Second Pregnancy :: Week 23

Second Pregnancy :: Week 23

Age of baby #1:
17 months (which will make them ~21.5 months apart)

How far along:
23 weeks

How big is baby:
the size of a grapefruit

Weight gain:
2 lbs. (for a total weight gain of 15 lbs.)

Maternity clothes:
I don’t remember spending much time out of my workout clothes this week.  I suppose I put a dress on for girl’s night (check out my mocktail below!), but that was about as fancy as I got.

Oh, and I purchased two pairs of maternity yoga pants which finally arrived in the mail on Friday (I didn’t buy any during my first pregnancy, but I’m glad I did this time around because they’re SO much comfier and don’t cut into my skin as it continues to grow). 

Here’s what I purchased ::

GapFit gBalance Pants
(the have long inseams and they’re actually really long!!!)

Stretch marks:
None yet.  It’s interesting – my boobs are much bigger this time around (they’re still small, but for me, they’re BIG…haha) and they’ve been SUPER itchy so I’ve been applying lots of Mother’s Special Blend at night.  It helps relieve the itchiness.

Belly button:

I’ve been sleeping like a rock. It’s been glorious.

Best moment of the week:
Enjoying the weekend and not having to do a ton of work.  That was SO nice.

Food cravings:
Cheese and crackers.

Food aversions:

Heartburn.  Bad heartburn.  So annoying!

he’s a mover and a shaker and she loves it when Daddy “holds” her – she moves extra for him and he loves it.


What I’m looking forward to:
My last minute Atlanta trip this week.

What I’m nervous about:
Flying alone with Abigail at nearly 6 months pregnant (and we’re sharing a seat…we couldn’t justify buying her a $700 plane ticket).  Fingers crossed she’s in the mood for cartoons!

What I miss: 
Nothing that I can think of at the moment.

Next appointment:
July 25th
