24 Weeks - Our little Letter (B for baby)

This week our little one is about the size of a standard sized letter envelope at about 8.5 inches and 1.5 pounds. Our baby is accumulating more fat, growing organs, bones and muscle. Our little one is gaining about 6oz per week now. Also our baby's face is almost fully formed with eyelashes, eyebrows and hair. Right now our baby's hair is white as a ghost as there is no pigment in the hair yet.

I am feeling great. Starting to get a little uncomfortable, back ache and heartburn. Our baby is moving around quite a bit. We can even see my belly moving. We tried to capture it on video but you can't see too much yet. Maybe soon.

We had another doctor appointment this morning. Our baby's heart beat was 140 and my uterus measured 24cm. Everything is progressing as normal, except for the partial placenta previa. We will have another ultrasound in 4 weeks to see if the placenta moves up.
