How far along: 23 weeks
Total weight gain: 13.8 llbs
Maternity clothes: got some more for my birthday! yay! I am loving them! So much more comfortable (my shirts are what i struggle with the most! Sicne they are so short now that the belly bump is big)
Best moment of the week: having my husband feel her kick again! I went to the vikings game (september 09th) and this little girl was GOING CRAZY! It was hilarious! I think she was dancing.
Food cravings: chips.. tostitos.. mmm! and chocolate!
Food aversions: nothing
boobs sore- still there, way less prevelant though
tiredness- better since I am not sick anymore!!
irritability- back to normal. :)
acne- better this week!
bloat- I am going to say its all baby now. :)
burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- all gone!
Movement: yep! And I swear I feel the baby get stronger by the day!
What I’m looking forward to: my baby shower, in 2 months. :) I am really enjoying my pregnancy and where I am at right now!
What I miss: weighing less. but totally worth it, obviously. :)
Next appt: September 25th.
How big is baby:
Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb. (taken from babycenter)
