23 Weeks

Today was my 23 week appointment - everything looks good. My next appt. in 4 weeks is the dreaded glucose test. After that, I start going every 2 weeks instead of every 4 - hard to believe we are already to that milestone. I'm still feeling good although bending over isn't as easy these days as it used to be. I was pulling something out of the oven on Thanksgiving and Kyle asked me if I was ok. I said sure, why? Apparently he said I was huffing and puffing to which I replied, try bending over while carrying this around. She's moving more and more these days and particularly seems to be active in the middle of the night. Let's hope this isn't an indicator of her sleep patterns. Here is what she is up to this week...

Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
