22 Weeks

How far along: 22 weeks- (just realized the other day that the 2nd trimester ends in just a few weeks. This whole thing is going by crazy fast! 

How big is baby?:
The size of a spaghetti squash. A student told me the other day that my baby is getting fat... pretty sure he meant me since this peanut is still under 1 pound. 

Total weight gain: I gained a little more than a pound this week, bringing me to a grand total of 13 pounds. The pregnancy app I used to track my weight gain tells me that number is excessive. However, my doctor, pregnancy books, and other apps all tell me that 10-15 pounds at this points is healthy so I'm choosing to ignore the advice to "slow down". Meh, I workout several times a week, eat reasonably healthy and feel pretty good about where I'm at. 

Maternity clothes:
 Bought a cute dress the other day that's not maternity, but has plenty of room for the growing bump. I'm hoping this nice weather continues so I can start breaking out some of my dresses and skirts that have plenty of bump room. I like my maternity and yoga pants, but I would like a little more variety in my wardrobe without having to fork over the cash

Best moment of the week:
 Just feeling good this week. Not too tired, not too big, still enjoying the excitement of knowing it's a little girl and being able to refer to her as "her" and not "it" anymore. 

Food cravings: Had a major craving for Cinnamon Toast Crunch the other day. So yummy. I still look forward to my Cheerios everyday. We got our Girl Scout cookies delivered the other day, so of course I woke up this morning craving my peanut butter patties... and may have devoured like 6 of them before heading to Zumba this morning.  

Food aversions: Meh, nothing really. Food and I are friends... maybe too good of friends. 

Symptoms: Hungry all the time. I'm starting to get a little more back pain. I find that I get tired really easily these days which isn't helped by my tossing and turning, wake up every 30 minutes sleep habits! 

Movement: Loving the feeling of her little feet tap dancing in there. She's pretty active, but it kind of stresses me out some days when I realize it's 3pm and I haven't felt her move. I know though that she is still moving in there, but I'm just not noticing or feeling her because I'm so busy and moving around so much. Usually once I sit down and put my feet up she starts grooving again. I also realized that a lot of little movements that I've been attributing to stomach grumbles are actually probably her, so she's moving more than I was giving her credit for.  

Gender: Sweet little baby girl! We registered at Babies R Us on Sunday and it was so much fun to pick out all kinds of girly and pink things! 

What I'm looking forward to: Still can't wait to name this princess... however, it looks like it's gonna be awhile since Drew and I can't seem to agree on a name. I can't wait for her crib to arrive. We bought it last Sunday and it said 7-14 days until we get it. Granted, we have no place to put it yet as we haven't cleaned out her future room... I just want to have it and feel like we're getting somewhere. 

What I miss: My clothes!!! So many things don't fit, so I miss being able to pull things from my closet and know they will fit. 

Next appointment: March 28th.
