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
