23 Weeks

How far along? 23 Weeks

Total weight gain: 7lbs

Maternity clothes? Nope 

Stretch marks? No new ones!

Sleep: A few days after returning from Florida I started sleeping horribly. This makes for a very grumpy,groggy,tired Desiree

Best moment this week: Amar'e insisting on me feeling her belly because she is convinced there is a baby in there. Seriously.....too.....cute!!!

Miss anything? Being able to sit, stand, bend over normally. Sciatica is horrible! It is getting really really bad!

Movement:Yes, yes, yes. Lots of movement. Kicks are getting stronger.

Food cravings: Fruits and vegetables,lemons,tomatoes,nachos,chocolate chip cookies, salt, this chickpea concoction that Andrew whipped up one day for lunch, Brussels sprouts, caramelized onions, Mangos,Watermelon...

Anything making you queasy or sick: Pretty much over this part of the journey.I hope.

Gender: We will not be finding out the gender until the day the baby arrives. I have been watching the DVD of the ultrasound, and I have a suspicion that we are having a boy. I am in no way trained in gender determination of ultrasounds, so I am extremely uncertain. We still will be picking out a boy name and a girl name. 

Symptoms: Heartburn has become a huge problem. Its usually sets in during the evening and it makes me miserable!!

Belly button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Still getting some mood swings on and off. If I get hungry...watch out.

Looking forward to: My sciatica adjustment on 7/9, but sad I might have to reshedule due to Andrew's schedule.
