23 weeks

About time for a pregnancy update. I’m about 23 weeks along. Bump is definitely getting more pronounced and really feeling the stretch.

At 23 weeks baby is about 30cm long (head to toe) and weighs about 500g. Here’s a recent scan from a couple weeks back. Proof of baby’s blue status indicated by the arrow (courtesy of the ultrasound technician).

  3. hey you, just a follow up on Min's comment...
    hi Min! =)
    just an FYI if it would help... i oiled and oiled and oiled when pregnant with emeth. no stretch mark at all -- until the last three weeks or so. i'll spare you the details.
    heard from reliable sources(and am since convinced) that it's genetics. :] either you get it or you don't.
    i've made peace with my belly, my marks of honor. =)

  4. Marks of Honour!!! Love the concept.

    No stretch marks yet, but will mentally prepare myself if needed. Thanks for the heads up.

    I'm using baby oil which I apply everyday religiously... not sure if it helps with stretchmarks but it at least helps a little with the itching and 'tight feeling'

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
