21-23 Weeks Pregnancy Survey- Baby O #3

How far along? 23 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 167.5 lbs  +4.5 lbs in the last couple weeks...yikes! Baby is definitely getting bigger, and so I am!  ( I weighed 162 with Gray and 157 with Nora at this point!)
How big is baby? With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about the size of a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby'sincreasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.  - Baby Center
Maternity clothes? Still the same- mostly just bottoms though. Most maternity tops are still huge. I love wearing size L or XL tanks right now. They are the most comfy. 
Sleep:  I could sleep at any time, LOL. 
Best moment this week: Lots to catch up on the past few weeks-  Jazz at the Zoo on Monday evenings, 4th of July BBQ with our friends Paul and Naomi, then stayed the night at Chris's parents for the weekend.  Birthday dinner for Lyn with her and Mike at Snug Harbor.  Lots of projects around the house going on. Visited the Kelly family, BBQ/dinner at the Shingledecker's house.  Visited my grandparents on the other side of the state. 
Movement: Yes, a lot. :) 
Food cravings:   Seafood alfredo, french fries, cold sandwiches, ice cream with reeses in it!
Food aversions:  Nothing that I can think of. 
Gender:  It's a surprise! 
Names: No decisions yet. 
Labor Signs: Nothing thank goodness!   
Symptoms:  Well I'm definitely getting bigger. ;)  And pretty tired.   I also thought I had appendicitis last weekend, but after a few hours it went away. Just round ligament pain...you would think that I would know what that feels like by now! It was pretty painful though. 
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on
Stretchmarks? Yes, from before :)
How are you feeling?  Pretty tired lately. Trying to take an iron supplement to help. 
What I am looking forward to: Some fun weekends coming up to end the summer. Also looking forward to September. It easily starts my favorite time of year. 
What I miss:  Being organized. But have I ever been?? Not sure...but I really desire to be!!!
Weekly Wisdom:
  Give grace.
Milestones: Almost to viability and haven't had anything too weird happen yet, lol. 
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  People asking me how I'm feeling, if I'm getting excited etc. Of course I am!! Just wishing that our house was more in order! :)
