Twenty-four weeks today! 15 weeks (or less!!) to go. January -- birth month! -- will be here before we know it. I still cannot believe how fast this is going. And I'm sure in a year from now I'll be blogging how fast #3 is growing up (cause a year from now he/she will be almost 9 months old. UNREAL.)
This is a big week -- well, I have my last BIG photo gig of 2016 this weekend: 13 mini sessions! Praying for good weather and no rain and no pregnancy issues (which, knock on wood, have had ZERO thus far!) from moi. I actually was suppose to have my 24 week appointment this week BUT since I had to schedule ultrasounds with each it got bumped to next Monday (so almost 25 weeks) so I am oh-so-anxious to see #3 again and how he/she has grown AND where my placenta is. Riveting stuff for you, I'm sure.
Things have been going well...just been busy! We went to 2 weddings this weekend and I snapped 5 total photo shoot sessions, so mama is TIRED. Ohhhhh how I want to call in and just stay home curled in my bed some days, but I'm saving any and all sick/personal days I have for my maternity leave with #3. I've been feeling good thus far, just feeling really big! I swear I'm like 10x the size I was last go'round at this point (although my comparison snaps, see above, don't really show THAT much of a difference). I feel like I look rounder and the babe is a bit lower -- although it feels higher. But looking at the pics id definitely LOOKS lower -- so heck, maybe it is a boy and my 99% sure self that it's a girl is actually wrong!
I have really FINALLY been feeling #3 move A LOT. Again, not as much as I remember feeling at 24 weeks with Rosie, but way more movement than in the past couple weeks. Mike has been able to feel him/her (he says him) this past week which has been fun. Very active little thing in there!
Here's a lovely little comparison snap from 10/17/14 and 10/17/16...only about a 9ish week or so difference for ya -- 15 weeks vs. almost 24 weeks :)
Since I'm on a comparison pic roll, here's another one for ya: weeks 4-24. BOOM. Babe is a'growin'! So that's about all I've got for 24 weeks with #3! Until week 25 friends...adios!
