Baby Gardner- 23 weeks

How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain.  15 lb I think, but will know for sure this week at our appt
Baby Development.  Our little nugget is now weighting over a pound and measures about11 inches. Over the coming weeks, he will gain 6 ounces a week- time to put some meat on those bones!!
Maternity Clothes?My wardrobe pretty much consists of leggings and one pair of skinny jeans that are still fitting for now. Did buy a few maternity tanks to cover the goods and also a pair of workout capri's that stay below the bump so i don't get indentations by the end of my spinning class
Stretch Marks? still clear
Sleep? sleeping great, even though my little man likes to have a dance party at about 11 pm
Best Moment of the week? Picking up our crib and placing the order for the other nursery furniture and officially clearing the nursery of everything non-baby!!
Symptoms? Leg cramps have been hitting in the middle of the night and still get heartburn with spicy food
Food cravings? Anything sweet: yogurt covered raisins, dove dark chocolate, whatever is in the house
Miss anything? Lunch meat sandwiches
Movement? Oh Yeah, this man is moving more and more.
Gender ? Little baby boy
Belly Button in or out? In
Goals for upcoming week? Pick out paint for the nursery and read more about breastfeeding(how often to pump, how long it can stay frozen/refrigerated, best way to warm milk, ). Also purchase bark collars(citronella) for the pups, no more barking like crazy when they hear a car door slam outside. Time to train these dogs to not wake up a sleeping baby
Looking Forward to?  Our 24 week appt, I love hearing that everything is going well and my my list of questions for the MD is pretty long, so it will be nice to get those answered.
Thoughts? Nothing new to report, just enjoying this time when I am feeling really good and still able to walk without a waddle.
