23 weeks...

I guess I'm really filling out! :)


how far along? 23 weeks and 5 days.

size of baby? the size of a grapefruit...about 11 inches long and a whole pound!!  Apparently he is growing nipples, his face is completely formed (minus baby fat) and he can hear Ollie and Tugger barking.  So cute!

heartbeat? my last ultrasound read 153 bpm.

total weight gain/loss? I think it's about 18 now; lost 2 pounds at the end of last week due to my overzealous nature at work.  Slowing down again, so I gained the 2 back.  I have my glucose screening on the 6th, so that's going to be fun.

maternity clothes? yes, yes and yes. 

stretch marks? not yet. :)

rings on/off? off and I kind of miss them! :(

innie or outtie? poking out just a tiny little bit on top; I will definitely be an outtie in the next few weeks.

sleep? just uncomfortable and switching sides throughout the night and back to getting up to pee; and a stuffy nose at night time and in the mornings.

best moment this week? drove around some neighborhoods looking at houses yesterday...feeling good about our options! Eric's nursery will soon be here!

movement? moving around like an acrobat in there and throughout the day.

food cravings? Love my ice cold milk...definitely my one consistent craving.  Heartburn is crappy when I eat any tomato-based foods.

gender? IT'S A BOY!

how are you feeling? Feeling good and getting bigger every day!  Feet hurt after a day of walking around with some back pain, but not terrible overall.  Fatigue is sneaking its way back into my life too.

what i miss: Mainly just sleeping on my stomach and cute summer shorts.

what i'm looking forward to: ready to buy a house, start the nursery, go home again, meet Eric and be parents!

**Here's a little surprise for ya!  You can see him move right before I fix my shirt and right after I rub my finger on my belly...

innie or outtie? poking out just a tiny little bit on top.

sleep? just uncomfortable and switching sides throughout the night; and a stuffy nose at night time and in the mornings.

best moment this week? We're 100.1% sure on the name we chose.  We've been feeling out Eric Scott and it's the one! 

movement? moving around TONS! I can see it now! So funny! Oh and Ricky finally felt him! :)

innie or outtie? poking out just a tiny little bit on top.

sleep? just uncomfortable and switching sides throughout the night; and a stuffy nose at night time and in the mornings.

best moment this week? TOTSWAP! The most amazing children's consignment sale out there.  Got some stuff for little man and volunteered too! I get to go back this weekend!

Some toys! That baby einstein dvd set was only $15...retails for over $100!

Brand new supplies for $6 total!

HUGE toy basket!

Moses basket that I fell in love with! Only $15 brand new! (retails for $50-$150!)

movement? He's putting himself on a schedule lately: sleeps during the day except for a little "7th inning stretch" around mid-day, after dinner and then wakes up for about 2 hours at 10 on the dot.  That's when the somersaults happen! :)

food cravings? eating tons lately...I usually eat more than Ricky! :) Fried foods are definitely off limits...tummy hates them!

20 weeks...halfway there!



how far along? 20 weeks and 5 days.

size of baby? the size of a banana...about 8 inches long and 10-12 ounces!

heartbeat? my last ultrasound read 153 bpm.

total weight gain/loss? I officially broke the 10 lb mark...I have hit 11 pounds.

maternity clothes? yes, yes and yes. 

stretch marks? not yet.

rings on/off? rings came off this week.  I tried taking them off to put cocoa butter on and  it was next to impossible and pretty painful.  So they're off for good.

innie or outtie? poking out just a tiny little bit on top.

sleep? just uncomfortable and switching sides throughout the night; and a stuffy nose at night time and in the mornings.

best moment this week? I guess it counts as this week: being home with all the family and seeing everyone! It was so nice! Also, no work for the week was nice.  I literally sat around and relaxed.  It was great!

movement? lots of moving around this week; mainly in the evenings but sometimes throughout the day too.  So cool!

food cravings? loving pretty much all food.  I find heartburn gets worse when I eat a lot of sugar and tomato-based foods...so not too much candy!

gender predictions? IT'S A BOY!

how are you feeling? Feeling good!

what i miss: Mainly just sleeping on my stomach.

what i'm looking forward to: Ready to get started on ideas for the nursery, ready to meet our sweet baby boy, and ready to crack down on a name for the little guy (we have an idea but just feeling it out a little longer)!
