How far along? 23 weeks
Size of baby: A little over a pound and 11.4 inches. About the size of a pomegranade
Weight gain: 10-11 pounds
Maternity clothes: No but I need to invest. As you can tell, I am wearing the same shirt I wore a couple weeks ago (below is a comparison). All my shirts and tanks are getting too tight and too short. T-shirts are no longer comfortable because their so tight.
Stretch marks: Nope.
Sleep: Not good earlier this week because I didn't think I was allowed to take allergy medicine but after calling the doctor on Tuesday, I learned I could and I have been sleeping much better. Besides the waking to go to the bathroom of course. And a dog who gets extra cuddly when it's thundering (twice this week now).
Symptoms: Couple headaches and a tiny bit of heartburn. Atleast that's what I think it was. I have never had heartburn but after explaining my sypmtoms to Derek who takes tums like their candy, I am pretty sure that's what it was.
Best moment this week: Getting stuff in the mail for her. She got 2 things in 1 day the other day. That's more then I ever get!
Movement: Oh yeah. Mostly in the morning or at night. Basically, when I am laying still. Sometimes I poke at her and tell her to wake up just so I can feel her :)
Food cravings: Still breakfast foods and candy. I've been doing pretty good with meat lately. Just has to be grounded up. No juicy steak or grilled chicken for me. Vomit.
Gender: GIRL!!!! Collins Cate Lorson
What I miss: Being able to easily get up and turn over in bed. It's getting harder and harder to bend over and get up.
Milestones: She is finally a pound! The books say she is really going to start packing on weight now so that makes me happy. Bring on the fat rolls. On her, not me.
