Keeping up with the Pregnancy: 23 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 23 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby D is the size of a Papaya or Spaghetti Squash 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: About 11 pounds  ...
Maternity Clothes:  More and more and more. 
Gender: It's a girl!  Jocelyn Anne.   
Movement:  I have an anterior Placenta so... she hides behind her own cushion.  The only one feeling the punches and nudge's is me.  She does squirm a lot though.
Sleep: real sporadic all of a sudden. 
What I miss:  spicy tuna rolls.  
Cravings: My cravings have been fairly tame.  I enjoy my sweets.  
 I had my 23 week doctor appt yesterday and Marlys is happy with everything.  Said that she's measuring spot on for everything.  She's in the 48th percentile for height and weight which couldn't be more perfect.  :)  She'd like to see me gain about a pound a week from here on out and I'm not so sure about that.  I figure I will eat healthy and exercise as I can...  and she will continue to grow perfectly.  :)  
She does know better than I do though.  I trust her implicitly.  Next time I go for the 1 hour glucose testing... can't even believe I'm that far along.  how did THAT happen?

Looking good Jess!! By the way, I'm constantly bragging on you running the half-marathon. When my friends talk about being too tired to work out, I tell them "Yeah well, my friend Jess ran a half-marathon at 15 weeks pregnant so quit your bitchin'." OK, so I don't say it like that, but still...:)
