23 Weeks Down, 17 More To Go!
22 Week Bump Board ❤
I apologize for this post being so delayed. Luckless has been swamped with orders with the coming Holiday and I made it my priority to have all their orders shipped ASAP so they would get them before Christmas.
This week's big developments: Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound, you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
How far along: 23 Weeks
Gender: Baby GIRL
Weight gain: +7 pounds. By this time with Brayden I had
already gained almost twenty pounds!
Maternity clothes: I feel like the only thing that has grown is my chest and belly.
Still no maternity clothes just lots of leggings!
Stretch marks: My old ones are starting to become a bit more apparent now on my chest.
Belly button in or out: I am almost convinced it may actually pop out with this pregnancy. Still looks like an orange navel!
Sleep: Sleep has been such a day dream. Brayden has been a handful at night waking up every hour because he just cut 4 teeth. I feel like I will never get a full nights sleep again.
Best moment this week: My best moment this week was being able to spend time with my mother and sister-in-law. I am often buried in work and don't get to do much but I worked hard so I could take a day off to have a girls day where we went shopping and watched a movie together.
Worst moment this week: I have to say that the worst moment this week was simply me being so busy and stressed. I have not had a chance to relax in so long and I can't wait to munch down on some food and spend time with family this coming week. Matts Birthday is also December 23rd!
Miss anything: SLEEP. I am so tired!
Movement: Elena moves all the time she's such a wiggle worm. She's starting to get so strong that her movements are almost visible through my clothes.
Cravings: Cantaloupe and yogurt has been my go to meal all week. I have already ate two whole cantaloupes.
Queasy or sick: I still struggle in the car with sickness and if I eat certain things but mostly its just migraines.
Looking forward to: I am looking forward to feeling her hiccups and seeing her sweet face at 34 weeks.❤
