Bump Update- Week 23

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 23 weeks, as of Friday (April 20)
Size of baby: 11.5 inches, 1.1 lbs (a large mango)
Maternity Clothes: Maternity Pants-yes! I also have some maternity shorts now which are wonderful since its already like 85 most days here in Houston.  I think I am going to stay indoors all summer. :) Also lots of tank tops that are just a bigger size from Target/Old Navy. My sister-in-law gave me a TON. wonderful :)
Gender: sweet BOY!
Movement: Yes, he keeps hiccuping and I am still feeling movement randomly. Not much during the day but when I am still and laying down at night that is when he starts moving.  Still not feeling from the outside except for every now and then.. Drew is very ready for that to get consistent! :)
Sleep: I am still waking up 2 times to pee, and waking up several times from leg cramps. I am kind of just getting used to it though! Other then that when I am asleep I sleep soo good, so that is great!
What I miss: all of my clothes.. nothing really. I have really enjoyed being pregnant.. especially the 2nd trimester. I am sure once I am in the third trimester and burning up and uncomfortable my thoughts might change a little bit... :)
Cravings: Chick-Fil-A still always sounds great..ha! I only have it probably once every 2 or 3 weeks but when I do.. wonderful!  Also I have been drinking crystal light tropical punch juice a lot, so yummy! 
Symptoms:I've been having lots of round ligament pain, my doctor just says he is growing a lot right now and that is why, nothing to be worried about. It doesn't hurt all the time, just randomly and mostly when I go to stand up or am moving around a lot. I do believe that he is growing though, that's for sure! haha :) But my back really has not been hurting anymore (I am sure that will return though!) so that has been nice!
Best Moment this week: Last Friday we got his room painted. I'll post pictures once it is more complete. I LOVE it though. Also, I refinished a buffet table that was my Gram's to use as his changing table, got it put in the room last night and it looks great! As Drew was putting on the knobs and I was folding some baby clothes he said.." I can't believe we are getting our son's room together" it is still so surreal at times but I am so ready for August and to meet this sweet boy! I have never wanted a summer to go by so quickly in my life :)
