{23 Weeks and Some Michael Jackson Shoes}

This blog is 3 days late because it has been a crazy week! I haven't even had anyone around to take a picture of my she-bump.  My husband was able to snap the pic on the right before we left for work this morning.  I'm just going to go ahead and address it because I know I'm going to get questions.  I would like to introduce you all to my Michael Jackson shoes.  I wanted a pair of silver oxfords for about 2 years and I finally got some for Christmas from my parents.  They are just as fabulous as I imagined. 

How far along? 23 weeks (and errr... 3 days)
Total weight gain? 13 pounds (Yikes!)
Maternity clothes? Just maternity pants really. I am making regular tops work.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? This has continued to be good for me. I have been having minor leg cramps at night but I am usually able to catch them before they become a full blown cramp.
Best moment this week? We had our inspection for our first home last week. It went really well and we are thankful the inspector thinks the house is in great condition. In other words, there wasn't anything incredibly alarming that would keep the deal from going through. I will share some pictures once we get all moved in and settled. We may not have any furniture yet, though. :)

Saturday, we went to Buy Buy Baby to register for a couple baby showers I have coming up in April and May. I was glad I had done most of the research and registering online earlier in the week because we were completely overwhelmed with just the 5/6 things we were unsure about. (i.e. bottles, car seats, strollers, baby carriers, breast pump accessories, etc.) We went ahead and purchased the mattress for bambino because we have the crib and want to start getting things set up upon moving in our new house. Side note: you better believe I had my husband take full advantage of one of the perks of being pregnant. 


I snapped this picture of Tyler carrying his baby girl's mattress out of the store. He looked so cute and proud. Fatherhood is definitely going to suit him. :)

Miss anything? I miss not being able to wear all of my clothes. I have always loved fashion and style and I refuse to spend a bunch of money on maternity clothing when I am only going to be pregnant for 17 more weeks or less. I have had to get really creative. 
Food cravings? This week, my food cravings and hunger have kicked in. I was wondering when that would start because my appetite always seemed normal even though I have continued to gain weight at a normal rate. I just HAD to have Chick-Fil-A's chicken noodle soup Friday night and Saturday, I had to have a fruit and granola yogurt parfait. I didn't care where it was from just as long as I had it! 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Public restrooms still. I had lunch with a friend of mine who is also pregnant (2-3 weeks ahead of me). We decided to use the restroom at Panera Bread before we left and I walked into the wrong stall at the wrong time. I almost lost my entire lunch. Why can't people clean up after themselves??? It's nasty and inconsiderate to the pregnant race! :)
Gender? Girl, and in fact…I am really starting to have fun putting together what outfits we have already. Baby Gap and Zara Kids are definitely becoming two of my favorites. And you can't have a baby and not purchase at least one pair of Freshly Picked moccasins

Onesie and sweater: Baby Gap
Moccasins: Freshly Picked

Labor signs? No
Movement? Yes. She is a lunatic. :P
Symptoms? My back got a little sore towards the end of last week so I went straight to the Chiropractor. I love going. I swear by them. Also, I feel huge. I know I'm not but I am not used to carrying around extra weight and fluid. I had a little breakdown about it on Saturday and had to have my husband, mother and sister-in-law talk me down. *Sigh*…it will all be worth it in the end.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy except for Saturday morning. It was not a good morning. I couldn't get my pants on. 'Nuff said.
Looking forward to? Ordering all the remaining nursery furniture online! I am ordering on March 1st!  I didn't want to order it and then it ship to my parents address because we haven't moved in yet. I think if I order it March 1st, we should be able to put the shipping address as our new home. 

Also, we have our 24 week appointment on Monday, March 3rd. We will have another ultrasound so hopefully I will have another couple of pictures to share.

Until next week,
