oh baby | twenty-three weeks

how far along? | 23 weeks

due date: january 14, 2016

baby's size | a grapefruit

gender | a baby boy!
 
feeling | still feeling great! it's amazing having energy again and hardly any food aversions. we have been listening to a lot of pandora together in the mornings/evenings {norah, bob dylan, and classical new age piano music are his favorites} ... i think he's swaying to the music as we dance along. 

maternity clothes | a little of both- definitely needing more maternity clothes for teaching. what shops do you love most? i have searched pink blush, old navy, and gap so far... heading to destination maternity soon. i have heard great things... 
 
workouts | walks and pre-natal yoga - need to start arms/weights again

sleep | no complaints! ever since school started, i completely crash at night. 
cravings | still citrus and ice cold water {i was like this before pregnancy though?!}

fun facts | his face is fully formed now - just needs a little extra fat to fill it out. {can't wait to kiss that sweet face!} he's listening to our voices and my heartbeat - and even to loud sounds like cars honking and dogs barking {and energetic middle school students!!}  

movement | i feel like he becomes more active by the day! at night when i am really still- i can feel him go wild and i love it.
miss anything | a glass of pumpkin beer on a fall day while watching football

best moment of the week | putting together his cute little crib last saturday afternoon- we love it. picturing him in it is so exciting!!

looking forward to | a weekend with friends - a birthday party, a german oktoberfest and panthers tailgating sunday 

how's dad? he is still the best support - he loves baby and i so much. we are so grateful for him. 

next appointment | tomorrow :) i was up two pounds at my last appointment {19 weeks} i am pretty sure baby boy is way bigger/my weight is going up. i will let you all know!

  3. You're in the sweet spot of pregnancy! Soak it all in! Destination Maternity is a great store. They have a wide variety of items from several maternity lines, but some brands/items are pretty pricey. The Motherhood Maternity stores are a bit more wallet-friendly, and you might be able to find a Motherhood outlet store.

  6. Congrats to you! I don't know personally what it's like to be pregnant, but my sister has had three children and there is nothing that gets me more excited than that whole process. Watching the baby grow, picking out clothes and outfits. Going to Babies R Us tends to make me all warm and fuzzy inside haha. Happy pregnancy!
