23 weeks!

How far along? 23 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: It's going up...that's all I know!

Maternity clothes? Yep

Stretch marks? No new ones yet...

Sleep: My arms and hands have been falling asleep alot when I lay on my side...

Best moment this week: Getting the kids a pool to play in! It's been way too hot!! :)

Movement: I'm starting to feel him rolling around, along with his normal kicks and jabs!

Food cravings: I'm still craving salt...and I finally got my santa fe chicken salad from applebee's :) It was just as good as I'd remembered it!

Gender: I'm assuming he's still a boy...should I just keep this answer every week? I'm pretty sure he won't morph into a girl! ;)

Labor Signs: None.

Belly button in or out? In...but it's stretching out.

What I miss: Being able to sleep on my stomach.

What I am looking forward to: Mike being home for a 4 day weekend!!

Weekly Wisdom: Don't fall in the hole in your front yard! It's not fun!

Milestones: I was able to see him kicking through my shirt!

How your baby's growing:

Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With his sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that he's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see him squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing him for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze him when he hears them outside the womb.
