Growing Baby Cannon Weeks 23-24

  • Feeling stronger kicks all the time and beginning to sense a rhythm with his movements as far as times of day when he is more active.
  • This was the first week we could start to SEE kicks!  So much fun!  Adam and I have spent a lot of time just watching my belly when he is kicking a lot to see where he moves next.  So much fun and such a joy!
  • This week I bought a few clothes for him at the thrift store- just some basics to have on hand.
  • The heartburn has continued for sure, and everyone has been telling me that a lot of heartburn in pregnancy means baby will have a lot of hair??  With two light-headed parents, I don’t know about that, but we’ll see!
  • This week I have been getting just very excited for him to be born!  I am trying to enjoy pregnancy and each stage that comes with it, but definitely feeling excited to meet this little boy, to see what he looks like, and to get to hold him on the outside!
  • I told Adam this week “I love being pregnant” during those first weeks when I never thought I would feel human again- I definitely didn’t think I would be able to say that- but this whole process is just a miracle to be a part of, and I am thankful for a healthy body that is helping me to carry this little man and to be a safe place for him to grow.

  • This week I feel like my belly is really sticking out there!  It was for sure more noticeable at work. It’s a strange thing to know that other people are sort of watching your belly as it grows! I will say that my green work apron is definitely NOT the most flattering for maternity style, but other than that, I am having fun dressing with this belly!
  • Sweet Cannon is a busy guy in there, and I just love feeling him move around.
  • I am feeling pretty strongly now that we need to start preparing some things and getting ready for him to join our family.  I kinda hate baby “stuff” all the crazy gizmos and gadgets that the baby apps tell you just HAVE to have for your child.  I figure as long as we have the basics- diapers, a carseat, and a place for him to sleep and US- we should be pretty good!
  • Heartburn.
  • When I have to go to the bathroom- I for real, HAVE to go to the bathroom.
  • I have had a lot more discomfort in my belly area- I think it’s just stretching to make room for this growing baby!
  • Can’t believe we are in just the last few weeks before the third trimester! Crazy.
