23 Week Bumpdate

 23 Week Bumpdate

How far along: 23 weeks
Size of baby: Papaya
Baby's size and weight: 8 in, 1.2 lb
My total weight gain: 25 pounds. I'm miserable. Baby's development: -Can hear baby's heartbeat through a stethoscope!-Baby's skin is reddish in color because of developing blood vessels-Skin is loose because skin grows faster than the fat
Stretch marks: None.
Maternity clothes: Yes! I just ordered some more leggings because that's about the only thing that are comfortable now. I'm telling you, I am gaining in totally different places than I did with Bubs. 
Gender: Girl.
Movement: All the time. HUGE kicks yesterday!
Sleep: Still taking Unisom every night...I was up from 1-3 a.m. last night, hence the late posting today ;) 
What I miss: Being comfortable while wearing a bra. Even my pregnancy bras are starting to annoy me.  
Food cravings: Nothing too specific this week. 
Symptoms: Anxious, tired, hormonal. 
Nolan is: fighting a little cold. I have been one exhausted mama this past week. 
Zach is: busy with school. He's in class all day and only has time to talk at night, which by the time he calls I am getting Bubs ready for bed. As soon as Bubba falls asleep, I go to sleep too because guess who has to wake up early with him and do it all over again alone? This girl. It's been a challenge but we're used to not talking very often I suppose.
What I'm looking forward to: my best friend from college coming to visit this weekend! 
Best moments: Nolan is getting better at saying "Paislee" by calling her "Peas-lee". I'll take it for now haha
Funny things:  Someone told me I look like I'm having a boy. No, no. It's a girl (or at least it better be after checking 4 times!) Just kidding, of course I would love a healthy baby boy but I would be out A LOT of money! 
Not so funny things: taking care of Nolan all by myself. I'm grateful my parents can help me at night but during the day and until 7 pm I'm solo dolo. I can't wait until Z is back to lessen the load!
23 Week BumpdateThe hubby sent me flowers this week because he knows how rough of a time I've been having. I think flowers are a waste of money but I'm not going to lie, they are pretty to look at and his note sure made me feel good :)

And I also started a little craft for Miss P's room! I can't decide whether to hang ribbon from the back and hang them OR hang them in an empty frame (saw it on Pinterest of course). What's your vote?
Hope everyone has a super fabulous weekend! Love you all! xoxo!
