23 weeks

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.

Who ever told you that you are huge, you should probably give them a swift kick in the knee. Sorry!
