I'm about halfway through my 23rd week, and with each week I get more and more uncomfortable. Not all the time, usually after I eat or trying to get to sleep. But I'm loving every second. Writing in my baby book has been something I've really loved doing. I want to make sure I remember every little thing from this amazing experience, and it will be fun for her to read when she gets older!
How far along?: 23 weeks 3 days.
Total weight gain: About 13 pounds. Thank God it's mostly just my belly:)
How much does baby weigh?: Just over 1 pound.
Maternity clothes?: I have 1 pair of maternity jeans, and a few other maternity items that I wear. But I wear a lot of my normal clothing too. I still have 2 pairs of jeans I can squeeze into with my bella band. I'm hoping spring comes quick! I want skirts, dresses, and flip flops... definitely will be more comfy.
Stretch marks?: Nope.
Sleep?: It's ok. I do have a hard time getting comfortable. And I've been having some really weird dreams.. not cool.
Best moment this week?: Seeing her stick her little butt up... it makes one side of my belly bigger than the other. Looks so crazy, I love it.
Movement?: Tons. She's a very active baby. Day and night. She doesn't seem to have a 'schedule' yet.
Food cravings?: I don't think I have any, really. My husband would say sugar. lol.
Labor signs?: No & I would like to keep it that way for a while!
Belly button in or out?: Still in a little bit. Starting to get flat.
What I miss: Wine. Sleeping on my stomach.
What I'm looking forward to: Buying the rest of the baby items on our list, working on the many projects for her nursery, and having a maternity photo shoot!
That's the kind of color scheme I'd like to use for her nursery. I've been trying to get a hold of the housing office so we can start painting, but they haven't answered the phone the past two days. Ummm? Looks like I'll just have to go in there tomorrow.. I want to get a move on things. I plan on painting with a color similar to the light blue. If we can't start painting this weekend, then I'm going to start working on the bed skirt and curtains instead... but hopefully we can paint first!
