23 Weeks

 Dress: Motherhood Maternity / Cardi: AE (similar) / Shoes: AE (similar) / Belt: AE (similar)

I borrowed this little preggo survey from my beautiful friend and new momma Jonna. Girl has been so helpful even from a million miles away in Spokane! :)

How far along? 23 weeks, 2 days
Baby’s size? Supposedly 8.5" and just over about 1.5 lbs, though she was a pound at our 20 week checkup so I'm guessing closer to 2 lbs! About the size of an ear of corn.
Days until next doc appointment? 8
Total weight gain/loss? Around 12 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I pretty much live in them. I have a few non-maternity maxi's I can still wear, and looser fitting t-shirts, but mostly I just wear my maternity dresses, or maternity pants/shorts with a cute maternity tee or tank! So much easier and way more comfy. I tried the belly band too but wasn't really a huge fan.
Stretch marks? Honestly haven't had too many! A few extras on my boobs but I've always had them there (curse of the large breasted). I use my Earth Angel stretch oil daily and it seems to be working wonders!
Sleep: I have 'off' nights (last night *cough cough*) but for the most part I'm still doing well with my Boppy body pillow. I just get annoyed having to get up to pee or switch sides - rolling over isn't as easy as it used to be! Plus if I get up around 6 or so to pee, baby girl thinks its time to play with my insides. But most nights I get a good 9 hours.
Best moment(s) this week:
1. Got her crib and dresser all sanded - next priming!!
2. Found the fabric I've been looking for for her bedskirt and bumpers and ordered samples - can't wait to get it all together!
3. While sitting on the couch watching the Hawks game with B, she kicked/punched/headbutted me so hard we could see my stomach move! She did it twice, and though I willed her to do it some more she must have been tuckered out. SO cool!
Movement: Oh, she is ridiculous! Moving ALL.THE.TIME!
Missing anything? If I'm being honest - alcohol! All these warm summery days have me craving yummy flavors of Bacardi, an icy margarita, or a cold beer!
Food Cravings: Weeeell I just ate a full pineapple, so you do that math.
Belly button: Its an innie and an outtie. Its still in, but if I take a deep breath half of it pops out! Ha! Weird.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! I really haven't been moody this whole pregnancy...unless I dont get a good nights sleep! But even then I'm just a crybaby. Not so much cranky!
Weekly symptoms: Plenty of stretching pains this week, and the heartburn is starting to kick in a little more if I eat something too spicy or greasy or with too much red sauce.

Tonight we are going to prime baby girls furniture, and I start my new part-time gig at Motherhood tomorrow - AND my bro is coming to visit for a night Wednesday! Its going to be a good week :)


  1. Yay! Love that you're using this survey, too! Good grief, you are all official baby glow now. Seriously so cute! People used to say that to me and I was like whaaat? but yeah, it's true. :) Can't wait to see what you're working on for the nursery! And Motherhood?! Sweet gig!
