Bump Watch: Week 23 — ya,yah… I’ve missed a few weeks …she is GROWING FAST NOW!!!

Bambino Bump Watch: Baby Coffman due October 1st

 Week # 23: 17 weeks to go!!!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!

don’t mind the squinty eyes… it was early!

 Gender:  It’s a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We found out a few weeks ago and are so happy and having a BLAST planning for our baby girl, Madison! 

 Food- Feed Me NOW!  Our little miss is growing like a weed and I am starving shortly after every meal.  I am still eating small meals because I get full fast, but the more small meals the better 🙂

Cravings:  Back on the Mexican, full fledge. It is all that ever sounds good…. I am trying to eat really healthy in between the Mexican binges to semi-even it out!

Aversions:  HAM!! GAG!!!!!  Anything spicy (not because of taste, just heart burn) nothing new…

 Sleep: Crazy dream, horrible dreams.  I keep having awful nightmares about people who I’ve never met, but in my dream we are best friends. Weird. I read online that these are common in moms-to-be as we start getting nervous about actually having the baby then gasp…bringing her home!

 Movement: OH YES! This baby is active!  This past week she is really moving, I rarely go a couple hours without a gymnastics session (or at least in my mind she is seeing how many flips she can do in a row!)— Last night I was even able to see her kicking! It is crazy!!

 How’s Mama? : Good.  I am pretty much over any sort of nausea, I still will get dizzy occasionally and I nap pretty much every afternoon for an hour.  But overall, my energy level is WAY up.  I have noticed recently that I have ZERO exercise stamina when it is hot out, so my walks are getting much slower… I think Madison is affecting my ability to take deep breaths!

 Looking ahead:  We are going to Madison … the city 🙂 this weekend and I am looking forward to exploring all around the area, then the next week mom gets to Wisconsin to help us with the nursery then on the 23rd I have my shower!!!! Hosted by my two very lovely friends! We cannot wait! (Me & Maddy that is)

 Our bambino in fruit or veggie terms:  This past week our baby was the size of a spaghetti squash. These are getting less believable since I have an actual idea of how big she is, but it is still fun to look at the comparisons each week!
