How Far Along:
23 weeks 3 days
Size of baby:
According to The Bump, baby girl is the size of a grapefruit this week
Yes and no. Still wearing a mixture of both and pretty much anything that fits and is comfy.
She's a little wiggle worm and I'm even able to feel her on the outside of my belly every once in awhile. I'm going to see if I can get Allen to feel her at just the right time!
Oh goodness this is an ongoing battle and I'm sure it will stay that way. Sleeping on my sides is just not comfortable at all for me and I wake up often on my back. I can't seem to keep from doing that. However, even that isn't comfortable and I'm getting back pains more and more . . . Someone convince Allen we need a new mattress!
What I miss:
Right now I'm missing things I took for granted before being pregnant like easily painting my toe-nails, shaving my legs and sleeping soundly on my stomach.
I desperately want broccoli cheese soup from McAllisters as well as an Auntie Anne's pretzel . . . hoping to indulge in both of these asap
Back pains are the bain of my existence at the moment and other than that I'm feeling pretty great (sleep issues aside).
Favorite Moment This Week:
Yesterday we had our comprehensive anatomy scan and it was AMAZING!! We loved being able to see every little part of our baby girl and check on her health. Even though my regular doctor does an ultrasound at every appointment, this was completely different because of the machinery and in-depth look at her. We even got to see her in 3D and some in 4D! The moment the doctor came in to give us the results of the whole scan was the most amazing moment so far besides finding out she's a she. He told us she looks perfect and that she is completely healthy overall. All her organs look great, her limbs are long (thank you to my Dad!), her head is a bit big (thanks to her Daddy!) and she's measuring right on track if not a little bit ahead. It was seriously the best appointment we've had yet and we're so thankful for a healthy prognosis.
Worst Moment This Week:
Honestly just getting over the bronchitis and allergy gunk I've got going on is all that I'll dwell on because other than that I'm loving this week completely.
Looking Forward To:
Going home this weekend!!! I'm in desperate need of some family time since I haven't been home since the first weekend of September.
