Sweet Baby 23 Weeks

Posted by Courtney Lopez on

Sweet Baby now weighs as much as a large Mango!
This week I went over to Buy Buy Baby and started my registry.  Wow!  There’s so much stuff in that place, although I may register at another place for little things.  I think Buy Buy Baby is perfect for the big stuff.  One thing I still haven’t found is a crib that I really love.   I am definitely Inspired by Inspired Nursery with their Mood Board Monday posts.  It’s a little hard to judge the room we’ll have when baby comes as we hope to move into a bigger place when our lease is up.  Which just so happens to be a week after my due date.  That will make for an interesting transition, new place and a little one  She’s getting more active and sometimes even responds to mommy and daddy’s voice.  Ah, cannot wait to meet our sweet baby!
Pregnancy, 23 weeks

About our baby:  Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she’s more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound about as much as a large mango, you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby’s increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze her when she hears them outside the womb.    (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
