Week 23 Pregnancy Update

How far along?
24 weeks today.

Total weight gain?
13lbs, almost at the 1 stone mark… argh!

Maternity clothes?
Nothing new yet, but pay day is tomorrow and I’m hoping to get one or two bits to see me through to the end of my pregnancy. I did a blog post on pregnancy style inspiration; take a look if you want some ideas! I might do a little haul of what I buy... If that’s something you would like to see, let me know!

Stretch marks?
Still none.

I’ve been waking up a lot more recently, just because I’m finding it difficult to get comfy.

Best moment this week?
Planning our babymoon! It’s Tom’s birthday in a couple of weeks, so we are going to Manchester for the weekend and are making that our little babymoon before Baby J arrives.

Worst moment this week?
Again, I’ve not had any bad moments this week! I’ve had a few twinges, but I think that’s because my bump has grown quite a bit recently. It’s also given me a sore back.

Miss anything?
Again, missing wine quite a bit! Gosh, I must sound like such an alcoholic! I got some great advice in the comments of my week 22 update, where someone knew a girl who ordered one glass of wine when she was out, but made it the most expensive glass she could just as a treat! I think I will be doing that when we are away in a couple of weeks :)

Baby J has been very active this week! It seems to be mostly around meal times – it’s almost like its a little kick to say ‘thanks for feeding me mummy!’ Haha. Either that, or ‘you’ve eaten too much now I’m all squished!’ … probably the latter :)

Food cravings?
I’ve just been craving anything that’s not good for me! Chocolate, biscuits, pizza… and I’ve felt really guilty for it! So Tom and I have made a promise that we are going on a health kick and eat plenty of fruit and veg from now on (check back next week to see if we stuck with it!)

To help with the health kick, I’ve re-ordered my Graze boxes, which I’m super excited about! For those of you who don’t know what Graze is, you can take a look here.

As a current member, I’ve got a code that can get you your 1st, 5th and 10th box free! If you’re interested in this, let me know and I will pass on the code to you.

Anything making you feel sick or queasy?
Nothing new, still the smell of soup!

Don't know!

As I mentioned before, I’ve had a few twinges this week as well as back pain, but I think this is my bump growing and because Baby J is a lot more active recently.

Belly button in or out?

Happy or moody?
I’ve had another really good week with moods, so definitely happy!

Looking forward to?
Going on our babymoon and celebrating Tom’s birthday!

And here is the bump for 23 weeks!

If you want to see my bump shots from previous weeks (I've been taking pics since I found out I was pregnant) let me know and I will do a separate post!
