23 Weeks… And a VERY active baby girl



Weeks pregnant?: TWENTY-THREE!!!!

Maternity clothes?: As many of them as I can get, the belly is growing like crazy! Its still so weird for me to look up and see this stomach that was not there a few short months ago

Stretch marks?: Nope


Best moment this week?: Having been blessed with a job that is super excited for me to be pregnant and is working around my doctors appointments and will allow me to bring Demi into work some after I have her! It really has been wonderful for us

Miss Anything?: CLOTHES and HEELS!!! I still miss my skinny jeans, I miss being able to grab the size 2/4’s off the rack and oh yeah I miss clothes that dont have elastic! Everyone says I look cute preggers but I feel a little bloaded and bleh. I REALLY miss shoesI feel like my feet and my heels are not thebest of friends right now, I can still wear them I just have to kick them off more than I used to

Movement?: ummmm maybe I should maintain the consistent ALL THE TIME!!! I heard it best this morning, you took two college athletes who are still extremely active and they made a child, what else do you expect… you know when the doctor cant find a heart beat on the doppler because she moves too much to hear one that you are in a TON of trouble!

Food cravings: apples, tons of apples and grapes with the occasional Snyders honey mustard and onion pretzel lol

Gender: GIRL!!!!

Symptoms?: Swelling…. lots of it. I am drinking well over 10 glasses of water a day and still swelling so much, cut out salt, still swelling, its really annoying!

Belly Button in or out?: We are at a half and half point, it is starting to definitely get closer and closer to being an outie…

Wedding rings on or off?: On :) 

Happy or Moody most of the time?:  A little bit of everything lately, I cried when I couldnt see my feet anymore if I stood at attention! Haha I have to keep telling myself my mom popped with me and was super big and all stomach because I am feeling all sorts of emotions about the weight gain but am lucky enough to have a husband who is still helping me with weights/walking and zumba so its at least keeping somewhat sane!

Looking forward to?: 3rd TRIMESTER!!!!!!!!

What Demi Is Up Too:

This week our sweet baby girl is still sitting at 11 inches, but is weighing in at 1.3 pounds!Oour little doll-sized babe is about to chub up a bit more too. Her saggy skin will start to fit her frame as fat deposits fill things out. Beginning this week, she’ll start to pack on the pounds and by month’s end she’ll be double the weight he is now (though I won’t be — whew!). Right now, our sweet Demi’s organs and bones are visible through her skin, which has a red hue due to developing veins and arteries beneath. But once those fat deposits settle in, she’ll become less transparent.
