Officially 23 weeks today (Thursday). There are only 17 weeks left until our new little man enters this world. Crazy! Feeling pretty good this week! That 3-day weekend really energized me. I think everyone should have 4-day work weeks. It would keep everyone happy...like me...and I'm pretty much a standard representation of everyone.
This week I switched up my schedule a little bit. I have now started showering and doing my hair at night. I put product in it and then let it air dry and braid it before bed. The result is usually a crazy cool texture in the morning and then I play around with it for a bit and usually curl it. I've been able to sleep in a little longer and I have time to do my makeup in the morning. I think a good move on my part!
So, the usual questionnaire:
How far along? 23 weeks
Weight gain/loss: You will never know. All you need to worry about is how I'm going to lose it.
Maternity clothes? Yeppers.
Stretch marks? My fair skinned curse. I am noticing the more my belly stretches, the less harsh they look. C'est la vie. Still lathering on the lotion every day and drinking water like it's going out of style to prevent new ones.
Sleep? Great this week (I'm knocking on wood as I say that)! I usually wake up once a night to go potty. It's usually some time between 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. when baby starts being pretty active.
Best moment this week? Sleeeeeeeep!
Food cravings: Rice Krispies cereal with tons of blueberries mixed in. And, sadly, cake. I'm trying to be really good about this one though. And still and always pizza. I swear I could eat it everyday. Casseroly (new word I made up!) type meals with stuff all mixed together.
Gender: Baby G is a boy!
Belly button in or out? In, but I noticed that it is looking super stretched all of the sudden.
Movement? Not a ton. I've been pretty busy this week and usually don't get the chance to sit down until around 9:30 p.m, but he has given me a few good thumps to remind me he's there.
What I miss? Going to Zumba. Having smaller legs and butt...they just look so big this week.
What I'm looking forward to: Being a family of four and having the summer off with my boys and all of my family! That will just be the best thing ever!
Weekly wisdom: This link has kept me laughing all week long. My all time laugh your pants off one: "Hey mama. It's cool. I know that pooping on the delivery table is completely natural." I about lost it when I read that one.
Milestones: Baby boy weighs more than a pound and a half right now and is about 8 1/2 inches long. His face is fully formed, but he is still lacking all of that cute baby fat. Baby can hear me breathing, any tummy bubbles I might have, my voice and any outside voices.
And now, back by popular demand, yet another rendition of That Lazy Corgi of Mine:
Kiss your mother with that mouth?
I am sooooo neglected
I can seeeeee you
Matchmaker Matchmaker make me a match, find me a find, catch me a catch
Serisouly woman? No more pictures, I'm trying to sleep on your couch pillows.
