23 Weeks

Lordy...every so often over the summer I've looked at myself and been like...
...and then somehow magically a month later, I am.  Like way more pregnant.  For example, I remember looking at this and being like, "Whoa. Super preggo!"  And now I just look back at that and laugh...I know I'll probably feel the same way about this picture in a month or so.

Reppin' my Illini!  If anyone wants to buy me these shoes to go with the tank top, feel free :)
How far along?  23 weeks
Maternity clothes? Yes but I'm starting to not love it so much...I'm constantly having to pull my pants up!  Still, they're WAY more comfortable than regular pants

Sleep:  Epic proportions now that I'm working again.  Waking up is so hard!
Best moment this week: Reading all the celeb tweets reacting to Miley's VMA performance.  How badly do I wish this snapshot was legit?!! So badly.  Still...I guess I should mention that my ACTUAL favorite part of the week was that Jacob felt Baby J kicking from the outside for the first time!!!! I've been trying to get him to catch it for weeks, and he finally did!  The trick was to get him to come over when I was watching something on my laptop.  She always starts moving around when I have something on...this time it was Friends but it was actually kind of an inappropriate scene so...that got weird real quick.

Miss Anything? Nah, I'm pretty content.  Maybe not being so hungry all the time...haha
Movement:  Oh yes!

Food cravings:  Um...CHOCOLATE.  Oh my gosh, today I literally thought I would die I wanted chocolate so badly.  There was someone in my vicinity eating chocolate today and didn't offer to share.  It was so rude.  They didn't exactly know me, but still.  You don't just eat chocolate in front of a pregnant lady and not offer to share. It all turned out ok though because Jacob bought some ice cream and Reese's and we made shakes after dinner. #heavenly #cravingquenched #fornow...
Anything making you queasy or sick:  No
Have you started to show yet:  Whoa baby, yes.  I actually started bumping into things with my stomach while walking around the classroom I'm subbing in.  Want to know how to make an 8th grader any normal human feel awkward?  Knock into them with your huge protruding belly.  Go ahead, give it a try. It's hilarious.  
Gender:  Girl
Labor Signs:  No
Belly Button in or out?  In...but not for long.  Little known fact, folks: my belly button used to be an outie.  True story. I was about 6 years old, just hanging out   doin' like I do   
chilling  playing with my belly button and I just all of a sudden...pushed it in.  Just like that.  And then I had an innie.  For like...ever.  Anyway, this past week I was just hanging out   doin' like I do   chilling  playing with my belly button and almost popped it back to an outie.  Seriously guys, should I be concerned about this?  More importantly, what am I doing with my life that I have so much time to be playing with my belly button?  
Wedding rings on or off?  Yeah, off again.  Forget that noise.
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy!  No more tears this week!
Looking forward to:  Cooler weather!!  Not even coat weather, just jeans or something.  Weather where I can drink apple cider and hot cocoa and not feel too weird about it


  1. I completely hear you with the constantly having to pull your pants up... I'm there too! :) Do you have any of those belly bands? (I think you can get them at Target) I've been wearing one of those as an extra layer of support, and they help keep my pants up pretty well. Just a thought. :) Congratulations again, by the way! I don't know if I ever said congrats! :)

  2. Thanks!!!! That's a really good idea, I'll have to get me one of those!
