23 Week Update

How many weeks?  I'm 23 weeks!  This is the longest I have ever been pregnant.  I'm so happy to have made it to 23 weeks.

How am I feeling?  I''m still feeling good, but I'm definitely feeling bigger.  I'm back to sleeping well.  I haven't been waking up in the middle of the night unless Rachel or Haley wake me up.  I'm enjoying feeling Kayla move more and more.  She is definitely an active one.  I'm starting to feel more confident and peace of mind that things will continue to go well for this pregnancy and that I will make it to full term (or at least close to full term).  I'm so glad as well to be up and about and not be on bed rest.  I hope that lasts. 

Weight gain?  I don't know exactly how much I have gained since last week.  We were out of town this Labor day weekend and I didn't weigh myself.  Seeing how much I ate this past weekend I know I have gained some weight.  I'll update my weight gain next week. 

Doctors appointment?  Not this week.  My appointment with my OB last week was good.  I got another peek at Kayla on the ultrasound.  All continues to look good.  My OB is awesome and I feel at ease with him.

Cravings?  I still haven't had any strange cravings.  I'm just hungry most of the time and eat what I am in the mood for.     

Baby preparation?  Even though we have a lot of clothes that Rachel and Haley wore, I did get a couple of new things for Kayla.  Its so much fun to look at newborn little girls clothes again.


  1. This is so fun. THank you so much for sharing so much of this pregnancy with us. I just read these and marvel that we have been on this journey with you for the past THREE YEARS! It is amazing, and a blessing and we are so exciting for you and Thomas!

  2. Good to hear that this pregnancy is going so well! I'm glad you're beyond 23 weeks, can only get better now, right?

  3. Happy 23 weeks! You look beautiful! You will continue to be pregnant for a long time. Praying for you. Love, Claudia

  4. I love the name you have picked for your new little girl! I love Rachel (naturally :) and Haley's names and Kayla goes so well with their names!

  5. Congratulations on being 23 weeks along. I have to tell you that I absolutely adore the name Kayla. It is one of my most favorite names right now.

  6. So excited for your family! Congratulations on passing 23 weeks! I love reading about your pregnancy, and seeing the updates on Rachel and Haley too. What miracles they all are!
