Week 23, Here We Go!

This is my first blog post!!!  

I am now in my 23rd week of pregnancy and I am really starting to feel very pregnant.  Brandon is starting to kick and move around A LOT.  His kicks are powerful enough for others to feel as well (this is kinda neat).  He likes to sit really low in my belly so I constantly feel like I have to go to the bathroom which I don't like, especially when I have to wake up about 5 times in the middle of the night.  A couple of weeks ago we had our second trimester testing done which measures all of Baby Brandon's body and checks on all of his organs to make sure everything is developing correctly.  Everything looks great and the ultrasound showed that so far he is pretty big for his gestational age.  I am hoping that he keeps this up and maybe he will get a tall gene from somewhere in the family!!!  Some pics below of little man.

He has giant feet!!!  Just like his daddy :)
Brandon's profile
How far along? 23 weeks
Stretch marks? I think a few small ones are starting to come around.  :(
Sleep: It depends.  Some nights are better than others.  I wake up a lot having to go to the bathroom though.
Best moment this past week: Really starting to feel Brandon kick now.  
Food cravings: Veggies. 
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie!!!  Maybe mine won't pop out :)
What I miss: Wine!!!  I think this is because I just had a fabulous weekend with the girls.
What I am looking forward to: Nick being able to finally feel Brandon kick.  Brandon will stop every time Nick tries to feel him.  It's kinda funny :)
Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy this now because it's going to get a lot harder.
