Eat Drink & Be Mary: Baby T Week 21-23

11.29.2017

Baby T Week 21-23



23 weeks

23 weeks


Due Date | March 25, 2018 BUT my guess is our little one will make their appearance March 31st.

Size | Baby T is the size of  a bunch of grapes or Barbie doll -- a little over a foot long (12.008 in, ha) and  20 ounces.

Gender | It's a BOY! {see our gender reveal here}

Symptoms |  headaches, heartburn and the never ending trips to the bathroom..

Cravings/Aversions |  no strong cravings or aversions, but 2 Thanksgivings was pure bliss.



22w4d - Thanksgiving Day

Hormones | Possibly less moody this week?  But Thomas might be the better judge of that.  ;)

Weight |  +10 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight.  I'm not gonna lie this kinda freaked me out, but my doctor was very happy with this so as long as it's healthy for the little babe I'm trying not to worry too much.

Clothing |  my 20 week update: I can still fit it all my normal clothes, however, button my jeans (that started pretty tight) is a struggle and fitting into my work pants is a struggle.  So I'm using the "hair band trick" on my jeans as well as the maternity pairs I purchased and am on the look out for some maternity work pants.

23 weeks: Baby Boy is so low that although I've just started to officially show and look pregnant, jeans are a no go.  AND the "hairband trick" is really pushing it.  Also, ZERO work pants fit so there's that...   BUT you can't beat stretchy, maternity pants around the holidays. #winning

Sleep | I pretty much toss and turn all night long, and my back has started to hurt.  ALL I want to do is sleep on my back, bur that's no happening any time soon.  I'm thinking a pregnancy pillow is in my future...any suggestions?

Nursery | I can't wait to share my ideas, working on a post about my ideas/inspiration this week.

Purchases | The buying has begun.  We have something for the nursery (that I mom actually got even before we knew it was a boy), I've bought an outfit or ten, and thanks to Black Friday sales I've ordered a baby book, name blanket and a couple other things.  I'll share them when they come in.

Fun Fact | At 23 weeks Baby T's hearing is more developed and therefore is kicking more in response to the stimuli -- mainly my heartbeat, my voice and LOUD noises.  

Best Moment of The Week | Celebrating Thanksgiving with both sides of our families, picking out our Christmas tree and scoring some Black Friday sales.

Looking Forward To | Hearing little man's heartbeat again when I go in for our next appointment.

Next Apt. |  December 6th -- we're doing the hour long diabetes scan.
