23 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 23 weeks

Baby Size: She's about the size of a large mango; In normal terms, she's somewhere around a foot long and weighs about a pound!

Total weight gain: I'm guessing 7 pounds.

Maternity clothes? not yet but I think I'm going to go invest in a pair of maternity pants this weekend! I can still wear all of my clothes except for my one pair of khakis that are a bit snug when I button them!

Stretch marks? Not so far! Still applying the cocoa butter at night!

Sleep: I'm back to going to sleep early and I sleep like a baby until about 3am each morning and then I can't go back to sleep! I should be used to this whole running on a few hours of sleep thing by the time Harper gets here!

Best moment this week:  Putting her nursery together!

Miss Anything? Sleep haha

Movement: Well she hasn't been squirming around as much lately; I'm guessing due to the fact that the way my uterus is, she's running out of room. But she does choose to let her presence be known between 7-10pm each night. Apparently, she's going to be a night owl (:

Food cravings: Still loving those ice cold Coke's

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope and thankfully, I haven't had as much trouble with my indigestion (knock on wood!)

Gender: girl

Labor Signs:  Whew no! 

Symptoms: Indegestion every now and then

Belly Button in or out? In but it's getting smaller and smaller haha

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Mood: Excited

Looking forward to: Going to see Harper again on Friday and completing our baby registry on Saturday!


  1. I have the same problem with waking up in the middle of the night...maybe because I go to bed so early? Who knows! But it hasn't gotten any better for me! I am really tired all the time now :( It's exciting getting some maternity clothes...at first! Then you'll be wishing you could fit in your regular clothes again soon haha.

  2. Oh no 3AM :( That's happened once before but I'm hoping that was a one time only thing...yea for getting new clothes this weekend! I've been rocking maternity jeans since week 13! Definitely the difference between haveing a boy and a girl...I'm carrying so low!


Hearing from you ladies always make my day, so please let me know you stopped by!
