24 Week Bumpdate!

24 Weeks!!


Size of baby:  An ear of corn! He is getting to be so big! Over 1 1/4 pound he weighs in my womb...
Symptoms: Exhaustion and hip-flexer pain. Hmm... the exhaustion hits me at night. I can go-go-go all day long and then I just feel like I hit a wall and get so tired out. I am trying to rest so I can "last" all day but that can be a challenge for my personality. I also have been getting some hip flexer pain as my pelvis is twisting and turning. Thank you chiropractor for helping me! :) I really like my chiro... she is awesome!

Cravings: Still just really hungry! Lately I have wanted Raspberry Chocolate ice-cream. Yum!

Something you Miss: Being able to get up and down easily :) It's quite a sight....

Jude @ 23 Weeks!

Milestones: I can now see baby Jude's kicks on the OUTSIDE of my tummy. It is the craziest thing. Just this morning I was laying in bed and tried to videotape it but the light was off. I love that he moves so much!! He seriously flips around at least 20 times a day!
 
Looking Forward To: THE FACT THAT MY LOW-LYING PLACENTA IS RESOLVED! I heard from my doctor and feel so thankful! Praising God for the prayers anyone offered up... we prayed so much about this issue. Thank you Lord!!

Prayer for our baby this week:

Dear Lord, This week baby Jude is able to swallow! What an amazing function that is so necessary to our health. I think about this too in the way that we can speak truth and swallow lies. I pray that as Jude's mom I can speak words that are encouraging to my son. I pray that he would seek truth and know the difference between the lies of the enemy. You have a great plan for our child and I praise you for intrusting us with his life. As we continue to prepare for this great joy, I pray against any other sickness or issues with my pregnancy. I know you are in control and ask for you to please continue to keep us healthy and whole. We love you Lord. Amen.

I always love your prayers for jude in your bumpdates. It is so obvious how loved he already is, and to think, it's probably only a snippet of the love you will have when he is here and in your arms!
