23 Week Bumpdate

Our little ear of corn is a growing girl!
You can't really tell too much by this picture, but she is starting to round out a bit!
Changes I've noticed:  I'm up 16 lbs....I've consistently been going up a pound per week for a while now!  I'm obsessed with cocoa butter, wondering if it is even helping though!  I'm considering using coconut oil as well, has anyone tried this?  Let me know what you think!  I hear good things!
Told yaaaaaaa! 
How I've been feeling:  Still sore and achey, I don't think this is something that will go away anytime soon!  I'm just exhausted, I really think a lot of it has to do with it being the end of the school year.  I'm hoping that as soon as the students are finished (7 more days) there will be a little less pressure.   I am still working for some of the summer break, and even though there is a TON that needs to be will at least be a lot more relaxed!  I'm looking forward to some of the craziness letting up a bit, maybe I won't feel quite as exhausted?  I've also been so emotional, I can't even deal with it...I'll have to share more on that another day!

How I've been sleeping:  Like a baby...enjoying it while I can!!!  I've been having a bunch of weird dreams too!  The most recent one was that my data secretary at work was my midwife!  We had a good laugh over that one!  

Food and exercise:  Thinking maybe I should take this category off of my weekly bumpdates since I never have much to report on.  The only thing I've been doing has just been stretching (better than nothing I guess).  I've been hesitant to use my weights.  About a week ago I pulled out my shoulder, I think that may have had something to do with it.      

Maternity clothes:  This weekend I broke down and bought some dresses at Target (the one in the pic is a new one)!  They are all pretty nice, they seem very baggy but I guess I'll be growing into them!  I am also looking into ordering a dress for my shower in June, hopefully I will order something this week.

Movement:  Every day I look forward to just laying down and feeling baby move!  It is by far the most wonderful experience ever (nothing else I have experienced YET compares).  She is so active, I'm noticing some patterns.  I've even started seeing her little bumps and nudges from the outside.  The other day my phone was on my belly, and lifted right up! 

Best moment this past week:  This weekend when Stephen and I both SAW baby literally took hours for him to be able to catch it, but was so worth all of the effort!
Check out the stockpile of diapers Uncle John and Aunt Laura started for us!!!
Ashley from Wannabe Green is the SWEETEST!!!  Loving these adorable goodies she sent me!  XO
Happy Wednesday!!!


  1. You are so precious! Enjoy the kicks staying on the inside, when your belly starts looking like Alien its so crazy! glad you are sleeping better & school is almost over :)

  2. You look amazing! I have three dresses from Target too and I couldn't wear them until 27 weeks because they just looked too baggy (even at a size xs) and I felt bigger than I was. But they are wicked comfortable and really thats what matters!
