What I Wore: 23 WEEKS

Wednesday, April 4, 2012



Tank: Victoria's Secret Blazer: Lauren Conrad for Kohls Shorts: Motherhood Maternity
Wedges:
Seychelles for Nordstrom Rack Headband: Gift Nailpolish: Essie Turquoise & Caicos


Baby D's Stats!

Baby's size: 11", the size of a large mango

How far along:
  My due date is exactly 4 months from tomorrow... Eeek!

Sleep: Solid. Like a rock.

Maternity Clothes: Leggings, lots of dresses, and I finally broke out the maternity shorts.

Food cravings: All I could think about the other day was egg rolls :)

Food aversions:
Everything is sounding great now! Uh oh!  

Symptoms I HAVE: I still have sciatica (hip pain) but other than that, nothing. 

Doctor’s Appointment:We had an appointment last Tuesday and it went great. At this point, they are quick, 15 minute long appointments where my doctor listens for our baby's heartbeat on the doppler, goes over basic symptoms/issues, etc. And now, since I'm past 20 weeks, measurements have started to be made on my belly to make sure I'm progressing along okay. Her heartbeat was strong and fast at this last appointment and she is perfectly healthy-- we are so blessed. After my next appointment, I'll start having appointments every 2 weeks.

Movement: It's now happening every day and it is THE BEST! Can I get an amen from all you moms?! Wow. Sooo cool. Joshua was able to feel her move for the first time last Tuesday after our appointment. She's really active after 4 pm or so and gets really wild up around dinner time and right before bed. She usually calms down when Joshua puts his hand on my belly, haha!

Belly Button:
Innie  but oh my gosh, it looks like it's going to be an outie pretty soon

Gender: GIRL!!

Best moment of the week:
Feeling the kicks and punches on a daily basis now

What I’m looking forward to:
Seeing her face at our next appointment... I think we'll get to have an ultrasound. Moving out of our townhouse and into our new house (we are closing early, so hopefully next week!) and finally starting to get the nursery going... 

What I miss:  This week-- caffeine, I could use it!

What I loved most about watching my 1st born outside the womb was thinking "Oh, so THAT's what you were doing inside of me." :-) It's gonna be a joy for you. Glad you're enjoying your pregnancy, also. Blessings!
