23 weeks!

Baby Baby #2- 23 weeks. 16 more to go!

How far along:  22 weeks!

Size of baby:  Our baby is the size of a pomegranate. (I've actually never seen a pomegranate this size, maybe there are some in the Amazon or Texas that are this big but I've never seen it!)
Our baby is about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs 12.7-20.8 ounces.

Weight Gain: 8 pounds. But to be real honest I have been at 8.5 half of the week. I just got lucky this morning. I only admitted that so if next week I am at 9 or 9.5 pounds it won't sound too crazy!

Maternity Clothes: I wear what fits. Mostly maternity. I still need to get some maternity leggings.

Gender: We did not find out.I just keep telling myself it could go either way! It has to be one or the other. I washed and hung all of Lucy's old clothes and put them away in the nursery. If the baby is a girl we are set. If it is a boy we are going shopping on the way home from the hospital!

Movement: I love feeling our baby kick! It is the most amazing feeling! Jonathan and I lay in bed at night and watch it move and kick!

Food Cravings/Aversions: Apples and Bananas.

What I miss: Caffeine. I am getting so tired lately. I trick myself in the morning and have two cups of decaf and pretend like it's regular coffee. 

Sleep:   My hips hurt at night. I am constantly switching sides!

Symptoms: I get tired during the day. I've had tons of energy up until this point!

Best Moment of the Week: I cleaned out the nursery this week and put all of Lucy's old clothes away in the drawers and closet.

What I look forward to: Naming the baby. ( I should really get on that) Start decorating the nursery!
