Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 23 weeks!

Size of baby: 
your baby's the size of a grapefruit!

At about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces, baby's not just getting bigger, he's getting even cuter.

Baby Development This Week: 
  •       He's forming little nipples (yeah, really!)
  •         His face is fully formed now -- He just needs a little extra fat to fill it out.
  •         He's listening to your voice and your heartbeat -- and even to loud sounds like cars honking and dogs barking.

Maternity Clothes: Still in regular clothes and using belly band for jeans.

Gender: IT’S A BOY! John Declan Leviner! He will be called Declan. Declan is of Irish origin and means full of goodness. J

Movement: He is becoming more and more active as the days go by! He is starting to kick more in the day time hours, but still loving the night! ;)

Sleep: It’s okay…not quite  normal but not too many issues.

What I miss: All of my clothes fitting! lol
Cravings: Mostly salty foods.

Symptoms: headaches, harder to move around and lean over, feet swelling, backaches, and Braxton Hicks (a new development that I had two days last week.)  :/

Best Moment this week: My mom got me some really sweet Mother’s Day gifts. She also got Declan a really cute outfit. My grandmother got him a really sweet blue rocking chair.

My gifts from my mommy plus a pair of yellow gauchos not pictured.

The outfit my mom got Declan. It says "Mommy's Little Man" I love it!

  1. So sweet! I can't believe he is so big already! So...Braxton- Hicks, do they hurt?


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
