Best moment this week: Just really enjoying being pregnant & feeling this sweet baby wiggling all around. 
Miss Anything? Soft cheese? We love this Greek chicken feta salad that is right next door to us & I have been really wanting it this week...BOO    
Food cravings: Greek chicken feta salad & sandwiches, gosh I can't wait to eat a sandwich I would eat one every day if I could, I am continuing to build up my after baby menu.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy although despite Brian's warning in doing any drastic changes to my hair while pregnant, I was in need of something new & cut straight across bangs...not a fan...never again. Another downer...we wont be having another sonogram until 36 weeks...BOO that seems like an eternity!
Looking Forward to: these bangs growing out!

Week Twenty-Three(Feb.12th-18th):

How far along? 23 Weeks
Total weight gain: Daddy decided this would be a good week to do my measurements again...F that I'm not doing it anymore. But let me just share 38X39X44...I envy those of you who are all belly & only gained "23lbs"...lets face it I gained 20lbs by my first doctors visit & I can't even attempt to justify it.
Stretch Marks? Still rollin' with the same ones.
Sleep: Sucks. I think I am driving Brian insane with all of the tossing and turning. 
Maternity Clothes: Yoga pants until it gets too warm for them I presume. I do wear maternity jeans when I feel like wearing a cute top.    
Best moment this week: Valentines Day of course (although we have zero pictures!) & Finally purchasing a body pillow, we looked into the huge pregnancy pillows, but I don't know who the hell fits that in their bed without smothering their husband?! 
Miss Anything? I always miss sleeping on my stomach, but I have particularly missed it this week, with my sleep struggles. However the body pillow has made a world of a difference!      
Food cravings: still picky & still loving sweets    
Anything making you queasy or sick? nope
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: None
Symptoms: zero
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I think a little more moody this week, as you can tell all of my answers have swayed on the negative side slightly. I really struggle with all of the weight gain & stretch marks, I had just started really cutting abs & brought my percent body fat down to 13.6% & I worry that I wont be able to get it back.
Looking Forward to: Getting better sleep with this new body pillow of mine :)

Maternity Clothes: Yoga pants & my solid colored long sleeves & a scarf are my go-to's at the moment.   
Best moment this week: Just really enjoying everything, especially this little babe moving around all the time!
Miss Anything? Hot baths, with which I have substituted for extra long showers.     
Food cravings: still loving sweets & I have eaten more cereal during this pregnancy than my entire life, I feel like a kid in the candy store down the cereal isle!    
Anything making you queasy or sick? nope
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: None
Symptoms: I would exchange my stretch marks for a pregnancy filled with symptoms any day of the week.
Belly Button in or out? In still & growing more & more shallow each day
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Other than stressing about my growing ass & stretch marks, I am really enjoying my pregnancy.
