23 weeks, TGIF!

Who is ready for this weekend to start?! Meeeeee!!!!! So, let's get to my 23 week post shall we? I know it always sends you all into your weekend the right way ;)

How far along? 23 weeks, which means 14 weeks till I'm full term (and 14 weeks till XMAS eve!)

Baby's size? My little guy is a little over 1 lb and is over 11 inches long. He is the size of a large mango

Weight Gain? 11 lbs so far, but in 4 days I'll find out how many more lb's to add to that 11.

Maternity clothes? All maternity and now I got some great new threads to spiff up my wardrobe thanks to my mother in law

Stretch marks? Nope, still EVOOing it every night and keeping hydrated like a mo fo

Belly button in or out? Innie, but shallow

Sleep? Still the same as last week - I get woken up super easy and have a tough time going back to sleep, but the initial falling asleep and towards the end of the evening, I can fall asleep fast and sleep well

Foods I am loving? No favorite foods other than sweets. Hence why I'm making more pumpkin cookies tomorrow :)

Foods I am hating? Still can't do ground turkey, but everything else is sounding good to me

Best moment this week? Hmmm probably getting to meet my family for dinner mid week at BJ's brewery and getting this little baby for dessert. I know it's not baby related, but that was my best moment so far :)

Movement? Oh yes, and my little man's kicks are getting stronger. I can feel more rolls and thumps when I've been active and finally sit

Symptoms? Hunger!!! When I'm hungry and want to eat, don't talk to me, don't try to stop me making my bee line to the kitchen. You have been warned :)

Gender? A future Denver Bronco tight end..aka a little man!

What I miss? Being able to have beer, wine, and a margarita. Of course Mr. T is worth it

What I'm looking forward to? Painting! We got paint samples today, and I think we might have found the color. Nick has to put another coat on it to see how dark it's going to get, but I'm pretty sure we've found it. Oh, and since we're doing Troy's room in jungle theme, I'm thinking I want to get this decal for behind his crib

Weekly Wisdom: Things move really fast. Write down every little thought you want to remember, including going into detail on how you feel. Your 1st pregnancy only happens once and you will always want to remember how you felt.

Milestone: 6 months in just crazy to me! Also, my belly seems to have gotten way firmer than it was before. I cant wait to go over the ultrasound results with my OB and hear how big he's measuring. I sometimes worry he won't be big enough? I'm sure I'll be cursing I ever thought that thought when he comes out 10lbs!

Emotions: hungry and tired. Also excitement: FALL IS IN THE AIR!!!

Whoa, I apparently know nothing of pregnancy. I am amazed that the actual baby is only 1 pound but you've gained 11...

well i guess that makes sense if women typically gain 20-40 pounds but the baby is only like 8 pounds right? man...i should figure all this stuff out before i decide to become a mom : P
