23 Weeks

How far along: 23 weeks! ("Winnie Viability!!")
Maternity clothes: Yes. Soon I'm gonna need to look into maternity workout clothes!
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep has been rough this week due to a cold
Best moment of the week:  My 28th Birthday!
Worst moment of the week: Back to reality and back to work after a week off in the Caribbean....and having a head cold all week. Talk about rough!
Running/Workouts: Went from having amazing workouts and runs last week to the hardest and roughest runs this week. Very sad to think my running days might be coming to an end...or a glacial pace. I will be looking into a belly band, hoping the support will help!
Missing anything: Being able to take any medication needed when sick
Movement: Feeling a little bit each and everyday! Still usually only at night when I lay down
Cravings: Watermelon
Energy level: Been pretty exhausted this week probably more due to the cold
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: A little emotional this week
Looking forward to: Feeling stronger and more frequent movement!
Something surprising about being pregnant: This is kind of a repeat - but holy cow I cannot get over how much a woman's body changes throughout a pregnancy. I work in Labor and Delivery, I know what term pregnant women look like. I just don't know what they looked like before they got pregnant and how much has changes. My tummy is starting to get hard. I can feel the outline of my uterus - WOW is it big! And it's only going to get BIGGER! Within the month the baby is gonna DOUBLE in size! (Let's hope I don't do the same!!) As much as it can be hard to accept the changes in my body, I still marvel at the miracle happening within and it's not so bad at all. It's actually pretty miraculous!
