I'm a day behind again. Oops.
And I forgot a pic again this week. Double oops. Can I blame pregnancy brain?
Not much to report -- the heart burn is coming on at full force these days, as are the emotional outbreaks. I had no issues in the beginning, but the last few weeks everything makes me want to stomp my feet and cry.
Had our monthly appointment yesterday and Lil G is doing fine and dandy. Heart beat was 150 bpm, and my stomach is measuring right on. He's a mover and a shaker these days, and he's apparently decided his new favorite place is my right rib. I can only imagine how that is going to feel in just a few weeks! Thanks hon, mommy appreciates the inside-out attach. Mwah. :)
How far along? 23 weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain/loss: Per the doc, 10 lbs on the dot.
Maternity clothes? About 80 percent. I have a few flowy non-maternity things I can get away with, but more than not, I have to go maternity. Unless I want to look a house.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Not too shabby. Usually need to get up once or twice to pee still. But it's much better than the early days of side sleeping.
Best moment this week: Getting to hear his heartbeat again. Never gets old.
Movement: Pretty constantly now. He has his naps of course, but in general I just have to wait a few seconds and there he is, saying hello!
Food cravings: Ice cream and french fries. I'm such a healthy momma.
Gender: Boy! And I assume this will be the case for, well, eternity.
Labor signs: None. Not even Braxton Hicks yet, which the books claim I should be feeling. Not that I'm complaining, though.
Belly button in or out? Still in.
What I miss: Beer.
What I am looking forward to: The nursery coming together. We are painting this week and the furniture arrives on Saturday!
Weekly wisdom: Never tell a pregnant woman she is huge. Never. What would posess someone to open their mouth? Heck, don't tell her she's tiny, either. Just don't go there at all.
