Pregnancy Update--Week 23

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along:  23 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss:  9 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Um, yes.  I think I exploded over the past two weeks...
Best Moment this week:  Feeling the baby move regularly every day!
Gender: It's a boy!  And he doesn't have a name yet!
Movement:  Yes!  And I love it because it's not at the point where it's really painful or uncomfortable!
Food Craving:  I had been craving breakfast tacos, but my appetite has been kinda strange the past few days.
What I miss:  Sleeping on my belly and sleeping through the night!
Sleep:  I am having really strange dreams.  They always involve people I know, and somehow, they always involve people I'd prefer not to dream about!
What I am looking forward to:  The rest of the second trimester!  What were we thinking having a baby at the end of August!  My entire third trimester is gonna be over the summer!
Belly Button:  In.  It's never popped "out."  It just kinda becomes "flat."
Symptoms:  I feel great!  Just a little bit extra tired, but that's about it!  I had a lot of back problems with Carter though throughout the second half of the pregnancy, and it seems like that must go with the territory of having a boy because I've noticed the past few days that my back is hurting pretty badly by the end of the day.
I'll try to update this specific topic on Mondays since that's when we officially count the weeks.

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

I can't believe you're already at 23 weeks. I am a little offended that you always dream about people you'd prefer not to considering you said I starred in one recently! Glad you're updating the bloggy blog!

That is not the dream that I regret although I regret your decision to use "Pomp and Circumstance" as your processional. This is a recurring dream that I hate! Sometimes I stay up late and prolong going to bed just because I'm afraid that I'm gonna have this dream again!

Well you're going to have to give us a little more information than that because if I am starring in it...I'm going to be upset as well!!!
