V-Day

You didn't think that I was going to go this whole week without recognizing that it is "V-Day" week, did you? What is V-Day, you ask? The 24th week of pregnancy is known as VIABILITY week and any pregnant woman is ecstatic to make it this far, including me!!! I am far enough along that if God forbid something was to happen and Owen was to make his appearance, chances are greater that he could survive. Now it's obviously not a 100% chance, but I will take what I can get and every little milestone gets me through to the next.


I am still feeling really good!! I have started to get a bit of heartburn the past few days, but I am not sure if it is something that I ate, or the dreaded symptom is starting to show its ugly face. I am up 9.5 lbs total from my pre-pregnancy weight and he is still moving around like crazy. I have gotten to where I love it when he rolls over vs. when he kicks or punches. Sometimes the kicks are very uncomfortable and I know that the worst has yet to come. With that said, I am by no means being negative about feeling my little miracle move inside of me, I am just stating the facts.


I have also been experiencing some pain in my pelvic bone while sleeping. Sometimes when i turn over, I can feel it, but it usually goes away by morning. I am just going to assume it's my body getting ready to push out a 6-7 (hopefully) lb baby. I truly can't complain though....I am so blessed and loving every minute of this amazing time in my life!


With that I will leave you with my latest and greatest belly shot! 24 weeks!

Aww, I can't see the pic! :(

I've been having that pelvic pain too! It seems to get worse at night to the point where I have trouble walking, then I go to sleep, and when I wake up in the morning it's gone. I know it's just things moving around, so it doesn't really worry me, but it does really hurt sometimes!!

Congratulations on v-day! It's a great milestone! :)
