23 Weeks

How Far Along: 23 Weeks.

Size of Baby: Baby is the size of a grapfruit! She is almost a foot long too.

Weight Gain: Still about 7 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Wearing some maternity shirts. Still mostly sundresses are my favorite/ most comfortable thing to wear.

Gender: So excited we are having a little girl!

Movement: Feeling so much movement almost every night. Really whenever I am sitting still I can feel her move. Clarke has felt her move some too!

Sleep: Sleeping okay, but I can tell it's starting to get harder. I don't know if I am sleeping as well as I was because I seem more tired than before. (But I think doing summer school has a lot to do with that!)

Symptoms: Just feeling really tired after work.

Food Cravings: McDonald's vanilla icecream cones. I make Clarke take me through the drive through all the time to get them now! Good thing they are only $1!

What I Miss: Not being ablt to lift. Working with preschoolers with special needs is hard when you can't pick them up at all.

What I’m Looking Forward To: Putting the nursery together. We finally got the ceiling fan up (more about that in another post) and I can't wait to paint it!

Best Moment This Week: This really has nothing to do with pregnancy, but I started working summer school this last week. It's been hard adjusting to getting up so early, but I have loved seeing a lot of my students there. Also, I've gotten to see old students from my first year who have moved to different schools. It's been fun to give them hugs!

You look great!

Movement is the best! When she gets bigger you will be able to see her move around in there and it's the coolest thing ever! Landon used to moon us or stick his knees out and it was so fun! I miss that a lot!

I wanted McDs vanilla cone in the first trimester a few times :) So delicious - makes me want one now!
Our nursery furniture is coming in this week and we're SO excited about getting the room together too!
