But now that that's off my chest....
Compared to 23 weeks with Lizzy:
How far along: 23 weeks. I missed last week's update thanks to the new baby niece excitement (yay!).
Size of baby: A grapefruit (The Bump) or a large mango (Baby Center). In other words, 10.5 to 11.8 inches and about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.
Weight Gain: +2 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. I have no idea whether I should be counting from pre-pregnancy weight, or from my low weight since I've been pregnant. Counting from pre-pregnancy makes me feel better, so I'll go with that.
Symptoms: Nothing pregnancy related this week! I think the stitches/bee sting/getting shot have occupied most of my attention, ha!
Exercise:Yes! Justin moved the elliptical in for me this weekend, and I have now used it every morning this week, except for the one day that I was forbidden to do so because of the stitches. It's so nice.
Clothes: Some maternity, and also some non-maternity tunics and dresses that I found at Goodwill. In this week's photo, the shorts are maternity, and I have no idea about the top because the tag was cut out.
Cravings/Aversions: Chocolate and pizza. I'm refraining from those two, though I did totally stop at Taco Bell on the way home from the park today.
Movement: Yep, and Justin even got to feel a kick the other night!
Worries: Stressing about news on the mole (which I won't have until next week at the very earliest). And here's the funny part about that, which I realized in the shower this morning: I've had a number of moles removed before, and none of them were skin cancer. In fact, the one time it WAS skin cancer, it wasn't even a mole that was removed, it was a "bruise" that never went away. I don't know why I'm so stressed about it this time. Probably just because it's the first one post skin cancer. Either way, I will be glad whenever this is all over, and seriously hope its sooner rather than later.
Milestones: Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and she's hearing more and more sounds from the outside world, such as dogs barking and horns honking.
What's Different This Time: Um, we have no name. I've been fantasizing about a long leisurely dinner where Justin and I discuss names, and magically fall on one that we both LOVE but thus far, it hasn't happened.
Best moment of the week: It's a toss up between my newest niece Lyla being born, and Justin getting to feel a baby kick for the first time :)
