Tuk Tuk Thursday – 23 Weeks



  • How Big Is Baby: A grapefruit, at about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces, baby’s not just getting bigger, he/she’s getting even cuter. Tuk Tuk’s face is fully formed now – he/she just needs a little extra fat to fill it out. He/She’s listening to my voice and my heartbeat — and even to loud sounds like cars honking and dogs barking (cats meowing?).

  • Sleep: Well since our heat is now on (read: the apartment is a sauna), I’ve been more uncomfortable AND HOT, but otherwise still so tired at the end of the day that sleep is delicious.

  • Diet/Cravings/Aversions: If I ate as much candy as I craved, I’d be the size of a moose.

  • Exercise: Walked somewhere around 7 miles on Sunday and although I have never been more tired, it felt great to do it (it was gorgeous outside)!

  • Movement: A ton.  Even some movement can be seen from the outside if you stare long-enough, which I am clearly doing.  Love our strong baby!!

  • The Belly: Almost big enough to make people get out of their seats on the subway Winking smile

  • What I’m Loving: Um, everything? Yes, indeedy.

  • Worries: Apartment…. STILL. Proposed move-in, Dec. 1 – cross all fingers and toes, please!

  • Other Symptoms: Hair and nails are growing like weeds!

  • What I’m Looking Forward to: My first baby shower hosted by mom, Melissa, Carol, and Lisa…. and Turkey Day!

  • Best Moment of the Week: Spending the entire day outside on Sunday with the hub – felt like spring!



Bump Progression…
