Baby M Number 2: Week 23

Another week down!  Time is going by slowly, yet fast at the same time.  If history repeats itself, we could be meeting this one in as little as 13.5 weeks.  That’s crazy to me.  There’s so much left to do – meaning, spending time with my sweet T before it’s no longer just the 3 of us.


I thought for this week I’d put in a different view – my view from the top!

How far along? 23 weeks

Baby size: According to my Ovia App, a corn on the cob/grapefruit.  About 11 inches in length, and pound to a pound a quarter in weight!

Weight gain: I haven’t been weighed in a couple of weeks, and we don’t have a scale at home.

Workouts: Still nothing official, but I’ve started to take walks on lunch.

Maternity Clothes: Definitely.

Stretch Marks: Nothing additional that I can see.

Sleep: Just fine, now that my cold has officially passed (can you believe I was still coughing myself to sleep earlier this week?  Yikes!).

Gender: All girl

Movement: Yes, and very low.  And she wants nothing to do with being felt, because as soon as I go to feel her move, she stops.

Food cravings: Still on the sweet stuff.  With the diabetes test looming in my near future, I’m trying to eat well.

Aversions: None

Labor signs: None

What I miss: Nothing really.

Symptoms: I’m in the easy, breezy 2nd tri, so there aren’t many symptoms to speak of.

Nursery: Where I stood last week.  Things have been busy around here so the only progress has been picking up a few paint chips.  I still have another place to check, then put them up on the wall to see which ones work the best.

Belly button, in or out: In.

Wedding rings, on or off: On

Mood: Pretty good!

Best moment this week: T came up and gave her baby sister a kiss.  It was a heart melt moment.

Looking forward to: Another gorgeous weekend, and one week closer to viability!
