I seriously cannot keep up with how fast this pregnancy is going! We are 23 weeks today my princess monkey!! Congratulations!! That means we are just one week away from viability! OMG! Go baby go!! 😀
It’s becoming more and more real that you really are going to be here and I’m going to have a daughter and we have a lifetime to spend together. I am beyond over the moon. Baby girl, you are a dream come true!
Here’s what you look like from the outside this week:
Symptoms: Major round ligament pain this week, sciatica, tight/tingly breasts, frequent urination, hunger, emotional/hormonal, fetal movement!!! (and you’re beginning to poke out of my belly…you get all comfy on one side or the other and there’s this big, hard ball of baby sticking out…awesome!!), vivd dreams, furry tummy
Weight Gain: 8.5lbs
Here’s what babycenter.com has to say about you this week:
Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she’s more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby’s increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
Enjoying every single moment with you, monkey! I love you so much already! Happy 23 weeks!! ♥
