23 Weeks

23 Weeks!
Wow, are we really down to less than 17 weeks?!
I'm about to start the freaking out phase...ya'll will pull me back to reality, right?

How far along are you? 
23 Weeks

Total weight gain: 
I'm feeling like a beached whale...already.  
Just kidding, slightly.  It's not that bad really.  

How big is baby?:
What to Expect says an ear of corn.  And right now, I'd love to sink my teeth into a delicious, buttery ear of Silver Queen corn...yum.  That sounds heavenly.  


Maternity clothes
Always...except for my pajamas...that's usually worth a giggle or two the past few weeks.  My belly pokes out from under the shirt unless I steal J's Army tshirts that are forever long for some reason
Now I've started just wearing a sports bra and undies, can you say COMFORTABLE?!

Stretch marks?:  
None, yet.  
Still applying Palmers religiously
But I've started getting spider veins on my belly?!  
I guess because I'm so white and just don't tan

Seems to be getting restless, I'm wondering if Pierce is moving around and that wakes me.  But, I sleep so soundly that I don't feel it
I've started waking up between 430 and 630 every morning, tossing and turning for an hour or more

Best moment this week?:
I don't know about BEST, but funniest:
J and I were riding home after dinner the other day...I had had 2 HUGE glasses of ice water and a bottle full.  Needless to say, I had to pee!!  I was doing ok, was going to make it home, until Pierce decided that he was going to use my FULL bladder for a trampoline!
Can you say oddest feeling ever?!  J started laughing at me, which made me laugh, which doesn't help the situation!  This went on for 15 minutes, luckily, I made it home!

All day!  He's an active little fellow!

Food cravings?:
Popcicles!  At least I'm eating sugar free lol
and sweet sweet seedless watermelon!  YUM!

Food aversions?:
Not too bad, kind of depends on the day

Labor signs?: 
NO!  Stay put Baby!

Belly button in or out?: 
In...not sure if I think it will or won't pop

What I miss: 
bending over, putting my pants on normally...I have to do some wide legged, sitting down, funny dance and can imagine it's only going to get worse lol

What I'm looking forward to: 
getting our place so I can set up Pierce's nursery

What I'm not looking forward to: 
Summer, I'm already hot! 
We've already hit 91 degrees!

I guess jumping on my bladder like it's a moon bounce!!  LOL
