Pregnancy Update – 23 Weeks!

June 11, 2012

Instead of sharing a recipe with you today, I thought I’d share a update on my pregnancy.  I’m in my 23rd week, which is almost 6 months!  It’s crazy how fast time has flied.  Before I knew it, my stomach was growing bigger and bigger every day.  It was probably around my 20th week that my stomach really popped out.  Before that I had a bump, but nothing big enough to tell I was really pregnant.  Now you can definitely tell I’m pregnant {unless I’m wearing a sweatshirt!}.
 
Thankfully I have had a wonderful pregnancy!  Other than a couple expectant changes, I have felt perfectly normal.  The biggest change for me has been sleeping.  Sleeping is just not comfortable anymore.  I find myself waking up multiple times during the night to turn over to my other side.  The way I make up for that is that I make sure I sleep at least 7 hours a night.  That way I’m rested when I wake up in the morning.  
 
As far as my diet, I have had no weird pregnancy cravings.  I thought I’d have some type of craving, but I have really haven’t craved anything out of the ordinary.  I’m eating pretty healthy, while still enjoying food and not holding back.  I have, of course, gained a good amount of weight, but it’s really only showing in my belly {at least that’s what people tell me! haha}.  I think it’s because I haven’t gone crazy with what I eat, and I still workout about 5 days a week.  But I can tell you this, my clothes just does not fit the same anymore.  I can’t wear almost 70% of my wardrobe.  And if they do fit, they just aren’t comfortable.  So, I pretty much live in a basic tank-top or tee, and my leggings.  I haven’t had to get maternity clothes yet, but I’m sure that’s coming soon!
That’s it for now :).  Thank you so much for letting me share this with you!
Oh, and the picture above is just me on a normal day.  I was going to get all dolled up, with my hair and makeup done and a pretty dress.  But I figured I’d just show you how I am every day – No makeup and a basic white tee.
 
Be back tomorrow with a great recipe :).

PS – Our little boy was kicking so much while I was writing this.  He must like this blog as much as I do!

    I think he was kicking because he wants to play soccer! :)
    Or maybe because he wants to come out and play with his FAVORITE AUNT…. Me.
