How far along: 23 weeks
Total weight gain: +5 (officially, probably more)
Baby is the size of a: Papaya
Maternity clothes: Yes
Stretch marks: Not yet
Sleep: So, so. My dog has been licking herself and dreaming almost every night this week and I am ready to take her smelly behind straight to the pound!
Best moment of this week: The weather was pretty great, so being able to get outside and get some Vitamin D was REALLY nice! Plus, playing outside tires the boys out!
Movement: A little more every week.
Food cravings: Chai tea from Starbucks, bagels, peanut butter
Anything making you queasy or sick: my dogs breath
Aches or pains: My sciatica is starting to get to me, which usually happens every pregnancy (at least in my case)… so it was expected. Emotional "pain," some people just are not good people to keep in your life, and I like to call these people Borderline Personality Disorder people… because, well, they act like it!
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Labor signs: No. But a lot of braxton hicks in the last two weeks. I think that is because the weather has been nicer and I have been out and about much more, so I need to remember to up my water intake!
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
What are you dreaming about: I had a good dream last night, but then as I type this I cannot, for the life of me, remember what it was!
Happy or moody most of the time: This week pretty moody. I despise organized religion (and the crazy people that try to instill their values on others), and I should know better to put anything on Facebook about it, because heaven forbid anyone can shut up about their own values (post it on your own page, if you so desire)… hating group text messages (going to throw my phone into a wall), and my dog waking me up a lot - so being tired above all! Also, I went to a park in Highlands Ranch and my boys each brought a ball. Well, some crazy bee-yatch let her child take Luke's ball (we usually allow sharing on the playground), and then she left with it!
Looking forward to: Buying a new mirror to go above our bed, because the one that was there was moved into the nursery because it was just too perfect not to be in there. I also still need to get curtains I like and I am trying to decide on one other piece of decor on a small wall in her room!
I love girly things for cute little vignettes! I can't wait to put a cute black and white picture of our baby in this frame!
