Mango Retchless: Week 23

How Far Along: 23 weeks.

Size of Baby
: 11+ inches, and over 1 pound.
Total Weight Gain/Loss:

Workouts: Taking a positive spin on the weight issue and adding a new field for what exercise I did over the past week. Since last Monday I did 3 Bar Method classes and a handful of Nana walks (ranging from a 20 minute leisurely stroll to a 50 minute power walk).

Maternity Clothes: Why, hello maternity jeans! I finally pulled out a couple pairs of the elastic waisters and I am very happy I did.

Movement: Dancing more each day. Scott was able to feel a little, tiny kick but not much since. Baby Boy tends to get a little shy once I catch on to the fact he's moving and try to feel him.
They both gave up (and Noah gave the baby a few high fives while he was at it)

: Growing belly (and hips, thighs, butt).
What I Miss: NyQuil. Had a bit of a cold this week and was seriously wishing for some NyQuil to knock it out of my system. Settled for Tylenol PM and I am already on the mend. One benefit of being pregnant is that I am getting tons of fluids, good rest, exercising regularly and not drinking...all good things when trying to kick a cold.
Girl or Boy
: Boy!
Belly button In or OutInnie but getting seriously flat.

Stretch Marks
Nope. Never got any with Noah so I am hoping that is my good fortune for this pregnancy, too. 
Cravings: Zero.

Best Moment This Week
: Jess & Kirk came over and made mocktails! I seriously underestimated these little gems. I will definitely be trying a few new recipes over the next 17 weeks. 
I look tired. As I mentioned...fighting a mean cold. Also, third day hair...I commit to showering today!
I much prefer this one with my head cut off ;-). This bump seriously shape shifts throughout the day!
AND, just for fun...23 weeks with Noah:
I miss exactly nothing about that purple shirt!
