Bumpdate | Week 23

Week|  23

Total Weight Gain| I'm holding out until my doctors appointment next week.

Gender| Baby Girl!

Symptoms| There isn't too much change, though I've notice  the start of a faint line up my stomach, the linea nigra that all the pregnancy books refer too.  I also think I've started to get some acid reflux, at least that's what I'm calling it because I've never experienced it before in my life so I'm just basing it off my own description.

Cravings|  I think I have curbed these pretty decently this last week.  Not to say I still didn't eat chicken salad for nearly every meal, but I'm controlling myself on the sushi and cheese front.  My problem now when I'm hungry is that I just don't know what I want to eat, nothing sounds quite right - especially if I have to cook it!

Sleep|  It's been pretty decent lately - I don't want to jinx it!  I've found a new arrangement with my pillows that is working wonders after an incredibly sleepless weekend.

Clothes|  I'm all about keeping it comfortable, but getting a little nervous about the hotter months ahead.  I still struggle with keeping a more dressy look for work, but I'm sticking pretty much to my staples.

Workouts| I was pretty proud of myself this week.  I made it out for 2 walks, and I fit in 2 video workouts.  I went out a little long for the first walk and my lower back was regretting it for the rest of the day, even into the next, but the weather was just too gorgeous not to get out and enjoy it.

Nursery|  I shared the current state of our nursery earlier this week, and I'm excited to say we've made a good dent in at least getting things ordered/bought.  We picked up a dresser this weekend, got the floor ordered for the room, a crib is on it's way, and I just placed an order for a rug the other night.

Movement|  She was SO active over the weekend.  Starting Friday night through Sunday it felt like she was moving all over the place, Martin even felt a little rumble when he put his hand over my stomach.  Then she quieted down for a few days, which always makes me a little nervous, though I'd get a little flutter now and again, and then last night when I was dancing there she was again!

Best Moment this Week|  Martin surprised me with a prenatal massage and pedicure on Sunday, and it was so nice to relax and get pampered.  Plus feeling like we're making headway for this baby's arrival just feels good.


  1. Yay for prenatal massage! Was it absolutely fabulous??? Feeling her move is a pretty amazing feeling, isn't it? And I'm so glad you're sleeping well again. Take advantage of that for as long as you least that's what everyone is telling me!

  2. You look so cute!!!! Isn't it fun to be able to feel your little one kicking around in there?!?!?!

  3. You are glowing!!! Looking so beautiful girl!! Hope you enjoyed your massage and pedi!! Have a great weekend!

  4. You look so gorgeous! Good for you on those workouts and staying active - I'm sure that will pay off in the long run!

  5. You know I have to say the massage was just kinda ok, I mean don't get me wrong it was totally relaxing and nice to have, but I love a good strong massage and she said because I was pregnant they were only aloud to go so hard. I love feeling her move, it really is amazing!

  6. Thanks! It is so fun being able to feel them move, knowing that they are doing ok!

  7. Thanks girl!! It's always nice to get pampered, I can't complain!

  8. Thanks girl! I definitely have some weeks where I get in good workouts, and some with none at all! Hopefully it will have some sort of pay off!
