23 weeks, back to the schedule

Size of Baby/ This week's fruit:
We are 23 weeks now! Little Miss Lucy is the size of a pomegranate. The belly is making it's first real appearance now since we have the lovely maternity pants covering up a portion of it. Don't want to expose Lucy (or myself) too much! First time I tried my maternity pants on in the store was a hoot. I had no idea that they didn't have a fly/zipper! I think I look paler in every picture that I post. No sun tanning for me lately!

Cravings: Nothing new here. I don't have any weird cravings, I kinda doubt that I will at this point. I'm trying to curb my desire for sugar though so I can pass the glucose test next week. Yikes!

What I love now: The movement, lots and lots of movement. Being able to feel her kick and flip and move around is probably the best part of the pregnancy so far (besides the fact that I'm having a baby of course!). Sitting and watching my belly pop and move from her action just never seems to get old.

Symptoms: Still low on energy, heart burn and indigestion started up and I have had some Braxton Hicks contractions. They aren't really regular and they aren't painful so not worried about them so far.

Highlight of the week: We got our registries done a couple weekends ago, we feel like we are in a good place right now with getting things done and how it is progressing. I'm excited about visiting my best friend in 2 weeks for the celebration of Lucy's future best friend's 1st birthday party. So excited! Our babymoon is also coming up which is exciting. My husband has a conference in Vancouver, BC and I am tagging along so this will be our babymoon trip. Very excited about our trip and having a chance to go and relax in a beautiful place.

Here is a little sneak peek of the nursery so far:

Gender: Miss Lucy Goosey :)

  1. Just stopping by to say hi! I found your comment on another blog I was reading and clicked through to you site! Congrats on your pregnancy!! Cute baby bump picture:-)

    This site has some great Cloth Dipaer sales!! The sales change all of the time and are usually put out by the manufacturer. Meaning that lots of the stores that carry a particular brand of diapers will have the same sale:)

    Good luck with your little on:-)
