22 Weeks


(I had already put on pajama pants before I realized I needed to take the picture, and I'm too lazy to change back out.  So excuse the wardrobe.  And I added a couple of sections this week!)

Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, she's the length of a spaghetti squash at 11 inches.  She's almost a pound!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: As far as I can tell, I'm up about 5 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Pants are a must...Bella Band or the rubber band trick is required if I don't wear maternity pants.  Shirts are slowly becoming necessary too.  If they were loose fitting before pregnancy I can probably still get away with them, but a lot aren't fitting!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey...and a few people have asked, yes, we are planning on doing a double name.  I'm not going to be obsessive about it, but we'd like for it to stick.

Belly Button In/Out: Definitely still in, but I'm starting to see some stretching.
Stretch Marks: No stretch marks, but of ALL things I have a tiny vericose vein on my belly!  How weird is that?  I thought it was a bruise for a couple of weeks, but got to looking closely this weekend and realized what it was.  I've never heard of that!

Movement: Yes, bigtime!  She's most active in the evening and at night, but I'll occasionally feel a kick during the day.  And Noah FINALLY got to feel her for the first time Sunday!  It was a cool moment.  Then, a few hours later, I saw my belly move for the first time.  She's really stepped up her game this week! :)

Sleep: Not bad, but the pregnancy pillow is a must.  I roll over on my stomach without it!

What I miss: Nothing!

What I am looking forward to: Working on the nursery and going to our first class this weekend!

Cravings/Aversions: Really back to normal this week.  I haven't been as hungry at night for some reason.  And I get full a lot easier, but also get hungry a lot easier.

Symptoms: Not much of anything.  Round ligament pain if I move funny, a little bit of a waddle starting, but that's about it!  Sometimes all I have to remind me I'm pregnant is the big (and moving) belly!

Best Moment This Week: Noah getting to feel her kick!

Weekly Wisdom: I got nothing this week, honestly.  :)
