Week 23

How Far Along: 23 weeks (actually I'm 24 weeks tomorrow but I like to recap the week before)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 18 pounds. Whoa. Mama.

Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants. Shirts are a combination of regular and maternity. I think maternity makes me look bigger, but they are more comfortable.

Gender: BOY!! Eli Tree

Movement: About the same.I feel him every now and then, and feel him quite a bit at night when I'm very still in bed.

Sleep: Sleep is ok. I usually get pretty bad heartburn shortly after lying down and have to pop a couple of tums. Once that passes I sleep through the night pretty well.

What I miss: Deli meat. I went to the dr again this week and asked her about this and she told me to still avoid it. I just wanted to double check. She is also pregnant and says she doesn't eat it either.

Cravings: Nothing in particular.

Symptoms: Heartburn and indigestion have hit an all time high and don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I honestly get heartburn from drinking water. Tum's smoothies have become my new BFF.

Best Moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat again. I always love to hear his sweet little heartbeat. It was 149 this week. I wish that I could get an ultrasound done every dr visit.

And my favorite husband quote of the week:

On Saturday we were cleaning the house like crazy, getting it somewhat "baby ready" when Luke randomly looked at me and said:

"Wow, I cannot believe you are pregnant"

Not sure if he knows, but I've been pregnant for several months now. Boys are a little slow when it comes to this sort of thing I guess. :-)

I love the Luke quote this week! Silly husbands.

You are so freaking cute! I hope I can be as un-whale-like as you are while pregnant. I'm jealous already.

Your husband is hilarious, by the way.

I guess I don't know what's a normal amount of weight since my mom gained 55 lbs with both me and my brother. I have now learned that's rare and not always healthy. Haha. And Tums smoothies are the best!

You look great! Love the name. You know you can eat deli meat if you heat it up first? That's what I was always told. Kills the bacteria.

Stephanie Marie said...

I had no idea about deli meat being off limits! I'll have to file that info away for later.

And my husband is still surprised that we're married so I have a feeling he'll be the same way about a pregnancy haha

You can keep your baby's heartbeat forever! If you have a Build-A-Bear store near you, go in and buy the sound that you can record. Then, take it to your Dr. and record the heartbeat. Then, take it to Build-A-Bear and stuff it into a little friend for baby Eli! It will be a treasure to him as he grows up. Let me know if you don't have a Build-A-Bear and I'll help you out. You HAVE to do this :o)

Oh yeah, looking GREAT!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Haha, Luke's quotes crack me up!

Jess said...

You are so stinking cute with your belly! I'm going to be a whale when I'm preggo, I just know it.

I love Luke's quotes, but this has to be my favorite. So cute that it just randomly hit him..... his wife is pregnant with his baby. Had to be a little surreal.

Chiara said...

Okay innocent girl here who has never been pregnant and loves deli meat. Why can't you eat it?

Becca said...

I love your sweater - and just your cute self! And I also love your husband's funny quotes - I feel as though he and Adam could be friends :-)

Megan,

You look so adorable.

Luke is one funny boy.

I hope you both have a beautiful Thanksgiving.

Love you friend,
Dawn

Ashley said...

Yay Eli!! Love the name :) You are looking gorgeous as always! I think staying away from deli meat was on of the hardest things. I ended up eating it towards the end, I just couldn't do it anymore, haha. Luke's quotes get me every time!

You look so cute & you in the Harry Potter outfit (below) is hilarious! Funny girl. I will never forget the indigestion/heartburn that pregnancy brought...Amelia may be an only child because of it. So bad.

This is fabulous...love the colors!!!! I love all the design it is so artistic. It's perfect if for the pregnant women. . I hope I can have this type of clothes. Simple jewelry can give you that unique touch that can set you apart from the infinite pool of other women. This is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

She is so pretty & looks great. It’s so nice to see a pregnant woman dress with style, versus sloppy-floppy or in spandex with their stomach hanging out. Maternity outfits especially for plus sized women are very in fashion now so more and more designers are concentrating here. Thanks for sharing...
