It's been a while....

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, but there hasn't been much going on lately.  Just passing time until my next OB appt and then our 4-D ultrasound. 

Here's the uneventful update I know you've been waiting for:

How far along? 23 weeks and 2 days....I can't believe I'm this.close to 3rd Tri.

Weight gain/loss: About 11 pounds up.  Luckily, I feel like it's all belly.  I'm still using the Bell.a Band to hold up my pants because they are too big even with my growing belly.

Maternity clothes? Love them!  Just last night, I had on a pair of yoga pants that were not maternity.  Even though they have an elastic waistband, they were SO TIGHT!

Stretch marks? Just the belly...I guess I could consider it one big stretch mark or several small ones.  Not sure what the better option is.

Sleep? Definitely lacking.

Best moment since last update? Mr. MBC felt one of the boys last night.  It wasn't exactly kicking or nudging, but there was definite movement up near my ribs.  It's weird being able to feel movement on the outside.

Food cravings: Still loving a chicken biscuit in the morning. 

Genders: TWO BOYS!!!! Double trouble :)

Belly button in or out? It's an innie, but it's growing.

Movement? Yes!  It's like it happened over night.  I'm pretty sure I'm still feeling just one of the boys consistently.  And, let's go ahead and admit it - they have their days and nights mixed up. 

What I miss? Sleeping

What I'm looking forward to:My mom is coming up this weekend we are going to do some shopping for the boys.  I have not bought one thing for the boys yet.  I know that when I start, there  will be no stopping me. 

Milestones: Nursery furniture and bedding picked out!  My parents are buying the bedding for both cribs as a gift.  I'll post later this week with pics of the furniture, bedding and other decor ideas for the nursery.


  1. Sounds like things are going great! Glad to hear it.

  2. Now I need a chicken biscuit. :)


Have you seen my baby carriage?
