23 Weeks Pregnant

People… I feel huge.  I know, I know, I’m going to get way larger.  But I swear I’m larger now at 23 weeks than I was with Nora when I had her at 29 weeks…

23 weeks

And why is my behind as large as my belly???  What is happening??  And will it go back to how it was???

Overall I feel good, bloated but good…  Maybe I need to eat smaller meals more frequently.  And still not sleeping well.  I shouldn’t complain though, I wanted this, and it will be so worth it.  I’ve gained about 20 pounds so far.  I’m hoping I don’t end up gaining an unhealthy amount by the end of this, as I still have 17 weeks to go, God willing.  We’re still doing the Makena shots weekly, which are good, way better than the progesterone in oil injections.  The injection site is sometimes a little itchy, but otherwise painless.  I’m already finding it hard to bend over, picking up all of Nora’s toys each evening is difficult…  And I need to repaint my toenails for a trip this weekend.  How is that gonna work???  I know, I should just go somewhere, but it’s easier just to do it at home once Nora is in bed for the evening.

I ordered a maternity swimsuit, and can you believe it, it fits!  Rarely do things I order online fit, but it actually fit!  If you’re pregnant and looking for a suit, I highly recommend these:

Skirted Maternity Bottom – Black

Cross Back Maternity Top – Pink/Black

Ruffle Front Maternity Top – Black

Alright… off to do something productive with me day.  Inside though, as it’s 90 degrees here again.  Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant, but the heat seems to bother me so much more this year.  Or maybe I’m just getting old!
