Size of baby: An ear of corn! He is getting to be so big! Over 1 1/4 pound he weighs in my womb...
Symptoms: Exhaustion and hip-flexer pain. Hmm... the exhaustion hits me at night. I can go-go-go all day long and then I just feel like I hit a wall and get so tired out. I am trying to rest so I can "last" all day but that can be a challenge for my personality. I also have been getting some hip flexer pain as my pelvis is twisting and turning. Thank you chiropractor for helping me! :) I really like my chiro... she is awesome!
Cravings: Still just really hungry! Lately I have wanted Raspberry Chocolate ice-cream. Yum!
Something you Miss: Being able to get up and down easily :) It's quite a sight....
Jude @ 23 Weeks!
Milestones: I can now see baby Jude's kicks on the OUTSIDE of my tummy. It is the craziest thing. Just this morning I was laying in bed and tried to videotape it but the light was off. I love that he moves so much!! He seriously flips around at least 20 times a day!
Prayer for our baby this week:
Dear Lord, This week baby Jude is able to swallow! What an amazing function that is so necessary to our health. I think about this too in the way that we can speak truth and swallow lies. I pray that as Jude's mom I can speak words that are encouraging to my son. I pray that he would seek truth and know the difference between the lies of the enemy. You have a great plan for our child and I praise you for intrusting us with his life. As we continue to prepare for this great joy, I pray against any other sickness or issues with my pregnancy. I know you are in control and ask for you to please continue to keep us healthy and whole. We love you Lord. Amen.
