Bump Update: Week 23 Again

Well, here we are, one week further along and two weeks back in name. I'm very anxious for week 25 to roll around so we can start on weeks I haven't celebrated yet.

This week has been a good one, the same old exhaustion & indigestion song and dance but feeling good all around.
Now that my due date has moved I can't help but think I'm huge for 23 weeks! 
I'm measuring slightly big but that's probably due to the fact that I have a short torso.

I found a new girl's name that I thought was sweet this week. Friends of our family suggested Cygnet, which is the name for a baby swan, and I thought it was darling. As it goes Jus wasn't a fan so we're back where we started. We've decided to wait until we meet the baby to decide on a name, right now we're just going around in circles and once we meet our darling we'll be able to decide.

Other than our midwife changing our due date my monthly appointment went well. I only gained 3 pounds this month which was good because I was up 6 last month! At our next appointment I'll get my glucose test done and then we'll start seeing our midwives every other week!

I can't believe how fast time is flying!

You look so beautiful! I totally get the due date frustrations. The midwives changed my due date and bumped it up, which I loved, but then baby boy still didn't come until my original date. :)

Good luck with the name game! I'm sure once you meet your precious baby, you'll be able to see which one is best.

Good luck with names... I'm obsessed so I think when it comes to names it'll take me forever to choose!

I totally understand your discouragement, but you look adorable! I always felt bigger than others [it's impossible not to compare yourself to every.other.pregnant.woman!] but everyone [pops] at different times in their pregnancy.

As for names...GOOD LUCK! WORST.THING.ABOUT.PREGNANCY!!! I HATED this part. We didn't decide on Jordyn's name until 2 days before! So hard!

You look great! I'm sure it's hard to have your due date pushed back but hey, if your LO decides to come anytime before your new due date, think of how excited you will be!!!

Oh Nicole! I have totally been out of the blogging loop! Didn't even know you were pregnant! Your looking great though, adn if your feeling good too thats awesome! Pity they moved you due date but you can be excited for an extra 2 weeks and have more time to think of a name. Sadly I'm with Jus on Cygnet. We're not having a baby any time soon but we like Darcey, Daisy, Skylar and Trinity if that helps

You are such a beautiful mother to be and I'm so happy for you all! Sorry about some of the most recent news - the good news is that little L is in safe hands and is growing strong and healthy. <3 you

I love that you're waiting to met the little one–I've always wondered if a child becomes who they are as a result of their name, or if they were just a perfect match!

You look so beautiful! What they say about pregnant women looking radiant is so true. Hope you continue to spoil yourself and get some sleep! Let me know if you ever want to do that photo session. :)

you look great! and glowing. :)

are you and jus waiting to be "surprised" at the baby's gender until birth? my husband really wants to do that (not currently pregnant, but in the future!) and the ocd planner in me goes crazy wondering how you plan the nursery, how you plan baby showers, how you register... any thoughts or ideas on this? i would love to be able to do that for him and i think it would be a neat idea overall. his words: "there just aren't many surprises left in life."
