23 Weeks

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

My baby bump at 23 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: Gained one more pound this week!  That puts me back to being down only 4 lbs.  I feel like I am finally going in the right direction!

Movement:  Cullen moves all the time for me, especially early in the morning and later at night. I get to feel him kick all the time!  But, every time anyone else touches my belly, he stops moving.  Corey has only felt him twice.  Silly little Cullen, your grandmothers are ready to feel you move too!

Boy or Girl? Boy!!!

Food Cravings: We had our first late night run to get something to satisfy a craving.  Thursday afternoon, I all of a sudden really wanted a KFC biscuit.  Random.  I was able to hold off until after our hospital orientation that night, but Corey and I went through the KFC drive through on our way home to get two biscuits and a large side of mashed potatoes.  Not healthy at all, but it was delicious after dreaming about it all evening!

How I'm Feeling: Still pretty good.  Just the same ol' hip and and back pain.  Nothing I can't handle.  I think the nesting bug has hit as well.  We have gotten so much done at our house in the past week, and I haven't dreaded it.

Size of Baby: Papaya (8 in, 1.2 lbs)  

Baby's Development:  This week marks the beginning of some serious weight gain.  Baby's weight in the next four weeks alone should double.  We have heard baby's heartbeat through a doppler several times, but by now we could also hear it through a standard stethoscope!

Best Part of this Week: Getting the house cleaned up and organized.  We have the nursery cleaned out, have put in our paint order, and should be able to start decorating soon!  It feels good to be working on preparing for this little one.

What I'm Looking Forward To: I am excited about all the things we have to do to get ready for Cullen's arrival!
