24 weeks! Holy. Cow! Technically, we are 6 months in, BUT good ol' pregnancy is measured by weeks and technicallyyyyyy I still have 4 months to go..
Baby is the size of a cantaloupe this week (uhh...!) and LOVES to have late night dance parties. Baby feels very low & rarely do I feel him/her moving much around above or even around my belly button. Speaking of, that sucker is about to pop out any day now!
I have been reading What to Expect & a few Ina May Gaskin books a great friend let me borrow. It's hard finding the time to read but I know these books contain so much information & will ultimately be a huge part in achieving the labor & birth I want. :)
While I have been beyond blessed with a pretty healthy and easy pregnancy so far, there have been a few scares! I'm not ready to talk about the first one but I know I will at some point. The other scare happened this past Monday. I woke up and was leaking a little bit of fluid. Luckily, our amazing team of midwives got us in for a check up & all was good! They're not entirely sure what caused it but they are certain it was not amniotic fluid & my cervix is thick & closed... *phew!* Not my idea of a good time but so, so thankful for good news!
Still no cravings yet! Meat rarely sounds appetizing so I need to focus on getting my protein through shakes & other protein enriched foods. Still seeing my chiropractor once a week which I strongly believe its going to be a HUGE successor for my birth plan! I'll be sharing my birth plan here in a few weeks, along with some tips on how to write your own birth plan :)
Overall, I am feeling fabulous. I get winded and feel exhausted much quicker than past stages so that's an adjustment. OH, and I think it should be outlawed to tell a pregnant woman how much she weighs at every prenatal appointment...!
Until next update, Baby Humes & I thank you for stopping by & reading about our adventures! xo-B
