Happy Monday Ya'll (I always wanted a Southern accent! ;)) I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was a very busy weekend around our house, and I have pictures to share, but that'll have to wait. I just wanted to post my weekly update ON TIME this week! :)
How far along: 23 weeks
Symptoms: tired...I have a feeling that this is just how my pregnancy is going to be. I mean I need to give myself some credit, I work full-time, I have a 7 year old and a 3 year old to take care (and hubby steps up A LOT!) and I'm older now! ;)
Weight gain/loss: So yes, I went to my OB appt last Wednesday I have officially gained 9 lbs! This is 100% in the normal range for someone who started their pregnancy "overweight" according to the BMI scare, so I'm fine with it, it was just the "jump" that I didn't like! :) My doctor assured me all is well, but still! :)
Gender: Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!
Maternity clothes? for the most part, just for comfort sake. I could squeeze into my pre-prego maternity pants, but why? ;)
Sleep: It could be better! :) I get up at least 2 times a night to pee. I try to limit my water intake after a certain time, but I can't help it. If I'm thirsty, I'm thirsty! :)
Food cravings/aversions: I really want sushi (cooked, of course! Prego or not, I only eat cooked sushi! :)) and steamed crabs. Maryland is known for their steamed crabs and this time of year it's just a necessity!
Movement? a lot! It was funny the other day the kids were bickering and the baby was moving like crazy! To think that he/she will be involved one day brings a smile to my face! :)
What I miss? A FULL nights sleep
Best moment(s) this week: after an emergency trip to Labor and Delivery on Thursday, the best moment was definitely finding out that everything was fine with Baby G! It was a very scary few hours!
What I'm looking forward to: our mini-vacay at the end of the month. Since we are moving next month and you know, having a baby ;) we aren't taking a week long beach trip this year. So instead we are heading down for a few days just to enjoy the beach, eats lots of yummy food AND of course, get our annual Old Time Photo! :)
Next appointment: June 12th...and my glucose test! Yippy! ;)
And here is my 23 week bump! :) (and a very dirty mirror! ;)
