|23 W 6 D|
AJ and I worked a lot on the office to clear it out for Aidan's room. In fact, it now just needs to be vacuumed, rug steam cleaned, walls painted, and furniture bought and/or assembled. It was a huge effort to clean out the room this week, I am amazed we were able to do so much
this week! Pictures posted at the end of the blog.
How far along:23 weeks 6 days
How big is baby?: According to the APP, I'm Expecting: Started the Week 23 as the size of a Pomegranate and is about to be a Grapefruit.
Weight gain?: 1 this week, 20 total.
Stretch marks?: None so far. Linea nigra has shown back up.
Maternity clothes?: Maybe I should delete this question? The only non maternity clothes I wear are pajamas and bathing suits.
Sleep?: Stomach sleeping continues, and I am still sleeping well. No charley horses waking me up this week either...just dogs.
Best moment?: We were told that we would close on our Construction loan next Friday. The paperwork is supposed to be finalized Tuesday, so AJ requested an early Friday morning closing.
Also, I greatly enjoyed helping my mom with my sister's baby shower! I made her a diaper cake, too! My brother and his wife made an awesome baby stroller out of a watermelon. My parents hosted the shower at their house, and we couldn't have asked for better weather! It was sunny, but not too hot.
Worst moment?: Aidan fell out of his chair at daycare and busted the inside of his lip/gum area. He kept poking his finger at it, and the bleeding wouldn't stop. Thankfully, he let me put pressure and ice on it while watching Elmo.
Food cravings?: ICE CREAM - chocolate icec ream and chocolate milkshakes
Symptoms?: Bloody noses continue, but the Charley Horses stopped - it helps I drank more milk.
Exercise?: I continued to walk - 9+ miles this week. I lifted weights twice...still taking it easy.
Movement?: Lot of movement, I can always count on Owen moving around as I lay down for bed.
Belly button?: Partial outie and somewhat flat.
What I miss?: Being able to easily stand up! Getting off the couch or floor takes effort now. Like I need to say ummmpf as I get up to help. I think it helps...
Labor signs?:Not yet
TMI: Since I am walking a lot more and have pants with the full belly panel, I can't wear them more than one day because I sweat so bad. :/ I do wear my low waist pants with no panel, but I sneeze and well, pee myself, thus I can only wear them once, too. More laundry for me.
What I'm looking forward to?:I am attending another baby shower for my sister down in Charleston! Hopefully we will have some good weather, too.
