Baby Yancey - 23 Week Bumpdate

How far along:  23 Weeks

Baby Size:  Baby boy is the size of a Grapefruit

Weight Gain:
  According to my Dr. I'm up a total of 8 lbs from pre-pregnancy weight.  (I've been guessing between appts.)  I'm totally fine with the 8 lbs however, 6 of those 8 lbs I packed on in the last 4 weeks.  HA!  I repeat, I'm totally fine with the 8 lbs but the 6 lbs in 4 weeks was the shocker after not gaining hardly any before then.  Like one of my girlfriends said, "Jack is a growing boy!" & I'm totally ok with that! 

Maternity Clothes:  Definitely wearing maternity bottoms but, can still squeeze into some of my bigger tops.

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  Nothing new this week.  I've adjusted my diet a bit & it seems to help what I think is slight swelling.

Sleep:  It's descent - my hips start hurting though after sleeping on one side for too long.

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Nothing in particular

Gender:  Sweet baby boy!

Movement:  Oh yeah!  & Loving every bit of it!

Symptoms:  Being emotional - gah pregnancy hormones can be a real you-know-what!

Labor Signs:  Nada

Belly button in or out:  In but, it is certainly getting more shallow

Wedding rings on or off:  Engagement ring on but, wedding band off.  Sadly, I can't wear both at the same time.

Mood:  Anxious... ready to meet our little man but, I know we still have a ways to go yet.

Nursery:  We've started talking closet design this week & I'm excited to get that rolling!

What I miss:  I could use a pumpkin/Fall beer.  I would take just one but, goodness it sounds SO good!

Best moment this week:  Scoring 3 things for Jack's nursery at a local antique mall this last weekend!

What I'm looking forward to:  This weekend... we're headed to the pumpkin patch, weather permitting & I'm excited to check it out & get lost in the corn maze.  #nevergrowingup
