Here's the moose. This is one of those situations where our child will never appreciate the cuteness factor as much as we do. Sigh.
How far along?: 23w1d
How big is Baby?: Baby W is now about a foot long and weighing in at a pound!
Maternity clothes?: Yes-- and like I said before, some of them are tight. Boo!
Sleep?: Yes, and the leg cramps have subsided for the last 3 nights. Knock on wood.
Best moment of the week?: Watching my belly move from the outside! I see nothing obvious at this point, just movements and pushes. The most uncomfortable moment of the week came on Monday when Baby W decided to scrape something inside my belly. It felt as though he took a spoon and rubbed my organs. Ouch.
Movements?: A ton! He's been quite active the last couple of days. He was a mover this morning and my husband told him that he should be sleeping and not waking up so early-- and that when he is out of the womb, these rules apply. Haha.
Food cravings?: Like I said, how about everything?
Aversions?: Exercise? Haha. I did go for a 3 mile jog at 23 weeks, so I'm proud. Was it the slowest jog ever? Absolutely.
What I miss?: I miss all of my clothes. Being limited to 4 pairs of shorts, a few dresses, and a few pairs of pants is never fun.
What I'm looking forward to?: We're looking forward to our road trip this weekend to see family in Seven Springs, PA!
Anything else?: Apparently I could be noticing some Braxton Hicks contractions coming soon. I haven't yet. Baby W's skin transparency is changing to pigment. This is also when I start to pack on the pounds, from what I've been reading.
This week in history: Schools are beginning to open from summer break in the US, Rob Blagojevich was convicted on one count and could face up to 5 years in prison.
What's going on this week (with us)?: We had had our German friend and visitor in town, Sascha. We took him to a Cubs game in Wrigleyville on Monday evening and he had his first Chicago dog. Our weekend was wonderful and I already posted plenty of photos on our fun from that. We're headed to PA this weekend and we're really excited to see everyone!
