My Baby Story: 23 Weeks.
I will keep this short and sweet today. The focal point of this week was purchasing the baby's bed and bedding. Also, another focal point was all the beautiful stuff and clothes my mom bought for her future grand-child. She will be mailing them soon.
How Far Along: 23 weeks.
Total Weight Gain: 8 1/2 lbs.
Maternity Clothes? Not yet, but I have relied on my loose tops, elastic waist skirts, high-waisted skirts, babydoll-style clothes and comfortable dresses.
Best moment this week: Buying the baby's bed this morning. One large thing crossed off our list plus the bed is simple and beautiful. We also got all the bedding.
Miss Anything? Yes, I miss some normal October weather. While out today I got sweaty and hot. It was 85 degrees. That is not normal for October 6th.
Movement: Yes, I have felt several kicks. I am actually feeling little kicks, now.
Food Cravings: Not as many as last week. I crave some fried foods, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese food, sushi and such. And I am always craving some type of pasta with red sauce. I did treat myself to some Sweet & Sour chicken this week, though.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I have gotten better with tolerating the different food and smoke smells, so not really.
Gender: For now, we know and you will soon, I promise.
Labor Signs: Nowhere near.
Belly button in or out? In, very in. Looks the same as before.
Wedding rings on or off? On & loose.
Happy or Moody most of the time:Happy about the baby. Moody because I got sick and I hate being sick. I also hate having to sneeze all day and having a runny nose.
Looking forward to: Shopping for the baby both myself and through my mom, since she is buying most of baby's wardrobe through United States.
