24 Weeks Pregnant – What to Expect Your 24th Week of Pregnancy

Gaining steadily at a rate of about six ounces per week, your baby tips the scales now at about one and a half pounds.Wondering what (and who) your baby will look like?

If you had a baby cam at 24 weeks pregnant, you’d almost be able to tell by now. That beautiful face (though still tiny) is almost fully formed. The baby’s hearing is even more acute, listening to everything from your conversations to what’s playing on the radio. Let Heidi Murkoff walk you through this weeks milestones, then go ahead and download the WhatToExpect app to keep up with even more information on your baby’s development!

She’s still just a hair over 8 inches long and weighs just a pound and a half, but this week your baby is starting to look much more like the cuddly cutie you’ve been picturing in your mind’s eye. Granted, her mini mug has some filling out to do, as does the rest of her slender silhouette, but as she accumulates more muscle and fat, she’ll plump up nicely.

And here’s another benefit to her rounding out. Once your skinny-minnie puts on more subcutaneous fat, her now translucent skin will become opaque. In other words, you won’t be able to see right through her birthday suit to her organs, bones, and veins like you could now – that is, if you had a window on your womb.

Is she ready for her close up? Almost. She’s still sporting bright white eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair, all of which have yet to acquire pigment. When they change to brown, red, black or blonde, you’ll have your very own cover girl.

And here’s a breaking brain bulletin. If you were to measure your little one’s brain wave activity, you’d see that it’s similar to that of a newborn infant. Wondering what that means? Those brains cells have matured enough to develop conscious thought and, most likely, memory.

Couple that with her amped up auditory system, and it’s no wonder that babies who hear certain musical pieces while in utero recognize – and are calmed by – the very same music when they’re born. So crank up the Beethoven, Beatles, or Black Eyed Peas. Your baby’s sure to get her groove on – now and later!

When we opted for one more baby with my spouse, we went for this guide I was able to achieve pregnancy right after three months of pursuing the plan and eating healthy foods. Although I am older, I was still able to change my life-style using this formula. See much more about this wonderful tip on Google. The name is Sofia Goρazna
take care

24 weeks + 1 day. I was reading through some of the other comments. It's so bizarre how everyone has different symptoms. So for me, I have absolutely no back pain, no headaches, no indigestion, no heartburn, no leg pain, really no type of pain at all. On the downside… I still vomit three to five times per day😩 I've been sick like this since week 6. NASUEA & Vomiting no matter what I eat after EVERY meal. I'm MISERABLE because of this😢 Just wonder if the sickness will get better anytime soon. I feel like I'm in the bathroom every 30 minutes to go pee😵😵. All throughout the night I'm up peeing every hour. Anyone else peeing like this? Doctor says I don't have a UTI. Just the increasing pressure of my uterus and the baby growing on my bladder. Also, baby moves alot!! I often wonder if the little guy ever sleeps because he moves soooooo much from the time I wake up till the time I go to bed at night. All thru out the day he's kicking and turning around in there. I often nudge my belly to say hi & he kicks back😀 I also talk to him. Tell him I love him & can't wait to meet him. Good Luck to all my expecting mommies out there.😍
