23 Weeks

Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, she's about the size of a mango...a little over a pound and about 11 inches long!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Honestly didn't weigh myself this week...last time I checked I was up about 6 or 7 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Pants are a must...Bella Band or the rubber band trick is required if I don't wear maternity pants.  Shirts are slowly becoming necessary too.  If they were loose fitting before pregnancy I can probably still get away with them, but a lot aren't fitting!  I'm finally getting to test out some of my winter maternity shirts this week and I love them!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: Still In, but let's put it this way...I'm seeing parts of my belly button I've never seen before. :)
Stretch Marks: None, thank goodness!  I need to start using lotion like everybody tells me, I haven't done that yet

Movement: All the time! I've been feeling it more during the day this week, even though she is still more active at night

Sleep: Not bad, but the pregnancy pillow is a must.  I roll over on my stomach without it!

What I miss: Nothing!

What I am looking forward to: Having a WHOLE week off next week to get some details of the nursery knocked out!

Cravings/Aversions: Still fruit mostly, but I'm game for anything now

Symptoms: I've been sick a few times this week, early in the morning...I think it's from taking my vitamin too late at night though.  Besides that, not much of anything!

Best Moment This Week: Going to our child birth class last Saturday and getting some of the nursery finished!
