Baby #2 Bumpdate: 23 Weeks

One benefit of looking like you are in your third trimester already is being able to freely park in the expectant mother spot at the grocery store :) I think I waitied forever to park there with Cambry. But this time around I am pulling right in.

How Far Along:  23 Weeks

Baby's Size:  Large Mango (I thought we had passed mango...)

Maternity Clothes: Yes mostly, and some regular mixed in too. Lately I have been wearing dresses. I feel a little over dressed when I am just going to the grocery store, library, etc, but dresses are just so much more comfortable than having something tight around the belly.

Movement: Getting stronger and sometimes I can even see it from the outside.

Sleep: Great. At least one bathroom trip a night though. It also seems like I have so many dreams each night.

Symptoms: The usual - a bit tired and sluggish and at times a little nauseous. Also sometimes I feel like I might be having the beginnig of Braxton Hicks. They aren't the full on super tight/hard belly kind I got with Cambry, these are a little more crampy feeling. But I think as I get further along they will turn into the full on Braxton Hicks.

Food Aversions/Cravings: Nothing really this week.

Best Moment this Week: Seeing family in Waco for Fathers Day and Birthdays.

What I miss: Having energy, being able to maneuver easily.

What I am Looking Forward to: Being able to start on the nursery. We still need to clear out the room. Also I need to get the bedding ordered.

Goals: Well I haven't touched Cambry's baby book. So much for last week's goal! That goal is now on hold. This week's goal is to work on busy bag stuff. Also to order a crib. (Actually I typed this out yesterday and last night I ordered a crib, yay!)
