How far along: 23 Weeks
Weight gain: around 7lbs.
Maternity clothes: Lots of loose shirts since I still feel that I just look chubby and not pregnant so its been hard to dress some days. I'm excited its getting colder so I can wear all my sweaters and wintery clothes. haha
Stretch marks: I think I got a few new ones.. uh oh.
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: Sleep is good but some days I wake up with a really big headache. or feeling like I got hit by a truck which really sucks.
Best moment this week: My mom got into town on Wednesday so we have been hanging out with family a lot. On Saturday we convinced my mom to go to The Straw Maze (where Andrew works) with Emily and I. It was AWESOME. and hilarious. Emily is super easy to scare and my mom was pretty funny to listen to and I am sure I was looking pretty funny. At one point they each pulled me in two different directions! haha I am sure we were pretty comical. But it was so much fun and I am so glad we got to go together.
Miss anything: I miss going to the gym. in provo. with yoga classes. and zumba classes. and personal TV's...haha. But really I actually miss that. And yes I can go to the gym here in Rexburg but we have been so busy and I come home and my body does not want to move any more, it moves and lifts enough at work. Maybe I can convince myself to start doing yoga at home. I am sure it will help a TON!Movement: Lots of movement! I can feel him so much more now and I really feel that it just keeps getting stronger and stronger. I can't imagine what it will be like 10 weeks from now! Today I think I felt him actually kicking my bladder. It was the strangest feeling. It's cool to feel him move but so weird. haha my insides just aren't too sure what is going on. I am pretty sure I also saw my stomach move when he kicked me. I was hanging out at Justina's and we had just put the boys to bed and after much noise and rambunctiousness I sat on the couch and was feeling him move a TON and some HUGE kicks which full on shook my belly. Such a crazy and cool thing to experience!
Cravings: I am always crazing Mexican food. This week I really want it. I think I might have to convince Andrew to go to Costa Vida with me asap. I am also still loving lots of sweets.Queasy or sick: No sickness. My head has been hurting a lot more than before. Almost like a dull achyness and it doesn't go away easily. Acid reflux is getting more and more prominent too. I am sure that will keep getting worse as baby grows. I am just glad there is medicine to help control it.
We also have a doctors appointment this week which is fun just getting to hear baby boys heartbeat and getting an update on how he looks in there.
