Baby Hamra: 24 Weeks

Little Man is 24 weeks and making a very nice appearance. Today would be John and my's 11 year dating anniversary but according to him we have to start over now that we are married...Anyway...
This week he is the size of an ear of corn from head to rump (not including his little arms and legs). I really like the analogy using juice boxes since soon these will be filling our refrigerator. My pregnancy app said he is larger than the length of 2 juice boxes stacked on top of each other and weighs more than about 4 of the boxes (or 1.25-1.5 pounds). I just can't believe he is already getting so big.

On another note, I found a new drink when I was visiting Hy-Vee this morning that is pregnant-friendly. Perrier came out with a line of flavored water. It actually has calcium and no sugar or caffeine, another good option when you just get sick of water. Also super props to Hy-Vee for the Expecting Mothers parking spots. It was my first time using one of these spots and it was the first spot in their lot. Definitely came in handy after all my shopping.

as long as two juice boxes

Thanks Hy-Vee
