23 Weeks

23 Weeks: Baby O2 is the size of a large mango.  
He/she weighs just over 1 pound and is 11 inches long!  This week the baby has developed the sense of movement and his/her hearing has become more keen.  The baby hears what we hear, just muffled.

How far along? 23 Weeks
Total weight gain? Up 10 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Not yet but will probably be in the maternity pants before long.  Even with the rubberband or the belly band, the pants are having trouble staying pulled up to where they should be.  
Stretch marks? Nope- lathering on my cocoa butter.
Sleep? Still sleeping awesome- minus one night where I was up all night with violent/scary nightmares.  Lawn mower wrecks, stage 4 cancers, zombies, etc... all of them were awful and kept me awake!
Best moment this week? Taking Cole to the pumpkin patch to see his reaction :)  Oh man was he excited to look at and do everything.  Of course he loved the wagon ride, the tractor ride, climbing on the toys, and seeing the farm puppy.  I hope I can always remember the squeal he let out when he saw a bright yellow pumpkin in the field while we were pulling him in the wagon. We stopped to let him out and he ran straight to it.  Of course that's the one we had to get, so he "helped" Daddy cut it off the vine and everything.  He loves his little yellow pumpkin!
Miss anything? Nothing this week.
Movement? Still the most movement at night and big enough where you are starting to see my stomach bulge out.
Food cravings? Nothing crazy at all.
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nada!
Gender? 118ish days and then we'll know :)
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? Crazy preggo dreams and the baby belly that even strangers are starting to notice now!
Belly button in or out? Still in but very shallow.
Wedding rings on or off? Off and at the jewelers still... :( Definitely ready to have them back!
Happy or moody? Happy/peaceful... amazing what a weekend at home will do for you!  After being gone all but one weekend in September it felt SO good to stay home and get some things done around the house.  The biggest one being that I finally had a chance to completely purge/organize my closet.  I was in my happy zone for those few hours while Trent and Cole did guy stuff.
Looking forward to? 3 day weekend woop woop!  Here in Emporia they let you do your workdays offsite.  So, on Friday we have a doctor appointment for the baby and then I can "work" from home ;)
Daddy/Big Brother Cole moment?  Trent's new toy, his riding lawn mower, arrived on Friday and it was like Christmas around here for the boys.  I honestly don't know who was more excited- Cole or Trent.  They both grinned and laughed like fools which of course melted me.  They had the best time riding around the yard together and Cole now walks himself right out to the shop nightly to go sit on the mower and make vroom noises.  He is all boy!!
