Bumpdate // 23 Weeks

Thursday, January 26, 2017

As of Thursday, January 26th, I am 23 weeks pregnant...so instead of a whole trimester update at the end of my second (the way I did with my first), I thought I'd do an little update now!

And in case you were wondering...here are the deets on my little maternity fashion above:

Sweater // Forever 21
Tank // Target (must have!!)
Leggings // Blanqi (another must have!!)
Flats // Target (old - similar)

From our recent Anatomy Ultrasound <3

How far along? 23 weeks 4 days

Gender: Girl

Weight Gain? 5 lbs

Maternity Clothes?  Yep, started to become an issue the past couple weeks as my bump really popped! I've had to do a little shopping and buy some actual maternity items. Favorites so far are the Blanqi leggings and Target maternity tanks (Liz Lange).

Stretch Marks? None

Belly button in or out?  In

Sleep:  Having a hard time sleeping through the night (as it has been since day 1 of my pregnancy). Waking up 3-4 times a night, but typically able to get back to sleep without any problems.

Best moment this week:  Feeling our little girl moving around like crazy now! She "boops" me constantly and it is the craziest, but most amazing feeling in the world. She's going to be a dancer like her Mommy! ;) 

Also loved chopping off my hair. It was so long, and had been for years now...and I finally had enough - it was driving me crazy. So, last week I took a half day and went to the salon to have it drastically changed. I think we ended up cutting off close to 10 inches! And I just love how it turned out! 

Symptoms:  The heartburn is insane - I was having such a hard time with it...all day at various times and then at night when trying to get to sleep. I'm doing better now that the doctor gave me Pepcid though. It's also getting harder to move around in ways that I used to...for example, getting up and down off the floor is now quite a struggle. And I've had a bit of sciatica pain, but grateful it hasn't been worse as I know it really bothers some mamas.

Miss Anything?  Not particularly, the only thing was I would have liked to have a cocktail at my birthday dinner with Aaron earlier in January...but that's about it!

Movement?  All the time now!

Cravings?  Fresh fruit - can't get enough of it.

Queasy or sick?  Not at all

Looking forward to?  Starting to get things together for the nursery! We are supposed to start cleaning out the spare room soon, and I'm excited to start buying things off our wish list and putting it all together.


  1. your hair looks seriously amazing! i'm sorry to hear about the sleep and heartburn, hope those things improve :) can't wait to see the nursery when you get it all done!

  2. Your haircut looks so pretty!! Super exciting that you're getting ready to start the nursery!
