So I’m doing a terrible job at the week-by-week updates on Nugget, but I WILL get better. We’ve just spent a few weeks in transit out of India and back to Manhattan via England, Cape Cod and Connecticut, so my time and access to computers has been a bit limited with lots of time being spent with family & friends. This post was meant to be up last weekend, so the 24 week post will come sooner than a week from now! Weeks 21 and 22 flew by in the flurry of traveling but I am including the pictures here so at least the progress is documented! Nugget is the size of a large mango this week. I love that I can think about his or her size in terms of produce! Thanks for reading 🙂
How Far Along: 23 weeks
Total Weight Gain: I have no idea!
Maternity Clothes: 2 new tankinis for Cape Cod – I wore my normal bikinis the whole way through with Molly but have to say, the tankini makes me worry a lot less about sun exposure to the baby so was a good move for me 🙂
Stretch Marks? Nope!
Sleep: Not great but more from Molly than Nugget. I hope Nugget is a better sleeper!
Best moment this week: Seeing family & friends from home. First time I’ve seen then since telling them we are having another baby and really looking forward to them being around for the duration of this pregnancy 🙂
Miss Anything? The usual wine & also not worrying about getting heartburn all the time.
Movement: Lots. Ninja baby part 2.
Food cravings: Nothing – is it weird that I’m going through the second pregnancy and not having any real, lasting cravings for something particular?!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope – all good.
Gender: Unknown – and YES, we are keeping it that way. The surprise is amazing!
Labor Signs: No no no no no.
Symptoms: More achy this time around. Probably from carrying a 20+ lb almost 10 month old as well!
Belly Button in or out? Flat.
Wedding rings on or off? On, still on the opposite hand.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Being able to walk around EVERYWHERE to make sure I’m getting some extra exercise with this little Nugget 🙂
