Finally! (Last week’s) 23 week update!
|Last week was a rough week, and it definitely shows in this photo…tired and hurting…|
How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 4 lbs.
Yep. But still managing to utilize my existing wardrobe, which I didn’t think would be possible!
Still none from the bean. But I know additions to my already impressive
collection are soon to come. I’m dousing myself in coconut oil daily.
Sleep? Extremely uncomfortable thanks to this back/hip/sciatic pain I’ve had for over a week now.
Best moment last week? Moments I wasn’t in pain, which were basically only while sitting completely still…on a heating pad.
Movement? Feeling her more frequently now! And I can now watch my belly dance on the outside when she kicks.
Food cravings? Still chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, which I had (finally) on Saturday and it was delicious! Yesterday I had cravings of Cinnabon, Grilled Cheese and Cheeseburgers within ten minutes of each other…I had none
Symptoms? This back issue is overpowering everything else right now, but slowly starting to feel better after a couple of trips to the chiro (with accompanying medical bills…OUCH)
Gender? Girly girl
Labor signs? Nope.
Belly button in/out? In, but pushing out more and more every day!
What I miss: Being able to bend over like a normal person without crying out in pain.
What I am looking forward to: A 3 day weekend!
The bean is the size of a grapefruit now and weighs just over a pound. I’ve been informed that her eyes are now able to open and close, will their final color be blue?! Guess we won’t know that for a long time!
