23 weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Baby is the size of a pomegranate.

Due Date: May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Down a lb this week, so up a total of 7lbs.

Symptoms: Heartburn, belly, and getting bigger up top as well.

Cravings: Milk, pickles, sushi, guacamole, hamburgers, and fruit (somebody get me a peach, please).

Aversions: Nothing major.

Sleep: While hubby has been on rotation, I've been sleeping with four pillows. One for my head, one for my knees, one for up against the belly, and one up against my back. Pretty sure hubby won't be a fan when he gets home, but it's helped me sleep a lot better!

I am loving: Wearing all my new maternity clothes I got for Christmas, feeling more confident about the idea of using cloth diapers.

I miss: raw sushi (tuna in particular), a good Bloody Mary, and coffee

I am looking forward to: Working on the nursery.

I'm spazzing about: Her name- we're not 100% sure on Lydia and hubby and I don't agree on any other names.

Best thing about this week: Sunday night was the first night I felt her in two places at once- she must have been kicking and punching at the same time:)

Milestones: See above.

Movement: Lots of movement- I love seeing my whole belly move, and there are times I can feel her roll over, not just kick or punch.

It's a...: GIRL!!!!

  1. You have time on the name thing---don't worry too much about it. If you don't 'announce' what you think you will name her, and keep it a secret, maybe that would take some pressure off? I do love 'Lydia' though---but if you are second-guessing now, maybe it's not the right one.

    time for a belly pic!!
