23wks-1 23wks-2

How Far Along: 23 weeks

Total Weight Gained: 5 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Still rocking my belly band but I could use some maternity jeans. – I would rather spend money on baby girl though!

Sleep: I slept good this week, but I always wake up at 5!

Best Moment of the Week: I think we finally decided on a name!  

Food Cravings: Raspberries     

Food Aversions: Eggs.

Belly button/stretch marks: The belly button is getting more shallow by the day. Still no stretch marks.

Symptoms: Ligament pain. Back pain. Incessant bitching complaining. Acne. Bleeding gums. You know all the fun stuff.

John Paul’s pregnancy symptoms – I know this is selfish but it really pisses me off when I complain about being pregnant and Bert says “You wanted to have a baby!” – umm…yes I did. However, now I want to complain about it. Give me some sympathy.

Movement: All the time.

Gender: Girl.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. Alcohol. I could really use a nice glass of wine to take the edge off!

What I'm looking forward to: Sharing the name with everyone!

Weekly Wisdom: Relax when you can. I obsess about keeping the house clean and then realize that I really don’t care and I take a nap! It’s so worth it!!

Milestones: 17 weeks left – hopefully less – but I don’t want to jinx myself!
