23 Weeks!


23 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Back down to 141.  Hoping this means I'm finally losing fluid, because my diet certainly hasn't changed!

Maternity clothes? Still a mixture of everything.

Stretch marks? Nope, not yet

Sleep: Starting to improve

Best moment this week: Not having as many rough days physically

Movement: Definitely a little wiggle worm.  I love it.  It is by far my favorite part of pregnancy.

Food cravings: Lots of chocolate...and cheese! But still not together.

Gender: Our sweet baby Ethan Bryant Orlando.

Labor Signs: Still none! Let's keep it that way!

Belly Button in or out? Still an innie, but it is really flat and weird.

Wedding rings on or off? On usually. The wedding band is still the only one that may or may not fit on certain days.

What I miss: I still miss feeling normal mentally.  I've cried a lot this week for no reason.

What I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound on March 3.

Weekly Wisdom: I've been trying to work on remembering in my sad moments that "this too shall pass."

Milestones: Not really a baby milestone, but a good haircut and color (yes, I got approval and did my research, my hair was colored safely) really made me feel a whole lot better today! Thanks Brittany!

Oh man, you and I have had the same kind of week. I've been a regular crier these days too (and not for any good reason!)

Being pregnant is tough enough, even without all you've endured. Hang tough! Your Momma loves you!

Paige! You are gorgeous, mama! Good for you to get a new haircut/color and take some time to pamper yourself. You deserve it!
