23 weeks!

I'm 23 weeks now which has cruised by incredibly fast. One month ago tomorrow we found out this bean is a boy already. Crazy I've known for a whole month.

Had my appt Monday, I've FINALLY gained weight. I was up 8 pounds but then lost 2 over the course of the next 8 weeks. Boy did I make up for that. I gained 7 in 4 weeks!! OOPS. But that puts me at 13 gained total which is right on. If I gain a pound a week for the remainder of the pregnancy that would put me at at 30 pounds exactly, some weeks I'll gain more and then usually the last 4 weeks you don't gain or you gain and then lose. So I'm expecting gaining between 30-35 pounds this pregnancy! I gained 39 with Emerson though, REALLY hope I don't gain that again!

Anyway, heart rate was 158 and my fundal height was measuring 22 weeks so baby is growing perfectly!

I can still wear my regular pants too, some button, some I need the hair tie trick with. But I'm super thankful for that. With Emerson I was in maternity jeans 100% by 13/14 weeks!
