23-ish weeks

This pregnancy is absolutely FLYING by (I think I've said that before, but it's TRUE!!). I can't believe I'm already past the halfway point and getting close to third trimester! CRAZY!

How far along? 23+ weeks

Size of baby: Somewhere between a grapefruit and a cataloupe.

Symptoms: I've been SUPER tired this week. We moved into our new house last week, so I think it's just from all the excitement and busy-ness of the packing, moving, and unpacking that's got me so wiped these days. I also had an episode last week where my heart started racing and wouldn't stop for a solid 5 minutes. It gave me a good scare, so we actually ended up going into the hospital to have things checked out. Baby was fine, and of course, they couldn't find anything wrong with me because everything had settled down by the time we got there. I just wanted to be on the safe side since I'm pregnant. The doctor also wanted me to wear a 24 hour heart monitor just in case it happens again, so today, I'm sporting this lovely contraption...

Movement: Yes - getting stronger and stronger, although I'm pretty sure this little one isn't quite as active as Tessa was, unless I'm not remembering correctly. It seems like baby loves hanging out in a little pocket lower down on my left side, that's where I'm feeling most of the movement from. As of about two weeks ago, Cam was able to feel movement from the outside and at times I'm able to see my belly move too.

Cravings: Not much of anything this week.

Maternity clothes: Oh yeah!

Most looking forward to: We're heading to Ottawa on Friday to see some of my family and for Cam to run his Spartan Beast! I'm really looking forward to getting away, having some time with family who I haven't seen in years, seeing some sights, and hopefully getting in a decent amount of relaxation too.

23.5 weeks and feelin' large.

  1. Scary! Having health "issues" during pregnancy is THE WORST! Glad to hear that it turned out to be nothing. Still strange though.
