How far along? 23 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: Grapefruit!
Total weight gain: About 8 – 9 lbs
Baby is a: Girl!
Stretch marks? Nope. I’m still using bio oil at the moment.
Symptoms: A lot of stretching going on around my belly. Sometimes I feel like my belly button is about to pop.
Sleep: Pretty good. I only wake up once to go pee in the middle of the night.
Best moment this week: My hubby taking me to our favourite french restaurant where I enjoyed a silky, buttery seared sea bass over a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and local vegetables. He had the moules et frites! I worked on his fries after I devoured my meal. hehe. 😉 We also bought our change table as well. Another thing to check off our list. =)
Worst moment of the week: I woke up in the middle of the night this week with major cramps. I was in the fetal position for about 15 minutes before the pain went away. She was also moving a ton that night so I’m thinking either my uterus was stretching like mad or it was gas (TMI?).
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? I miss running. I’m currently coaching track at school and want to run with the kids so bad. Instead, I simply demonstrate proper running form and constantly yell ‘keep going’ & ‘run run run.’
Movement: Tons! Especially when I hit the pillow to go to sleep. I honestly don’t mind the kicking at all. It’s comforting to know she’s having a good time in there and is active. However, its when she kicks me near my girly parts that makes me jump out of my seat! lol.
Food Cravings: Orange juice, smoothies, tropical fruit (I ate 4 gigantic mangoes this week all by myself), apples, wow…I guess I’m craving fruits lately.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Have you started to show yet? Oh yes. No longer look like I was only carrying extra holiday weight. 😉
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: getting a registry started and gearing up for the nursery.
