Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 23 Weeks (12/20/12)
Size of baby: 11.5 inches and about 1.2 pounds! Right now our baby is the size of a grapefruit!!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +/- 18 pounds...
Maternity Clothes: I'm definitely wearing maternity clothes! My favorite is my leggings.
Gender: BOY!!...still nameless, but we've got it narrowed down to two!!
Movement: He sleeps most of the day while I'm at work...probably because I'm moving constantly. Once I get home and put my feet up he comes alive!! I can already tell he's probably going to like a swing or rocker.
Food Cravings: Still no cravings....I do enjoy a good hamburger and french fries. :)
Food Aversion: Not really...still avoiding hummus, just in case.
What I miss: Sleeping on my back! Sean's even having to tell me to turn over....
Sleep: I'm sleeping OK, the body pillow helps some. I just have to wake up and flip off of my back pretty often. I'm also getting up at least once a night to pee.  I'm also becoming exhausted during the day again...I thought this would stop until the 3rd trimester, but obviously not.  I'm hoping a little break helps.
Symptoms: Still having back pain...guess it wasn't the cold. It usually starts in the afternoon and lasts until I go to bed...a little annoying but it's OK.
Best Moment this Week: Picking a few things out for his room!
What I am Looking Forward To: Spending some time with family!!
