Yep, I’m 23 weeks already!
So far, no cravings really. I feel like I’m either craving healthy stuff or super bad for me sweets. But as long as I “indulge” in the first, I’m not beating myself up over eating cookies. 😉
HEY! It’s what the baby wants! Yes, the baby wants that cake! And no, he told me I can’t share…
”wait, she said he”
You caught me, we’re having another boy! Boys are awesome and I cannot WAIT to meet this little cutie man! 🙂
I’ve also been craving ice cold water, and have been adding lime and cucumber slices from our garden to it. Thanks to my friend Carissa for letting me in on that tip way back when. So yum!
Other than that… Lily’s starting to get it, I ask her where the baby is and she points to my stomach with a huge, silly grin “right there!” Kinda like it’s a game, but okay, I’ll take it! Ben is 15 months, a month older than Lily was when he was born, so he has no clue. But I show him my belly, point to it and say “baby” and he gets the SWEETEST smile on his face. Then starts playing peek-a-boo with my shirt and having the cutest little sheepish smirk I have ever seen.
I love my kids. I feel so blessed that we’re having another.
Yes, there are days when I want to rip out my hair, cry, scream, throw myself down on the floor.
(and days where I’ve done it… kinda. Maybe a bit more gracefully.)
But there were days like that before I was married, where school got to be too much, my job got to be too much, and I stressed out.
I'll have stress in my life regardless of how many kids I have, so bonus points! I’ll take the stress of being a mom and/or being pregnant ANY DAY!
So that’s that. I don’t even know why I started this post, lol. I just felt like I needed to talk to a good friend and you all have been such great friends. Even when I don’t get back to you and respond to your comments, email, visit YOU, and comment. I’ve sucked at that. :-/ But I love you all, and I’m so glad you’ve been here hanging out with me for coming up on 2 years at the end of this month.
I hope you’re doing well and having a good day yourself. 🙂
You look great! I am jsut behind you...21 weeks, due at the end of January! I've been craving milk and cereal a lot with this baby. I'll have to try the cucumber in the water, sounds refreshing!
You look great! How exciting that it is a boy!
How cute are you (and lil man in there)?!? When I was preggo with my son, I too craved cold things (especially water). Everybody looks at me like I have three heads when I say that now. They also think I'm a weirdo for putting a cucumber slice in my water - until they try it! It really is the best thing ever! YUM!
Aw, look how cute you are! Wish I looked like that at 23. Pshaw, I look like that at 10. I wish I was kidding.

Congrats on another lil guy! When I was preggo with our daughter I had no desire to do my usual online things. And I suddenly started liking chocolate ice cream. Pregnancy can be so weird. hahaBlessings, Jessica
Congrats on your new little boy coming soon! You are so tiny for 23 weeks! haha I look like that at 15 weeks. You look awesome! I had the healthy food cravings for a while too- green apples and naked juice! And ice cream of course. Whatever makes mama and baby happy! :)Bekahbeckaboots.blogspot.com
