Week 23 of Pregnancy

posted in: Family | 2

Hello all! It’s time for a pregnancy update! The weeks are going by fast now! Last week I shared how week 22 went. Today I’m going to share about how week 23 of pregnancy went!

Week 23

How I feel – I’ve been sleeping much better this week and that has allowed me to recover from the cold and feel much better!! However, for most of this week I’ve had minor acid reflux – meaning I constantly feel like I have acid (or a piece of apple) stuck at the bottom of my throat. Also, I’ve been incredibly nauseated in the evenings.

Waddling? – It’s still just a slight waddle.working on crib

Total weight gain/loss? – Didn’t gain anything this week, so still at a 13 pound gain overall.

Sleep – Yay – sleep has been much better!! I even slept for 10 hours one night!

Wedding ring on or off? – Still on.

Cravings – No cravings this week. Too sick to enjoy food for the most part. The night I had the fever I asked for ice cream, but my husband suggested I just finish my meal which I had put aside and forgotten. So, I finished my spaghetti instead.

Best moment last week? – Putting together our crib!! Thanks to my mother-in-law finding this great deal and contributing we were able to get a 4-in-1 convertible crib!! 🙂 It was new, never opened from the box and was missing once piece, but we called the company and they are shipping it to us – no questions asked!!

I also was able to see Baby girl kick this week!! I can’t wait until Matt, or someone else is around at the right time to see her kick.

What I am looking forward to – Working on putting the nursery together. Step 1 – covering the blue glider we have! Maybe….I did some research this week and it’s going to be harder than I think.

Our little “June Bug’s” Growth

We’ve been taking photos since week 6 and showing a fruit or vegetable in the picture that is the same size as our little “June Bug”. Last week: our little girl was 11 inches long (sweet potato) and 1 pound in weight (again, sweet potato). This week: 11.5 inches long and over 1 pound in weight (grapefruit).

  1. I am working on recovering a glider that I was given. Oh man! Should be working on it right now, but I am not. Yes, it is harder than I thought, but not impossible. Sometimes it is good to stretch ourselves right?!!!
