Pregnancy #2 Update 23 Weeks

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

How far along? 23 weeks (as of Saturday) Wahoo I'm more than halfway there!
Total weight gain:  I think a little over 3 pounds. I gain most of my weight in the 3rd trimester, so I'm sure I will be seeing more of a bump soon. ;) Although, I am already showing more with this pregnancy and I LOVE IT!  
Maternity clothes? No
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: My brain won't shut down at night so sleep has been rough, but it's my own fault.
Best moment this week: Feeling baby boy kick more and more!
Miss anything? I miss my heartburn/acid reflux not being quite so bad.
Movement:  Yep! He likes to kick and roll around in there. :) 
Food cravings:  Salads, chocolate, and Diet Coke 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Same as usual, certain foods. I have been taking a probiotic faithfully though and that seems to help. I also try not to eat much dairy and that helps.  
Gender: BOY! 
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks are increasing, some pelvic floor pain, and I get sick in the shower. :( This happened with Rosalie too, so I guess for me it is "normal". I just get nauseous all of a sudden and have to sit down. My showers aren't super hot, so I guess I'll just be careful. :)
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or moody most of the time: This question always makes me laugh when I read it and I never know how to answer it ha! Yes I am very happy and feel so blessed, but I'm not going to pretend like I'm never moody either, so I'll just say both. ;)
Looking forward to:  Rosalie's 2nd Birthday and our next ultrasound of baby boy!
Exercise:  With this pregnancy I have been so blessed to feel great when exercising! I need those endorphins, so it is such a blessing! I will probably blog more about exercise and what works for me. And no I don't think I'm an expert, but I am pregnant and I'd like to share what I enjoy doing for any of those who are interested. :)
