Bump update: Week 23

New room! Not sure about that lighting…

Baby stats: Baby is the size of grapefruit, or a Barbie doll.
Symptoms:  No real symptoms this week, although I have been getting weird leg aches.. they feel like growing pains but in my lower calf.  Unsure if this is pregnancy related??.

Total weight gain: Back at my starting weight!  Weighed in at 65.3 this evening (this was just before dinner).  I feel like it will be on the up from here on out 🙂

Maternity clothes: Nope.  And the larger sized clothes I bought the other week are getting tight..  Still trying to source some plain shorts for this summer.. not happening at the moment.  Even ASOS hasn’t come to the party!  Le sigh.

Stretch marks? Still no new ones, but my belly is starting to feel a little itchy so will be carrying oils and lotions around with me in an attempt to not get any.  Given that I grew at a steady pace with my last pregnancy (by this stage I already had a proper baby belly), I’m a little concerned that I will blow up overnight and be covered in marks.  So, here is to drinking lots of water and keeping my belly well moisturised!

Workouts: A bit of walking this week, but probably not enough to counter the quantity of junk food I ate.

Diet: Not so great this week.  Quite a bit of chocolate and quite a bit of takeaways (read: Junk).  Better luck this coming week.

Food cravings: No cravings, but I’ve been indulging in junk and chocolate this week.

Gender: Girl 🙂

Labor signs: Um, no….

Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.

Happy or moody most of the time: Not bad considering it has been a challenging week.  The universe must be working with me this week.  Makes for a nice change 🙂
