22/23 Weeks Pregnant

(I am actually 23 weeks in this picture, accidentally missed week 22!)

How far along?  23 weeks, 1 day
Size of baby: as big as an eggplant! Almost 12 inches long
What is the baby up to this week?: Getting chunkier hopefully. Learning how to breathe air.
Total weight gain/loss? up a lb 135/136 137 Before pregnancy
Maternity clothes? of course! My mom visited me this past weekend and bought me adorable black maternity shorts and a couple tops from target
Stretch marks? none yet fingers crossed, my mom never had them so good news if they are genetic! 
Sleep? pretty good on sleep, I can tell the weight is getting heavier and it is kinda harder to roll out of bed than it used to be!
Best moment last week? Finding out that we are having a little GIRL!!!! and of course spending time with family and friends. 
Movement?  oh yes! Lucy loves to move around all day long. Especially at night.
Food cravings? nothing bizarre, I always crave french fries but lately I want them bad
Gender? GIRL!!!!! PINK!!!!! GLITTER!!!!!! HAIR BOWS!!!!!! GIRL!!!!!!
Labor signs? Nope
Belly button in/out? OUT! Matt loves to giggle at how ridiculous this puppy pops out.
What I miss: Running without cramping up, I've been able to jog a little here and there but mostly walks is all I can manage. Also sleeping on my back
What I am looking forward to: Meeting her! Now that we know it is a little girl it is all becoming so much more real. I am also looking forward to putting together our amazing new jogging stroller that our Uncle Martin so graciously purchased for us. We have such a loving family and feel so blessed to receive such amazing gifts for our little one on the way.
Milestones: Two ladies at Starbucks giving me "the look" and smiling at me and this belly. More people asking about her.
Other Symptoms: Cramping occasionally, having to pee more. Nothing bad I can't complain I'm liking this second trimester!
