23 weeks {babybrink#2}


Size of baby: a large mango. I thought we hit the mango stage already, but I guess I was wrong? Ha ha! All I know is that my bump is proof that somethin' is growing inside. I just hope there's not a second one hiding in there because it seems like my belly has grow like crazy these past 3 weeks ;)

Movements: he's a mover and I love it! Although I've been noticing that he is getting higher... I feel movements above the belly button now. The days of sore, bruised ribs are getting closer and closer, ha!

Cravings: I don't really recall any specific cravings this week... probably because I went crazy and ate everything I wanted (oops!) If I had to choose, chocolate cake is at the top of my list! Or chocolate frosted donuts, or chocolate milk... I guess this babe is a fan of chocolate ;)

Miss anything: I really tried to soak up being "comfortable" before the bump appeared...especially being able to bend over and pick Mia up easily. I feel like in the 3 short weeks that I popped, my comfort levels have gone downhill WAY too quickly, ha! I'm already missing sitting comfortable without having to adjust my position every 10 minutes ;)

Random: a stranger commented on my bump for the first time this pregnancy! She asked if I knew what I was having yet, but I could tell that as soon as the words spilled out of her mouth she was definitely hoping I was actually pregnant and that she didn't just put her foot in her mouth ;) ha ha! I also heard a couple whispered, "oh she's so cute!" at the pool! I didn't feel cute at the moment so that was nice to hear!

Best moment of the week: soaking up a little getaway, or "babymoon", with Eric! I kind of disappeared from social media last week for privacy reasons, but my parents came to town and watched Mia while Eric and I went on a short cruise. It was just the relaxing vacation we'd been needing and it was SO great to reconnect and relax together! Of course we knew that Mia was in good hands (and being spoiled rotten) but coming home to her was the sweetest reunion! She missed her parents! I'm so glad Eric and I were able to get in one last "hurrah" before we have our boy!

I totally understand disappearing for privacy reasons, I'm like that too. I don't like to highlight big trips away or post too much while on vacation, 1] for the crazies out there and 2] I like to be on vacation and not worrying about 'bragging' for those back home. So glad you enjoyed yourself and that Mia had fun being spoiled! You look great, as always friend!

Love that outfit! You definitely make pregnancy look cute :) Chocolate is pretty much always high on my list, so not sure I could pass that off as a pregnancy craving, but all that stuff you mentioned sounds yummy.
