24 weeks pregnant: Fast facts
Your baby weighs about 1 1/3 lbs and is almost a foot long – about the length of an ear of corn.
Your baby's body is starting to fill out and plump up. The brain is growing quickly, and taste buds are continuing to develop.
Is your hair extra gorgeous and thick now? That's because the hair you normally shed is staying on your head longer than usual.
To protect your baby in the car, wear a seatbelt. The lap belt goes under your belly, low and snug, and the shoulder belt goes between your breasts and above your belly.
Are you okay with strangers rubbing your pregnant belly? "No, never," said most women in a our site poll.
To save on maternity clothes, ask friends for hand-me-downs, host a clothing swap for expecting moms, and look for deals in stores.
