Start of 23 Weeks Pregnant with Baby 2!

This is a summary of weeks 21, 22 and the start of week 23!

How far along: 23 Weeks!

Gender: We are having another little girl! I’ll share a post about gender reveal soon, but if you saw it on FB Live, it was quite funny!!!

Weight gain: I’m now at 128 pounds, started around 116, so about 12 pounds.

Working Out:  Still going strong on my workouts! For weeks 20, 21, & 22, I did Body Beast Beast Up Calendar for strength and LOVED IT with modifications and opting in other workouts as needed.  This week, I’m doing some Active Maternity and then moving into a new program, Core De Force where I’ll limit my torso twists, but just keep moving with cardio - stay tuned, I’ll give it a week and let you know if I think it’s a good one for pregnancy….if not Active Maternity again it is :)

Clothing Choices:  I’m for certain into maternity clothes, but am LOVING loose tops - especially Piko tops & fleece lined leggings - oh so heavenly!

Stretch marks: No new ones, just my soccer ones on those strong thighs ;) BUT I need to be better about putting my body butter/belly cream on - I have some left over from Braelyn’s pregnancy, but don’t use it near enough. Do you have one you like?

Belly button: OUT!

Sleep: It’s not too bad. Tough while we were doing Thanksgiving since we were in the same room as Braelyn and if I woke up to pee, I’d wake her and if she made noises she’d wake me…let’s face it, I’m a terrible sleeper, but that’s okay, I’m surviving! 

Best moment these weeks:  Neal getting to feel little one move more & him and his mom also SAW her kick! So cute!

Hardest moment this week: Sleep...or lack there of. I feel like God really does prepare our bodies for what to expect...but come on my awesome father, I have a few months left, help me sleep a little before then. 

What I’m missing:  Nothing that I can think of…oh wait, sleep ;)

Movement: I am happy to feel her multiple times a day!

Cravings: Seeing as we just got off Thanksgiving…sweets…so I’m on a sugar detox this week while a group of women I am coaching with my business are doing a 3 Day Refresh.

Queasy or sick: Nope!

Looking forward to: We have another appointment Wednesday, and I’m anxious to hear what they will allow me to do at Disney World.
