23 Weeks



How far along: 23 weeks
Size of Baby P: 11.38 inches, 1.10 pounds (according to Pregnancy App)
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Eggplant (for weeks 22-24)
Gender: Boy
Showing: Yes
Maternity clothes: Yes
Unglamorous body changes:  Nothing crazy 
Sleep:  Good, but starting to have very vivid, weird dreams
Movement:  More and more and getting stronger
Food cravings:  Ice water with lemon, apple slices, eggs and I did crave a burger on Friday (yes, I gave in), M&M cookies...so healthy!
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood:  Pretty good this week
Best moment this week:  Feeling Jack kick on the outside of my belly!  I was laying down in bed watching the Golden Globes.  I haven't been able to get Jason to feel one yet since it happens so fast, but I know he will soon enough.
Strange experiences:  Prenatal yoga.  Although I love it and recommend it, it is sort of funny to see a room full of pregnant women trying to stretch and meditate.  We are sight when leaving the studio!
Milestones:  At this stage, baby is weighing in at about 1 pound!  The next five weeks, baby will experience a major growth spurt (scary) and REM has started to occur when baby sleeps. 
Looking forward to:   Learning the gender's of Ashley's baby next week!  Jack will either have a best buddy or an arranged marriage. 
Thoughts:   I'm starting to feel really big and I'm freaking out about how huge I will be by 40 weeks.  With so many events coming up this spring, especially late in my pregnancy, I'm feeling anxious that I will be a freakshow.  I have two out of town conferences in March and lots of showers both for me and others.  I'm really trying to watch my weight gain at this point and incorporate working out into my daily routine.  Funny how just a few months ago I couldn't wait to show and now I'm anxious that I'm showing too much.  I guess there is always something to be anxious about!

Don't think I'm being selfish and it's all about me.  Most important to me is Jack's health so if that means I become a whale, then bring it on.  I just worry, and yes my looks are apart of it, that I will get too big and with that come all other implications for me and baby.

  1. Yay! I am so excited that you are feeling Baby Jack so much! I am anxious to start feeling Baby Girl sometime soon. :-) And you look fabulous and as long as your doctor says you are healthy, then don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Miss you and hope I can see you in March when we are in Houston!!
