Baby Brother - 23 Weeks...

I'm flip-flopping my days again and will do our Weekend Update tomorrow. I have LOTS of pictures to go through. No picture this week!

Size of the Baby: Papaya – If these fruits/veggies are running together for you like they are me, that means that Baby Brother measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces. (He weighed right around 12 ounces two weeks ago when he was measured.) This is for the entire fifth month, not just this week.

Total Weight Loss/Gain: +1 pound

Maternity Clothes: I’m in them! Lots of dresses! I’ve ordered several pairs of pants since I didn’t have pants when I was pregnant last time (summer-time pregnancy!).

Gender: Another boy!

Movement: Yes! Lots and lots and lots of it. He enjoys sitting right on top of my bladder all.the.time.

Cravings: I finally feel SO MUCH better. I’m not craving anything (except lots of sugar…not good) but I’m finally eating again. Still a few aversions, but much better than before.

Symptoms: I feel a lot better than I have! I have started wearing out more easily and I am certain that the hypoglycemia that I experienced with James is back. I also have the regular pregnancy aches and pains – and a little sciatica, but not nearly as much as I had with James.

Sleep: Still ok. I’m getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but I’ve been going back to sleep. I’m having some trouble falling asleep.

What I Miss: Deli meat. And blue cheese. And yes, I know it’s okay to eat pasteurized blue cheese, but I just haven’t been able to bring myself to do it yet. (I also know that to miss blue cheese is WEIRD but my favorite restaurant salads have it on there.)

Best Moment This Week: Zoo and pumpkin patch with my little family!
