23 weeks!

Today is: February 12th, 2013

How far along: 23 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain: 9.0 pounds for the pregnancy, up 2.4 from last month

Baby is the size of: A GRAPEFRUIT, approximately 10.5 inches long and according to thebump 12.7oz BUT the Ultrasound today estimated him at 1lb 5oz!

Baby is a: A BOY! We saw for sure today, no denying that.  I cannot wait to start the real planning now!

Maternity clothing: Most definitely. A few non-maternity shirts and pj pants but that's about it

Sleep:  If I make it to midnight without waking to pee that's a good night.  The second pee of the night (usually around 2) I come back to bed and it takes over an hour to fall back asleep

Movement: Much more than last month! I'm still not feeling him all day but he has definite active periods.  I was thinking he was transverse because of where I was feeling him but turns out he's breech right now.

Cravings/Aversions: Cravings? Soda, sweets, girl scout cookies, wings Aversions? Nothing really

Symptoms:
- Bloody Gums. When I floss it looks like I was punched in the mouth!
- Sore boobs
-Pubic Symphysis pain- it's just begining. Hoping that my regular trips to the chiro will keep it undercontrol

 How this pregnancy is different than the first:
-Weight Gain.  With Truitt I was up 3lbs more than I am now
-Gestational Diabetes? I most likely failed my test. More on this soon.

 The best moment(s) of this past week:
-Anatomy scan- All looks great and his heart rate was 144- exactly what Truitt's was at his scan!
-Feeling him move more
-Knowing for sure that we're getting a baby brother!
-Buying a brand new Ergo for $70!

I'm looking forward to:
-Registering! We don't need much but it's still fun
-Planning B's nursery
-Viability is a week away
