23 weeks

How far along: 23 weeks! 

Size of baby: A grapefruit! 10.5-11.8 inches long and weighs between 1 and 1.5 pounds.  
Total weight gain/loss: Still don't really know, I'll find out when I go to the Dr next Monday.

Maternity clothes: Yepppp. And they are lovely.

Gender: Sweet baby boy! James Austin Green! All I can think about lately is what he is going to look like!

Movement: Oh yea! It's such an awesome feeling. I love it and dont' ever want him to stop!! Austin can feel him too so that is super fun.   

Sleep: Sleeping really good still. He does wake me up sometimes in the morning but its a nice wakeup call. :)

What I miss: Nothing I can think of right now.
Cravings: this week it was apple sauce! I couldn't get enough. I ate one of those huge 32 oz jars in 4 days haha. and still craving orange juice like whoa. Sometimes in the mornings I feel like I'm going to choke on it I'm drinking it so fast!

Best moment this past week: Austin feeling the baby and seeing his excitment. Finishing our hardwood floors!! And receiving our sectional! AND seeing my Mama on Saturday for a few hours. We will be back in Fayetteville Wednesday to celebrate Christmas with everyone. 

Symptoms: I guess I do have a lot of symptoms but don't really think about them. I still feel great but there are several little things going on. First, my gums - they bleed everytime I brush my teeth and my teeth felt super sensative the other night. My hand, I've been waking up in the mornings and my right hand is tingly and numb. It's probably related to his position and different nerves he is laying on. I also had a CRAZY BAD leg cramp the other night. It was like a charlie horse x10 radiating from my calf to my butt. Holy cow. I woke up screaming and shot out of bed. Also, I noticed yesterday when I took off my socks from working all day my ankles were swollen! Ew! Ok I think thats about all :)

What I'm looking forward to: Christmas tomorrow!!!

Milestones: He has little nipples now! aww. And his face is fully formed. He is also listening to my voice and heartbeat and loud sounds like car horns and dogs barking.

Mood: happy! and super sensative. watch out :/

Labor Signs: negative

Wedding rings on or off: on

And the first ever...bare belly pic.
Floors are finished!! Still have to do the shoe moulding around the edge but hey, they are FINISHED!
Love the new sectional! It is soooo comfy! We are still hunting for the perfect rug and a new accent chair.
Merry Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!
