Just over Half Way There

I'm not a fan of pregnancy photos, mostly because I become huge. and this pregnancy is no exception, but I figure, what the heck. you can't see my chubby face anyway. :)
I'm at 23 weeks now. I am feeling better but I am still taking medication for nausea. I'm taking half the dose I was taking before, so I guess that is a good sign. I'm doing pretty good so far. My hip has been hurting on one side and I assume it is because of loose joints. I suppose that will go away soon though. I can feel my little girl move around in there all the time now.Randy and Jacob have also felt her kick so that is fun.

Here is what she is up to: "she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

So far so good!

I love your little baby bump! I think it looks cute (even if you may disagree). Wow, 23 weeks. I always say this, but the weeks sure do fly by when it's not my pregnancy.

I'm getting excited for another little one to join our family!

You don't look huge.

Check out Chiropractic. It did wonders for my hips during pregnancy. It's also been shown to increase the efficiency of delivery since the birth canal is more aligned.
