22 Weeks

Blurry self-portrait time again!

I found this top at Forever21 and I'm obsessed. I just went up a size to accommodate the bump + it's plenty long enough for maternity wear. Best $20 spent so far!

Size: A papaya. The average fetus measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches & weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces right now. Woo hoo!

Major happenings this week: I experienced my first episode with round ligament pain. Wowzers. Luckily, Jamie called me right as it was happening & calmed me down.

I've also been experiencing a lot of back pain, which I've read is normal.

I ordered On Becoming Baby Wise on Cyber Monday. I'm looking forward to reading it. Everyone I know who's followed their suggestions has had a baby who slept through the night very early. I'm willing to read every book in the universe to make this happen!

Sleep: I've been having some crazy nightmares & heartburn this week. I hope the heartburn means she's growing lots of hair... not sure what the nightmares mean.

Miss Anything: Pretty much anything I can't have - sushi, a cold turkey sandwich (not sliced in front of me), wine, etc.
I'm also missing the desire to work out. I can tell a huge change in my body (aside from the belly), and I'd love to regain the want to do something about it.

Food Cravings: Nothing new - still Italian & Burger King chicken sandwiches.

Bellybutton in or out? Outtie.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Gender: Baby girl :)
What's been happening: We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of family. My mom & I were able to knock out a good bit of nursery stuff last Saturday before the big let down game. I'm anxious to get started on that and hopefully have it finished by week 32.

Looking forward to: Spending a weekend at home with my husband. After traveling all over the state for Thanksgiving it will be nice to have nothing to do for a couple of days. The town parade is on Saturday, so we'll probably head out there & maybe to the zoo to see the lights. I love Christmas time!

On a side note - I'm not sure why my blog is so wonky. I'm working on getting that fixed!
