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 recti...it'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!
