WIWW: Bumpdate + Link Up

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

I have yet to do one of these full "bumpdate" posts. I find them super repetitive week after week because, in my opinion not much changes, but since I haven't done one at all I figured I might try one out and maybe do them monthly for my own reflection!

How far along: 23 weeks 5 days...if it weren't for my phone, I would have no idea!

Baby's size: 8 inches and 1.2 lbs. According to my app, he is the size of a Papaya.

Name: If you've been reading here lately, you know choosing a name has been a struggle. I have one that I've had my heart set on, but Chris is just not in love with it at all. I suggested another name to him a long time ago that he has loved, so I am finally deciding to cave and go with that name. He promised our (God willing!) next boy can be named my favorite name. 

Weight gain: I honestly have no idea. Maybe 10 lbs? That is a total guess! 

Sleep: Amazing! I've been having hip and back pain, but once I fall asleep, I'm usually out like a light. 

Movement: This babe is pretty predictable. He usually moves when I start to stir in the mornings and for sure right when I lay down at night. He loves salsa and apples! Chris has felt him move several times and it is precious! 

Best moment this week: Deciding on a name! We are trying it out a little longer, but I'm 99.9% sure we know! When Chris gives me the go-ahead, I will let y'all know!! Don't ask about middle name though...that is proving to be just as tough!

Looking forward to: Our 24 week appointment on Friday, my brother and his fiance coming on Friday, AND Christmas break starting Friday!!

Food cravings: None that I can think of. I am getting full faster and feeling really stretched after big meals. I'm going to have to take my meals slower, but I'm just so darn hungry!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. Thank God!

Symptoms: By far, the worst symptom of all is the pregnancy brain. IT IS BAD! I've put milk in the pantry numerous times, left groceries out all night, totally forgot a friend's birthday party. The struggle is seriously real, and sometimes scary. I can't believe I literally can't remember some things!

Workouts: I've been wearing Chris's FitBit and tried getting 10,000 steps a day. That happen probably 5 days a week. I've been trying to go to a couple workout classes a week, but school has been really busy. I'm just doing things when I have time and feel like it.

What I miss: All my pants, red wine, not being out of breath, but I love being able to have a gut after you pig out on a meal. There is nothing better than not having to suck it in!

  4. You are so cute, and picking a name is huge! I know as soon as we picked a name I was so happy and then got to call the baby by name instead of the baby. Can't wait to hear what you picked out! Oh and of course you're outfit is cute, love the military jacket.

  5. I can't wait to hear what name you're "caving" in to BC while we aren't pregnant we've talked about names and I'm not sure I can give in to some my lovely hubby thinks would be perfect.
