Baby Andrews has a name..

Baby Andrews has a name.....

Brantley Cleve
 
We really decided his name pretty early on, but getting Ike to commit was another thing.  Ike is a third, and he had already decided that he wanted to do something different.  He says it can be complicated sharing a name.  Ike's name is actually Ira Cleve.  He is the 4th generation to use Cleve, and we thought it would be really special to at least carry that on.  So we just had to find something we liked to go with it.  Ike actually came up with Brantley and I loved it.  I think we will call him Brant, but we will see.  I am excited that we finally have a name!  


21 weeks
 

I'm 22 Weeks, Sam says he is 25 weeks after thanksgiving lunch.
 I am currently 23 weeks but I don't have a picture to prove it, but here is a little catch up on our progress...
 
How far along: 23 weeks
How big is baby: should be just over a pound now and the size of a grapefruit
Weight gain/loss: about 12 pounds
Maternity Clothes: YES!
Stretch marks:no
Sleep: OK.  My hips have starting hurting some at night, but nothing too bad.
Diet:  ANYTHING!  Not craving anything and no aversions either.  Just hungry!
Gender: Boy!
Movement: YES!  Brantley is moving a good bit now. 
The belly: BIG! 
What I miss: Diet coke.
Symptoms: Heartburn/indigestion.  I had indigestion (I'm sure from WAY over eating) so bad over thanksgiving.  I threw up all night.
What I'm looking forward to:  Finishing the nursery, and most of all Holding our baby!
Best moment of the week: Ike felt Brantley really moving this week.  It is such an amazing thing for us to be able to feel him.
