23 weeks! Taken 7/16/09

How far along?   23 weeks and 1 day
Total weight gain/loss:  Gained about 8 or 9 lbs.  
Maternity clothes?  Wearin' em and lovin' em!  The waistband on some of my favorite capris is getting a little tight though, and I have to keep pulling them up because they fall down! 
Stretch marks?   zero
Sleep:   I wake up quite a few times at night, which is annoying, but it's okay.
Best moment this week:   I actually had two people  (strangers) ask me how far along I was!  I guess I'm getting big enough for people to assume there's a baby in there!
Movement:   Oh yeah!  I think she must have flipped over though because the kicks are in a different spot now.  Her feet are still on the same side of my belly, but she is now practicing her karate moves on my internal organs--fun times! :)  She is getting strong!
Cravings:  Nah
Gender:   Girl!
Labor Signs:  None, but I have been having braxton hicks contractions.  I had my first one at 21 weeks.  They're pretty uncomfortable.  I went to the doctor this week to get checked out and they said that everything looked good.  
Belly Button in or out?  Still in, but I can see the bottom of it!  
What I miss:   Sushi and beer
What I am looking forward to:   Another u/s on July 27th!  I also have my glucose test that day.
Weekly Wisdom:   I feel so blessed to be a woman, so that I can experience the joy of having another life inside of me.  It's so surreal.  I can't even begin to imagine what it will be like to hold this child in my arms for the first time.  I thank God daily for His blessings.
Milestones:  The 14th of July marked exactly 4 months until she arrives!
