Pregnancy Update: 22 Weeks

How far along? 22 Weeks

Total weight gain: 4 lbs.

Maternity clothes: I have a few, but not too many. Not showing that much still.

Stretch marks: Nope

Sleep: This past week it has really became uncomfortable to sleep on my tummy. So I have been alternating sides and incorporated my body pillow.

Best moment of this week: to really feel her!! she is very active in there and it is not just flutters I feel anymore. I can feel her move around. It is so cool. I just lay there and feel her move and it just makes me smile.

Miss anything: I miss not being able to drink wine or beer. Our KC sports team are killing it right now. Royals are in post season and just swept the Angels, Chiefs are doing great under Andy Reid’s leadership, and Mizzou is climbing the ranks in the SEC. It has been hard for me not to be able to drink. I also have really started to cramp recently. That hurts.

Movement: A lot of movement this past week. She is super active in there. Very active in the morning, after I eat, and at night.

Food cravings: Sour candy…All day, every day.

Anything making you queasy or sick: strong perfume and I am hyper-sensitive to cigarette smoke! Yuck!

Have you started to show yet: I have. However, people still cannot tell, so not that much.

Gender: IT’S A GIRL!!

Labor signs: Just lots of cramps yesterday, but nothing too crazy. Apparently that is just her growing.

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy 🙂 Slight anxiety and stress at times for the anticipation.

Looking forward to: decorating her nursery and eventually having a baby shower!
