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.
