Baby Bump: 23 week update!
Weight gain: 15+ lbs! Still haven't weighed myself...
Baby's sex: Another Team PINK!
Baby's name: We have a name that we both love but are trying to make sure it's the best one. :) We actually had a name compete with our favorite name for a second but then we are back to our favorite again. Once it's solid, we'll announce or we might just wait until delivery...I'm not good at keeping things like that secret so we'll see.
Sleep: I've manage to make it to bed early a couple times, which has really helped. I've also been walking the pups in the morning and I think that has been helping me sleep more sound when I do fall asleep. I'm still tired but not nearly as tired as I had been. YAY!
Movements: This baby likes to move a lot! I love it! The little kicks, punches, and rolls are so fun to feel! It's also been great to share her movement with more people! Grandpa got to feel her before he left!
Labor Signs: None.
Maternity Clothes: Same as last week...all maternity with some non-maternity tanks thrown in. Been sporting the sweatpants a lot lately because I just am so uncomfortable if I don't!
Big Sister Carmen: She loves to give the baby big squeezey hugs before bed!
This past week: My belly is growing at a very fast rate! I can tell I've reached that stage in pregnancy when my belly is just going to grow in leaps and bounds! Several people have mentioned that they felt like I just popped one day...umm..your telling me? I've had more lovely pregnancy symptoms lately and when I called the nurse she assured me that it's all normal. She reminded me that every pregnancy is different and while I was able to walk every day during Carmen's that I may need to slow my walking down to a slow walk for less than 30 mins a day with this one. I've had a lot more aches and pains recently and I know that I just need to rest my body. I forget that even at rest my body is doing more than normal.
Next Doctor's Visit: Next apt is Dec 18th. I had to reschedule this because of a training at work...it went from seeing one of the other OBs to seeing my least favorite again. Please please PLEASE start praying now that I go into labor and deliver when my ABSOLUTE favorite doctor, Dr. T is on call! She delivered Carmen and I really really really hope she delivers this next baby too. She is the most like a midwife you will get in an OB and she was so great at supporting my birth plan and even questioning me when I decided to change it! She is down as my primary so if for some reason I have to be induced this time than they would schedule on a day with her. Also pray I don't have to be induced!! Thank you in advance for those praying!! :)
Thanks for reading another baby bump update!!
