23 WEEKS PREGNANT

IMG_0835

This week Baby Girl is just over 11 inches long and weighs a little over a skd286253sdcpound, about the size of a pomegranate.  Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that her increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as Dilly n Sugar screaming and bowling pins falling, hehe — probably won’t faze her when she hears them outside the womb.  And this is what she looks like…

About me & Baby Girl this week….

Symptoms:  Movement!  It’s definitely not constant, but I can definitely feel Baby Girl moving about in there which makes me so happy since the ultrasound tech and doctor didn’t think I would feel her for a few more weeks.  Still getting the headaches, but they haven’t been turning into migraines so that is awesome.  I did have a few days with morning sickness but nothing major.  All in all this past week has been rather good.

Weight Gain: -1 pound…. which puts me at 162 1/2 pounds total

Cravings:  I didn’t have any distinct cravings this week…. but I am heating up the oven right now to bake some chocolate chip cookies. Break & Bake Baby! hehehe.

Food Aversions:  Nothing really this week.

What made me cry this week:  My eyes got all teary when I put the girls in bed at night and they say “I love you too”…. Sugar just recently started saying it and it is so stinkin cute.

Medical Stuff:  The cough is barely there anymore…. a little bit here and there, but I’m not having to take medicine for it anymore.

Thoughts from Dilly & Sugar: Dilly is always running up and kissing my belly.  No matter where we are…. we could be at the park, a restaurant, just sitting on the couch.  She is truly excited about her baby sister coming.

Something I am excited about: I got the curtains back for Baby Girl’s nursery – they are absolutely adorable.  The nursery is almost completely done and I love love love it.

  1. I can’t wait to see the nursery all finished! It’s not far from being done, right?

  2. Glad you’re feeling better!

    I am glad you only gained 1 pouns this week…..it will be much easier to get off if you don’t gain a lot of extra weight.

    • Hi Wanda – Actually I lost a pound….. there’s a lil minus sign in front of the 1. My last pregnancy I only gained 11 pounds total because I had gestational diabetes. I find out in like 2 weeks if I have it again and then I will be on a super strict diet again so I’m sure I won’t be gaining hardly at all again. Soooo wish I could eat whatever I wanted because the breastfeeding always burns the weight right off for me anyhow.

        Wow only 11 pounds! I had gestational diabetes with both of mine. I gained 45 pounds with the first one and a whopping 60 pounds with the second. I was on a very strict diet too! My doctor joked about putting me on bread & water when I complained about gaining 3 pounds in my last week with baby #1! LOL
