23 weeks

How far along: 23 weeks
(I skipped week 22 since I was in AR)

A little variety this week:

Maternity Clothes: Yes, I am in them 90% of the time! I bought a sleep gown that is for nursing too so I can wear it a long time, such a good investment, so comfy!

Sleep: I gave up on sleep about a month ago...LOL...I will be fully ready for NO sleep when B arrives!

Is pregnancy insomnia real??? I keep waking up at 2-3am and I'm wide awake!!! Then Brayden wakes up and decides it's time for gymnastics practice!!

Best Moment of the Week: Derek got to feel some really good strong kicks, it was so cool, his face lit up!

Movement: In the evening, when he's wide awake, my belly will move on the outside when he kicks. So cool but so bizarre!

Food Craving: Moe's tofu salad bowl. At least my cravings have all been pretty healthy!

What I miss: My smaller boobs! I am not a fan of these humongous preggo ones!!

What I'm looking forward to: Painting the nursery this weekend!!!! Let the nesting (decorating) finally begin!

Katie said...

as scary as this may sound...those boobs will even get bigger since you'll be nursing (I think you said that?)...and then...you think they can't get any better, and they have a growth spurt, and they get BIGGER. Haha. I have a friend who saw me before and after her 5-6 week growth spurt, and she goes, "Is it POSSIBLE your boobs got BIGGER since last time?"...I'm like..."uhh yea". I'm with you though, I'm not a fan of them being so massive (on ME)...its just uncomfortable.

I am totally going to through the same sleep problems. I always wake up in the middle of the night wide awake! Not cool!

And so exciting that D got to feel the kicks :)

I think they wake up at night and decide it is time to dance because you aren't moving ha ha!

I was with you on the healthy cravings I only craved salads from all those expensive restaurants.

I have a few giveaways going on. I think you got your blocks from the same place I am doing the review!

Mrs. Pick said...

You look great!

Mrs. Dew said...

I totally believe in pregnancy insomnia! It's awful. I think it's our body's way of preparing us to wake up with the little one!

Mr and Mrs. Stoneking said...

Hey mama, lookin good! Can't wait to see pics of the painted nursery.. hope you didn't work too hard! ;-)

Perfectly Imperfect said...

Just wait until he's bigger and he rolls over. Your belly will seriously shift from one side to the other. It's the coolest thing! And hubs used to think it was funny to grab her butt from the outside and shake it causing her to shake all the way down on the inside. Weirdest feeling ever!

Cassie said...

Adorable! The stripes look fantastic!

Most adverts for loans have a tendency to quote a "typical APR"; you will not
likely necessarily get a similar interest once you apply uk payday loans it is unwise to postpone making good financial plans by pursuing a cash advance.
