All about feeding our little foodies

23 weeks pregnant

I’m keeping it short and sweet this week.  I’m now 23 weeks pregnant, there’s not much to report but I’ve done a little update and a bump picture anyway as I promised myself I wouldn’t miss a week.

Weekly quiz

How far along? 23 weeks

How big is baby? Baby is the same size as a grapefruit

Weight gain/loss: I’ve stayed the same this week.  I’m still 3lbs below my booking weight and unsure how far below my pre pregnancy weight I am.

Maternity clothes? I’m wearing some but I’m mostly still in normal clothes.

Stretch marks? Nope, not yet but my belly is soooo itchy!

Sleep: My sleep has been really bad this week, nausea, round ligament pains, weird dreams are all kicking in to ruin my sleep!

Best moment this week: Alistair has finally started clearing the spare room and getting it ready to decorate and make baby’s room.  There’s a long way to go but we’re getting there!

Movement: Alistair has finally felt our little girl move!  I’m definitely feeling more movement than I did at this stage with Harry.

Food cravings: Salt and vinegar Pringles, diet coke and Galaxy caramel bars.

Sickness: My face is covered with burst blood vessels again from being sick.  If anyone has any good concealer/foundation recommendations please let me know!

Have you started to show yet: Yes, it feels like a definite bump!

Belly Button in or out? In, it looks oddly wider though and a lot flatter.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I’ve been feeling a bit lower this week, I think I always feel worse when I get the burst blood vessels on my face as painting on a smile is so much harder when signs of my HG are painted all over my face.  I’m also crying a lot this week over silly little things, adverts, songs on the radio, looking at Harry’s tiny baby clothes… literally everything sets me off!

Weekly Wisdom: I’m not feeling too wise this week. In the words of Dori from Finding Nemo… ‘Just keep swimming.’  That seems to be a phrase that springs to mind a lot this pregnancy.

Milestones: No exciting milestones this week but I’m counting down the days until this time next week when I will reach my favourite pregnancy milestone!
