23 weeks pregnant with baby number 2

How Far Along: 23 Weeks 1 day!

Size of baby: ear of corn- 8.5 inches and 1.5 lbs

Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs i think, official weigh in will be friday at the doctor's office

Maternity Clothes: this pregnancy is so differernt from my first.  Im still wearing all my non maternnity jeans some with a belly band some just under the belly.  otherwise ive been wearing leggings and tunics or dresses.

Gender: another boy

Movement: lots of movement.  rolling and turning over and some sharp jabs that are kicks or punches im sure  today was the first day i really watched movement happening from the outside and it never gets old.

Sleep: . well after a week in pittsburgh with a toddler who would not stay in the pack in play all night I was happy for my first night back at home in my bed.  too bad toddler woke up at the crack of dawn and i tossed and turned all night.  sleep is one of  those things you take for granted when you aren't pregnant. i miss a good nights sleep!

What I miss: being able to eat lunch meat whenever i wanted and not warmed up. other than that life is pretty much the same.

Cravings: red meat, i have a major iron deficiency this pregnancy and have been taking a supplement but red meat still sounds so good.  i had a medium done hamburger and i think my family almost had a heart attack. they have never seen me eat meat that wasn't well done pretty much ever.  it tasted so good.

Symptoms: kicking of course and heartburn.  again totally different pregnancy this time.  i never had heart burn too bad last time. this time around the strangest things have me breathing fire.
