Wow, these last 23 weeks truly have flown by. I haven’t exactly kept up with weekly updates, but for the most part things haven’t changed dramatically from week to week. I’m looking forward to blogging more, figuring out how to turn my “couch pregnancy” into a “fit pregnancy”, and meeting our little one!
How far along are you? 23 weeks today!
What fruit are you? A large mango
Due date: February 11th, 2017
Cravings? I still miss all my dad’s cooking, but no major cravings.
Weight gain: Up ~7lbs
Exercise: Sadly, none. I seem to have days where I have the energy, but then I usually lack the motivation! Hopefully will figure this out soon! (Blogging totally helps for accountability)
Food aversions: Leftovers – yuck!
Symptoms: The morning sickness is pretty much gone as long as I don’t allow myself to get hungry! I’ve also had quite a bit of groin and hip pain lately. Dr. Google says it’s just all the ligaments stretching out, hopefully it doesn’t get too much worse!
Movement: Yes! This is my favorite part of being pregnant so far! I mainly feel her after I eat and if I sit very still.
Fears: Just general anxiety about her well being and being a mom. Also, winter…. How do I keep her warm and what if she is born during a snow storm?!
Generally feeling: Lazy and unmotivated. Micah has been traveling so I’ve been spending waaay too much time on Netflix. I bought a kindle to kick up my reading game, but still lack motivated to do much of anything after I get out of work. Some days I have energy, others I just pass out in bed!
Looking forward to: The hubby feeling her move from the outside! I have been able to a few times bit it seems like as soon as Micah tries she gets shy.
What I’ve been loving: Movement and ultrasounds! She was camera shy so I actually get to go back for another ultrasound in a few weeks! She was sucking her thumb and wouldn’t wake up to rollover (sounds like her daddy!)
What I miss: Wine, having energy to go to the gym, and Micah being home more (he’s traveling a lot for work)
Sleep: I’m in bed a TON, but I feel like the quality of my sleep is truly lacking. I do have a snoogle which helps me stay on my back, but I tend to want to flail all night long!
Maternity clothes? Yes! I am loving my maternity jeans! Other than that I’ve been living in Lularoe!
Boy or Girl? We have a little lady on our hands!
Any baby/pregnancy related purchases? Daddy has come home with a pair of green John Deere socks.
Words of wisdom: Everyone told me the 2nd trimester was easier than the first and so far that has turned out to be true! Thank goodness!
I can’t wait to meet her!
