24 Weeks!

Woo!  I’ve got a ear of corn sized baby inside my soccer ball sized uterus!  Crazy!

This week there are two new things I’ve noticed.  The first thing is that my hip bones are unseeable.  I’ve always had hip bones that protrude out and hit doorknobs, and counters, and everything else within range.  Now my belly is sticking so far out and over that they now have a big, supportive cushion in front of them.  I think they’ll enjoy not being bruised for the next few months.  The second newest thing is that my belly button is soooo tiny.  There is no chance that it’ll still be an innie by 30 weeks.  It’s becoming so shallow and so small that there is almost no reason to try and clean it, because it barely exists anymore.  I wonder what it will be like to have an outtie??  I guess I’ll see soon enough!  My husband thinks it’s crazy.  Can’t wait to see the look on his face when it finally pops out. Ha!

This little girl LOVES to dance…. on my bladder.  It’s her favorite thing to do.  Especially when we are out to eat at a restaurant.  She must know how much I love public restrooms… eww.  I’m getting used to the bladder dance, but one thing that happened last week was very odd.  She decided to dance a bit on my butt.  I’m not sure how to describe the feeling, but it felt like her feet were in my butt, kicking around.  I had to Google to make sure I wasn’t loosing my mind.  Apparently it happens to a lot of women.  It only happened once for about a minute or two, but man, it was strange.

I have my glucose test this week on Thursday.  Since I have PCOS, I have a very high chance of having gestational diabetes.  I am really hoping that I don’t, but I’m pretty sure that’s everyone’s hope.  The doctor I had last time said he didn’t think I’d have it because I’m not overweight, but I know two girls with PCOS who started out smaller than me, and they both had it, so I don’t really trust his judgement.  I should get the results back by Wednesday of next week.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Here is my belly this week.  I remembered to snap a picture this week!  It’s definitely growing.  Even though I may not be able to notice it right away, my belly button is very telling of the changes i’m experiencing.  I keep being told that I am not very big, but I feel like it’s a pretty big belly for still having 16 weeks to go!  I’m looking forward to seeing just how big this thing can get.  🙂

      • it probably is like a rave in there, dark with occasional flickers of light (when you pull your shirt up). The thumping of your own heart/blood vessels. Right now it’s like 11pm at the rave, not totally crowded. Still room for her to dance. In 10 more weeks it’ll be like 3am at the rave. Shoulder to shoulder. Cramped. “get me out of here” feeling. lol

      • haha… that’ll be fun. I remember going to the club and getting elbows to the ribs around closing time. This time it’ll be feet to the ribs.. from the inside. Ah, times don’t change too much, do they? 😉

  1. My belly button is at the flat stage and the husband is totally weirded out by it – the reaction is pretty priceless when they notice it! Congrats on 24 weeks! That’s a huge milestone.

    • Yea, I showed him how small it had gotten last night and he was pretty shocked. haha I guess he didn’t think about it disappearing first… just that it would eventually pop out.
      Did you shut your blog down? I’ve tried going to it but it tells me that there are no entries. I hope you are well and that your braxton hicks contractions are still under control. 🙂
