Weeks 19-23

 Hello, friends!  Happy New Year! 

It feels weird saying that considering it is the 21st of January, but a full month has passed since last we caught up.  After finding out baby's gender, we had a whirlwind of the holidays, a trip to San Diego/Disneyland, a hellish few weeks at work and an illness thrown in the mix.  I am happy to report that everyone has returned to full health and things have slowed down at work for now.  We have some exciting things in store around these parts in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!  But, for now, a recap of what we've been up to... 


19 Weeks

20 Weeks

21 Weeks

23 Weeks
 ***I must have missed a 22 week picture when I was sick.  Please forgive me, but no one wanted to see me that week.  Trust me.
How Far Along: 24 weeks today, but I'm recapping weeks 19-23.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 10lbs at my appointment last week.

Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants, for the most part (after my Bella Band incident).  I found some great Liz Lange for Target Maternity work pants that I loooove.

Gender: Girl!

Movement: We have a very active little girl!  Hubs has been able to feel her move for a few weeks and the look on his face when he does just never gets old.  It does seem that she is getting close to my rib cage and causing me to be a little short of breath at times.  Yikes for the next 16 weeks!

Sleep: No complaints.

What I miss: We went to Disneyland over New Years and I missed riding the fast rides (but only for a bit) - it was so fun to be there and I was still able to get on some of the slower rides. 
Cravings: Multigrain Cheerios, Chana Masala (we love us some Indian food!), and frozen yogurt.

Symptoms: I did make a trip to the hospital, which was a little scary.  I had gotten sick two weeks ago and spent a full weekend in bed.  I didn't get enough fluids and ended up with some contractions that had me up all night worried.  So Hubs and I went in early the next morning to get checked.  They gave me 2L of fluid, a Motrin and monitored us for a bit.  Everything turned out fine, thank goodness.  I learned my lesson about staying hydrated!  I am really good about it when healthy, but obviously missed the mark when sick.

Best Moment this week: Baby girl has been getting lots of new clothes.  My mom spoiled her rotten this past week and we've gotten some really cute outfits from my grandpa and mother-in-law as well.  And Hubs and I couldn't pass up the cutest little party dresses we found on sale at H&M either.

You look fabulous! I have some Liz Lange pants as well (workout capris and some for around-the-house) and really like them. I agree with Gwen and can't wait to see all the cute clothes you got for her!

Cute pregnant lady!!! I remember when I was expecting, every time I'd see my doctor she'd gripe at me that I wasn't drinking enough water. I got up to a gallon and a half a day!!! In this dry climate you need LOTS.

So... who has good Indian food around here?
