22 Weeks

I'm 22 weeks pregnant!


Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of a spaghetti squash and weighs a pound!
Total Weight Gain: Gained 14 lbs! Whoa!

Belly Growth: 9 3/4 inches.  After catching a glimpse of my belly one morning this week, he said, whoa, you are really pregnant now, your tummy sticks out farther than your boobs!  haha, thanks babe!

Maternity Clothes: Oh yes.  The Belly Band is over.  I can fit in full fledged maternity pants now, and let me tell you - elastic waistbands are SO COMFORTABLE.  I mean, really comfortable!   

Gender: It's a BOY!  Now we just have to agree on a name....
Movement: Oh yes, and it is the most amazing feeling ever!  I love feeling him wiggling around in there!  I'm hoping hubby will be able to feel him from the outside of my belly soon!
Sleep: I can't sleep more than 8 hours.  My body just won't let me.  But, I'm sleeping through the night, which is wonderful.
Symptoms: I've felt great this week, just big and a little sore.  I think it's from all this growing! 

What I Miss: Coffee.  I really wanted a Starbucks this week!
Cravings: I've been loving Cherry candy canes - Yummy!

Emotions: I had a slight crazy episode this week, and got really upset at hubby for something so silly.  I realized I was being ridiculous when he said, "I don't know what you want me to do", and I realized that I didn't know either.  Poor guy.  Then I felt so awful, that I started crying and cried the rest of the evening - I just couldn't stop.  Crazy, crazy.  But, other than that, I've been very happy.  And Hubby was quick to forgive me for being a crazy preggo lady :)

Best Moment of the Week: We got our crib in the mail!  We are going to wait until the room is cleaned out and painted to open it, but I'm just so happy that it's here!
