23 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 23 weeks 2 days

Size of the Baby? a papaya still

Maternity Clothes? yep

Gender? sugar and spice and everything nice

Movement? She is still the most active around 2 am. She has a little late night dance party just about every night. I also feel her right after I eat.

Sleep? it's alright.

Cravings? Biscuits and Gravy - i was craving SO bad!!! I finally made some last night, so good!

Symptoms? feeling great, getting tired much easier.

What I miss? Nothing

Milestones? We had a doctor's appointment yesterday and she was giving us quite a show. In fact, she was so active that we couldn't get a good still shot of her right foot (we were trying to check on her toes again) We are still fairly sure that she has six toes on her right foot but have decided not to check again. We're going to wait and be surprised when she's born :) She was being SO cute! Grabbing her feet and rocking back and forth, Matt was so proud and calling her a genius already.

Weight Gain? we're at 10 lbs people!!!!!! omgggg

What I’m nervous about? nothing. feeling pretty confident today :)

What I’m excited about? The nursery is coming along pretty nicely! We bought all the fabric and are taking it to the seamstress monday to have the crib bedding, mobile, and glider pad made and Cindy (my mother in law is going to make the curtains) !

Baby Center Update for Week 23:
Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

  1. Yay 23 weeks! Don't worry, I had gained 10 lbs (exactly) by the time I was 23 weeks. You'll be fine. And so funny, I craved cracker barrel biscuits around that time too! haha. I'm glad your pregnancy is going well!
