How far along: 22 weeks
Size of baby: Baby's now the size of a papaya! 10.5 to 11.8 inches and 12.7 to 20.8 oz. Baby is settling into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day.
Weight Gain/Loss: I have been trying not to look at the scale. If you haven't read it yet, check out Elphaba's most recent post, I couldn't have said it better myself!
Maternity clothes: All maternity pants, almost all maternity shirts.
Sleep: Lack of sleep would be the better term. Crazy dreams, waking up to pee, having a hard time rolling over, the list goes on.
Best moment of the week: Let's see...painting baby girl's room, getting her crib and bedding (thank you Grandma & Grandpa G!), and hitting 22 weeks :)
Movement: I love the movement so much! There are certain times of the day that she is so active, it always puts a smile on my face. Steve still sits with his hand on my belly every night to feel her move.
Symptoms: I haven't been too swollen this week but my tail bone is still very painful.
Food cravings/aversions: I've been craving sweets this week, my favorite is black cherry ice cream from the local ice cream shop- thanks to my friend Brad for introducing me to this amazing treat.
Gender: Girl ♥
Belly button in or out: Still in but very, very shallow.
Stretch marks: Nothing new
What I miss: Nothing, I am so happy and excited! (I do wish it wasn't so painful to sit though)
What I am looking forward to: Seeing our family and friends in PA, our first baby shower while we are there and meeting my wonderful blogger buddy at Journey Through IF :)
Weekly wisdom: I'm not sure if this is "wisdom" or not but I've been taking a deep water exercise class at work and it has been fantastic! I feel so much better, have more energy, and I think it has been helping with the swelling.
