My Kelocity Baby: 23 Weeks February 11, 2012

I can physically feel the weight of the baby now. I’m realizing that it takes so much energy to do everyday things. Just rolling over in bed takes extra effort now. When something falls on the floor I actually stop to think about whether or not it’s worth bending over to pick it up. haha Baby must be on a serious growth spurt this week. I feel like I waited FOREVER for the bump to appear and now I’m freaking out because it’s already huge and I still have 17ish weeks to go! Gulp!

How I’m Feeling: The beginning of the week was rough, I caught the cold that everyone has been getting lately. It’s hard getting sick when you’re pregnant because there isn’t much medicine you’re allowed to take. None of the good stuff anyways. I took a day off of work and relaxed as best I could. Luckily some non-drowsy Benedryl did the trick and I bounced back quicker than I thought I would.

Pregnancy Woes:

  • Heartburn
  • Round Ligament Pain
  • Not being able to take cold medicine
  • Skipping yoga so I don’t get other mamas sick =( I was so sad!


Pregnancy Loves:

  • Red Grapefruit Cups. Remember when I ran out of grapefruit cups? Irving got another case from Costco last week…. and now that box is empty too. Need. More. Grapefruit. Two cases this time. (There could be worse things to eat, right?)

Items we got for the baby:

  • Aunt Janie and Uncle Jake got us this hilarious onsie from Hawaii! I love it!

Goal for this week:

  • Order the Baby Closet organizer
  • Sell some extra furniture items on craigslist
  • Walk, Walk, Walk!

Next Appointment: Next Week!

Highlights of the Week:

  • Attending a Pregnancy Social at a local baby center. The store had a lactation consultant and two doulas on hand to answer any questions we had and do a mini-panel on things we might not know. It was so great to chat for two hours with other mama-to-be’s. I learned a few things and have a list of things to research.
  • Crib and Dresser have arrived! They are currently sitting in my dining room, but still super exciting!

  • Finishing my wedding scrapbook and a few pages of my travel one too!
  • And in case you missed it, my grilled cheese sandwich was pretty epic too. (A highlight for sure!)

  1. You look great! 🙂 Not taking cold medicine was the WORST when I got a cold earlier in this pregnancy. I was miserable and since then I’ve developed pregnancy sinusitis. I always have a stuffy nose and post nasal drip and it’s been going on since October. 😦 The doctor said it would go away when baby is born but it’s still annoying.

    So glad that you are feeling better and enjoy that grapefruit! I am addicted to OJ and tomatoes…definitely pregnancy cravings to indulge in.

    Oh god, pregnancy plus a cold SUCKS. I got a cold with a horrible cough around 24 weeks and after one night of literally not a second of sleep because I couldn’t breathe through my nose, I begged the pharmacist to find me some meds I could take while pg. The cold went away, but the cough didn’t until I had the boys 5 weeks later!! Hope you’re feeling better!!

    And I definitely had the “Do I have to pee enough to go through the effort of getting off the couch?” question. Heh.
