Week 23- July 21st - July 28th
Due Date: November 18, 2011
How Big is Baby: I'm still thinking he's papaya size
Symptoms: I jinxed myself. I'm feeling slightly less amazeballs now that I'm approaching the third trimester. I honestly don't feel bad but I have a few complaints.. i.e., I've been a little bit nauseous all week and the dreaded swelling has started. My feet blew up twice this week and my wedding rings had to come off. I was sporting the equivalent of finger muffin top and it was NOT pretty. The ring removal was quite traumatic and included about half a bottle of sex lube. Thankfully, my feet only swelled up after 8pm, but it makes me nervous about what is coming.
Cravings: Nothing significant
Sleep: Still lovely!
I Can't Live Without: Air conditioning. I really don't mind being pregnant in the summer though... in fact, I'll probably plan all other pregnancies around the summer months so I don't need to buy a new wardrobe.
I Miss: Not being swollen
I am Looking Forward to: Getting the nursery set up!
Milestones: More kicks! I'm officially 6 months along (while writing this...)
Awkward Moments: People are mean to pregnant women. Especially your relatives. I cannot think of one thing that my family has said about me except for the fact that a) I'm huge, b) even my teeth are swollen, c) I look 12313 months pregnant, d) I'm fat. It's not very nice.
Exercise: The same ol' walking on the treadmill and yoga.
Diet: I'm not on a special diet.. I'm just starving ALL THE TIME.
Movement: Still kicks, but John is still unable to feel it. Every time I call him over the boy stops moving.
Gender: It's a boy!
Labor Signs: It’s far too soon for this!
