23 Weeks

Here it all it's glory...the belly!

This is technically my 22 week picture, but I haven't posted in awhile so, I figured this would do.

Just so you know, it hasn't really changed.

Some Facts...for those who care...

How Far?: 23 Weeks, 17 Weeks to go

How Big is Baby?: An ear of corn apparently, 8.5 inches, 1.5 lbs.

Total Weight Gain or Loss: I'm not exactly positive, but I'm gonna say about 6 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: I'm now down to one pair of normal jeans that work with this belly, and only my camis and cardigans fit as far as non-maternity tops go. Everything else is from the mama section

Movement: He kicks me pretty much all day long, it just feels like tickles unless I'm laying down...then it's more punchy.

Kevin felt his first ouward kick about 2 weeks ago, and then again last night we were messing with him go get him to kick.

Symptoms: I only get sick if I haven't eaten in awhile, or if I'm eating something amazing and end up clearing my plate...and the table...

I feel non-stop exhausted, sleep does NOT help.

My lower back hurt anyway, now it hurts more...I can deal.

What I miss: Putting my own socks on. I don't wear socks that often, but we went to the REAL game on Saturday (yes, I finally saw my Becks, in the flesh!) and it was cold so I was going to wear socks...I had to have Kevin come in and do it for me because I couldn't reach :(

Sleeping through the night...example: I got up 3 times last night to pee

Cravings: Anything spicy, whether it hurts my tongue or not...I NEED SALSA!


Water, I cannot drink enough water

So, that's me and little R in a nutshell.

In other news, still baby related...because unfortunately (for some), that's all I feel the need to talk about...We got the crib and the dresser!

I just love them...they are still in boxes because we haven't painted yet....but this is them!

We are painting, then getting carpet, and then they can have a home. I'm just so excited!

Yay! This is so exciting for you. You're gonna be such a good mom I just know it. Now when you say "then THEY can have a home"... are there multiples? Or is this a typo? OOOrrr... am I reading it wrong(which could be very so possible)? lol Hope all is great!

Oh're funny! "They" was meant as the crib and the dresser can have a home, rather than living in their boxes.
Definitely no multiples...Sorry if I scared you!
