Here's a look back on week 23...
How I'm feeling: The belly seems to be growing almost daily. Sleep is mostly good and I typically have to get up just once a night to use the restroom. My low back was pretty cranky with me this week, so I called my massage therapist for an appointment. I had to lay on my side during the massage, but other than that, it was just as relaxing as always.
Baby: is the size of a grapefruit (~10.5 to 11.8 inches, 12.7 to 20.8 ounces) and is moving a ton.
Weight gained: 14 lbs
What I'm wearing: For a few weeks now, jackets have been getting a bit tighter, but I've started wearing them unzipped most of the time because they are more comfortable that way.
I ordered a few pair of LOFT maternity jeans (50% off!), which should arrive soon. It will be so nice to have another pair or two to wear.
Baby preparations: I searched for cribs online, bought a new pillow for between my knees as I'm trying not to buy a Snoogle, and I started working on our baby registry, which is harder than it seems.
Cravings: As noted above, I may or may not be craving chocolate these days. While I'm normally a sweets girl, I rarely give in to full on treats. This week, I purchased some chocolate crackle cookies at our local market and then a few days ago, I bought some Coconut Bliss dark chocolate ice cream. Yum.
Tell me, how's your week going? What's the best thing you've made this week?
Meal of the week for us? These meatballs over rice noodles and zucchini.
