23 Weeks!



How far along?  23 weeks
Baby Size: A large mango (over 1 pound and 11 inches long)
Total weight gain/loss: 10+ lbs
Maternity clothes?  Yup
Stretch marks?  So far none... I guess the Mustela lotion is working.
Sleep:  It seems to be getting better.  I still often lay awake from 4-6am but now I am able to sleep in longer so it's not as bad.
Best moment this week:  Getting to see our new apartment and do some measuring :)   We are also having fun watching the Olympics!
Miss Anything? Being able to do things... the pain starts after an hour of sitting or standing!   Lots of lying down resting is required now.   
Movement:  This boy is a mover and a shaker!  Often it's right on my bladder which feels funny, but I love feeling him move!
Food cravings:  Nothing really this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  I've been good lately.
Have you started to show yet:  Yes, definitely.
Gender: BOY!!!!
Labor Signs: No 
Symptoms:  The sciatica pain is still there but more manageable this week since I've been home on disability and able to lie down most of the day.  The heartburn has been coming and going and Friday I got a rash on my foot.  It seems like there's always something new.        
Belly Button in or out? Still in, but when I play with it I can make it an outie... it's pretty weird.  
Wedding rings on or off? Still off.    I wonder if when I go out if people think I'm unmarried and knocked up lol.  
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy... I think getting more sleep and being able to rest has helped my mood.  
Looking forward to:  Moving!  We move into the 2 bedroom on Friday and I can't wait to start setting everything up and start decorating the nursery... the first step is having my dad paint the room :)
