23 week bump date – Oh the joys of pregnancy

I’m 23 weeks and 3 days pregnant…and I officially bent over this morning and peed a little.
// Top // Plaid // Pants (old) // Booties //

I’ve got an appointment next week where they’ll be doing that whole glucose test thing
to check if I have gestational diabetes…at least I think that’s what they’re testing for!
Appointments just aren’t quite as fun when there’s not an ultrasound involved,
But i’m so thankful for a healthy pregnancy so far.
I know a lot of times people have to get ultrasounds regularly when something isn’t quite right,
so I’ll consider it a HUGE blessing!

Baby boy has been kicking up a storm lately and I’m not going to lie,
all I want to do is lay there and watch him move around in my tummy all day long…
It’s so fun being able to see his movements on the outside now!

I’ve got a question for all you mamas!
Did you go through a period of panic where you just felt like the nursery HAD to be done
RIGHT AWAY or else the world was going to end?
Because i’m totally going through that right now and I don’t know how to make it stop!
Part of me is like, “okay, chill – we’ve still got plenty of time!”
Then the other part of me is saying, “DO IT NOW. Anything can happen, be prepared for everything”
I originally had everything on our registry, including big nursery items.
But I finally convinced Kyle to let us order the crib last night,
it should be arriving early next week and I couldn’t be more excited about it!!
Also, feel totally relieved even though the baby won’t be sleeping in it at first?!
Gosh hormones are weird.

I think once the nursery is done it’ll feel even more real,
and that’s why i’m so anxious/excited to get started.

In case y’all haven’t noticed the hair on my head is growing at an alarming rate,
literally touches my ass…I’m getting a MUCH needed haircut today and I’m so pumped about it.
Oh, and while we’re on the subject of hair, I’m pretty positive my eyelashes are falling out?
Is that a pregnancy symptom? Someone help, putting on mascara has become a total nightmare.
Alright, that’s it for today…
Gotta clean the house, run some errands and then drive all the way across town to the only lady I trust to touch my hair!!

Happy Hump (or bump) Day!!

    You are getting closer! 🙂 I think it’s natural to want everything ready, just in case.
    Pregnancy looks good on you. All I remember about my pregnancies was feeling huge for so long.

    Lol! My first pregnancy i had such bad nesting issues i yelled at my husband for not cutting down the tree that fell in our backyard. It was a few days before delivery and he kept saying it wasn’t hurting anything and he’ll take care of it during his days off after baby was born but i was sooooo anxious. Then my second i freaked because the garage was messy. Poor guy. Now this one im finally a little more calm but still want random things cleaned that dont effect my baby at all! And yes hair falls out and even more so after delivery but it all comes back eventually 🙂

    Your shirt is so adorable and you’re absolutely glowing! I think so many mamas-to-be experience a little bit of panic over the nursery getting done, and I think that once you can feel like that’s settled, you’ll feel like you’re ready to rock. Thanks for sharing!

    I haven’t been pregnant before so I’m unsure what it’s like but I’ve heard that the hormones can take over and make you feel like you need to get it all done super quickly haha. Hang in there, mama.
