23 Weeks

Yikes, I've been horrible about getting my weekly posts up on time lately!  Here's me at 23 weeks:

The belly is getting rounder...and so is my face!  What is up with that?

Baby is the size of: a large mango (about 11 inches long and a little over a pound)
Sleep: Not sleeping quite as well...having trouble getting comfortable in bed
Cravings: MILK! And carrots with Ranch dressing.  Weird.
Symptoms:  Although I can say I've had a pretty easy pregnancy (no sickness), other "symptoms" have been cropping up over the past couple of weeks.  My pregnancy started with lots of headaches and tiredness.  That has mostly subsided...but now I am dealing with heartburn/indigestion, swollen feet, and backaches.  I guess these are all attributed to the fact that baby is taking up much more space these days!

Milestones: I could feel some kicks from the outside this week, but little girl isn't cooperating very well for Daddy.  Hopefully soon he will be able to feel her too!  I also had a dream that we named her "Lydia Grace".  The name hunt continues!  We ordered the crib and changing table this week, so I'm looking forward to those arriving in the next couple of weeks.  The glider arrived this week.  Honey picked it up and brought it home...he assembled in the living room, and that's where it sat for a few days.  It is so comfy!

We have another sonogram a week from today - I am anxious to see the little pumpkin again!

Tonight I worked on baby girl's quilt.  I cut out all the blocks on Saturday night, and tonight I started sewing a few together.  I went for a very easy quilt block since this is my first go at it.
Can't wait to continue working on the nursery!


  1. Can I ask where you found this block design? I am looking for something similar...thanks!

    1. Yes, Andrea - I found it on Cluck Cluck Sew's website. Here's the link:
      Super easy for a beginner!
