23 Weeks: Baby Can Feel Me Dance!


How far along? 23 Weeks.  According to "What to Expect When Expecting" I'm in my 6th month...woah!
Baby Size: A pomegranate or a large mango!  His little face is fully formed this week!  Can't wait to see it for the first time!
Total weight gain/loss: 13 lbs. +  {I will find out officially at my doctor's appointment today}.  Update: official weigh in is 12-13 pounds.  Good to know I'm on track!  Baby is measuring right along and has a strong heart beat!  :)
Maternity clothes? Still the usual...this is the new lululemon top that I told you about here.  See how long it is!

Stretch marks? No, I am loving the Mustela cream I recently bought.  Smells really good!

Sleep: Sleeping great... waking up at about 4am to potty, but that's about it.  I now also have a pillow on my side to hep support my tummy.
Best moment this week:  Finally deciding on our crib {details to come!} and getting my first baby shower invitation in the mail!  My sweet friends back from home are throwing me one down in Southern CA!  :)
Miss Anything? With the Oscars yesterday, I again...missed having a glass of champagne!  Wah wahh.

Movement: Feeling him a ton...especially at night!  I guess I know what his sleeping patterns are going to be like!
Food cravings: Ummm, let's see.  Nothing really out of the usual. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope...even onions don't sound that bad!
Gender: He's alllllll boy!
Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: Lower back aches, though the pillows have helped that while sleeping.  Oh and those awful moles...I'm getting some of them removed under my arm this week...as long as my doctor okays it.
 Belly Button in or out? It's in, but getting more flat.  Kinda looks funny this week.
Wedding rings on or off? On...thank goodness for being preggers in the winter!  :)
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!  This trimester has been really wonderful so far!
Looking forward to: Meeting with HR to square away my maternity leave and getting the details secured on the nursery.  If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I'm leaning towards a blue, gray and orange color scheme.  More to come on this!  OH and my doc appointment today!

  22. you're so cute! I feel like I look huge compared to you and I'm only 16 weeks - guess it's because it's my second pregnancy and I'm pregnant with twins? IDK? I'm going to keep telling myself that =) Either way just wanted to say that I am loving these posts! Blue, gray and orange sounds great for a nursery! Oh, and I'm super jealous that you still have your rings on!
