Walking in the Lord's Grace day by day....


23 Weeks

How big is baby: 23 Weeks | Grapefruit
How I'm feeling: Great. This last week was super awesome. Primarily cause of Blooma Yoga and Barre. Sunday I started to feel like bronchitis or something that Matt had all week was coming my way, so I rested most of the day and Monday. While shooting Apple Cider Vinegar to keep the crap away. Feeling pretty good today.
Weight gain/loss: 21-22. Feeling pretty good that since I have gotten back from Mexico (week 20) that I have only gained about 3.5-4.5 in 4 weeks. Have my 24 week appt this week so we will see what they say.
Stretch marks: None yet. I asked my Mom today and she said she doesn't think she did. Plus. Yet I have a ton on my back from when I grew super fast in middle school.  So maybe I will get them anyways.
Sleep: Reasonable. I do wake often to reposition or just cause I am awake. Still feel rested most mornings if I get to bed on time (10ish). Had a couple of late nights this week and definitely paid for it.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Fruit. Strawberries and Blueberries. Chocolate definitely also. Made the MOST AMAZING gluten free, low sugar & carb pizza last night. Freaking out about how nummy it was and made my second one today!!! Also made some amazing Paleo Choco Chip muffins last night too!
Movement: Yep! Usually once a day at least varying on time. It's hard not to get worried sometimes if I don't feel him right away in the morning.
What I'm loving: Feeling good in my skin, I think due to Yoga and Barre at Blooma. Also, being grateful that I can take days of rest. I feel like the next 4 months are going to FLY by.
Symptoms: Definitely had some hard right hip pain. I can't sit on the floor anymore during photoshoots without some pain. Need to look into a bolster. Also, this baby seems to like water too much. I took a bath this week for the first time since the water scares at week 20/21 and he just drops super low when I get out and I don't LOVE that feeling at all. I really wanted to be in the water especially towards the end when it gets warm, but we will see. I am going to try to give the gym pool a try in the coming weeks to see if it has the same affect.
What I'm looking forward to: Making more meals this week with Matt and just rocking out the schedule. Also, my assistant returns this week and I have a wedding Saturday so excited about the warmer weather a bit and just shooting a sweet couple. Oh. and more mid day naps.
Best moment of the week: Grateful my mom brought food down on Monday when I was sick that was super nice. Honestly all the nummy recipes we made this week was a highlight!!!
Verse that I am clinging to: Galatians 4:16 But I say, walk by the spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.  Which in my world right now means, That I need to meet Jesus first or my flesh will rule the day. I need to start with a devotion, a note of gratitude, a prayer or quiet time with the Lord. I know my schedule will vary but making HIM first everyday dramatically changes the way my heart acts and feels and handles situations. And I find myself fighting my flesh if I don't start with the spirit RIGHT in the morning. So clinging to this truth this week.
Photo: Wearing the same top I wore at week 13-14 photo for some comparison for me. It's also crazy to me how depending on how I am standing the bump looks bigger, a lot bigger. So I made a comparison shot today of more of a straight up stance, vrs a lean back into one leg stance. It's crazy :). Looks SO different to me ;)
