Our Five Ring Circus: 23 Weeks

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!

: 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!

We didn't find out!

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!

23 Week Picture:


Lexie wanted to take a belly picture, too. Haha!


I can't forget my sweet boy!
