23 Weeks

Musings on the Weekly Photo: I kind of forgot about taking a photo this week until last night after I returned home from my Pregnancy Yoga class, hence the workout clothes :) And Peter was at his men's Bible study last night, hence the oh-so-professional self portrait :)
Marination Time: 23 weeks last Saturday

Weight Gain:  15-16 lbs total.  Yikes! I've never been this heavy in my life, and I'm pushing the boundary of what you are supposed to have gained at this point in pregnancy. When I went to my ob/gyn last Friday, I had gained 15 lbs. But then when I went to another doctor's appt. this Monday, I had apparently gained 1 more pound over the weekend. I'm totally into believing that it was my heavier shoes on Monday that made the difference and not the brownies that I made Sunday :)
Maternity Clothes:  Pregnancy yoga pants are the best! If I never had to leave the house, I would probably be in these all of the time. Side note about maternity clothes: Why is it so hard to find maternity wear in colors other than black, gray, brown, and navy? Has intensive marketing research found that pregnant women do not like bright, happy colors? I've been looking for some pretty spring dresses for my upcoming baby shower and Easter, and even though all of the colorful spring clothing for non-preggos is on the racks in stores, maternity shops still look like it's the dead of winter.
Fruit of the Week: Mango, according to Baby Center. Pomegranate, according to The Bump.
Name: Nope. Peter has to mull each possibility over for a few days before rejecting it. Baby Boy will probably still be called Baby Boy when he's 5 years old at this rate!

Movement: Pretty constant now.

Cravings: Pizza! Looking forward to partaking of some cheesy goodness this weekend ...
Annoyances: Frequent toe cramps and occasional leg cramps. I had a bad leg cramp last night which was not a fun thing to wake up to! Allergies are still bad :(
Highlights of the Week:  Wedding dress shopping with my recently-engaged friend, KJB :)
