23 Week Pregnancy Update

23 weeks pregnant

23 weeks pregnant! Suddenly everything feels like it’s slowing down. I think because I’ve been waiting for so long to find out what we’re having, and I still don’t know yet! We have our 23-week appointment tomorrow, I’m so excited!

How far along? 23 weeks 1 day

How big is Baby?  30 cm / 500  g

Total weight gain/loss? I’m still hovering around the 15 lb mark. Trying to eat mindfully and be a bit healthier.

Maternity clothes? Still doing the same. I have my Tummy Trimmer Denim, one pair of maternity jeans, dresses and leggings. I’m definitely getting there, but I’m not so big that I can’t make what I have work for a bit longer.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? It’s okay. Not good, but not bad. Hubby has been home from work for a few weeks, and he tends to stay up late. This somehow makes me stay up a bit later than I normally would, too, which probably isn’t good.

Best moment this week? Finally finishing my eyebrows. They make this tired, pregnant lady feel pretty again. (I’ll be posting about that soon.)

Miss Anything? Still missing that nice glass of red wine that I’ve been craving.

Movement? All day every day!

Food cravings? Nothing in particular at this point. I’m over the salads and I’m over Chipotle too.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope. Aside from the kicking and the general tiredness, I don’t actually feel pregnant, if that makes sense. I feel pretty normal.

Have you started to show yet? While I’m still not huge, if I relax my core, I am definitely unmistakably pregnant.

Gender? We will finally find out tomorrow, I don’t think I could have waited any longer!

Labor Signs? Definitely nothing yet.

Belly Button in or out? In, but starting to flatten out a little, but I’ve never had an outie.

Rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time? If moody means emotional, maybe a little bit. I always have cried easily, it got worse with my first baby and never got better. I think over the last few months it’s gotten worse, though. I’m such a crybaby.

Looking forward to? Finally finding out of this baby beansprout is a little boy or little girl! And maybe doing a bit of shopping (especially for a girl).

Anyone expecting or have children? If you’re expecting or have babies, did you find out the gender? While surprises are fun, I’m already driving myself crazy not being able to plan ahead for this baby. Tell me a story in the comments! I’d love to chat with some other mamas!
