Today I had my 24 week appointment. Everything seems to be going well, woohoo! The only thing I found out was that my blood pressure is pretty low. Nothing concerning, but definitely weird for me. It’s always been very consistent, even throughout my pregnancies. It also explains why I get dizzy so often.
Baby is now about 1 1/2 pounds and will continue gaining at about 6 ounces a week. Baby is about 8 1/2 inches long, still so teeny! I was a little nervous Monday night and Tuesday. Baby had been so active, and then suddenly I hardly felt anything. I assumed that baby had probably just moved positions since I was still feeling things, just not like I had been. Today, baby went right back to busy little bee mode, and I could feel this little one a whole bunch today. It’s so comforting to feel the baby move all of the time.
Maggie has become very concerned with what the baby is doing. At random times throughout the day, she will ask me what the baby is doing. Is “he” and she almost always says he – sleeping? Moving? It’s adorable.
