**********23 weeks**********

At 23 weeks Moyashi is about as large as a mango and... from
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.
Oh yeah, I've been playing music, some of my favorites are songs by Vasquez Sounds and other soft rock and R&B. I usually listen to music in the morning hours as I blog or get ready for the day... and she usually moves around when she hears it, it's so cool.

This past week: 

Vlog *coming soon*
You can see Week 22 Vlog HERE


Total weight gain: 6 lbs (+1 from week 20 to week 23) - 191 lbs
Maternity clothes? Haven't bought anything new. I bought a few more maternity shirts but have still been wearing regular shirts to. The shirt above is just a XL shirt that I got from Cato (a "Women's" store a few months ago).
Stretch marks? My sister has been begging me for a bare belly shot. Being overweight (obese) I said I would share all... if I find some alone time this week, maybe I will. But I am glad that my bump is visible, had a few strangers ask my due date!

Skin & Hair:
Ahhh, my itchyness is gone. I've been taking relaxing showers, even sitting in the tub a few times. Also been using conditioner, so that may be helping. No pimples! Yeah! The only blemish that did pop up was NOT on my face. It was right smack down between my boobies! :D It was only there for like a day or two.
Belly button in or out? In and puffy still, really puffy.

Can you see your toes? Yes, but if I stand straight up and look down, NO!


Gender: **IT'S A GIRL**
Best moment this week: Hmm... I'm not sure. Oh, I know! Bought Moyashi her first official Newborn outfit (shared it on Youtube)! I love it and it was FREE! Still thinking of a theme (and a name), but nothing set yet.

Food cravings:
Hotdog with mustard (which I hate mustard) and spicy foods! I'm so glad I'm not cravy carby foods cus I got GD, so that's good.

Anything making you queasy or sick:
Sweets! I know! Still the same, it's just something about them, leaves me an after taste, YUCK!

Labor signs:
Still getting occasional tightening, braxton hicks if ya wanna call them that. Only had like two in the past three weeks, so they calmed down this month.
Lower back pains, hungry and peeing a whole lot... that pretty much sums it up!


 Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! Hubs says I've been more happy in this pregnancy than in my other two. Don't know if that's good or bad. **UPDATE** Hubs and I have been cat fighting lately, not bad, but just like "silent treatment," and that's kinda odd for us.
Looking forward to: Shopping! Went to my grandmothers house to give her some of my stockpile this week and she said I popped out and I was glowing! Awww, so she said she wanted to go shopping with me this weekend to pick some things out for the baby. I was waiting till another two weeks so I can use my HEB $10 catalinas but I could go shopping this week. Also, my "step" father-in-law (long story) is coming to visit as well, so I think he may bring gifts of plenty or cash. 

What made me cry this week: Well, hubs yelled at me and told me to stop couponing!! *tear* I didn't cry, but I did shed a tear. It was only because I misscalculated by a dollar or two as well as not included tax. He thinks I spent too much ($11.34 and got back $10). He's over it now, after I got him his Pepsi and Digiorno Pizza!

Medical Stuff: My insurance changed, so haven't seen a doctor yet. But don't miss the waiting... waiting for a call back from the new doctor. Sugars have been good/bad when I check it.

Thoughts from the family: Hubs and I have been name hunting like crazy, just can't get it right. There is one or two that sticks out, but not a definite. The girls kiss my belly good night and that's pretty much it.

Miss anything? No other news for now...


  1. Moyashi is the pre-define name of baby?

    Sheila burnett

  2. Moyashi is our nickname for the baby... we still can't come up with a name for the baby. I will probably be having a naming contest on my youtube channel sometime soon.
