23.5 Week Survey

Week and day: 23 weeks and 4 days

Belly Button in or out: in between, slowly but surely it's getting pushed out!

Wedding rings on or off: On, although I just recently had to retire my favorite black boots as they don't zip up my calves as easily as they used too... :(

Food cravings: Don't really notice anything out of the ordinary, maybe craving salty things a bit more than usual

Food aversions: none

Nausea: none - I really feel like my normal self, besides a little extra around my belly

Energy level: energy level is SO much better than the first trimester, but I definitely can't "party" like I used to, if I stay up much past 10pm I'm a little cranky (just ask Ben)

Weight gain: About 22lbs - just as last time, still trying to watch this closely! I gained a lot in the beginning, and it slowed during the second trimester, but trying to put the weight on as slow as possible!

Mood: I think pretty normal, but I just asked Ben this and he said "generally pissed"... hahahaha... I hope he's kidding

Maternity clothes: Oh yeah, I'm all maternity clothes now. Fortunately I can still wear some of my cardigans - but other than that, I'm pretty much wearing all maternity clothes.

Size of baby: Almost an ear of corn! A foot long and just over a pound.

Changes of baby: Brain and taste buds developing, lungs develop respiratory "branches"

Next appointment: Tomorrow, just a routine check up (baby's heart beat, my blood pressure, weight, etc.)

Other: Strangers are beginning to congratulate me and ask about the pregnancy - I like it, but it's funny, I never would have walked up to someone and asked about their pregnancy unless they were 9 months pregnant, rubbing their belly and looked obviously pregnant. But maybe I'm just overly cautious!
