23 Weeks

How far along? 23 weeks.
How big is baby? Baby is the size of an ear of corn. Baby's length is roughly 11.5 inches weighing in at a WHOPPING 1 lb!
Total weight gain/loss? 13 lbs UP.
Maternity clothes? I'm wearing some maternity clothes now! I spent last weekend and the past week looking for maternity jeans and picked up several pairs (Macy's - $50 and Old Navy - on sale for $25...gotta return some now!) I finally landed on two pairs at ROSS that fit amazingly well and were $14.99 each. Um, steal?! Yes, please! I've decided that maternity clothes in general are a bit of a disappointment. (the maternity section of Buy Buy Baby) and I left there with a white t-shirt. I got some black pants in the mama-to-be section at Macy's that I think will be versatile. I love my tanks from Gap Maternity for casual looks and workouts. I got some denim shorts and a couple tops from kid-to-kid as well.
Sleep? I'm sleeping pretty well but can't stay on my back anymore. I've also started elevating my head a little due to some lovely indigestion. As long as I use my magnesium powder and cream before bed, i sleep!
Best moment this week? Hmmm. I don't know. Probably just feeling her move more.
Symptoms? If I eat too much now, I feel really full or like the food is stuck in my throat. Not comfortable! Nothing too awful to complain about though.
Food cravings? Van's gluten-free cereals. Shaved ice or Sonic slushes. Lemon-Berry!
Food aversions? I would say ice cream...but...a couple weeks ago I was stressed and bought a pint of Talenti's Tiramisu gelato and ate the whole thing in 2 days. So.
Gender? GIRL!
Labor signs? No.
Belly button in or out? In. But it's s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g!
Exercise? I'm doing my 21 Day Fix workouts and will throw in some PiYo too. I've moved up from using my 5 lb dumbbells to 8's for most exercises. I will probably stay there though and not go to 10's unless I'm feeling adventurous. :) I'm all about lifting as heavy as you can but while pregnant, I'm also trying to be cautious. I'm modifying/skipping floor ab exercises as well.
What I miss? Not a lot. I'm loving this.
What I'm looking forward to? Getting the nursery painted and decorated. We have plans to start the striped wall this week! Wish me luck. 
Milestones? I'm over half-way through this pregnancy!
Movement? I've been feeling her move more which is amazing. It's not all day but comes and goes, usually when I've been moving and then am all of a sudden still. Karlyn felt her several times today. I love it. I can see my stomach jump a little too.
Bump? I have a bump! Woo Hoo!

I feel the same way about maternity clothes. I always thought I would dress really cute while pregnant but that really hasn't happened. Ugh, disappointed! lol It's so hard to find things that fit right and that are also comfy at the same time.
