23 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 23 weeks today.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my last doctor's visit I forgot to ask...I think that they act like you haven't gained any weight unless it's a problem, so I am guessing that there was gain just not too much.

How Big is the Baby: The size of a papaya

Gender: It's a BOY!

Maternity Clothes: I have been living in non-maternity dresses and gaucho type pants!

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling him move all around in my tummy! This actually happened for me right before my 21st week. I feel him move most in the morning and at night while I am laying still in bed.

Stretch Marks: Negative

Movement: Definitely and I love it!

Sleep: Sleeping is still fine, but it's still sometimes tricky getting comfortable.

What I miss: Being able to bend over and get out of bed with ease! It has been the strangest feeling to move around and get up from a sitting or laying down position with a ball that does not move attached to my body!

What I am looking forward to: Decorating the nursery and registering!

Symptoms: Still getting heartburn from pretty much anything...even water! Other than that I feel super fantastic!

Food Cravings: I have been craving vegetables constantly! I think I had steamed squash and zucchini three times last week, ha!

Belly Button: Still an inny, but it's getting flatter my the day!

Signs of Labor: Thankfully, no!

I hope that everyone is having a fabulous Monday!

  5. Congrats Natalie & thanks for stopping by! You are just a few weeks behind me...I'm due Nov. 10th with our 2nd boy!

  6. Congrats on your baby!!! What an exciting time! We just welcomed our 2nd little bundle in March - love following pregnancy journeys and remembering all the fun moments :) November is a perfect month - my daughter was born in November so by the time summer rolled around, she was old enough to play in the water and sit and do things. Hope you have a great week!

  7. So sweet! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to following yours!
