Baby #2 Bumpdate - Weeks 22 & 23

As always it's exciting to be ONE WEEK AWAY FROM VIABILITY!

How far along: 23 Weeks

Weight Gain: 14 lbs. After gaining several pounds in the previous weeks it looks like I didn't gain a damn thing the last 2 weeks and I am now officially gaining LESS than I did with Jett at this point.

What's Up with My Body: Nothing.  I took a look at my Jett pregnancy bumpdate from this point and I had symptoms all over the place.  Heartburn, constipation, Braxton Hicks had started, milk leaking, etc etc.  But this time...nothing.  I mean I have BH all the damn time, but...I have them all the damn time so they're hardly new this week.  And amazingly CONSTIPATION WENT AWAY.  I have no idea why, it just suddenly...wasn't a problem anymore.  So I'm feeling pretty good!  Most days I forget I'm pregnant until I have to bend down and pick something up or pick up my toddler and the 17 other things I'm trying to carry at the same time or when I accidentally bump the car door into my stomach.  Or when the wiggle monster (the one on the inside) starts getting really active.

And I forgot to mention this on my last bumpdate from 2 weeks ago, but the pregosaurus is back!  I think it's started a bit earlier this time as it was a few more weeks before I saw it happening last time.  But yes, diastasis's back.  

Gender:  I am 100% set on girl.  I can't for the life of me picture this kid as a boy!!!  Again looking at this point in Jett's pregnancy I was convinced he was in fact a boy, kept calling him a he, etc etc, but we kept talking girl names.  This time I must admit we haven't talked names AT ALL other than a very brief conversation in which we decided on a boy middle name.  We're screwed if I'm wrong and it's a boy!


From last time.  Bump looks about the same these days!


  1. I totally agree with you that I have diastasis recti too. I've been going to yoga class and that has been helping, since I keep my core tight the whole time.. but my herniated belly button still sticks out, so I still have some separation.. though less than I did a few months ago. I hope yours heals and goes away fast than mine is.. it's slow.. but it is getting better.. but extremely hard to be patient about!!!
    You look adorable and I'm glad you are feeling better!!!
    PS- I love how Jett looks like he's dancing behind you!

  2. I have been reading all these updates and am just the worst commenter! You look adorable as always and I hear you on the BH!!! I had them starting at 8 weeks this time! So crazy, by the end they were pretty annoying - and in my case definitely did not mean an earlier delivery!!! I can't wait to see what you end up having! I was so damn sure too....hahaha! But I did have the exact same pregnancy and yours seems different so we will see!!!
