23 Weeks

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.

Sleep habits: Same. No changes.

Maternity clothes: Still....

Food cravings: I'll pretty much eat anything.  I could do without meat. And I really trying to cut back on my late night snacks.

Symptoms: I am starting to swell.  I have to take my rings off early in the day or just keep them on all the time. My feet are swelling but luckily I work from home and can have my feet up most of the day.

Gender: Boy :)

Movement: This is one active little boy.

Nursery: H.B.Nanna's big girl room is in progress which means that the sooneer that is done the sooner we can start on the nursery.  I wouldn't imagine H.B.Nanna makes the transition to her big girl room until around Easter.

Next appointment: I have an ultrasound, doctors appointment and my glucose test on April 2nd. They didn't have the results from my Level II at the last visit so hopefully they will have it this time.
