23 weeks

Due Date: August 24, 2012
How far along: 23 weeks
The Bump:

Total weight loss/gain: +5, so -4 lbs overall
Workouts: 3 walks outside this week which felt amazing! I seriously felt like I ran a half marathon after the first 4 mile walk and was very sore, but in a good way. Moving felt awesome!
Baby items purchased: A small squirrel statue I saw at Patina for the nursery
Sleep: The pregnancy pillow is helping me sleep MUCH better! I'm still getting up to pee at night which interrupts my sleep, but overall sleeping pretty well.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing really this week
Symptoms: Some back pain, but nothing too intense
Food cravings: Granny Smith apples with Peanut Butter - I've had it each day this week
Maternity clothes: Yup, wearing and loving them!
Stretch marks: No
Gender ideas: Tyge thinks it's a girl, I really don't have a feeling one way or another.
Movement: Yes - such an amazing feeling! Petrie is kicking and punching and moving and grooving all over in there. Tyge can't really feel from the outside yet but I can't wait until he can share in this feeling!
Labor Signs: Not yet, thank goodness!
Miss anything: Red wine :)
Best moment this week: Date Night last night where we celebrated our first date at Vic's 5 years ago - such a great night together talking about where we've been and where we're going. Gotta take advantage of date nights before we have to ask Grandparents or pay a babysitter to watch Petrie!
Looking forward to: My nephew's birthday party later today - I can't believe he's 3 already! I still remember the day he was born and how time has flown since then...before we know it, Petrie will be 3...oh my...


  1. Love that baby bump! Looking great like always.

  3. Yay! Your belly is so cute! I've been dunking apples in my peanut butter, too! :)
