How far along: 23 weeks pregnant! Due September 27th!
Total weight gain: Up 12 lbs.
Maternity clothes: I think I have like three bottoms left that fit, because they are so low rise. And now, some tops are too short! Luckily, summer is the season of loose tanks and maxi dresses- so i’ll be just fine:)
Stretch marks: Nothing happening yet:) But I am using a combo of old and new tricks to keep them away. The Mama Mio oil I have used with the past two pregnancies has kept me almost completely stretch mark free, so i’m sticking with it. But I am also adding in a drop of Gentle Baby and Frankincense Young Living essential oils.
Sleep: Most days taking a 20 minute nap. And sleep at night has been amazing- especially since I got myself a Snoogle
Best moment of this week: We swam a ton this week, and had some great playdates with friends- the things that make summer great!
Miss anything: Beer
Movement: Every day now- and it is SUCH a blessing. She seriously moves around all the time, and I can’t get enough of it!
Food cravings: Frosted freaking flakes. I don’t know when I will get sick of it, but the craving is still strong.
Anything making you queasy or sick: nada!
Have you started to show yet: Without a doubt!
Gender: A sweet precious baby GIRL!
Labor signs: Definitely having Braxton Hicks, and some are even a little painful, but nothing to worry about as of yet.
Belly button in or out: Its out, almost allll the way!
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, and tired since it was a fulllll weekend and Jeremy was working.
Looking forward to: Jeremy being off this weekend, so lots of family time- and more fun play dates planned as well!
