23 Week Survey

How far along? 23 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: +0 again, 20 lbs. total
Maternity clothes? Yes and no. I LOVE flowy dresses and shirts. Love Old Navy and Target! They have awesome stuff right now that isn't even maternity that can be.
Sleep: Pretty good, still waking up now and then to re-adjust and still waking up on my back. I have been trying to sleep only on my right side and the pain in my left hip is finally starting to go away.
Best moment this week: Having a 3 day weekend and sleeping in, being outside in the sun, feeling baby boy move around more and more.
Movement: Yes, I love it. It feels like he is doing flips in there all the time!
Food cravings: Cucumbers and tomatoes with salt on them, cereal, and ice cream.
Gender: Team Blue!
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? Innie still but getting more shallow. I kinda pushed the top of my stomach in earlier which made it pop out more. Chris proceeded to get really freaked out and ran out of the bathroom. It was funny...I guess you had to be there.
Stretchmarks? Nothing noticeable yet. Thank goodness! I am using Organic Palmer's Cocoa Butter cream in the morning and this "Beautiful Belly Balm" at night that I got at our local health food store. I feel like I am putting a vaseline/salve on my stomach. I hate how it feels at first because it sticks to my shirt but it is super moisturizing.
What I am looking forward to: Chris having the weekend off with me, getting all of our trim for our upstairs painted, and viability next week!!
What I miss: My butt area and left hip not being sore and sleeping however I want. And raw sushi. The cooked still holds me over though!
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep...
Milestones: We might be starting our Child Birth class next week, depending on Chris's schedule. Things are also official with our Doula, Andrea. I am really happy with her so far. She is super nice and sweet, a MASSAGE THERAPIST (woo hooo!!) and seems like an amazing Christian woman which is a huge plus. She is also in the process of re-certifying again so not only is she only charging me half the price as usual, but I will also receive 3 prenatal and 3 postnatal massages from her! AMAZING!! And that is all for now. :)

Hey Anne! Love the baby bump pictures! Your shirt is super cute :D I am so excited about the doula...Nate said we might have to use her if you like her :D (whenever I get pregnant again that is!) I also loved the story about Chris...I can imagine him getting all freaked out...haha.

You look so cute! WHERE DID YOU GET THAT SHIRT?? I love it!!

It seems crazy you're already 2 weeks. But I say that every week. haha

Vanessa said...

I did find jeans from the Gap. I bought 2 pairs. Gap jeans are weird. If you try on 2 of the same jeans in the same size, one will be tight and one will be baggy. It's weird! Thanks for your lovely comment.
