Week 23

How far along? 23 weeks!
Maternity clothes? Same as last week. I'm really trying to stretch my wardrobe so I have to purchase as few clothes as possible!
Stretch marks? Nope! Neither my Mom nor my Nana got them during their pregnancies so I'm hoping I hit the genetic jackpot and won't experience them either!
Sleep: Not very well :( I've had a cold for over a week and wake myself up coughing.  Poor Branch has dealt with the worst of it though, having to spend most of his nights on the couch to avoid my coughing and (oops!) snoring!
Best moment this week: A tie between up between our SPANX shopping trip and seeing baby E on Thursday! SPANX rewards their employees each year with an annual trip to Neiman Marcus so everyone has a chance to treat themselves for the holidays :)  On Thursday we had an ultrasound and everything looks great! Easton is growing at the perfect rate and is looking so much bigger and more like a baby!
Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach :(
Movement: Yes! Easton is becoming more and more active! It seems that the more I move, the more he moves in response. 
Food cravings: Branch's delicious home-made hot cocoa :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, thank goodness!
Gender: BOY!
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: My feet and hands are starting to swell. I make sure to keep my feet up during the work day, but I have a feeling it's only going downhill from here...
Belly button in or out? It's right on the line of innie/outie but now more flat than an innie. I expect it will probably pop out in the next couple weeks.
Wedding rings on or off? Half and half. I bought a "stand-in" ring that is a size larger to wear on the days when my fingers are more swollen than normal.
Happy or moody most of the time: So happy that I can't help but cry! I haven't been moody or emotional but any type of excitement puts me into tears: Christmas music, funny TV shows, seeing how large a fabric store I just discovered is...and it's an ugly cry, let me tell you!
Looking forward to: Spending time with my Dad and Stepmom next weekend when they come to visit!

Love y'all!
