I realize these are not the most popular posts, but bare with me…I’m so thankful I did them with Beckham’s pregnancy.
I went to the doctor yesterday for my 24 week appointment. My doctor is off next week due to Spring Break so I went in this week! All is well…I totally forgot to ask what the heartbeat was or how I was measuring. I go back April 1 for my glucose test.
Three things about Week 23:
1. It hit me that I really should start doing something baby related to prepare for this new addition. You would think it should be easy since we’ve already had a baby, especially since it’s a boy, but I know two kids is a whole new game. I want to be as prepared as possible, especially since I’m running my own Etsy shop and will need to re-open it soon after baby is here. On my to-do is inventorying all of B’s clothes and gathering baby stuff for #2. Also need to clean the guest room and order the dresser.
2. I was sick majority of this week (still getting over it), so I literally put on make-up for this picture
and clothes other than my pajamas. I just want to be able to breathe through my nose again.
3. Beckham started talking to the baby this week. He’ll lift my shirt up and want to put his belly on mine. Then he’ll tell him something in his jibberjabber!
How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 10 pounds total (0 pounds this week)
How big is baby? Size of a grapefruit. One of my favorite fruits! Baby can hear my voice and heartbeat, even loud noises like honking and dogs barking…I am positive he will definitely know his big brother’s voice when he is born.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep? Got up a couple times this week during sleep to use the restroom. Haven’t used my body pillow yet.
Fitness? No, but I blame being sick this week. Yes, being sick…that is why I didn’t work out.
Best moment this week? Ryan felt him move! I love watching him move around.
Miss anything? Not really, although I really would like some sushi or Jimmy Johns!
Food cravings? Burgers. I’m not sure this is really new, but I am really enjoying burgers! And cereal!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Current Symptoms? Just the norm – peeing a lot and every now and then my stomach will cramp. Oh and forgetfull…lol
Belly button in or out? Flat.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood? Anxious. I want everything in my house to be organized and clean, which is probably making me a bit moody with the Mr. And I tell you what, I am really over this wishy washy weather and ready for Spring. I should be used to it by now in Texas, but I just want to enjoy some nice weather outside.
The middle picture represents how I felt this week…
Excuse the toddler in his pj’s…I was too lazy to get him dressed for this picture…we were actually going somewhere so I could have dressed him, but I just wanted to snap the photo and be done!
23 Weeks with Beckham. We were in Domincan Republic celebrating 4 years married! I would love a vacation right now.
