23 Weeks

Please don't mind my lack of makeup and fresh from the shower hair. That's the best you'll get from me at 10pm.

How far along: 23 weeks

Total weight gain: 126lbs, up 14 pounds. Thank you El Vaquero.

Maternity Clothes: Still in all non-maternity clothes and using the Bella Band

Best moment this week: enjoying Memorial Day weekend in good ol C-bus.

Movement: little girl is still moving and shaking all the time, so much so that I think she's planning her escape early. Not too early though, please--I want to make sure my mat leave extends past the holidays!

Food Cravings: I fell victim to Cascadian Farms Dark Chocolate Granola. This stuff is like crack. I usually try to avoid it since I eat it all in a week, pregnant or not pregnant, but I just had to have it with my morning yogurt.

Sleep: I'm still battling exhaustion and my night owl bladder.

Milestones: baby girl is packing on the pounds and will double in weight the next four weeks. Let's hope the same isn't true for me.

Girl or boy: Girl!

Random: I'm pretty sure that we finally decided on a name :) I'm going to let it sit with me a while before we fully commit, but we're making progress people! Now onto tackling that nursery. Yeah, about that...

I have been cursed with varicose veins on my leg behind my knee. I am super grossed out by this and want them to disappear asap. I hope to God this fades away once I pop the baby out. My back is sore and I have a hard time sitting in a chair or in the car. Even with all the not so fun side effects I still love being pregnant :) Yes, I'm one of those crazy people!


  1. I have spider veins all over my right leg and thigh. They're really bad. Started before Sean, got worse with his pregnancy, and have gotten even more worse this pregnancy. Once this child is born, I'm going to my dermatologist to see about getting them treated.

  2. Can't wait to find out baby girl's name!!
