Pregnancy Journal: Week 23

WOW I have made it past the half way mark of my pregnancy it is so hard to believe! Which also means there are 18 weeks and 5 days until Christmas!!

How Far Along -  
23 Weeks Pregnant (23 weeks 1 day) 

Due Date - 
December 13th, 2013 

Boy or Girl - 

Bump Picture -  will post later

Baby Development - 
Baby weighs about 1 pound and measures 11 inches now. With baby's sense of movement well developed by now, baby can feel when you dance. Now you should be able to see baby squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in the baby's lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing it for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now like the dog barking or the vacuum cleaner probably won't faze baby when it hears them outside the womb.

Symptoms -  
I have been feeling pretty good lately other than the pain down below from baby sitting lower then my others did. 

Current Cravings -  
This week I haven't had any cravings.

Currently Avoiding - 
I am still avoiding doughnuts and orange juice both give me a very bad upset stomach. 

Belly Button Status -  
It is just about out.

Movement -  
Baby is moving a lot now and is getting the hiccups a bunch which is fun to feel! 

Any Appointments? -  
No doctor appointments this week.

Any Baby Related Purchases? -  
Didn't buy anything again this week for the baby. Since we don't know what baby is there won't be to much bought probably since we already have boy and girl stuff.

  1. Yay, you're getting closer! Sorry about skipping OJ, but I've heard that that means it's a girl. Wonder if it's true? :)

  2. Yay for being more than half way... that's always relieving to be that far along.

  3. Time is flying! No Doughnuts is misery!!! :(

  4. 23 weeks already?! :) I used to get heartburn with doughnuts too... weird.
