24 weeks!

Dear D,

Happy viability day/week! Survival chances outside of the womb from this point on just go up and up. But you better keep on cooking till at least mid January!
So we've hit two big milestones today. 24 weeks pregnant this week or 6 months! 16 weeks (give or take) to go! And 3 more weeks till we are in the third trimester! Eeek it's going to go by so fast.
Today I had an appointment with WIC and they had me take a "benefits of breastfeeding class". While I am all for breastfeeding and plan to do it for as long as possible, it was really boring and I felt as thought some of their information was not fully factual and really biased. You must have thought it was really boring as well because you were just kicking and wiggling away the whole time!

This week D is about 14 inches long and close to 2 pounds! That's about the size of a head of cauliflower. Oh since D is a boy that means that this week his testicles will be making their 3-4 day trip from his tummy to the scrotum. Growth will be slow and stead from here on out with most of his weight being put on during the third trimester...Guess that means mine will as well, hopefully not to much though.
