Is it a weird coincidence that sometimes when the babies size is compared to a particular fruit....it is the fruit that I can't get enough of at the time? Right now the baby is the size of a large mango, but roughly 11" long.
How far along: 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I'll tell you during week 25 update.
Stretch marks: Yes, but really they don't bother me. They aren't dark and the slightly pinkish one is below the belly so it's not like I can see it anyway...and I won't be wearing my bikini anytime soon.
Sleep: Still a tough one. Waking up to pee more, waking up to roll over, surrounded by pillows. I know this is only going to get worse.
Movement: Yes and no. Bill finally felt it which was nice, but I feel like it doesn't move enough. This is probably my biggest worry. I wake up worried about the baby until I feel it, then I feel like it's not in the right place and not moving enough.
Food cravings: I just like food still, no weird cravings. I tried Greek yogurt for the first time and feel like I died and went to heaven. I eat it daily with...a mango!
Frustrations: The worry. I worried from week 4 to week 14, then I just felt better..that everything was going to be ok. Then at the 20 week ultrasound the worry kicked in again. I seriously worry that there is something wrong all the time and it definitely is centered around the movement. At the same time I know there are women who aren't even feeling their baby yet. Then I worried this morning because I was going to share a belly picture and I think it looks the same as it did last time I showed it..which I feel like can't be normal. Crazy. Having a baby is a stressful thing. I'm going to have more gray hair under my colored hair once I'm done with this!
What I miss: Not worrying.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't stuff yourself, it's VERY uncomfortable.
