Bump Update: 23 Weeks

Hello first trimester symptoms again! WHAT?!? Why, when? WHAT THE HECK? Seriously! I have been having some serious carb cravings and morning sickness. It is the craziest thing. And when I did give in to my cravings I felt like crap and had morning sickness. It was an evil cycle but for the most part it is what my body wanted. I am still trying to keep it clean. And will be cutting back on the carbs and eh-hem... Peanut M&M's. (they seem to be my sweets of choice for this pregnancy. Mason was ice cream, super thick chocolate shakes. Collin was Oreos. This one M&M's. I could eat them all day long! 

Oh and Monday, I got to see our little girl via ultrasound! I had my mid-pregnancy check up and everything looks great. The fun part was seeing her suck her thumb, yawn and the crazy part, seeing her kick at me and feeling it at the same time. I don't know why but it is just freaky cool! Since Monday she has been so active. I don't know what happened but it seems like she is kicking me all day and night long! Any time I want to rest she just starts going at it. "ROCK ME TO SLEEP MOM!" Anyways. It has been fun, but man she is very feisty!

 (Baby Elyse. Weighing in aprox. 1 pound 1 ounce.)

Total Weight Gain:  11 pounds total weighing in at 248.1 pounds. EEK! Well that jumped up didn't it!?! I was sick going into last week and at the beginning of this week I was up 10 because I had to weigh myself for my ultrasound appointment. So it is going up about 1/2-1 pound a week right now.

Symptoms: Just the regularly occurring headache, some morning sickness and CRAVINGS FOR CARBS! 
Baby’s Size: Papaya. Saw a papaya at the store yesterday and it was HUGE! 
Maternity Clothes: Yes, bottoms need to wear maternity or stretchy pants. Tops I wear maternity now and my bigger t-shirts.
Stretch Marks: I already have a ton that I got when I gained weight years ago. So nothing new.
Gender: GIRL!!! 
Sleep: I am only waking up once a night to go to the bathroom. I am flipping over from one side to the other a lot, but often times I end up on my back. She is starting to kick me awake at night now.
Miss Anything: Sleeping comfortably flat on my belly or back! Sleeping through the night. 
Cravings: CARBS! Big time. This is the first time where I just want to eat carbs, breads, pasta and goodies all day long! I have not been fighting it very well this week and have given in. Hence why my weight has probably gone up. Plus carbs don't really like me, so when I eat them my tummy gets all in a funk.
Aversions: nothing yet
Excited About: Picking out the coming home outfit and her first photo session outfits. (YES OUTFITS!) I can't wait to show you guys what I am getting! 
Workouts: Got in my workouts 4 days a this past week, which is awesome! I have been doing 21 Day Fix yoga & pilates specificallyDiary Of A Fit Mommy's Fit For Two 2nd Trimester workouts and the Beachbody On Demand Active Maternity 2nd Trimester workouts.
