How Many Weeks: 23 weeks!
Total Weight Gain: 6 +/- pounds
Baby Size: Grapefruit
- He's forming little nipples (Haha! Yeah, really!)
- His face is fully formed now -- he just needs a little extra fat to fill it out. (I can certainly help with that!)
- He's listening to my voice and heartbeat -- and even to loud sounds like cars honking and dogs barking. I've got to get K&J to record their voices so I can play them for the butterball! Can't you see it now - my wittle bewy with a set of headphones on it?? (wink, wink)
Sleep: Not too bad lately. Although, I wake up every time my husband steps in the room at crazy hours. That is something that I haven't done in a while... I can, however, get back to sleep relatively quickly; so, I'm not complaining.
Movement: Have I mentioned that this boy moves ALL THE TIME? Yeah, he does. He especially enjoys kicking my awkward girly parts down below causing me to jump or squirm with "delight"...
Symptoms: Nothing new, really! My heavy, large and ever-growing boobies continue along the same path. My oh-so-smexy veins in my legs are just as beautious as ever. My headaches are still there. Oh, maybe an addition!! I now have some heavy, "full" feeling legs when I walk/stand for longer periods of time. But, that's an easy fix - I'll just sit on my arse.... Yeah right (wink, wink).
Food Cravings/Aversions: Special K Red Berries is really kicking some serious butt these days.
I'm looking forward to: My brother's wedding is this weekend!!! HOLY SMOKES! We will be traveling there tomorrow morning and will return in a week and a half (so, probably a delayed 24 week post). I can't wait to see my family all together. Yay!!
