24 Weeks

By Lindsayleighbentley @lindsayLbentley

Our sweet baby girl is 24 weeks today

24 wk header

I just got home from my appointment with the midwife and everything is looking perfect!  

I love how non-invasive midwifery is.  Nothing is done that doesn’t need to be done.  We have great conversation and I get as much time as I need to ask as many questions as I have.  My kids bring books and toys and play on the floor the whole time.

Baby has been kicking and squirming about so much lately, which makes me feel so reassured that she is happy and healthy.  I love feeling her little movements all day long.


It’s still strange for me to say it…still getting used to the idea!

Everyone expects her to be a tomboy, since she has two big brothers, and I’m not an ultra “girly-girl” myself.  But I can’t wait to see what kind of little girl she wants to be.

She may love pink, and glitter, and ruffles, and insist on wearing a pretty dress every day.

She may want to wear shorts and a pony-tail and rough-house, and play in the dirt.

Whatever she wants to be, we will embrace it, encourage it.  Support her needs and delight to cultivate her interests: be it ballet or catching frogs.

Her…seriously, it may not sink in until we meet her.

I’ve stopped craving any specific food…I’m just craving food in general.  All food.  I’m hungry constantly.  It seems that every night, right as I am finally crawling into bed, I realize that I am starving!

Apples and peanut butter to the rescue.

I’m so thankful to have had a healthy pregnancy thus far.  The weather has been absolutely beautiful so every day we play outside as much as possible.  We will go for a walk (Henry runs most of the time!), play soccer, play baseball, play football, etc.  I had a hard time getting exercise while the weather was cold, because, let’s be honest, prenatal workout DVD’s are suuuuper boring, so this change suits me just fine!

My next move is to find a holistic pediatrician.

Still haven’t decided on a name for her yet…

live well. be well.
