Pregnancy update – 23 weeks

How far along? 23 weeks and 4 days.

Bump at 23 weeks

Maternity clothes: Still haven’t bought any and I hope not to have
to. Maternity clothes all seem to be the ugliest things ever! If anyone know of
any nice brands of maternity clothes let me know and I’ll take a look.

Stretch marks: No, so far so good. I can feel my skin being
pulled tighter, if you know what I mean. It really is quite horrible, the
feeling of being stretched!

Sleep: I have slept really well this week. We are still
sleeping on a mattress on the floor due to our bedroom being redecorated and
getting up and down is becoming more of an issue now. Hopefully we should be in
our bedroom and sleeping in a bed by the end of this weekend.

Best moment this week: Getting our results from the hospital. Neither
Nick nor I are carriers for the cystic fibrosis gene. The blood test did show that I had had the CSV infection in the past. They are now going to check my booking in bloods to see if the infection has been caught whilst I have been pregnant. If it has it is more of a concern, so we are just waiting to hear on that.

Miss anything? No not really. Except maybe a flat tummy!

Movement: Ok, so this week she has been wriggling all over
the place! I feel her constantly. Especially when I am lying down and trying to
go to sleep. My husband is a fidget who jerks around next to me and it drives
me insane! I now have a little fidget inside my belly. She is definitely her
father’s daughter.

Anything making you queasy or
No sickness at all this

Gender: It’s a girl!

Labour signs: No.

Symptoms: Feeling kicks, growing tummy, back ache. The usual!
I’m starting to look and feel really pregnant now.

Belly button in or out? In, but it’s on its way out. It seems to get
bigger every day.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy.

Looking forward to: The bank holiday weekend and moving back into our
