Baby One: 23 Weeks

*Please note, this post was originally published on my former blog “Here Comes Baby One” on January 26, 2012. I’m republishing this content on this website to have it all in one place. Hope you enjoy digging up memory lane with me!


How far along? 23 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: 8 lbs.. probably more by now…
Maternity clothes? all the time. It’s so hard to find clothes to wear since most of my pre-preggers clothes don’t fit 🙁
Stretch marks? some.. none on my belly yet though, just in other areas I’ve gained weight.
Sleep: I sleep best when Ben sleeps on the couch because I have more space, but still not great because I’m either getting charlie horses or waking up to pee.
Best moment this week: my shower invites came so I got to see them before they were mailed out by momma
Miss Anything? being able to breathe… the baby makes it so hard sometimes!
Movement: Every five seconds!
Food cravings: not really anymore
Anything making you queasy or sick: Mexican.. eggs sometimes
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: Charlie horses, hard to breathe and tired easily
Labor Signs: Nope
Middle Name decided? Noah
Belly Button in or out? In but really shallow.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: the kids exchange with momma!
