23 Weeks

How far along?
23 weeks
Total weight gain:
4, maybe 5?
Maternity clothes?
Yeah, buddy! Maternity shorts all the way. Me likey.
Sleep:
Great! Now that I have a maternity pillow and figured out how to use it! [Those things should come with instructions!] I still get up once, maybe twice to pee, but I sleep so soundly in between.
Symptoms:
The devil allergies. It’s awful. But doing much better today, thank goodness. 
What I’m Looking forward to:
While I’m not looking forward to the process of cleaning out my closet, and the baby’s room, I am looking forward to making progress and getting it d.o.n.e. 
Cravings:
Still nothing.
Aversions:
Nothing.
Best moment this week:
Going to a cute little French cafe downtown with my husband, just enjoying “us” time before he starts back up to med school on Monday.
Movement:
Lots! All the time, and lots of rolls. Plus, she’s given me a few good kicks to the bladder for the first time this past week.
Gender:
girlie girl
Belly button in or out?
Almost flat.
What I miss:
Being able to control my allergies. Nothing seems to work! The doc told me which meds I can take, but I still try to avoid all meds if possible. 
Milestones:
Little Girl is over 11 inches long, and over a pound. She can feel me dance, and hear the dog bark!
Favorite moments:
Feeling her move right before I go to bed.

  1. Allergies are a big pain..I know it sounds weird but first thing in the morning when I drink my coffee or hot tea, I put the cup on my face haha. I *feel* like it helps break up all the gunk and it just feels soothing! You look great..cute little bump!

  2. You're looking great! It sucks that you have those allergies though. I don't know if you've tried it already, but you can take Benadryl for it (it's one of the safe meds). Oh, and my favorite moments are when she kicks too! I just want to hug her each time she does it! It's the best feeling ever!
