I'm actually 24 weeks, but these pictures are me at 23 weeks. I'm always behind on my blogging these days! Oh well...
This post is a shout out to my sister and sister in law who are pregnant also. My sister in law Beth, is due on August 12th and having a boy and my sister, Lindsey is due on November 4th and having a boy also (then there's me in the middle, October 13th, with a girl). My parents are going to go crazy, jumping from 3 grandkids to 6 in about 2 1/2 months! Beth and Lindsey are so good at posting pregnancy pictures and I'm so not. I love looking at their pictures and reading their updates, so here you go you two.
Things are good. Life is super busy and I have a really hard time keeping up, but that's life, especially when you're pregnant. I had another ultrasound last week. The first time around she was moving so much and they couldn't get a good picture of the umbilical cord, so they had me come in for another one. It was so fun!! I couldn't believe how much she has grown in a month and how much we could see. She was still moving like crazy (I'm a little nervous she might take after her brothers and not her sister). She has the cutest profile! I haven't ever had an ultrasound later like this, so I was amazed. I could have sat there and watched her all day long. I saw her yawn...so cute. The tech and I laughed and said she better be tired after all of that moving around. Her toes and fingers and lips and everything just look perfect, including the umbilical cord. It was a fun experience.
I'm still really tired, but I'm able to keep some late nights again, which is good since that seems to be the only time I get anything done! I'm getting a lot of braxton hicks contractions this time around. I don't usually get those until the last month, but here they are. They kinda hurt too. :( That just started with in the last week. My appetite still isn't the best, which I'm bummed out about. I'm usually a champion eater by now, but food just isn't appealing these days...I think it's because I actually have to take TIME to eat...who knew??? A little side note that I think is funny, is that EVERY TIME I sit down at the computer she starts moving and kicking like crazy. I think she's warning me that once she's here my computer days are going to be limited. So I better get it all in while I can, which means plenty of scrapbooking. I'm going to have many late nights getting some books caught up. There's nothing like a baby coming to get you motivated!
Here's me and my belly at 23 weeks.
