23 weeks!

I like to think that I'm 'practically 6 months.' Makes me feel a little better about how big I'm getting!

Even though I have really grown this past week, the sweater is a little deceiving. I'll post more pics later this week.

How Far Along: 23 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby Girl is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound - about as much as a large mango. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb. Looks like she already knows our Snickers!

Total Weight Gain: 9 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Still wearing a combo of both but I went maternity clothes shopping last week and got a ton of cute things! It's so nice having different options to wear each day.
Gender: We're having a Baby Girl!!! Side note: we are going to keep Baby Girl's name a secret :)
Movement: Yes! She moves all day long. She's big enough now where I can see her move through the outside of my clothes.
Sleep: Sleeping great!

Symptoms: I had a few very long days at work last week, including working Saturday. And we also had two weddings over the weekend. Needless to say, I've been exhausted and it's taken me a few days to catch up.
What I miss: ???
Cravings: Can't think of anything new this week. I'm sure Chris would disagree.
Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our Baby Girl on a sonogram. She is 200% girl! It's amazing that everything is developed already.

What I am looking forward to: Registering! Chris and I are going to start the process this week.
