I am 23 Weeks Pregnant and Loving It!

Good afternoon everyone and happy Monday <3

My Baby 

This week has been incredible. This was the first week that I have been able to feel so many different movements of my baby boy. In a matter of days, his movements went from some flutters and some kicks here and there to strong kicks and noticeable twist and turns. The cutest thing he has been doing is putting his head in my belly button. When he does that, not only can I poke his head with my finger, but my stomach becomes so tight that I am unable to bend over. I probably shouldn’t be poking his cute little head, but I can’t help it =)

His movements are strongest when I am sitting or laying down. The feeling is indescribable. It still amazes me everyday that my body is growing a human life; and I can feel him. He is his own being yet he is a part of me. I am a lucky woman to be able to experience something so wonderful. =D

So far, I have gained 10 pounds =) Since the first week of the second trimester, I have been gaining about a pound a week. I still have not resumed doing any toning exercises due to pelvic pressure, but since the weather has been so beautiful, I have been walking a mile five times a week. I feel absolutely incredible =D

I have started to experience braxton hicks contractions over the last week. They occur completely randomly and last between 1 to 2 minutes. Only 17 more weeks until I experience the real thing =D

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you have a wonderful day! =D
