I know I missed last week…that was honestly because I was just too tired to do a post.
Things have generally been going well. Kidney stone is still in a position that isn’t currently causing any issues.
How far along: 23 Weeks
How big is baby: Size of a bunch of grapes ~11.3in/28.7cm
Symptoms: Still having a lot of bloating/GI discomfort. Heartburn has been increasing. I had been able to get away with one anti-heartburn tablet a day, now I have to take one in the morning and one in the evening. Restless legs are hit and miss. I stopped taking the epson salt baths most nights. I have been trying to either do 30min on the stair stepper or a yoga video in the evenings to help.
Movement: He is super active. I’ve even been able to see some kicks/movements, but haven’t been able to catch it on video yet.
Sleep: The last couple nights I’ve slept pretty well. The day before yesterday I woke up up at 4:15 and couldn’t go back to sleep. That was a rough day.
Food cravings? Still no real strong cravings which is so strange for me. Things will sound good, but there hasn’t been anything I absolutely have to have.
Food Aversions? I don’t think I’ve had any aversions this week
Anything making you queasy or sick? the extra bloating can cause some nausea, but overall it hasn’t been too bad.
Best moment of the week? Getting our induction date officially scheduled! We are scheduled to go in the morning of 2/1/23, the day before our due date.
Next appointment: My next OB appt is Nov. 4th. We’re onto just normal appts. Likely no more ultrasounds until around 35ish weeks and no more genetic testing.
