24 weeks pregnant

Quite a few of you have asked about my pregnancy, be it in emails or on twitter, and me being somewhat forgetful recently (baby brain!), and a bit lazy, I'm finally doing a pregnancy update.

Currently 24 weeks pregnant, which is 5.6 months. Thanks to my Husband for keeping me in the loop with my dates, I'm always asking him how far along I am and he always knows the exact dates. He's a very proud Dad to be and is truly a gift... Very blessed to have such a wonderful husband who does anything for me. Time is flying... Can't believe baby will be here in about 3 months!

Onto baby... Two weeks ago, we had a 4D real time scan which was amazing! Best scan of pregnancy so far. We got to see baby's face and him doing adorable crazy movements! :)
Baby was 530 grams two weeks ago and is about a week bigger than he's supposed to be. Yes, a whole week! Which means I might give birth a week earlier than the estimated due date of 27 March 2013... I would love for him to be born on my Mum's birthday. Come on Baby, 15 March! I've also been advised to not buy any newborn baby clothes! Lol, as long as my little bean is healthy, I'm happy.

I've known the sex for weeks now and while keeping a secret is fun, I prefer that everyone knows. For gifting purposes obviously ;)
For those that didn't catch my hint a few lines up, It's a... BOY! Yes, a little (well not so little) baby boy! :)

Besides the crazy weight gain, tiredness, constant bathroom breaks and feeling uncomfortable, I love feeling him move, his kicks are getting stronger. I can't wait to meet my baby bean!

Will try to keep updating with my pregnancy.
Outfit post for this look coming up tomorrow!
