Baby Jones Update - Week 23

Hey lovelies!

I'm such a terrible blogger at the minute. 
I plan on getting all sorts done and written, then totally forget, or something else takes my time away. Oh the joys of pregnancy. 
Anywho, this is a day late, but I wanted to get it done as I've just noticed that I didn't even do one for week 22 last week. Now I've finally sorted my youtube schedule/lighting situation out, hopefully the blog can take priority again. 

How far along? 23 Weeks! 
Total weight gain: I've gained a couple more pounds in the past two weeks, I think this puts me at about 10lbs gain. I have a midwife app of Wednesday so hopefully I can find out for sure then. 
Maternity clothes? Nope. Leggings are still doing the job nicely. Although the baby boobies and belly are starting to bulge out of my tank tops, so I may be needing to buy some new ones soon. 
Stretch marks? No new ones still. The old ones on my hips are definitely more noticeable now though. 
Best moment this week: Buying and building our cot! It's made it all seems more real.
Miss anything? Sleep. We've now decided that a new bed and mattress is needed because ours is awful and we're both struggling to get some good shut eye at the minute. 
Movement: Lots, getting stronger and more noticeable by the day. 
Food cravings: Not really. I'm definitely enjoying juicy fruit though. No apples please. (If you follow me on twitter/watch our daily vlogs, you will know why.)
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell when Liam was picking up dog poops in the garden. 
Gender: Boy! 
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: Nothing really, although I have been getting tired more often. 
Belly button in or out? In, but I'm starting to wonder if it will pop or not. 
Engagement ring on or off? Off! I finally got my ring back from the jewellers, but for the time being it won't go back on. Although I can't say I've noticed my fingers being much fatter. 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time, but my mood can drop like a lead weight. I'm crying at anything and everything too. Haha! 
Looking forward to: Getting the rest of the baby things. I still feel really unprepared. 

I also got my appointment for my gestational diabetes test this week, so there's two hours and two bloods tests to look forward to in the next few weeks. Not. 
I have to say, I'm really enjoying pregnancy at the minute, but I definitely getting to the point where I'm ready to this little guy. I can't wait to see what he looks like, and learn what kind of personality he has!
