Mommy Monday: 23 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

How far along? 23 weeks!  
Total weight gain/measurements: Weighed in at 135lbs this week - which means I've gained a grand total of 20lbs since pre-pregnancy! Omg...I only gained 24/25lbs with Emilia! I think this time I will definitely gain more!
Maternity clothes: I'm wearing maternity jeans here and a regular top/tank top.  
Stretch marks? Still no new ones! I went and bought myself some more Bio-Oil just to be on the safe side though!
Sleep: Fine, when I get enough of it! 
Best moment this week: I went to the spa this morning for a lovely pedicure. It was only for an hour but it was a much-appreciated relaxation time.
Miss anything? Nope I love being pregnant!
Movement: Yes, tons!! This boy is very active! He kicks a whole lot, to the point where I sometimes get a fright when it comes out of nowhere! But this is still my favourite part of the pregnancy. Feeling the baby move is so special :)
Food cravings: Nope!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Any kind of pills, prenatals, iron supplements, etc. It's horrible :(
Gender: Boy!
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: I have low blood pressure anyway (always have, even in my last pregnancy) and when we were in Sorrento I almost fainted & had to call the hotel doctor to get it checked out. (I was pregnant but didn't know it yet!) Lately I've been having dizzy spells and feeling really light-headed & out of breath anytime I'm standing for too long. I also know my iron levels are low so I'm supposed to be taking a supplement (which I am) but it makes me feel so nauseous and sick! So I've started taking that at night instead of the morning. Another side effect of all that is that I'm constantly tired and feel like even the simplest of tasks take a huge amount of effort. It's very frustrating! But I hope it won't last long. 
Belly button in or out? In - but I feel like it might pop out this time!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: It's a mix really - I'm happy most of the time but I'm moody when I'm feeling tired/exhausted!
Looking forward to: Our trip to Galway - we will be seeing my Oma & more family. It's Emilia's second time meeting her and the last time she was only 3 months old!



  1. Anna. I could really use advice. I currently feeling this way so very dizzy and weak. When did yours go away
