23 weeks

How far along?  23 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: When I first found out I was pregnant I lost 7 pounds in the first trimester. I have finally gained back all of that plus 3 pounds. That would make a total of 10 pounds. By this time in my pregnancy I am feeling good about this weight gain. I feel that I have gained all the weight in my belly…grow baby grow!
Maternity clothes: My wardrobe is almost all maternity clothes. I have tried to wear some t-shirts that I have pre-baby but they don’t completely cover my baby bump.
Sleep: Sleep is getting more and more uncomfortable but I feel that I am getting enough sleep for me and the baby.
Best moment this week: We set the crib up and got it all put together and it looks so nice. I am now waiting for buy buy baby to send us a new dresser. They one that I picked up weeks ago, one of the legs were broken. It is not fixable so they are sending me a new one. I also ordered a two dark grey pine tree decals for his wall and a faux gold antler coat holder. Best moments are just getting ready for his room and seeing it all come together!
Miss anything? Not really missing anything.
Movement: Tons of moment, mostly at night!
Food cravings: Nothing special, olives, orange juice, cheetos….lol!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: I have a numbness of the right lower lateral thigh. I can feel pain but it just feels numbness. I can literally draw a circle around the area. Its about the size of my fist. I think the baby is just pressing on some nerves causing this. I am not too worried about it.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I would say happy, Rick and I are traveling to Yellowstone National Park this Saturday June 4th to the 11th 2016. My family has rented a home in Montana for the week and are going to drive to Yellowstone and see the sights of the park. Neither Rick nor I have ever been there. I am very excited to go. I want to see Old Faithful geyser and other hot springs in the area. I also want to go on a few hikes. I know that I am pregnant and that it might be more difficult to do certain hikes but we will see. I will do what I can.
Looking forward to: My family trip to Yellowstone National Park/Montana.
Days to go: 117 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a large mango. His blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby’s increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing him for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now such as dog barking or vacuum cleaner will barley faze him when she hears them outside the womb. You can feel him moving and maybe even see him dancing under your clothes.
