23 weeks

*I know this is late, but we've been out of town at a funeral so... Sorry!
How Far Along? 23 weeks. Hello 6 months!

Total Weight Gained/Loss? my scale at work says I'm up a total of 6 from my original weight. Not counting the ones I lost at the beginning anymore.

Maternity Clothes: I am no longer in love with my maternity jeans. I don't get how with modern technology the way it is, we still can't design maternity jeans that will stay up. Good thing I live in scrubs and workout wear.

Sleep? I'm sleeping ok, but man my back sure does hurt every morning... And the dreams. They never stop. They are so vivid and they just keep going!!

Best Moment of the Week? Her movement still. I love it.

Movement- all the time. Little inconvenient when she finds your bladder during a funeral. Not so fun.

Food Craving- anything. I am starving!! Where did this appetite come from?! I sure hope it doesn't stick around forever!!

Food aversions- Still not liking meat. Oh.. or seafood. Blech.

Morning sickness?- I actually feel really great right now.. I just still have no energy. I'm thinking maybe it's from my blood thinner use. I'm going to talk to my doc about this next visit.

Gender- Baby Girl =)

Labor Signs- none.

Belly Button- oh so shallow...

What I miss- I miss being small. I know that makes no sense, but I'm really uncomfortable with this belly. Sometimes I get out of breath doing the littlest thing or my stomach muscles hurt so bad it hurts to breathe. I know my belly is not that big, but it is in my way. I already feel thrown off, my balance is off, and my back hurts constantly. I just miss being able to do simple things, like get up from the couch on my own!!

What I'm looking forward to- I love all this honestly. Yes, I'm ridiculously uncomfortable, but I love watching my belly grow and knowing she's growing away in there...

Weekly Wisdom- People will violate your personal space. Normally, this would throw me into a panic attack, but I'm trying to be ok with it. I like that Mr. Perfect is right there to be with me because he knows how I get. And they will always have an opinion. I get a lot of "you sure you're eating enough, you're still so small" and "that baby needs more food". Just smile and nod. I know she's healthy. That's all that matters..

Milestones- We have started the registry process!! And it is exhausting.

Wow...we are going through the EXACT same things...down to the vivid dreams and personal space issues and raging appetites and back pains. Oh my!

I set up a basic registry at Target. You can take a look at it if you need ideas. I did a lot of research into brands, etc.

6 lbs? That's all? I am up 8. And, I am clumsy and drained of energy too!

How did I miss this post the other day??? I guess I have been too busy! :)

You totally have to come over and let me monogram for you...once I get pretty good at it that is! That baby girl is going to have a monogram on everything! I really want to try to learn how to make pillowcase dresses and other cute childrens clothes too! My SIL is having a little girl in April and she will have a 9 yr. old and 4 yr. old sisters! How cute would it be to make them matching outfits! We need to do lunch soon before your life changes forever with that little one! :)
