My Pregnancy: Week 23

Happy 23 weeks to me!

How Far along? 23 weeks!

Size of the baby? about 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (like a large mango)

Any new symptoms? Yup! Got a lovely new one this week. I've been waking up in the early morning to "charly horse's". Awesomesauce.

What are you craving? fruit. I've been eating a ton of fruit lately. Nectarines and apricots!

Total weight gain? 9 lbs!

Baby Bump? Bumpalicious

Movement? yes lots of movement, mostly on the right side. Baby is in a new position too because I found the heartbeat on my right instead of over on my left where it's been the last 3 times!

Gender? GIRL, still.

Nesting? oh yes! I did a complete makeover of Lucy's room. It now fits two! :)

Sleeping well? nope. I don't even want to talk about it...

Buy anything for the baby this week? Yup, bought baby a little purple striped onesie.

What are you looking forward to? putting the final touches on my cloth diaper stash. It's almost "complete" and I can't wait to stop thinking about it until baby gets here and I can actually USE them. lol

What are you enjoying the most/least about being pregnant this week? enjoying nesting, I never felt this way with Lucy. Not enjoying the preggo aches and pains.


  1. Aw look at that bump! Love the dress too! The weeks seem to be flying by- seems like yesterday you were announcing your pregnancy :)

  2. Looking good! Pregnancy looks good on you! ;)

  3. Andria- Thanks, I know I hope they keep flying by because I can't wait to see my baby! :D

    Johnna- hey thanks mama ;)

  4. LOVE your bump pic! *poke poke poke* Tehehe. :)

    Just catching up now & I love what you've done with the room! When you come to NYC will you consider helping me with mine? ;P

    Yay for nesting & fluffy diapers. You look lovely mama. Always enjoy seeing your bump pics. <3

  5. Aww you are the sweetest Yami! Your comment totally made my day!

    Btw we need to attempt to make some meet up plans while I am in NY. We'll have to tweet about it!

  6. Charlie horses are the worst! But apricots are the best! There's a tree in my neighborhood that is covered with apricots that never get picked, and I want to jump the fence and pick them all. Maybe I will...

  7. Apricots are amazing! And is it just me or are they really good right now? Is it Apricot season or something?! lol
