How far along: 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 20 lbs (not happy with this number, but I swear it is all baby)
Maternity clothes: Belly bands and dresses
Stretch marks: Now the tanned ones are peeling from being sunburned
Sleep: Eh….it is not terrible but I wish I could sleep on my back or my belly more.
Best moment this week: We got all the fabric for his room and a few other projects purchased. I am excited to get working on them soon.
Movement: So I have noted that it is mostly at night time. Well this week, he moved some but it was not a ton. Then this weekend he moved like crazy. I realized that it seems to coincide with times that Ben is around. I wonder if he is more active because he hears Ben’s voice or because we are both talking more to each other.
Food cravings: All I wanted were sweets this week.
Food aversions: I had really bad heartburn for a few days so nothing sounded good.
Gender: Oh boy!
Labor Signs: No freaking way!
Belly Button in or out? Mine is so far back and still is, I am not sure it will ever pop out. However, it is making a very awkward looking flat spot on my bump.
What I miss: Being comfortable in my own body. I am starting to be uncomfortable all the time (and I know I still have 4 months to go). I am just having lots of abdominal pressure and a pinching pain in my hips.
What I am looking forward to: My parents are coming within the next month and helping us get the nursery started.
Weekly Wisdom: Assurance from other pregnant ladies that my weight is normal.
Milestones: Nothing major this week.
Measurements: Chest- -.25”, Waist- +.5”, Hips- +.25”, Circumference- I will start posting the updates next week
