How far along: 23 weeks
Baby Size: a papaya
Maternity clothes: Not yet...but definitely soon!!!!
Stretch marks: Still none (thank goodness!)...and still slathering on the Burts Bees Mama Belly Butter!
Sleep: Not great...but not horrible either. I'm still waking up a lot throughout the night, tossing and turning and trying to get comfortable.
Gender: lil' boy
Movement: Definitely feeling him more and more (and yes, I still think it's weird!)
Looking forward to: a 3 day weekend with the hubs <3 and getting A LOT done this weekend!!
Food cravings: I definitely want to eat as much fruit as possible - cherries, grapes, watermelon, strawberries...you name it, I want it!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really. I've learned to not stuff myself like I normally do (hey I LOVE food...don't judge ha-ha) and that's helping tremendously.
Labor Signs: Nope, as it should be still.
What I miss: Still missing a good glass of wine and having abs/a waist.
Symptoms: The same - calves cramping every once in a while, tightness/stretching in the lower belly area, and still needing to pee all the time!! I've also started to notice my back hurting just a little bit but nothing major. Oh, and a little bit of a runny nose/congestion...which I hear is pretty common during pregnancy - Oh joy!
Nursery: Nothing new in this department.
Belly Button in or out? In and still have my belly button ring in.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Workouts: Still able to keep up with my regular workout routine. My running has gotten even slower, though, that's for sure.
Things that suck: The fact that running isn't as easy as it used to be. But I gotta stay positive and just be grateful I'm still running. Oh, and the belly getting bigger and bigger...I know it HAS TO but I'm really not a fan of it (in case you haven't noticed...I'm not one of those 'I love being pregnant' women...sorry but I'm just not.)
Things that don't suck: Still enjoying the fact that 'the girls' are getting bigger. I mean I've been small chested my whole life...always wishing for a boob job...so this part of pregnancy is just the cat's pajamas if you ask me :)
