baby #2: week 23

are you wondering where weeks 20-22 went? read my post about my due date change

23 Weeks Pregnant
august 26 - september 1

what has been going on this week: had our ultra sound where we found out we're having a boy(!), my due date got moved up 3 weeks, got fro yo with karen + the boys and with the carlsons, had dinner with anna and michelle, had our gender reveal party, went to the state fair

size of baby: 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound. the size of a mango. whoa! not only did i skip 3 weeks of my pregnancy, but baby is measured from head to feet now, instead of head to butt. 

maternity clothes: purchased a tshirt-dress from bellies to babies. clothing options are getting more limited by the day. however, baby BOY's clothing collection is growing :) 

symptoms: broken out skin, hungry all the time, tired, braxton hicks contractions (which make a little more sense now) 

movement: no wonder i was feeling such strong movement so early on! it was so fun feeling baby moving around AND seeing him on the screen at our ultrasound.  

gender: baby boy! i'm having a boy! still getting used to this exciting news :) 

food cravings/aversions: guess what i had this week? a salted caramel latte...the first hot coffee drink in about 4 months. and it was yummy! i also ate my face off at the state fair. it was a good week! 

morning sickness: still that liiiiitle bit of nausea in the morning. really?  

what i miss: the 3 weeks of my pregnancy i'm missing out on? haha. sort of.  

best moment of the week: finding out the sex and seeing our babe for the first time! 

what thatcher is saying: he was convinced it was going to be another girl, so he is still wrapping his head around the boy idea. 

sleep: up once each night around 3:30am for the bathroom, otherwise still decent.

what i'm looking forward to: planning for our little man. clothes, nursery, name, etc!
