23 Weeks

Total weight gain: 11 lbs
Baby’s heart beat: Staying at a steady 155 bpm at last Thursday’s appointment.
Biggest craving this week: Either banana or apples with peanut butter!
Energy level: Crazy good! I have felt so energized lately and I love it! Last night hubs and I went on a bike ride and I felt like I could keep going and going! And then last night I stayed up until 10:30 pm and then even after we went to bed I continued to chat away to my trying-to-fall-asleep husband until close to 11 pm! I’m wondering how long this energy spurt will last because it feels too good to be true.
How clothes fit: Outfits are starting to frustrate me and I feel like I rotate now between the same 5 shirts and 2 pairs of pants that I know fit. I probably need to get some more maternity shirts soon because most of my clothes are just not feeling right these days. I also want to get some cute maxi dresses for the upcoming summer months!
Movement: I’m starting to feel those weird full body rolls that make me stop and think, “what the crap was that?!” Sometimes it feels like everything inside me is shifting and moving and it’s an awkward combination of feeling cool and gross at the same time.
Random: My belly button is looking deformed these days, not yet popped, but no longer normal. Instead it is a weird, thin, closed slit that almost looks like it’s going to pop every time I have a full belly. At this point I’m just waiting to wake up and wham! I have an outie.

    Hi! Lauren’s friend again… the belly rolls are soooo weird and totally stop you in your tracks, but so cool! You look great! I wish I had a long torso… I feel pretty stretched out! I’m almost 39 weeks so any day now : ) I felt my best in the weeks in the 20s too so enjoy it!

      Thanks! 🙂 The belly rolls are definitely weird, but it’s so cool when you remember it’s baby! So awesome that you’re 39 weeks! Good luck in the next few weeks! Do you have a blog? I would love to see pics of the new babe! 🙂
