23 Week Pregnancy Update.
HOW FAR ALONG:
Perhaps the funniest symptom right now is my ability to cry on command. Luckily it’s mainly of the happy tears variety, but if I so much as see a sappy commercial or Facebook video, I cry ugly tears. My emotional tendencies seem to be related to my excitement over the gender of the baby (which I’ll discuss a bit more below!)
I’m also still having headaches, but they seem to be leveling off. In addition, I get winded more easily, so doing any exercise other than walking is basically out of the picture right now. Other than those symptoms and the typical pregnancy exhaustion, I’m doing pretty well! I know others who have had to contend with very serious complications when pregnant so I feel lucky that my symptoms are relatively minimal.
No strong aversions right now!
I announced it in this post, but we are having a girl!! I know I sound like a broken record here, but I am so over the moon excited, and basically get teary eyed at anything that reminds me of baby girl at this point. (See confession above!) I’ve teared up in the baby girl aisle at Target, while browsing Gap.com, and basically any time I see a cute picture of a baby on Instagram.
So far I haven’t done much damage in the shopping department, but I have definitely been researching some cute baby girl clothes for cyber monday sales!! Also, I would like to say that if any of you have any favorite baby girl brands, whether it’s an Etsy shop, a local boutique, or just Walmart, please let me know! I am essentially clueless in the girl dept, as my current shopping repertoire for baby George consists of Target, Old Navy, and Walmart for jammies and basics.
Honestly, no specific cravings right now! My insatiable hunger from the first trimester seems to have died down (my thighs and boobs are breathing a happy sigh of relief lol), but I still have to eat every few hours or I get dizzy.
Thank you for reading my 23 week pregnancy update! I know this kind of post isn’t everyones cup of tea, but I’m genuinely fascinated with reading pregnancy updates on other blogs!
