23 weeks!

January 17, 2011


And from some other angles.  It had been raining all day Sunday (the day I take my picture) so I'm pretty much a mess!  Also, if my hands weren't on my hips I don't think you would have seen the belly so much...and yes, my pants are unbuttoned!


I look exactly the same from the back as I did before I got pregnant.  This isn't so much for your "viewing" pleasure...just documenting.


How far along? 23 weeks (only 17 to go...crazy!)

Baby size:  Over 11 inches and over 1 pound (Mango)

Total weight gain/loss:  At my 21 week appointment I had gained 2 pounds. That puts me at +1 above my pre pregnancy weight.  But if the baby now weighs more than a pound does that cancel out my gaining?  I hope not...I was so proud that I actually gained!  (Now, that I have my acid reflux under control.  I feel like such an idiot for not knowing what it was but I had never had anything like it pre pregnancy)

Maternity clothes?  Mostly just the BeBand

Sleep:  I am still sleeping really well when she's not dancing around while I'm trying to get some shut eye!

Best moment this week:  Her kicking my book while I was trying to read and seeing the book actually move because of her kicks!  Also, I was listening to Ryan Adams (When the Stars Go Blue) and she was going crazy...pretty funny.

Movement:  She is still moving like crazy and I feel her all over the place.  During the day she stays really low but at night she moves up as high as she can get.  Jonathan and I call it her migration!  When I lay down at night I can actually feel her head moving around...feels like a giant (really hard) orange right under my skin.  Also, my niece is 9 months old and when I sit down and hold her to feed her a bottle Georgia kicks like crazy...kind of like she is saying, "Get her off of me!"

Food cravings:  None really...I still dislike chicken (even though I LOVED it before I got pregnant)

What I miss:  Nothing I guess...maybe my pants not sliding down all day?

What I am looking forward to:  My next appointment isn't until Feb. 1st...so I guess that. I'm trying to enjoy each day before it's all over.

Milestones:  She's starting to pick up on other sounds besides my voice.  Example:  She probably knows Perry's bark by now!  Funny!

Pregnancy Symptoms:  Out of breath sometimes...other than that life is pretty great right now :)

Stretch Marks:  Not one!

Belly button:  Still a full on innie!  (although I'm pretty sure I have the world's deepest belly button so I'm pretty interested to see what it's going to look like at 9 months)

Your belly is looking so cute! That's cute that she is picking up other noises... does she recognize your hubby's voice when he talks to her? (as in she kicks, moves, etc?).
And yeah let me know about the pics... is your e-mail listed on here? I don't post mine since it's not a "special" blog one, and it includes my last name. =P But we can e-mail about it instead of comment back-n-forth.. hah!

I love reading your weekly posts! I thought it was funny b/c I was like you loved chicken prior to pregnancy, but during pregnancy it just grossed me out! And even now I have to be in the mood for it and I like pork chops best!! You are a cute pregnant lady and are glowing!! Can't wait to meet Miss Georgia!
