How Far Along: 23 weeks and 3 days
Size of Baby: According to The Bump, the baby is about 11.4 inches long and weighs about 1.1 pound. We're finally measuring in pounds instead of just ounces!
Gender: It's a girl!! Her name is Sadie! Still working on a middle name...
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes. But my favorite things to wear are pajama pants, big t-shirts, and maternity leggings.
Wedding Rings On/Off: On
Stretch Marks: No new ones yet
Cravings/Aversions: I don't know if these are technically cravings, but I'll see something random at the grocery store and just really want it. I've made Rice Krispies Treats a few times and I also bought some Raisinets at Publix because they were on sale. They were so good that I bought a 36 ounce bag of them at Walmart the next time I went.
Symptoms: I'm starting to get more and more uncomfortable, unfortunately. I feel like I have some joints out of place in my lower back which is painful a lot of the time. I've also been having some ligament pain, but it's not too bad unless I stand up too fast. I'm *still* getting plugged ears multiple times every single day, which is super annoying. Whenever it happens, I can hear myself breathing and it drives me nuts.
Movement: She has started to kick all the time! I still feel her the most when I'm laying down, but I feel little kicks all throughout the day now, too. Daniel felt her for the first time a little over a week ago.
Mood: I'm still feeling happy most of the time, with a little guilt mixed in because I feel like I'm not doing enough with Emery because I'm more tired and uncomfortable.
What I Miss: Moving around easily! I feel like I've already got the waddle going on!
Looking Forward To: Working on the nursery! I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also dreading it just a tiny bit because I'm super indecisive and have the hardest time starting projects!
