23 Weeks

Size of Baby: 1.1 pounds and 11.5 inches long, about the size of a large mango. Apparently this sweet boy is going to double his weight in the next 4 weeks! That's crazy and exciting!!

How I'm Feeling: I feel good although I randomly got sick this week and I fear it's about to start happening more often. I blame my stomach getting squished and heartburn/reflux officially taking over.
Cravings/Appetite: I still drink my cappuccino for breakfast every morning. I'm always hungry for lunch but I would just really rather not eat dinner. I'm never hungry and it makes my heartburn so much worse. I think I may start boycotting dinner. It's hard when you have other mouths to feed though. This is my current daily struggle.

Clothes: Still no changes in this department. Everything fits but my belly is definitely filling out my clothes more and more. I used to feel like I could wear certain pieces and not look pregnant but I don't feel that way anymore!
Movement: This little boy is so different than Campbell. Just when I'm thinking to myself that I haven't felt him move in a while, he'll give me a few kicks to say hello. I feel like he doesn't move very much. I'm not concerned because I feel him moving all throughout the day but I'm planning on mentioning to my doctor that he moves a lot less than my other baby did. Last night we were laying in bed and he was moving so I had Scott put his hand on my belly to see if he could feel it. For the first time Scott felt the tiniest little movement from baby Bennett! Scott kept his hand on my belly to try and feel more and I told him there was no point and that was all he was going to get. Just one quick hello. And I was right!! He was done moving after that. Little stinker.

Changes in Me: I feel like my belly has had a major growth spurt. I hadn't told the girls groomer that I'm pregnant and they had an appointment with her this week. When I walked in the door she looked at me and said "are you pregnant?!" It's always crazy when that happens for the first time. It's clearly obvious now.
Baby Purchases: I bought some storage bins for Bennett's closet from Restoration Hardware. I'm using the same ones that Campbell has in case we ever need to combine them one day. Plus they're my favorites of any I've seen. I also got some shelves/cubbies that I need Scott to build so we can have shelves in Bennett's closet. Campbell has the best closet of all the guest bedrooms upstairs which is one of the main reasons we chose his room to be our first nursery. Bennett has a nice walk-in closet too but he doesn't have any built-in's like Campbell does. I considered having someone come out to renovate but decided that some white shelves from Target would work just fine. Scott's project is to build the shelves for me this week so I can get to organizing!!

Favorite Moment This Week: I'm in nesting mode. There's so many things I want to do before Bennett's arrival. A lot of them I feel like I still need to wait a few more months to do (like make some freezer meals) but I'm anxious to get started on a lot of it now. Mom and I are going to spend the day organizing my pantry. I need to make some room for another grass drying rack (I keep them in my pantry) and decided I'd just reorganize my pantry while I'm at it. Nesting feels so good and I'm excited to get something accomplished today!
Looking Forward To: My doctor appointment next week! There won't be much to it but I still enjoy them.
