23 Weeks!

I'm 23 weeks pregnant!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of a mango and weighs over a pound!
Total Weight Gain: Gained 15 lbs! Whoa!

Belly Growth: 10 1/2 inches.  I've exploded - seriously.  This happened so fast!
Maternity Clothes: Yes please!  I wore some today that I bought on sale right after the first trimester, and when I tried them on, hubby and I laughed and laughed and thought, these will never, ever fit.  Well, I'm not even 6 months along and they fit!  I'm a little scared of this...   

Gender: It's a BOY!  Now we just have to agree on a's hard.  Everything I come up with, Hubby hates.  He had his feet in the sand about the middle name.  I want him to have my Daddy's name as a middle name, hubby wants him to have his name.  We had a half joking half arguing conversation last night that ended with me saying, "Fine!  You pick all three of his names and just tell me what to call him."  Yes, I'm frustrated.  So, for now I'm done talking about, looking at names, etc.
Movement: Oh yes, and it is the most amazing feeling ever!  I love feeling him wiggling around in there!  I'm hoping hubby will be able to feel him from the outside of my belly soon!
Sleep: Great!  I love sleeping.  I am sleeping with a pillow between my knees, and it is so comfortable.  Yesterday after I got out of the shower, I could see my hand print across my belly.  I guess I had been holding it all night - how funny is that!?
Symptoms: I feel great, just big!!

What I Miss: Coffee coffee and more coffee.

Cravings: Salads.  I have had one for dinner every night this week. 

Emotions: Better this week.  Besides our little disagreement about names, I've been very sweet and level headed. 

Best Moment of the Week: I have two this week.  One is my girlfriends starting to plan my baby shower.  They are so sweet and making this so much fun!  The other is choosing our bedding at long last!
