Baby Diary Take Two: 23 Weeks

23 Weeks

Dear Sweet Pea, 

Cozy? Comfortable?  You seem like it.  You wake up mostly at night now to do your exercising and wow do you move.  I guess it is finally quiet and peaceful so you don't know what else to do but play around.  I know you will understand your Daddy and I, but will you also recognize your brother's voice? He loves to pat you and kiss my belly; "kiss baby" he says.  I cannot wait to see you both together, it is something I have looked forward to since the very beginning.  I feel larger by the day so you must be getting larger too.  It is hard for me to believe that you will be here in just a few months now, we are even almost through with the second trimester. I am already looking forward to going to the doctor every two weeks.  There is so much to get done but I know it will all happen. I am looking forward to washing all your things and getting your room ready. I will feel much better seeing all your tiny clothes waiting for you.  Daddy loves to rub my big belly now, I hope you can feel all our love in there.  

Many kisses,

  • Leftovers
  • BBQ (the smell still makes me gag!)
  • Fruit
  • Raspberry hand pies with vanilla ice cream
  • Salt, on everything
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Cinnamon raisin toast
  • Sloppy Joes
  • I was doing really well with the weight gain (up 6 pounds! yay) until the middle of the week and all food at lunch and dinner just seemed ick.  Making lunch is awful and I have no motivation to cook dinner.  Going out isn't even appetizing.  So frustrating.  So I'm back down to only +4lbs.  Just in time for my OB appointment this week though. I have got to gain more! This is so frustrating, I hate having to force food down all day long.
