23 Weeks - Pregnancy #4

Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.  

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  23 weeks 

Size of baby:  This little one is more than 11 inches long (head to toe) and weighs about the same amount as a mango. 

Total weight gain/loss:  I'm up 10 pounds total as of my last appointment a few weeks ago. 

Maternity clothes:  spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, and cute/comfy shorts

Gender:  boy :) 💙

Movement:  I feel lots of movement at night before bed, but if I'm still during the day, he lets me know he's awake :)

Sleep:  Sleep has been fine. 

What I miss: I miss holding my kids on my lap. It's just not comfortable anymore. 

Cravings:  protein shakes in the morning, cheese and crackers, fruit-filled popsicles

Symptoms:  visiting the restroom often, a little morning sickness each morning when I wake, tightness in my lower back muscles

Exercise:  walking a couple of times a week at the mall, 15-20 minutes of yoga stretches before bed 2-4 nights a week, 

Best moment this week:  Watching Jack and Ella talk to him :)
