Baby Two: 23 Weeks Pregnant

23 weeks pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017!

Today is 6/1/17 which means I’m 23 weeks.

Baby is the size of a barbie doll.

I’ve gained… well, I actually weighed myself like 3 days ago and had LOST a pound. So weight gain is approx 7 pounds right now.

Midwife appointment this week? No.

Current mood: I’m a little down. My mom’s birthday is in a week and this is the first one since she’s passed so I’m trying not to think about it too much. 

Cravings: Carrot cake & banana bread!

Food Aversions: Y’all! Omg! Today I was at target during lunch and I walked by the frozen pizza and I ACTUALLY WANTED PIZZA. So I got one of those french bread ones and I ate it at work and it was soooo good. But for some reason, the idea of pizza from a pizza place still grosses me out. I’m weird. 

The yucky stuff: Today in Target, I was walking around and all of a sudden I got this excruitiating pain in my lower right abdomen. I mean, this hurt sooooo bad that I doubled over for about 30 seconds. And then it disappeared. I have no idea what that was. It didn’t feel the same as round ligament pain. 

Currently rocking: I was wearing a non-maternity skirt today with a maternity tee but as soon as I got home I switched into running pants a size bigger than my normal size. SO much more comfy.

The best thing about pregnancy this week? I’m finally embracing maternity clothes for the most part. I went and bought more maternity dresses at Target on my lunch. 

What’s different about baby #2 than with Jude’s pregnancy? Sometimes I actually forget I’m pregnant. Now that the yucky 1st/beginning of 2nd trimester stuff has gone away, other than her dancing around, I feel pretty normal. 

I’m nervous about: Getting everything ready for my grad school residency. 

Other thoughts: I’m so ready to have a shot of fireball again! ha.

    You have such a cute little bump! I definitely forget I was preggers second time around sometimes since I was so busy chasing the first kiddo.
