Measures about 13 inches in length and almost two pounds
The development of mom
Mom's uterus is still expanding
Uterus moving move
What baby is feeling
Baby is becoming more reactive to sounds, lights, and other startling
things. Some babies will react to every sound, while some will not -
this is entirely normal.
What mom is feeling
The anxiety that you are feeling right now is completely normal. You
may be anxious about becoming a mother, whether you'll be good
enough, and whether you know enough to be ready. A parenting class
for pregnant women might help you feel more ready for the new life ahead.
Specific needs for the week
This might be a good time to stock up the nursery just in case baby
comes a little earlier than expected. Of course, your friends and
family may already have started to help you in that way.
Specific concerns for the week
Realize that if your baby is born preterm, it has an excellent chance of
surviving and growing up to be perfectly healthy.
Special tip for mom
It might not be a bad idea to start packing that hospital bag and
putting it in a location where no one will remove anything from it, but
it is still easy to find.
