23 Weeks

I went to my appointment yesterday and heard James' heartbeat. He's doing just fine, growing as he should. Unfortunately, I've gained about 10  more pounds in the past five weeks, so I'm on a "diet". I'm so aggravated that they keep changing things back and forth. My weight is fluctuating to the extremes and I don't know why, they don't know why, and I'm crumbling. My fingers are fat, my ankles are fat, and my face is fat. Fat, fat, fat. They keep telling me everything is normal. No high blood pressure, no diabetes, or anything along those lines. Just "weight gain". It's so confusing.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How far along: 23 weeks.
Size of baby: A papaya!
Total weight gain/loss: 20-25 pounds. Ugh.
Maternity clothes: My overalls and pajama pants.
Gender: Still a boy.
Movement: Very much lately. He even gets hiccups.
Sleep: This week, I've slept really well.
What I miss: Nothing still.
Cravings: Bean burritos from Taco Bell still. No onions.
Symptoms: Having to pee all the time.
Best moment this week: Eating a bean burrito and feeling full.
