23 weeks!


23 weeks! Aside from the hospital trip on Monday, I've been feeling fine. I think I've gained 8 or 9 pounds so far, and the baby girl's heart rate is always somewhere in the 150's, and she's well over a pound in weight now. Measuring pretty much dead on for dates, which is a first! All the other babies measured big from the beginning of the second trimester.

Have you ever had Planter's Sweet and Crunchy peanuts? I don't even know how to describe them, but they are amazing. I can't believe it's taken me 27 year to find them. They are fabulous. I'm currently eating them pretty much nonstop, which means that soon I'll never be able to eat them again because I'm so burnt out. That's how I tend to roll. Find something I like, and eat it until it makes me want to puke. Fun times.

Anyone have any tips for drinking more water? I can't just drink water nonstop. Can't. And I like Gatorade, the lemon lime flavor, at least, but if I drink to much of it I always get canker sores. I've tried the different mix ins for water bottles, but they never end up tasting right. So I'm always vaguely thirsty but drinking too much plain water can literally make me throw up. I also have something against flavored water. Don't know why. I'm confusing.

Ava and Jace are both thrilled about getting a new baby (in fact, Jace thinks one is not enough), but I have a feeling Seth is going to get a very rude awakening in a few months. He is definitely the king of the hill around here, and he likes it. He thinks he is the funniest, cutest thing ever created, and I think he is going to be mighty annoyed at someone coming along to take the spotlight. We'll see. I'm a little nervous. Let's just cross our fingers that he's walking by January!
