23 Weeks

23 Weeks! 
Baby is the size of a grapefruit, but so much sweeter! 
Time is sure flying by now. Probably because most of my time is spent feeling and seeing this little girl kick. I've began her clothes collection, and this girl is going to have more clothes than her mommy and daddy combined. But I don't mind one bit! Girl clothes are just so much fun. 

How far along? 23 Weeks

Total weight gain: Last time I got weighed, I was 116. So until my next doctor appointment I won't update. 

Maternity clothes? My normal clothes are defiantly fitting weird...not tight, just to me don't look right. I have a feeling I'm going to need to invest in some new clothes soon. 

Stretch marks? Nope, still using that lotion! I use a mix of cocoa and shea butter lotions. 

Sleep: I slept great the first two nights we got home. Didn't even wake up once to pee. But now it's back to being horrible again. I just want to sleep! 

Best moment of this week: I start teaching at a new dance studio and summer classes start this week. So I'm really excited to be back in a dance studio again. Now let's just hope my energy can keep up! 

Miss anything? A good nights sleep. Please don't tell me "oh, well you better get used to it" I'm well aware of that fact. But telling a pregnant woman to get used to not sleeping really isn't a good idea. I have to take a nap during the day because I feel like I can't make it through.

Movement: Yes! I could sit with my hand feeling her move all day long. Also I can see her movements as well. She defiantly moves more when music is playing, or when her daddy is talking. 

Food cravings:  B.L.T sandwiches with cheese, and blueberries. I've almost eaten half of a big carton myself of blueberries. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I can't stand the thought of meat, mainly chicken. This past week, and weekend I dealt with feeling really awful and I think milk is to blame. Not like a lactose reaction, just making me extremely nauseous. I stopped drinking it and I'm starting to feel better. Go figure because I used to crave it and drink two big glasses a day! 

Gender Guesses: Baby girl!!!!!!! 

Labor signs: No way!

Symptoms: Fatigue. I've been having some hip pain, which really bothers me at night. Restless leg syndrome happens at matter how active I am during the day. 

Belly button in or out? In...well truthfully my belly button has always been an innie/outie...and now it's starting to bump out just a little bit. 

Wedding rings on or off? On. Which I really hope they stay on the whole pregnancy. They are starting to feel a little tight...but I know summer heat doesn't help. 

Happy or moody most of the time: So moody. I think the combination of being tired and sick just make me not a happy camper. 

Looking forward to: Caleb has a four day weekend, so I'm excited to just spend some quality time together.
