23 weeks pregnant

I’m 23 weeks pregnant!
If you missed it, check out my last update
This week our little guy is the size of a large mango, mmmm yummy!!
He’s weighing over half a kilo now and is around 29cm long!
An exciting development this week is that his hearing is getting better and can hear more and more of the world!

Here’s me this week:
23 weeks pregnant

Bump Measurement: 39 inches (+1.5 inches in a week, biggest growth so far!)

This week with Arthur being poorly I’ve hardly had a minute to think about being pregnant!!
Luckily, little kicks are there to remind me!

I’m struggling with sleep this week.  I’m sure some this will be down to be worried about Arthur but Mark has reliably informed me it was about this time last time that sleep went down hill…..feels like a long way to go with rubbish sleep but I guess it’s preparing me for when little man arrives!!!!!

I’ve been getting dizzy spells the last couple of days.  I don’t remember having this before and it’s definitely not something I’m prone to outside of pregnancy.  I hope it’s not a symptom that sticks around it’s really not nice!

It could of course be down to it being SO hot here at the moment.  I mean really hot, and humid….. Not nice for a big pregnant mama!!!  You may have seen me moaning about that on twitter this week!

A couple of weeks ago I said that I thought the pregnancy cravings were over.  My Balsamic vinegar is still in full swing.  This week I made a paste out of white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to clean a stain on the sink (a Pinterest suggestion) and it took all my willpower not to eat it!!  I think it was just the smell of vinegar was so strong!….. The stain didn’t remove either by the way, very annoying!
I also had to refrain from drinking balsamic straight out the bottle!!

I have started my Online pregnancy fitness and I’m really enjoying it!  I’ll have a post up this week with some more info about it!

I’ll be back next week with my 24 week update.
