Second snow day in a row here in St. Louis! That’s another day off work for me, so I’ve got no place to go and am quite happy about it. Yesterday the temperature did not ever get above zero – crazy cold! So I’ve had plenty of time to put together this 23 weeks pregnant post. And guess what? My bump is finally starting to round out and feel and look like an actual bump! Check it out:
A round bump, right?? Even my friends (I’m looking at YOU, Diana!) keep telling me how much more I’m showing each time I see them! 🙂
Baby Itz: 23 Weeks
Baby’s size? Mango
Maternity clothes? Not yet, however… I finally bought some! Since I’ve been literally living in leggings, I feel like I’ve been wearing my same long sweaters and shirts over and over again. Victoria Secret had a huge sale, so I bought a long sleeve long shirt (not maternity) in size large. Well, it was delivered and is way too big – like really wide, so I decided I needed to buy some actual maternity tops. I ordered a few from Old Navy and am waiting for their arrival. One of my friends gave me a tub of maternity clothes last night to borrow which is very much appreciated!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good… not as awesome as the past few weeks, but not terrible by any means.
Best moment this week: Jonny and I signed up for our first baby class! A local hospital offers a 3-in-1 class of their three most popular classes: Labor and Delivery, Newborn Basics, and Breastfeeding. Itz a six-week class and we will start in February.
Miss anything? No.
Movement: YES! Lots of movement, more and more, and not just when I’m laying down anymore.
Food Cravings: No cravings, just loving all food.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: BOY BOY BOY!!!!
Labor Signs: None, not that I would know what those feel like anyway!
Symptoms: Some lower back pain again when I sit or lay in the same position for too long. The more I move, the better it is. It really just acts up in the evening time, so I try and do lots of stretches which helps for the time being.
Belly Button – in or out? In.
Wedding Rings – on or off? On!
Happy or Moody? Happy.
Looking Forward To: Tomorrow’s 24-week doctor appointment! Not sure if I’ll get an ultrasound or not, but I still enjoy my doctor’s appointments as itz a way to confirm everything is going well and ask any questions I may have.
What else do you want me to cover during these weekly bumpdates? Happy Tuesday! Stay warm, friends!
