|My Wife at 24 weeks pregnant|
I think I've been stressing a little due to the fact that I have been trying to organize switching cars this week. We're just about to transition to our new 'family' car and get rid of my beautiful but gas guzzling beast so it has been fun and games trying to get this sorted. Mainly because I'm incredibly fussy when it comes to cars but hey at least when I finally get the car it's normally pretty good!

The baby is moving so much more this week. Whereas previously in the pregnancy I had been saying I struggled to feel any movement from the baby, I got a real treat this week, Issy told me that the baby was moving and to feel her belly. I wasn't particularly optimistic as I hadn't done too brilliantly in previous attempts but I placed my hand there and waited before..... wow! I felt a kick stronger than I had ever felt before from the baby. It was so strong I was surprised that it did not hurt Issy! I was a little taken aback to be honest and although it did not hurt too bad Issy did say that at times the kicking is becoming a little uncomfortable. I'm not surprised to though it must be incredibly strange having a human being poking you from the inside!
I'm also convinced that I can now hear the baby's heart beating if I place my ear against Issy's belly. Issy wasn't so convinced and thought I was making it up, but when her uncle gave it a try and confirmed it I think she's finally accepting it. She just assumed it was hers and I can understand why but the heartbeat was just to fast to be hers. It was lovely to hear the baby's heart beating, I would describe it like a fast paced metronome that keeps time perfectly. I hope I will get to hear it better at the next appointment with the midwife!
