23 Week Update

23 Week Update

How far along? 23 weeks!

Baby is the size of: a barbie doll, a bunch of grapes, a grapefruit, a chinchilla, and a buche de noel (yule log cake).

Maternity clothes? Yup. Unless it’s super stretchy and comfy, it’s maternity.

Sleep: Not too bad. Last night wasn’t great (lots of tossing and turning) but I’m hopeful that it won’t last. I just keep telling myself I’m a champ sleeper and I’m holding onto that for as long as I can.

Best moment this week: buying paint for the nursery! We should have the office cleaned out and furniture moved to paint this weekend. Eeek!

Miss anything? Still feeling sluggish.  I also miss my body before all this weight gain.

Movement: A little bit more. When I’m sitting still or laying down I can sometimes feel her moving around. And sometimes it’s uncomfortable!

Food cravings: Red meat and seafood.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Overall, I’m doing pretty well. I had a moment when putting some burgers on the grill.  The raw meat was a little gag-worthy to me.

Symptoms: Sluggish and tired. Nothing too bad.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? Mostly wearing my fake travel ring (it’s a size bigger than my normal one) but I had one evening at the rodeo where I swelled up and had to remove it.

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty good spirits this week!

Looking forward to: Painting this weekend! And working on her bow holder. I took a standing mirror, removed the mirror and painted it. I’m going to put chicken wire in the middle and clip bows to it!  It’s almost done! Finished painting last night. SO Wednesday will be chicken wire night. 🙂
