23 Weeks!

How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: No idea!
Sleep: It's definitely still on and off. I think I've finally met up with the dreaded 2nd Tri Insomnia!
Best moment this week: Putting up our Christmas Tree and decorating the house!
Movement: Lots! And Gez finally got to feel the baby moving from the outside, which was a pretty special moment. Last night I even saw my belly moving when the baby gave some especially big kicks!
Gender: Boy!!
Labor Signs: I'm pretty sure I felt my first Braxton Hicks contraction, but that is common at this stage, so not really a labor sign per se.
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie
Food cravings/aversions: This week I've developed a renewed (and unfortunate) appreciation for Snickers Bars.
What I miss: I've got nothing this week. Although I am starting to feel a bit more cumbersome and limited physically- so I'm sure that will begin to prove frustrating
What I am looking forward to: My visit with the midwife next Friday, I think we'll begin discussing a preliminary birth plan.
Weekly Wisdom: As exciting as it is to think about the holidays next year with a baby, I'm trying to take the time to appreciate these last few months as a couple.
Milestones: Our little boy can now hear things going on on the outside!
