Gluten Free Bumpdate - Week 23

How far along? 23 weeks (24 when this posts)
Total weight gain: I did not weigh myself this week.
Maternity clothes? Yes!
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Could be better, but could be worse. My sister handed me down a wedge pillow with back support which has been helpful.
Best moment this week: We got to see Bricklet and my marginal previa is gone! Good work placenta on moving on up - I am much less stressed out now and happy I can continue travelling for now! On the flip side we were also told at this scan he's in the 73rd percentile for weight (estimated weight) which is a bit unnerving.
Miss anything? Sleeping through the night and being able to lie on my back for starters. My normal clothes, dresses in particular.
Movement: Yes, still lots of strong kicks. The funniest was when I was cuddling with my husband this morning and Bricklet started kicking. Our stomachs are against eachothers and my husband could feel the kicks. He was like 'Stop kicking me Bricklet!' Pretty cute.
Food cravings: Still have a crazy sugar tooth. My new office has way too many delicious options, and my husband brought home bag of candy from his work on Halloween. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Happily, my food aversions are almost gone. Sadly, my nausea seems to have been back the last couple of days... hoping it's just acid reflux. Also had two bad tummy days (seperate issues, pregnancy symptom related) which made me feel really ill.
Gender: Still definitely a boy. Fourth ultrasound and ultrasound tech to indicate so anyway :)
Labor signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Still what I think is round ligament pain, a bit of acne (though not massive zits just pimples now hooray), insanely scent sensitive, tummy troubles which I will refrain from going into details on.
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: This week I was between the two, today was a hard one because I'm becoming more uncomfortable in general and looking ahead to a week that is packed with 12-15 hour work days... not sure how I'm going to survive the week but I'm sure I will sort it out!
What are you looking forward to? Holidays in a few weeks! No work. No computer. Just us, a beach, a nice hotel, and some virgin pina coladas! I am immensely looking forward to it.
