Pregnancy #2 - week 23

Holy heck I hate being sick.  Mason has gotten another cold this fall (last one was mid October) and was nice enough to share it with me.  Plus after my "meh" tasting Panera sandwich yesterday, I came home and threw up.  I'm still having trouble holding food down and the cold isn't really helping.  While Mason was in his room for nap time I definitely went to bed and was lucky that Mason finally fell asleep and was in there a long time.  I'm back in bed now and am looking forward to resting up some more.   

I was totally going to skip writing this update until next week but then figured I should just throw something together and move on.  My doctor's appointment last Friday went well ... I weighed 122 pounds, up 6 pounds from the last appointment 4 weeks prior. 

Baby's heart beat was good, my blood pressure was good, and my glucose screening was scheduled for December 5th.

I'm sorry I look so terrible ... I just took a shower, put my hair back up into a bun, and managed to stand still long enough for 4 pictures.  Next week, fingers crossed, I look like a human again.

Aside from the sickness the past couple of days, this week had been going well.  I began taking Pure Barre classes in hopes of toning up my arms and legs prior to baby's arrival. 

according to the, baby is the size of a grapefruit, at about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.  symptoms this week include swollen feet/ankles (nope not yet), Braxton hicks contractions (yep), aching back (oh yeah), and bleeding gums (had it last week, not so much this week).

Here's to a healthier week!
