23 Weeks

How far along: 23 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +8 lbs.
Maternity clothes: I got some black pants from Ta.rget but they're horrible! They're the kind with no waistband but a really long tummy panel. It does nothing to keep the jeans up so I'm constantly having to pull them up. I got two shirts from Ta.rget as well and they're good so far.
Sleep: I woke up the other night and was on my tummy. I had pushed the pillow out of the way. I turned over and my tummy felt really funny and I was having a hard time breathing. It took like half a day to feel normal (both my tummy and my breathing).
Food cravings/aversions: At my last appt my OB recommended protein bars since I was off meat and don't really like beans. I got these:

They taste kinda funny, but they're palatable. Except that claim about being filling? Yeah, they're not! Not to a pregnant woman anyways.
Gender: Boy!! We've agreed on one name. We haven't decided if it's going to be the first or middle name yet. Traditionally men in my family aren't given middle names so that their unofficial middle name can be their mother's maiden name. So yes I'm considering that.
Movement: Everyday! Although since the "tummy" night, they've been less. Starting to freak me out.
Best moment this week: Buying some stuff for GV. It was so cute and of course had a soccer ball on it.
What I miss: Peeing at a normal speed! It takes me so long to do so little!
I am looking forward to: Kevin being able to feel GV move.

They are def more expensive, but I have NO regrets about spending money on two pairs of nice Gap maternity jeans. I tried Target, Old Navy, Motherhood, and Kohls...nothing compares.

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.
