Week 23

I am 23 weeks today!
By this week, the baby should weigh almost 1 pound and be about 8 inches long.  He should be about the size of a small doll.  His daily workout routine includes moving the muscles in the fingers, toes, arms, and legs regularly. And I can feel a good bit of that.  He should be able to hear and react to sounds from the outside world as well as hear my voice and others around. 
I feel great.  We vacationed this past week and I enjoyed it but could tell that my energy level was not like previous vacations.  I get tired a lot faster and have to rest more often.  The rocking motion from the ship did not bother me at all (which surprised a lot of people).  What did bother me was all of the different smells! 

I enjoyed eating a lot of seafood this past week.  I had oysters, catfish, red snapper, tilapia, lobster, crab, and shrimp cooked in many different ways.  It was all very delicious!!  I also ate a lot of ice cream and enjoyed drinking decaf coffee.  I have not had coffee since finding out I was pregnant but did drink decaf with several meals this past week.  It was more like flavored milk because I would mix it half and half but it was good!

I am getting to the stage where it is getting more uncomfortable to sleep at night.  Besides the fact that I use the bathroom numerous times, I am finding it harder and harder to find a position to rest in.  I think this has a lot to do with me feeling tired during the day.

Keep praying!!  Only 4 more months to go.
