23 Weeks!

week 23-23-Edit

How far along?  23 weeks, 3 days

Total weight gain:  Enough, haha, but I have my routine doctor’s appointment this Friday, so I’ll tell you then!

Maternity clothes?: I bought a few more things to wear, a cute shirt & an awesome maxi dress!  It’s so comfy!

Have you started to show yet:  Yes and people at work love the bump!

Symptoms:  Some headaches, but nothing water can’t fix or naps!

Stretch marks?:  No and I’m hoping to continue down this path.

Sleep: Off and on during the night, I’ve been waking up more this past week to pee, which isn’t fun, since I have to walk downstairs to do this…boo!

Best moment this week: Seeing the big sis see the belly for the first time, she’s SUPER EXCITED!  She sent me home with a HUGE tote full of clothes, our child will never be naked, EVER!  (Oh and buying a C cup, almost D!…yeah that’s big for a girl who’s barley been an A for most of her life!)

Miss Anything?  Walking normal, I find myself leaning back when I walk, but I do have good posture now! (I just slip a little backwards :P)

Movement:  I’m starting to feel like I have a sea monster in there…but she’s been very quiet for the most part…but she does let me know from time to time that she’s in there!

Food cravings:  Nothing really…I get small cravings every so often, like last night I wanted One Apple…or ice cream/sweets/chocolate!  But nothing too weird.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope…

Gender:  Girl!

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out?  It’s less of an inner…so weird!

Wedding rings on or off? On 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!!!

Looking forward to: My 24 week appointment and the arrival of our crib, we finally ordered it this past week! YAY!

Friday’s Letters


Dear Vacation Week, I had so much fun “getting away,” or rather, my husband and I did!  We had a lot of fun visiting my sister and we even spent a day in our Nation’s Capital and seeing old friends!  It was so much fun!  Dear PinkBlush Maternity, I received your order yesterday and I’m so pleased with my purchase!  The blue maxi dress is so comfy and my striped shirt is very stylish!  (I promise to post photos soon!)  Dear To-Do List, BOOM!  We got 99% of you done today!  And it was quite the list! Dear Baby girl, we ordered your crib today and I’m pretty sure we figured possible bedding ideas too.  Dear iPhone 5, well to the family, I finally upgraded and can’t wait to use you, especially the camera!  Dear Reality, please don’t hurt come Monday morning, I’m not ready to get back into the swing of things, I still have things I want to do, edit photos, blogging, laundry, relax!!  Don’t hurt too bad, okay!!



22 Weeks

belly 1

How far along?  22 weeks, 3 days

Total weight gain:  I don’t think I want to keep score anymore…

Maternity clothes?: Yes, just pants though, but Old Navy Maternity tanks are awesome because they are long enough to hid the bum when I bend down!!  Who doesn’t like that!

Have you started to show yet:  Yes and people are taking notice!

Symptoms:  Not really 🙂 or not yet?  Just feeling sore, but stretching and massages from the hubby feel nice!

Stretch marks?:  No, just itchy!

Sleep: I love falling asleep on the couch, it’s so comfy & feels so good when you finally surrender to sleep.  But sleeping throughout the night without waking or tossing & turning doesn’t happen.

Best moment this week: Being on Vacation!!!  My twin sister finally got to meet the belly, she was so excited & even felt the baby move!

Miss Anything?  Breathing when I leave, don’t worry, I don’t stop breathing, but my nose is so stuffed up when I sleep…maybe that’s what makes it hard for me to get a good nights sleep.

Movement:  Yup, but only at certain parts of the day, usually mid-morning, in the afternoon & after dinner! (or after anything sweet)

Food cravings:  Not having a lot of cravings.  I’m kind of disappointed…but I do enjoy eating whatever I want!  Most of it’s healthy folks, but I don’t limit myself to occasional sweets!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not really!  Just as long as I keep hydrated & well fed.

Gender:  Girl!

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out?  In, sort of…

Wedding rings on or off? On 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!  People around me are getting just as excited and buying us clothes & goodies that I’m getting excited to meet her 🙂

Looking forward to: This whole week off from work & spending time with my sister and her boyfriend!  (It feels nice to be lazy today!)  And of course our next doctor’s appointment and making sure everything is okay A-Okay!
