23w5d and going strong!

It honestly seems as though I get busier when I am on vacation... Things have been hectic! When it's not one thing, it's another. I am actually sitting in a rehearsal now! Crazy... But, anyway, I have some updates! :) Here we go:

How far along: 23w5d!!

Total weight change: +18 total, based on Doctor's office scale. My thoughts? YIKES!!! Dr. C, however, is very happy with my progress. I'll go with that. ;)

Maternity clothes: The only thing "maternity" I have purchased has been a belly band, which I haven't used in a while, along with some fold over maternity yoga pants that I love. Still, I feel most comfortable in leggings, stretchy pants and dresses.

Stretch Marks: Yes, unfortunately :( I feel as if I am going to be a zebra by the time this is over... But, I guess us Mommies have to earn our stripes somehow ;) I'll get over it...

Movement: This has definitely become a pretty regular thing, and I am loving it. He's a pretty active little guy :) Daddy hasn't felt him yet, but he is being felt from the outside more and more these days.

Sleep: It has it's moments... I have to get up and use the restroom between two to three times a night, but I am getting a lot of sleep thanks to being on vacation, so that's definitely a plus :)

Best Moment This Past Week: The increased movement is definitely awesome. We also had another ultrasound for specific anatomy things which was nice. Also, my Dr. is very happy with how things are going and told me to continue doing whatever I am, do that made me happy :)

Most Difficult Moment This Past Week: Family issues with a great-uncle who is not doing well, and my mom stressing me out about gaining weight since I started out so "big" as she says. I know she is just concerned, but stressing me out when things are going well doesn't help.

Belly Button In or Out: In. Not as deep as before, but in. :)

Cravings/Aversions: McDonald's Cheeseburgers (I know... Bad) and for some reason I really wanted fettuccine from Olive Garden. Other than that, nothing major.

Symptoms: A little back pain, and pain in my tailbone, along with some wicked heartburn EVERY night. That's about it, I think... Oh, did I mention some memory loss? LoL!!

Here is a picture of our little man, sucking his thumb, from our last US

Until next time :)

Thanks :) I know! I am so excited!!!! They even gave me a nice "Mommy" packet at the Dr. which has hospital pre-registration and a bunch of stuff in there... Makes it feel so real (as if him moving all over doesn't already). I am elated :)

Lil' Diva Bud's photo at the bottom of your blog melted my heart. He's precious, and I'm SO excited for you. I totally agree with feeling comfortable in leggings. I wore mine last weekend and thought to myself- Can I wear these every day? :)

Thanks so much, Bossy! We are so excited :)

Leggings, stretchy pants and the occasional elastic waist linen pant are my go-to clothes for now :)
