How Far Along: 23 Weeks
Size of baby: A little over a pound and about 11.5 inches long
Total Weight Gain/Loss: About 10 pounds-I feel like I"m getting HUGE......FAST!!!
Maternity Clothes: Yes, but most of the time you can find me in a pair of pajama/streachy pants and a t-shirt :) I'm trying to make it on the clothes that I have from my previous 2 pregnancies so I don't have to buy anything else! I have purchased a few pair of jeans and a pair of black leggings (because mine from Caleb's pregnancy were to big).......
Gender: Sweet baby BOY! And we FINALLY have a name (separate blog post to come)!
Movement: YES!!!! Lots of movement! :) All the time! Rolls and kicks are getting much harder!
Food Cravings: I just LOVE food.....LOTS of food....this is definitely not good for the weight gain :( My appetite is definitely in overdrive!
What I miss: My energy level.....it's fades quickly after lunch.....I have missed running some too, but I know I'll be back at it soon enough, so the little break is worth it :)
Sleep: Sleep is pretty good. I have to make a lot more potty breaks during the night and it's getting a lot harder to get comfortable and stay comfortable with my "fast growing" belly.
Symptoms: Low energy, frequent potty breaks, some lower back pain in the evenings after going all day, and the Braxton Hicks are really starting to kick in.
Best Moment This Week: Starting to feel more defined movement in my belly! It's amazing how fast those little pokes are turning into rolls and flips!
What I am looking forward to: Our next appointment January 4th! And starting to get the nursery together! We have the bedding, but we need to pick out a paint color, find some curtains, and start painting the furniture (I've convinced the hubby to paint our black baby bed white!!)
