As the Bump Grows: Week 23

April 28, 2014 As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 6

Week 23 has brought with it some unsure news. Results from last week’s Level 2 ultrasound still didn’t give me any answers. From a medical professional standpoint, my risk is very low, but there’s always a chance something could be/go wrong with BG3. I’m hoping when I see my OB this week I can request a blood test that will give me more answers because I hate the “not knowing” part. I know I’m being a bit vague, but I don’t want to say anything certain until I know for sure and I definitely try not to voice it out loud because that makes it real and my heart just can’t take this right now.

So, anyways, BG3 has been very active this month. Feeling her kick and move around is definitely one of the highlights of my day.

And now for the belly shot:


Yep, that’s one heck of a pregnant belly right there!

Baby Size: Baby weighs as much as a Large Mango – 1.5lb, 11in
Gender: Girl!
Movement: So much so, I feel like she’s tumbling and jumping around in there!
Weight Gained: Still haven’t replaced my scale & forgot to check when I went to Target yesterday (LOL), but I’m guessing around 3lbs.
New Pregnancy Symptoms: I’ve had some minor episodes of feet swelling here and there, but nothing as bad as in the past. The pelvic pain and back aches are getting worse though.
Cravings/Aversions: I had mac and cheese for a couple days there (tasted SO GOOD!) and I had a serious craving for Wendy’s one day, but that’s about it.
Sleep Changes: The pelvic pain is definitely worse at night when I’m tossing and turning. It hurts like hell to change position or get up, which I remember from my last pregnancy, on that happened towards the end. Looks like I’ll be dealing with this for the next four months anyways.
How I’m Feeling: I’m good. I’ve been mostly positive and upbeat. I still feel the blues from time to time, but it’s getting better.
Anything Else:I’m enjoying being pregnant, eating whatever I want, and just spending time with my family. What could be better?

Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!

    Aww I love seeing these posts! And you look adorable! And wow your belly looks like mine was at 33 weeks haha – but I hear you get a belly much faster with a 2nd and 3rd. But you look like you’re doing great and kicking is what I miss the most! Hopefully all is well with the test I will send good wishes your way! 🙂

      Thank you! Lol, yeah, I think it’s partly due to the fact that I was already a little heavy before I got pregnant (I was about to start working out again to lose weight, lol). And thanks for your well wishes. Here’s hoping!
