The weeks are officially flying by and I am officially growing rapidly!
I am carrying very high and it’s funny because I think I will be all baby just like I was when I was carrying my son. Who knows though, would be nice to get some booty growing too, haha!
Just 3 weeks ago we found out Baby G was a boy at our gender reveal…
I am officially feeling pregnant this week I must say! No more bending over to put my shoes on, I have to sit now to do that, got a bump a lump in the way, haha!
Baby G This Week
- Over 11 inches long and over 1 lb! Baby G is the size of a mango!
- Blood vessels in the lungs are developing this week.
- Baby is really hearing well! I am going to start playing some soothing music or lullabies to see if that will cause the baby to move around! I want him to dance a little in there, haha!
- Baby G has been moving lots! I have felt big kicks a couple times this week and it made me jump!
How Diva Mommy is Feeling
- I feel great, the best I have felt! The past few weeks I have felt great except for when I got sick!
- Peeing, lotssssssssssss. I know this is only going to get worse!
- Rashes have popped up on my chest, very itchy! I have been using my boob tube cream to help.
- Backaches, not too bad but they happen here and there.
Weight Gain? I have no idea how much more I have gained since my last month appointment, I don’t really care to weigh myself, no need to! I find out my weight gain each month at my dr appt! I have one again March 13th!
Cravings? Salmon, chocolate, and veggies!
Food Aversions? Well coffee is not a food! Hot coffee, not having it! Yes I do drink 1 cup of coffee a day, or did anyways. Past 2 weeks coffee hot is a no, iced coffee has been better but I don’t really have it that much unless I crave it. Yesterday I did, so I got my fix!
Mood? I have been happy, but also have been scaring myself too! I had a dream last night that my water broke while Mike was at work and I was freaking out because I was so scared. I have to admit I am scared for labor, nobody likes pain, but what a blessing that comes out of all of the pain!
Best Moments? Feeling Baby G karate kick twice this past week, seriously he was kicking hard! I was in the back seat of my sisters car when he kicked on Sunday and I jumped and was like whoa! My sisters thought it was so cool and it was, just scared me at first! A human kicking you from the inside is a weird feeling, but so cool!
Stretch Marks? Nope, still staying stretch mark free!
Maternity Clothes? I really have not got any since my early purchases a while ago, but I am going to buy some more tanks, leggings, and get a couple maxi dresses off old navy maternity this week! I want to find a dress to wear for my shower in April too! I think I am going to wear a maxi dress for that, target has some short length maternity dresses that are cute too though!
Movement? Like I said, karate kicks going on and Baby G is always moving a lot! I have seem to find his pattern of when he likes to move around and is up, so its pretty awesome!
Labor Signs? None, keep praying for a healthy and full term baby daily too!
Belly Button In or Out? What do you call a almost out but still slightly in?! Lol.
Wedding Rings Off or On? On still!
Fitness Going On
I worked out 5 days last week, woop woop! I am taking advantage of being as active as I can while I am still feeling good and not that big yet! I plan on 5 days this week too, I always make sure to listen to my body, so that is my main goal!
I have been dong weight routines with cardio bursts, walking I got in yesterday, lots of squats, and Tracy Anderson Month 5! Month 5 is killer on the booty, I better have a nice booty after baby, haha!
Baby G Purchases!
We found the sun light at Ikea that will be going in the nursery, love!
Adorable onesies that I got for a sweet deal on Zulily.com, love that site! Dangerous when I get an email from them daily!
Registering for BABY stuff! I did go to Target last week and register for some stuff, nothing big or major, just wanted to have the target option for people, especially out of state family and friends too!
Mike and I are going to Babies R Us on Friday and I am sure we are going to be LOST! My son is 13 years old, so it has been a long time since I have bought anything baby needs related, so I am going to need help! We are excited and also just want to make sure we get things that are *essential* to have!
Will be a long and fun night in baby land I am sure
So there is the 23 week update, before you know it, I will be posting a picture of Baby G! He will be here soon!
