23 week bumpdate!



No pictures this week I forgot to take it before I left for work and we have not mirror that can fit my big self all in one shot! 



How far along? 23 weeks

Total weight gain: No clue I have an appointment next week
Maternity clothes? Yes maternity clothes with some regular tank tops mixed in I always wear one under my brace and I love the Mossimo ones from Target but even the Larges are getting too short I may have to move up the XL just for length
Stretch marks? No new ones. Using lotion twice a day morning and night. I might be making the switch to coconut oil too.

Sleep: Off and on. I had a few bouts of insomnia this weekend and then the next day I was so dog tired it was awful. Plus if Grayson gets me up in the middle of the night to go potty (which yes!! We love that!) I am up for at least an hour after because I can’t get comfortable
Best moment this week: To be honest the babies moving has really picked up and I love the little reminders but other than that I have been having a rough week
Miss Anything? Being able to roll over in bed without pain and stomach/back sleeping. My hips are feeling the side sleeping.
 Movement: Yes two ninjas in there..

Food cravings: Turkey bacon with cheese melted on it and wrapped in a whole grain tortilla. It sounds weird but it’s delicious and healthy since I measure out one serving of cheese! Cottage cheese, yogurt and still peanut butter m&m’s
Anything making you queasy or sick: It’s more heartburn than anything and this week my beloved double stuffed oreo’s have been the biggest culprit boos!
 Gender: Boy and Girl
Labor Signs: No and to be honest I wouldn’t know them if they hit me in the face. With Grayson I didn’t think I was contracting until I went in to be induced and I was having off the chart contractions. I never experience Braxton hicks so I have no idea.

Symptoms: A giant belly and the fact that the pelvic pressure has sent me into tears a few times this week.
Belly Button in or out? Flat. My belly looks fake
Wedding rings on or off? My band is off but my engagement ring is on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: Our dr’s appointment next Thursday I’m ready to see the babies again
Grayson: He told his teachers he was having a brother and a sister and that Michael would take care of one and he would take care of one
My emotions are all over the place, I range from being overwhelmed, to over joyed, to panicked to crying about the affect it will have on Grayson and all the why’s and how’s that we still need to figure out. I’m finally starting to wade out of that madness and my list making and Jesus calling has helped so much. Plus being pregnant with all the hormones makes me a little over dramatic.
