Doctor's Appointment & Quiz

We had our monthly appt with the doc today. Everything checked out great! Baby's HB was 170 and she was all kicks and jumps during the appointment. I love the swooshing sounds that makes on the doppler. I am so in love with her already!! Here's a picture from today...
Weekly quiz...

How far along: 23 weeks, 1 day

Total Weight Gain: 12 lbs

Symptoms: A little heartburn recently...nothing a couple Tums can't fix. Other than that I feel fantastic!

Stretch Marks: Yeah I got some small ones...I'm not going to answer this question anymore. Stretch marks are inevitable and I'm not going to bring myself down every week thinking about them. It's a very small price to pay be able to experience pregnancy. Something I prayed and prayed to experience, so f*ck the stretch marks!! It's not like I was planning on wearing a bikini ever again anyway!! Haha

Sleep: I sleep very well! Lots of crazy dreams though....

Best Moment Last Week: Ben finally got to feel the baby kick. Her head was down so her legs were pointing up and she was kicking just above my belly button. He put his hand on my belly and right then and she kicked harder than ever before twice directly under his palm. Both times Ben short of jumped with surprise, wide-eyed and yelled, "Wow!" "Wow!" It was so Baby Morgan knew it was her daddy and wanted to make sure he could feel her in there.

Movement: Every day...all the time. I love it!!!

Food Cravings: Fresh T O M A T O E S !!! Seriously I have been on a 'mater rampage. I've made caprese salads, bruschetta, BLT (heavy on the T) sandwiches, tomato and basil on name it! I've liked tomatoes in the past but recently they have been the best things on earth. Yum!

What I Miss: Being able to shave my lady business...I can't see over my belly anymore and I hate pubic hair. I mean I REALLY hate it!! I have always shaved (yeah...ALL of it) regularly so this is a new obstacle for me. I am considering getting a Brazilian wax...but I'm a little afraid. A) I know it hurts, but just how much?? And B) Pregnant lady getting a Brazilian? I'm afraid of the waxer person thinking I'm crazy or worse yet that I'm an over weight, pregnant stripper-hoe or something...what should I do???? Please help! Anyone who has experience in the field please fill me in!!

What am I looking forward to: Figuring out how to solve the problem listed above...

Milestones: Seeing baby kick on the outside for the first time this week and Ben being able to feel her move too!

How is Daddy? The best daddy ever!! He left work and drove all the way across town to meet me at the doctor's. Today was the shortest of appointments...a short weight in, blood pressure check, a quick listen to baby's HB, then pee in a cup and out the door. Super quick, but Ben wanted to be there with me and the baby. He is so supportive and interested and it makes me feel so loved. Today we are celebrating 5 years together and I still get those butterflies when I think about how much I love him. I am such a lucky Momma!!


  1. Great update! Wanted to share that when I went to get a wax for my wedding the lady used dry wax and claims it's less painful, it wasn't bad and she talked the whole time to keep my mind off of it. ALSO, she said that most of her clientelle are delivery nurses that see women's hoo-ha's all the time and book it to get theirs waxed!!!! I thought that was interesting and I have never forgotten it. I hate pubic hair too. Good luck, I would think you would be fine if you went to a nice reputable spa.

  2. I'm glad you brought up the hair discussion- I was kinda scared to let my husband "mow the lawn".

    Your belly looks fabulous!!! I can't believe you're already 23 weeks along. She'll be here before you know it.

  3. Aw, you look fabulous! Congrats on celebrating your anniversary too, what a fantastic way to celebrate!

  4. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! You look FABULOUS! I'm actually a little jealous of your round belly. It's just so perfect. You know what I have decided to do? Although I want to get a waxing (I would just do a bikini wax, but I hear that any waxing in the Nether Lands hurts when pregnant), I have decided I will bring a mirror into the shower with me so I can SEE what I am shaving. If you're going to groom, it helps to see what you are grooming.

  5. Ahhh you are looking so cute!!!! So happy to hear that little Morgan is making big kicks for daddy to feel!

    Do let me know what you decide on the Brazillian. I have been doing my grooming blind but have discovered that I am missing A LOT! I am trying to get over the same two worries! I'll do it if you do! Ready...set...go!

  6. Ok your comment about being a crazy stripper hoe, made my day. You are so funny. I would go with the Brazilian, I am too sacred to do one. Heard they are crazy painful. But if you hate pubes I think it would be worth it. Your belly is so cute! You are glowing.

    Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. I need them! You're the best!

  7. OMG I'm in the same boat ... I have to take a shower sitting on a shower chair now and later DH shaves my legs for me while I'm lying in bed on some towels (so random but I get so grossed out about not shaving after a couple days). I'm like you about my lady bits. I have been keeping it up blindly but can tell I'm missing areas. I HATE it. I can't wait to be able to see down there again. Sigh.

    But all that aside, you look fabulous and I'm so glad everything is going so well. I think it's so sweet how involved your husband is, too!!
