Pregnancy Update | 23 Weeks

It's been a while since I've posted any kind of pregnancy update. So in an effort to help myself remember more details about this second pregnancy, here's where we are at at 23 weeks.

Today I am actually 23 weeks and 4 days along. This picture is the most recent one I have- I was 21.5 weeks pregnant.



How Far Along: 23 weeks 4 days

Weight Gain: 6 lbs

Gender: GIRL!

Cravings: None really. My appetite has just recently picked up where I find myself getting hungrier than usual. I'm eating an afternoon snack more, which is not something I typically do. I'm still trying very hard to eat healthy and thankfully- with the abundance of produce during the summer, it hasn't been so hard. Canteloupe, grapes, cucumbers and tomatoes with vinegar, and watermelon have been almost daily things I'm eating. Which is also why I think I'm gaining less weight than I did with Landon.

We haven't made any steps in preparing a nursery for little miss. I've slowly come up with ideas on how I'd like to decorate. We also have to move Landon into the larger/back bedroom so that the baby will be closer to us and in the smaller front bedroom. We need to order a dresser and a chair/ottoman, which we're planning on tackling sometime in August/September. Thankfully, since we just moved in we won't need to paint her room so it's just decorating and setting things up.

Symptoms: still feeling great over all. having some sciatic pain in my hips and reflux at night. Trying to stay as active as possible but I'm fairly tired at the end of the day.

Little girl is SUPER active, which makes me laugh and also makes me worried that she's going to be a little firecracker when she makes her entrance into the world. Every night light clock work she has a dance party around midnight and then settles down to go to sleep. :)

I'm nesting, which I probably was even before we found out I was pregnant. Its probably a combination of wanting to get projects done at the house and that combined with nesting has put our to do list in overdrive. John has been working super hard around the house finishing things that we didn't do before we moved in, and it's all looking great. This week we're staining/treating our deck, we've ordered porch furniture, he's building our dining room table, and we hung some curtains! We're getting there!

And last but not least...baby girl has a name! We're naming this sweet pumpkin Avery Kate Perdue. None of the names have any significance, we just like them and thought it fit. :)

I'm in disbelief that I'm just a few weeks shy of the third trimester, and while I am so excited anxious to hold our sweet girl in November, I'm a little panicked at how quickly it is approaching! We can't wait to meet her!
