week 23 bump update and letters for Reagan

I know I know, I'm super late on my bump update this week, but my camera battery had died and I couldn't find my charger. It's been missing for awhile and I was completely stumped at where it could be. When my sister asked why I hadn't posted my weekly post I told her my problem and she proceeded to tell me she had 2 chargers and she's wondering why she had 2. Darn sister stole my charger and didn't realize it! I'm just happy to have my charger back! Onto the bump update :)

Bump Update
How far along? 23 weeks

Total weight gain: I am not caring anymore how much I've gained. I'm gaining exactly the amount that baby Rae needs! So no more looking when they weigh me. I will look though at my last weigh in to know how much I gained for the whole pregnancy.

Maternity clothes?  FULL on maternity clothes now. Texas has been having silly weather, it's time for warm weather, but it's still chilly, so I can't wait till it's warm so I can sport dresses and flip flops 24/7.

Stretch marks? nope! Mom didn't have any, so I don't expect to get any. I heard stretch marks are all in the genetics.

    Sleep: I decided to put the snoogle away for a bit and it's actually been helping me sleep! Of course, I'm up 3-4 times a night to pee, but it's just preparing me for the near future :)

Best moment this week: watching Kyle interact with Rae. He would talk and she would kick and it was seriously the sweetest thing I've ever watched. I couldn't help but cry as I watch the love of my life play with his daughter.

Miss anything? being able to work out. I've been having alot of pain for the past 2 weeks and we couldn't figure out why. Went in for an ultrasound and it turns out I have fluid on my kidney. So the pain I've been feeling is from that. I can't be on my feet long or it really starts to hurt so I've had to stop working out. I don't like it at all. Fortunately, Rae is completely fine! Fluid levels are great, movement is great, she's all around great! :)

Food cravings: Craving Chick-fila constantly! I could eat it for every meal! And love fruit :)

Anything making you queasy or sick? nope! I think I've finally moved passed the nausea! Wahoo!

Gender: Pink

Labor signs: nope

Symptoms: Swollen ankles (a new one), winded easily, sensitive skin (gets a sun burn even with 70 spf), crampy (she's growing a lot lately), and of course, peeing constantly! I can't get in the car without going before we leave. Kyle always remind me to pee before we leave, just like a kid! And the newest symptom is leaking. Haha. Apparently my poor bladder is just not strong as it's being smooshed by my uterus. 

Belly button in or out?  In! And I don't think it will ever pop. It's the deepest inney ever!

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: I am happy! ALL the time!

Looking forward to: getting the nursery started! Kyle is painting it this weekend and our first shower is May 17 so I can't wait to start getting everything put together! I promise to post pictures as it progresses

  4. I remember Conner and Ben reacting to Tim's touch and his voice and it was one of the most exciting milestones of pregnancy. Eat it all up! It is so wonderful.
