23 Weeks

May 10, 2012

How far along? 23 weeks. Baby weighs over one pound.
Maternity clothes? Yes and no. Most of my dresses and tops still fit...but some are getting a little short. I'm already tall so once you add a baby bump it gets harder to find something long enough for me! 
Stretch marks? Not yet. 
Sleep: Still sleeping like a rock and loving my body pillow.
Best moment this week:  The husband finally feeling some big kicks! He's felt little movements before but they always seem to stop when he puts his hand on my belly. But not any more.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my stomach.
Movement: Tons...this guy is a wiggle worm for sure.
Food cravings: I'm still craving chocolate milk. And bananas. And homemade bread.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really. 
Gender: It's a boy!
Labor Signs: None.
Symptoms: Lighter and thicker hair (but it's not prettier looking, trust me!). One leg cramp that was so bad I woke up in the middle of the night screaming. The poor husband thought I was in labor. It hurt like crazy! Luckily it's only happened once. Oh, and the heartburn has started! Two Tums right before I go to bed seem to do the trick.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Happy and excited.
Looking forward to: Getting my Gap maternity jeans, setting up a maternity photo session, painting the changing table, and hopefully passing my glucose test next week. Wish me luck!

  1. I forgot about the evil glucose test!! At least morning sickness is over for you, stupid sugar water. And homemade bread sounds amazing!

    Sounds and looks like you're doing great! I remember when my hubby could finally feel the kicks, so glad yours can now :) I honestly didn't think the glucose test was bad. Worst part for me was having to sit there. Take a book :) Hope it goes well!

  3. Adorable! Feeling those little kicks is one of the best moments in life :) Is it me, or is your pregnancy flying by at lightning speed?! Craziness!

  4. I still think your hair looks extra gorgeous! as usual!! How exciting that your hubby can feel the kicks...so fun! Good luck with your test lady :)

  5. You're still so tiny!! Itty bitty bump!! ;) And gosh, I got a SECOND leg cramp this week and thought I was going to die. My left leg still feels like it ran a marathon, it's that soar! Not ok!!

  6. You are too cute!!

    And for dresses, I recommend Old Navy.I have the same problem, I am taller too so dresses are already short without my bump. Old Navy is great because so many of their dresses are longer and you can buy regular dresses just in bigger sizes!

  7. So cute! I can't wait to see your maternity photos!!! :)

  8. Oh my gosh, your maternity photos are going to be amazing, I just know it!

    How is the kicking feeling? It's all so weird to think about - amazing what goes on in your little belly!

  9. Isn't the kicking the best feeling in the entire world?! I still can't get enough of him moving around - even though he's now so big and strong it hurts! It makes me so proud! As for the leg cramps, I swear by coconut water. I used to get horrible cramps in the middle of the night too, so I started drinking a bottle a day and have completely eliminated leg cramps. The stuff is actually pretty refreshing and very hydrating (lots of potassium for the cramps and electrolytes for hydration). It'll change your life!

  10. I love your updates! They are adorable with the chalkboard! You look great!

  11. I have my glucose test tomorrow and am dreading it! You look fabulous, can't wait to see the nursery progress soon!

  12. Love that dress!!! You look amazing! I'm looking forward to see the nursery!!
