22 weeks

How Far Along: 22 Weeks

Size of baby: Our baby girl is nearing the big 1 lb marker & about 11 inches says she is the length of a spaghetti squash.  I had no idea what a spaghetti squash was so I had to look it up... 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 6 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I am still wearing some non-maternity clothes but they arent that comfortable...there are still a few things that fit fine but my work pants are all maternity and I need the belly band for my jeans.

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Its great! It is such a God given gift, especially for this over emotional worried pregnant lady...

Sleep: I have developed some sleeping issues and they are no fun! I have been getting progesterone shots weekly & have wonderful bruises on each hip (that I am very grateful for). I am a side & stomach sleeper and since sleeping on my stomach isnt really working out, each time I turn onto my side I wake up in it makes it interesting....

Symptoms: It seems that if I "overdo" it at all, I start to have contractions. So I have been trying to take it a little more easy!

Cravings: Sweets, chips, beef pickles & raspberry good. 

Best Moment this week: Getting to Friday!  This has been a long & crazy week - I cant wait for the weekend!!   

What I am looking forward to:  We are debating the paint color for her room & hopefully we will start painting this weekend!  I will be sure to take before & after photos if we do!  I have really been working on getting things I know how things can change in an instant and I could be on bedrest.  So I am praying that I can get as much done as I would like prior where I am not "overdoing it" as my doctors refer too...

Have a great weekend friends!  I am resisting the urge to complain about all I will say is I cannot wait for FALL!!!  I love the crisp cool weather where I can have my windows open & it is cold at night.  I cannot wait for FOOTBALL!  I love football & have high hopes that I can go to a few of my brothers football games.  We will see!  Oh but I just cannot wait for the fall!! 

Okay now go enjoy your summer-filled weekend!   :)
