Bumpdate {23 weeks}

Good morning lovelies! I got up this morning to send my husband off to work and decided to stay awake -- is 10am to early for a nap? Lol

I am tired but it was wonderful to have the morning to myself to get caught up on #shereadstruth devotional and pray. (:

Now, time for this week's bumpdate:

How Far along: 23 weeks {and 4 days today}

Size Of Baby: baby v is the size of an ear of corn {or about 11 inches} and weighs over a pound!

Maternity Clothes: oh yes! Leggings, flowy dresses, and loose shirts are my friends!

Stretch Marks: got those too! Lol

Weight Gain: 15 whole pounds! Yikes!!!

Sleep: this past week was a tough one. Baby V decided it would be fun to kick my bladder all night long! As long as he doesn't kick down I sleep pretty well.

Best Moment of the Week: feeling him kick on the outside! I even saw my tummy move hehe. It doesn't happen all the time and husby has yet to feel it but its a beautiful reminder!

Movement: lots!

Cravings: sweets!!! I ate so many cookies yesterday after church! It was a little embarrassing! And I want Thai food {hoping we go this week!}

Gender: all boy!

Belly Button In or Out: in (:

Wedding Ring on or Off: last week I had to have it off for one day - I was just really swollen..... But the next day it was back on.

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: not a thing

What I Miss: in-n-out! Lol I can eat it while I am pregnant but we don't have one in Alabama and I miss it so so much!!!!

What I am Looking Forward to: another ultrasound in a few weeks!

Nursery: yesterday husby and I looked at some paint ideas! So my wheels are turning

Emotions: happy, excited, blessed, scared, and loved by God. He is just so so good and I am constantly in awe of Him and who He is. Not only during this pregnancy but with every aspect of my life.
I am not perfect but I have been saved by grace and I want to live out my faith! I want others to see it and give glory to God.

What baby is up to: all of baby v's fetal internal organs are developed and functioning well, his skin is translucent but will be getting fatter and fatter with the months to come. He also can distinguish between my voice and Martin's. He is fearfully and wonderfully made!

Baby bumps and love. - Monica
