This week, Baby is the size of a: Spaghetti Squash (they come up with the weirdest comparisons)
How far along? 22 weeks
Due date: February 4th, 2013
Total weight gain/loss: 20 lbs – more than I should at this point. Not happy about it!
Maternity clothes? Rocking several pair of maternity jeans, but no tops yet… just “larger” size normal shirts
Sleep: Still sleeping fine, up a lot to pee though! Can’t this girl let me pee when I’m up during the day?!
Best moment this week: This is my 3rd day of not taking my afternoon Zofran pill!! I’ve been more nauseous than normal in the morning but able to skip the afternoon pill – I’ll take it.
Movement: Yup! She’s still pretty gentle, but can feel her kickin about in there.
Food cravings: Just was craving KFC Potato Bowl last night – caved to the craving
Symptoms Still the nausea, also dealing with the horrible weight gain, the terrible acne, emotional rollercoaster (cry baby in the house) and the lovely gas (this baby girl fills me up w/ air!)
Gender: We’re having a baby girl!!! We found out three weeks ago, it’s been a blast buying all the sweet adorable outfits!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? Inny still
Feeling toward Pregnancy: Now that I am feeling better, at least better than I was a month ago I’m a little more upbeat. Still not looking forward to the next 18 weeks though… I’m forever a debby downer about pregnancy haha
What I miss: My old clothes skinny girl clothes hahaha
What I am looking forward to: Getting the nursery all put together – it’s gonna take me the next 4 months!
Milestones: Week 20 we followed up our gender reveal appt with a 3D/4D ultrasound – that experience was amazing. It was really cool being able to see Baby Girl like that.. there was even about 10 seconds after pushing on my belly and her bouncing around it literally looked like she was giggling – was hysterical. Oh! And just bought the crib Monday this week! That was exciting!
I am starting to get my designs aligned for the nursery but I feel like I cannot make a final decision about anything for the room! I want her to have the most perfect room and nervous once I “choose” something it won’t be right!… Ohhh the joys of decorating
