24 Weeks

This week she is the size of a grapefruit.  Her blood vessels have developed in her lungs.  though they are already beginning to develop surfactant, a substance that will help the lungs expand after she is born, the lungs are still too under-developed to sufficiently send oxygen to the bloodstream and release carbon dioxide when she exhales.  Her nostrils, which have been plugged up until now, are starting to open this week.  This actually allows her to take practice breaths.

It's been a really busy week and I feel pretty exhausted, I just wish I had more time to do things other then work.  I'd really love to wake up early and do some pilates before work and do things after work, but honestly I am too tired.  Maybe I'm just being lazy and I should just make myself do it.
For anyone who debates baby brain, I am living proof of it.  I showed up a day early (yes a whole day) to my nephew's birthday party.  Which was particularly painful as it was on the sunshine coast (a hour and a half from our house) and early in the morning.  We then had to turn around and go home as my sister wasn't home and we had to do it all again the next day!  I could probably start a weekly blog of all the stupid things I've been doing.
Oh yeah we bought this pram; I was so unenthused at the thought of buying one, for starters they are quite expensive and then, most of them are really ugly.  But I'm actually pretty excited at the prospect of wheeling our bubba around in this thing.  So that means we have all our big ticket iteam out of the way, all we need now are the smaller things....Yay!
