Mommy Monday {23 Weeks}

I'm getting to this post a little late, but it is still going up on Monday so I'll chalk that up as a win!

We've been so busy dealing with house stuff that I just have not found ANY down time. Today was designing our closet and pantry shelving. I'm excited, but man I can't wait for this process to be over!

How far along?  23 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I made the mistake of weighing myself last week at my parents house and blah. It seems I'm up at least 15 lbs. I really don't know what my starting weight was, but I have an appointment on Wednesday so we shall see what the official weight gain is!
Maternity clothes: Officially in Maternity pants FULL time and loving every minute of it. I'm limited by how many I have, but they are in rotation with my leggings and I'm making do. 
Stretch marks: None to report and hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee. I will probably add The Honest Co. Belly Balm soon!
Sleep: Daylight Savings time is really affecting me. We never had to worry about this when we lived in AZ so it's been an adjustment.   
Exercise: Beachbody On Demand is still my go to workout. I worked out both days this weekend despite my crappy mood and not wanting to do anything. 
Best moment this week: Meeting with our builder and feeling much better about the timeline of the house being done. 
Miss anything? Back about a week ago when I wasn't such a crabby, crazy B. 
Movement:  She has been much more active this week. I've been doing kick counts and she is right on. Much less stress this week because she's been bouncing around all the time.   
Food cravings: I've been on a huge peanut butter and jelly sandwich kick lately. With Lennon I couldn't stand peanut butter and with this one I can't get enough. It's amazing how different each pregnancy is!   
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still no bell peppers. Keep them far away from. 
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: No and let's keep it that way!
Belly button in or out? In, but sneaking it's way out. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I have been so moody lately! I had such a terrible weekend that I actually looked up if Pre-Partum Depression was a thing and sure enough it is! I, by no means, feel like I have this, but I was just in a funk yesterday. 
Looking forward to:  My Aunt coming on Friday! She's only met Lennon once so I'm excited to be able to spend some time with her next week! 

And here are some more pictures because it was nice out!

Until next time!
