How far along: 23 weeks today! 119 days to go!
What baby is up to: Baby girl is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango). Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
I'm pretty sure she has had hiccups a couple of times this week, it feels like little jumps in the same spot over and over- I love it! There have also been a few times that my belly has been lopsided when she gets curled up in a strange spot :)
What we've been up to: This week we put her crib together (awesomeness), celebrated Father's Day, and we have seen (not just felt) her kick!
My feet and ankles are swollen and after a long day of sitting at my desk my tail bone is beyond painful. I'm going back to my acupuncturist next week to see what she can do.
If anyone has any ideas for swollen feet I would be so grateful!!
What we're looking forward to: A 3 day weekend full of family and friends ♥
