Week 24: Nosebleeds and Kicking

I've gained a total of 11 pounds. The nurse was laughing at me because I'm actually watching what I eat. She thinks I should take advantage of 9 months of eating anything I want. But it will eventually have to come off.
I've been getting nose bleeds a lot. Only one last week, but four the week before. Being pregnant causes my blood vessels to be larger than normal. And combined with our dry winter air, I'm getting nosebleeds on a regular basis. My doctor recommended putting Vaseline in my nose.
The baby kicks all the time now. Richard can feel it now. The baby kicked for the doctor yesterday. She put the sonogram machine on my belly to listen to his heartbeat and he kicked it! She exclaimed, "He wants out of there!". He's a feisty little FermaNelson.
