How far along? 23 weeks + 6 days
Weight gain: +13.4 pounds
Sleep: still sleeping great, but Mike & I both have been waking up randomly at 4AM recently (maybe this is in prep of getting up all hours of the night with a wee one?)
Maternity Clothes: wearing them mostly (or Mike's slinky workout clothes) -- however, I was surprised when I put on one of my "non-pregnancy skirts" for work & it still zipped!
Best moment(s) this week: helping Mike put together Baby M's crib (Thanks again, CH & Eric!) AND Mike really feeling the baby move - he's been reading Cannery Row (one of his all time favorites) out loud at night to us & the baby loves it. It'll wiggle all around while he's reading!
Food cravings: still nothing
Symptoms: still having bad, bad heartburn (and therefore popping Tums like they're candy) -- I'll only be OK with this if Baby M has a head full of hair
Gender prediction: boy lately
Labor signs: none
Belly button in or out: in-ish
Looking forward to: tannin' this baby bump at the beach
Random facts about little one: Little one is between 10.5-11.8" long & between 12.7 - 20.8 oz (I know...that's a big gap) -- or roughly the size of a grapefruit!
