23 Weeks Pregnant
Size: The baby is the size of a mango and is weighing in at one whole pound!!!
Weight: I was jumping for joy when the doctor weighed me and I gained a whopping 6lbs!!!! I was waiting for a big jump and this was it. I am positive weeks from now I won't be as thrilled about gaining weight but right now I am quite proud, and the Dr. was quite pleased.This means I am up 11lbs. Pretty average I think. I swear I am gaining all my weight in my boobs. I am ready for them to stop growing, they seem to grow weekly with the belly. I can't even imagine how huge my utters will be when the milk comes in... sigh. Oh and no one told me how dark your nipples get. OMG mine are nearly black!!
Symptoms: Nothing new here. I am loving this stage in pregnancy as I am noticeably pregnant and not just tubby. I have all of the energy I had before. Except I can walk miles on the beach but if I am walking up a hill, I am gasping for breathe.
The baby is kicking soooo much now. I got to visually see a kick a couple of days ago and it was quite freakish.
Stretch Marks: Just a couple on my hips but I am sure I had them before. I also just noticed yesterday my Linea Nigra appear. That's that dark line that grows from your pubic area to your belly button. It's very faint and hasn't made it all the way to my belly button yet. I wonder if my "sunning" my belly made it appear more because I noticed it the day after.
Cravings: Fruit & Chocolate.
How do you like my new spring/summer dress? I bought two maxi dresses at Winners the other day and I plan on buying more. Sooo comfy. I will be living in them all summer long.
If you haven't noticed I put a little poll on the top right side. Please vote girl or boy. I would love to know what your guesses are :)
