Bumpdate: Week 23

23 weeks yesterday!

I had no idea how dirty my mirror was until I took this picture. Didn't have time to clean it and retake, so this is what you get. ::: embarrassed:::

How big is baby? The size of a grapefruit


Getting closer to a ruler!!

Maternity ClothesStill maternity pants only. I have a few maternity shirts but regular shirts still fit (regular shirt in picture). Trying to get by with what I have for the school year. I'm sure I'll live in comfy clothes and dresses all summer!

Stretch Marks: Tiny one on the back of the top of my hip, but it could have been there before!

Sleep: Same from last week...Very sleepy. Hips still hurt unless I get the pillow just right. 

Best moment of the week? Finishing state testing!!

Movement: Feeling more...which is crazy! If I press one side, I can usually feel a kick or two!

Food cravings: Nothing really. Nothing sounding too good lately.

Food aversions: Not much.

Belly button in or out? In!

What I miss: Not having hip pain. But still thankful overall so I hate to complain!

What I'm looking forward to: May 1st Doctor checkup and scheduling glucose test. I want to get it over with. I'm so scared of this darn test!!

Milestones: My school shower has been scheduled in May and my mom showed me the invites for my shower my aunt and sister and hosting (which isn't for a while). Crazy!! 

Also I can't believe she can now start to hear a lot. I've been listening to a lot of music. All different kinds. Classical (of course), jazz, Disney, and musicals. J and I love the arts and maybe that will rub off a bit!


  1. OH the hips! Jimmy laughs at all the pillows I sleep with, LOL

  2. Great picture! I'm 16 weeks and just starting to grow out of my pants, so definitely in that chubby looking stage still, instead of pregnant. And I just ordered a Snoogle pillow - I can't believe I spend $65 on a freaking pillow - but I've had several friends say they are amazing.

  3. You look great! Don't worry about the glucose test! The one hour one wasn't bad at all. I didn't mind the drink. Now, the three hour wasn't so fun, but I'm sure you won't have to take that one!

  4. Looking good! The glucose test isn't bad it all- I got the fruit punch flavor and it tasted like a really sugary kool aid. I only had to do the one hour and it was easy.
