Bump Update: Week 23


How far along? 23 weeks

Total weight gain: 16 lbs according to my last appointment.

Maternity clothes? Maternity/nursing sleep bras to bed, sleeping with my belly wedge, Bellabands, and maternity shirts. Just broke out my maternity jeans and nursing bras! My boobs literally just got huge all of a sudden!

Stretch marks? Nope

Best moment this week: Spending time with my mom and sister who came up this weekend. We had so much fun and shared so many laughs!

Miss anything? Sleeping comfortably.

Movement: I have been feeling TONS of movement. Especially at night when I’m trying to sleep and my bladder is getting squashed.

Food cravings: Sweets

Gender: It’s a girl!!!!!!

Labor signs: No.

Symptoms: Frequent urination and on Tuesday evening  at work, I had some bleeding. It was enough blood to really give me a scare and reminded me of my period. I called my OBGYN and she said to immediately come to labor and delivery at the hospital to be checked. It was a very scary situation and thank goodness everything was perfect with baby girl. They did many tests and checks on her and I. Apparently, I had a bacterial infection that causes bleeding and was prescribed an antibiotic to take 3x a day for a week.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but it was emotional this week after that scare.

Looking forward to: Visiting my parents at their house this Saturday for lunch and dinner.

Workouts: I had to refrain from exercise until Monday. On Monday, I began my prenatal squat challenge! Also, walked with my little girl at the PSU arbortetum

Other: Recently, I have been in crazy nesting mode by cleaning out our house, throwing things away, redecorating, and coming up with so many ideas for it.
