Pregnancy Update: 23 Weeks

23w 2d. After a long tiring day, I changed into PJs as quickly as possible. Thanks for all the PJs, mom! ;)

How far along? 23 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 24 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: 131 lbs even! I don't think that's too bad after four Thanksgiving celebrations over two weeks!!

Maternity clothes: Definitely! With that and PJs, there's no other way to comfortably function.

Stretch marks? None yet... but they're coming. I feel 'em coming!

Sleep: Sleep is SO awesome with the Snoogle. I can't believe how long I functioned without proper use of my Snoogle!

Best moment this week: It's not pregnancy related, but actually getting some financial things in order has brought SUCH mental relief... ! Aaaand confirming some details for the baby shower. Woo hoo!

Worst moment of the week: The constant upper back pain is SOOO uneventful... that and anticipating the glucose test... Every recent female relative has failed the 1- and 3- hour tests and therefore have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. :(

Miss anything? I miss the financial and emotional stability that came with living on my own. Living with relatives have caused me to revert back to my childish stage... Pretty sure it's an Asian thing.

Movement: SOOO MUCH! Lamby is constantly hustling and bustling inside the womb. It's incredible how active it is!

Food cravings: Nothing... but I've been leaning more towards sweets after all the savory foods over the holiday.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!

23w 2d

Have you started to show yet: Ooooh, yes! The proof is in the pictures!

Gender Prediciton: 31 days until the baby shower!

Labor signs: The Braxton Hicks are actually a constant nuisance... ! Whenever one comes on, it's actually extremely debilitating.

Symptoms: My symptoms include: Braxton Hicks, dull appearance (Where is the pregnancy glow?! Strangers/Loved ones say I'm glowing, but I have yet to actually feel beautiful... !), back aches... and my temper is short (the latter could be due to familial things...)

Belly button in or out? In... slowly becoming an outtie?

Wedding rings on or off? On! Still a 5-1/4 size!

Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! Then moody over the course of the past two days.

Looking forward to: My OBGYN appointment and glucose test next week! I'm excited to get some answers and get this damn test done and over with!


  1. Awww..You look adorable with your bump, Jenny. I didn't even know you're expecting. A huge congrats! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy =)

    1. Aww thanks, Sydney!! I was scouring your blog for some pregnancy tips and found a few good ones! :) I'm gonna double my Longchamp bag as a diaper bag! ;)
