How Far Along: 23 weeks
Weight Gain: Not sure - maybe around 4kg?
Innie or Outtie: Innie.
Maternity Clothes: Yes, they’re much more comfortable than my regular clothes.
Sleep: Sleeping okay, but need the aid of a pillow between my knees to help my spine!
Pregnancy Perk: Attention is the main thing that I’ve been getting - that, and being able to look at cute clothes and baby things!
Embarrassing Pregnant Moment: None this week.
Best Moment this week: Feeling more definite movement.
Baby Purchases this week: Bought a cot sheet set, a mattress protector, some bibs, a little romper, and some other bits and pieces.
Gender: Still a girl, as far as we’re aware!
Movement: A lot more definite - it felt like you karate kicked and punched me in my back and front at the same time last night.
Food Cravings: Strawberries, and watermelon - neither of which are in season at the moment.
Food Aversions: Pizza, strong curries.
How’s Mummy? Doing well today - have been for about the last week, feeling very positive.
How’s Daddy? He’s doing good, starting to get excited!
What I am looking forward to: It’s always the next scan, being able to see how much more you’ve grown. And getting the nursery finished.
Our Baby in Veggie/Fruit Terms: You’re the size of a grapefruit! Approximately 28cm long and around 500 grams in weight.
What Baby Peanut is up to: Her hearing is well established and she can make out a distorted version of your voice, the beating of your heart and your stomach rumblings. Loud noises often heard in utero, such as the barking of a dog next door or the roar of a vacuum cleaner, probably won’t bother your child when she hears them outside the womb.
