Bump Update: 23 Weeks

How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Have not weighed myself after Thanksgiving. No pregnant woman should have to, thats my new rule.
Maternity clothes? Same story here, a little bit of everything with mostly regular clothes mixed in.
Stretch marks? None so far.
Sleep: Not so bad.
Best moment this week: Thanksgiving with family!
Have you told family and friends: Should I delete this question? haha. Any questions you all would like to see me replace it with? Suggestions?
Miss Anything? Really, really missing my tan in this picture. I think that might boost my self esteem! 
Movement: Yes, and I think he was kicking me to stop eating on Thursday. No more room Mom!
Food cravings: More apples! The sweet tooth hasn't been as bad this past week, thank goodness.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Awful indigestion. I feel bad for having to take zantac, tums, etc. but it is SO bad.
Have you started to show yet: Yes :)
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy for the most part! Although, the last few days I have been thinking about how far I have to go. It seems like SO long. I know we are well over the halfway point but I'm getting anxious!
Looking forward to: My birthday is Friday and getting to celebrate that! Although, I must say it will be the first time in many, many moons that I haven't enjoyed several a beverage on my birthday! I know its all worth it though. Also looking forward to my friend Seldon's engagement party Saturday. My sisters baby is due any time now too! Lots and lots to look forward to.

Other moments from this week...

{Our last football game of the season. Thank goodness, I was getting bored watching everyone drink.  It really has been fun but I'm ready for a break now!}

{Sunday night, Stephen put together baby C's crib. So many thing to comment on here: First of all, Tucker is once again carefully watching what is going on. Second of all, our little man already has a Christmas rug for next year! Third of all, I love this Daddy so much and I was so happy watching him put it together}

Happy almost birthday! I bet you could find some awesome mocktail recipes on pinterest worth trying to help celebrate on the big day!

Sweet, Pink and Preppy said...

Agreed with Cotton, I'm sure Pinterest has a ton of mocktails! Can't wait to see how you decorate the rest of his room!

Nat said...

My SIL wore self tanner all through out her pregnancy- she works in beauty and cosmetics and just used the senstive skin products. (She said it made her feel much better especially in the later months when she was big and uncomfortable)

Hopefully you can have some fun mocktails to celebrate your birthday!

I hope you have a great birthday and I'm sure you can find some yummy mocktails on Pinterrest!!! :)

Hannah said...

I really like your new rule of not weighing after Thanksgiving--pregnant or not. ;) I feel so pale and I swear it makes me look sick. I gave up tanning two years ago and tell myself I will be thankful later. It's way past time to break out my self tanner. Have a wonderful birthday! Mine is Thursday.

I spray tanned the whole time I was pregnant. My doc said it was fine and made me feel much more confident!

You're going to have so much fun getting the nursery ready, seeing the crib come together is exciting! Bummer about the cocktails, I'm a Sag too, I'll celebrate extra for you! :)

Kate @ Daffodils said...

I love the crib! And I always feel bad for saying it, but not drinking is the worst part, especially when everyone around you is!
