I have recently read a few blogs that have had these weekly pregnancy updates. I am a bit of a late starter, and am not going to promise you updates every week, but figured that this is a good day to summarize my pregnancy progress and keep track of some of my belly pics!
How far along? 23 weeks.
Weight gain/loss: 7 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yuppers.
Stretch marks? None so far. Hopefully good genetics and daily moisturization will keep it this way!
Sleep? Wonderful! I am having a really hard time to not sleep on my stomach, though. As my belly isn't that big yet, it is still my most comfortable position. Ryan says that I am snoring a lot. I am not sure if it is because of hormones, or just because I have been sleeping on my back.
Best moment this week? Nothing too exciting, but enjoying all of the kicks. The fact that Ryan can feel them too is awesome!
Food cravings: I haven't had any out of the ordinary food cravings to date. I definitely rely on snacks between my meals though!
Gender: Guessing boy.
Belly button in or out? In. I am also still wearing my belly-button ring.
Movement? Every evening just after I crawl into bed!
What I miss? Belly sleeping, Pina Coladas, Cold & Sinus medications.
What I'm looking forward to: Nursery renovations being complete, 3D ultrasound next weekend!
Weekly wisdom: Ryan and I should take advantage of our next 17 weeks, because our lives will be drastically changed forever in just a short while.
Milestones: Perogy can now hear the world outside of my belly. I should be reading him/her books and communicating in some way with him/her, however, I think that it would feel awkward, as if I were talking to myself!
Pregnancy Brain Moments: I just added this category myself as I felt that it was fitting. Since becoming pregnant, I had thought that Sunday was the day in which I progressed to a new week, but just realized that Saturday is actually the start of a new week for me. I am more pregnant than I thought I was!
