week 23, day 4


  • I have gained 14 lbs so far
  • This belly is really something.  I had a big growth spurt which put some strain on my lumbar area.  I am strictly in maternity pants now, and I can still get by with a few of my skirts.  I can now see more of my belly button than ever before - it is not popping out, but it is right at the surface.
  • Baby boy's heartbeat is currently 160 bpm. 
  • Notice the slightest bit of baby proofing in the photo above [plug protectors]?  We have also checked and re-checked the LATCH systems in both of our vehicles.  Mine came with a kit of pieces from Volkswagen that I had to install under my rear seats.  I never knew what the little hooks behind the headrests were for, but now I know.
  • I am currently stressing over where the baby items are going to go in the kitchen.  I have all of my cabinets organized, and it is a little unnerving to think about what will lose it's spot to be replaced by the baby-ness.  I currently walk around the kitchen a few times a week, open all the cabinets, get frustrated, and just leave the room.  Who knew this would be so difficult!?! 
  • The name quest is still going strong!
