23 Weeks

DATE: April 11, 2011

How far along:
23 weeks!

Total Weight Gained:
All loss so far.

How big is baby? Nugget is over 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound.

How baby is growing: Blood vessels in Nugget's lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that his/her increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing him/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 the baby when he/she hears them outside the womb. babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing my regular clothes.

Sleep: I'm sleeping well, other than the fact that I have to pee more frequently.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Feeling my sweet pea hit, kick, and flip around!

Movement
: Nugget is constantly moving!

Food Cravings: No cravings yet.

Food Aversions:
A long list that constantly changes!

Morning Sickness:
I'm 23 weeks and still taking Zofran everyday. That about sums it up!

Gender:
We didn't find out!

Symptoms:
Strong and frequent Braxton Hick's contractions (especially in the evening), nausea morning to night, gagging, vomiting, headaches, mood swings, constipation, and breakouts.

Exercise: Getting moderate exercise 4-5 days a week on the treadmill. I keep up with it, because it makes me feel better, despite the all day sickness. I also have a bigger appetite on the days I get exercise.

What I miss:
Living my life without feeling like I have a constant stomach virus.

What I'm looking forward to:
Feeling normal again!
