23 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 23 weeks

*I had a vendor come in yesterday and tell me that I look like I'm due sooner than December. Thanks buddy*
*I meant to post this early last week but got sick. These are weeks 19-21 and I'm even bigger now*

Size of baby: According to the baby is about the size of a large mango.

Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With his sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that he's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see him squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze him when he hears them outside the womb

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +10-11 pounds. I started out at 103-105 and now I'm around 114-116 depending on if I weigh myself in the morning or at night.

Maternity Clothes: I got my order from Old Navy and I love all the shirts, they fit great and are super comfy. Hopefully they will last until the end of the pregnancy. Below are pictures of the tops I bought.

I also bought some black leggings which I suspect I'll be spending a LOT of time in.
Gender: Team Blue!

Movement: He's quite the mover and shaker in there and his kicks are getting more prominent on the outside as well.
What I miss: My husband, he's leaving today to go fishing for the next 5 days at the beach with his buddies. Something about being pregnant makes me more clingy to him.

Sleep: Better than last week.

Symptoms: backaches and breakouts and the skin on my tummy feeling tighter and tighter

Cravings: Hershey chocolate bars. I had a craving Sunday night and Kristian went out to buy me one and this is what he came home with. He said he wanted to be prepared with all options. haha

Best Moment this week: Getting a healthy heart report at my echo cardiogram ultrasound!

What I am looking forward to: Going shopping this weekend, hoping to find a cute dress for my baby shower in Oct.

You look so cuuute! Too funny your husband went out and got you all different kinds of Hershey's candy! Very sweet of him too! :)

I was just logging on to see how your bump was going and there it is! I LURVE it.

Aw, Kristian's a good egg. :)

I love those tops. I also loved the roll top skirt Old Navy has. I wore that post-baby, too. I'd still wear it if I didn't feel weird wearing maternity clothes not pregnant (though I do still wear a strapless jumper thing as a beach coverup).

I thought I was cured of the baby fever, but it's totally coming back. Bad news for Rob.

Bwhahaha. I love all the Hershey's, what a good husband!

You look adorable! I love the tops you picked out, so cute!

You look beautiful, and I love the super cute shirts! You can never go wrong with Hershey's.

Kristen said...

You look great!

Only a man would tell a woman that she looks like she is due sooner than she!

Girl, you look gorgeous. Your tiny frame is the only reason he'd think you were further along. I only wish I could look as cute as you :)

Now u got me craving chocolate! :)

Why American men should boycott American women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again.
