So, this week we're celebrating twenty-three weeks of pregnancy---woohoo! I swear, is it just me, or does time seem to go by faster and faster with each passing week?? I'm definitely not complaining; I get more and more eager to meet our little Peanut every day! Come on, July!
As always, let's take a peek at little Miss' progress...
-heartburn/indigestion (O. M. G. I can't drink water without getting one or both of these anymore)
-backache/achy hips and legs
-fatigue (definitely noticing this more lately...but I still can't seem to take a nap during the day!)
-nausea (mostly when I'm really hungry or when I get those wicked heartburn attacks)
-mild hot flashes (mainly at night or when I'm wearing socks...odd, huh?)
Size of Baby:
Pomegranate (about a foot long still and a little over a pound...this weight should double within the next four weeks, though!)
Reagan is starting to recognize our voices and familiar sounds/songs! I swear she starts to move around more when her Daddy is talking (not necessarily to her, even), but he thinks the opposite because she will stop kicking when he puts his hand on my belly. (Guess she's just being stubborn...wonder where she gets that from?? ;) lol) She also likes it when I play music on my phone or in the car. Certain things startle her, like the house alarm going off or if someone honks their horn. It's so funny to feel her reaction to different sounds!
I know I have a ways to go, but man, do I feel like a beached whale already! As my super sweet husband informed me recently, I no longer look like I have a "beer gut", but now "actually look pregnant". I know, sweet, huh? lol But he did follow that up by telling me I don't look pregnant from the front or the back, just when I turn to the side. Awww, thanks, Baby Daddy! ;) Anyway, here is our weekly picture from this morning...
That's it for this week, guys and gals! I have some things to accomplish in Reagan's room (organizing the closet and putting up her adorable name decal that came in this week---eek!), and then I think I will lay on the couch and watch Food Network reruns till my little heart is content while the Mister is out playing golf. Doesn't that sound divine? The only way it could get better is if a chocolate cake with fudge icing magically appeared in my kitchen...uh oh, I've done it now. I've started a craving that I might just have to go to the store to satisfy...lol.
I pray you all have a fabulous Easter Sunday celebrating the resurrection of our Lord! Even with all of the yummy food, family time, easter eggs, and candy, remember the reason we honor this weekend: the sacrifice that was made and the promise that was fulfilled. "He is not here; He has risen, just as He said He would!" (Matthew 28:6) To God be the glory! :)
