How Far Along: 22 Weeks
Size of the baby: Well this week the "measurement" system changes a bit! It is currently the length of a spaghetti squash (11 inches), and weighing in at a WHOLE pound!
Total Weight Gain/loss: Like normal...I don't weigh between doctor visits because well we don't have a scale. I go to the Dr. this Friday...dun dun dunnn! But pre that I was only 8-9 lbs total! I worry this time I may have added on a lot...I feel "bigger"
Maternity Clothes: Yes, but I am finding them really comfy these days. If only the weather would cool off and stay that way.
Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby R arrives in January!
Movement: Do you know that song from Madagascar....I like to move it.....Well I am pretty sure this child inside me already has the song down. All he/she does is MOVE, MOVE, MOVE! I have noticed that during a tennis match he/she really gets after it....who can blame the poor thing because I am bouncing around so much!
Sleep: Sleeping pretty good these days. However, this week the CrAzY dreams have come back. Boy have there been some interesting ones too.
What I miss: Well just tonight I heard the bar tender open a bottle of champagne! If I were to drink and cost per glass were no issues....that is what I would order all the time! I kind of missed it tonight!
Cravings: Hum, lately I have been enjoying ice cram and chocolate pudding! I know crazy, but its pretty good for a "snack". Again not the healthy choice, but what can you do?
Symptoms: My sweet child prefers to take residency right under my right breast...thus causing me to have pressure there all day! I don't mind he/she hanging out for a moment but a spot a little more centered would be great! I can't imagine that is the most comfortable spot. Maybe it likes to be squished, who knows.
Best moment this week: Of course that will be FRIDAY when we get to hear it's little heart beat. But I guess if I had to pic on this week.....it would be one of my kids at school who said, I love hugging your baby! She is my hugger, little did I know they were not for me but Baby R. Too sweet! I also love that now when they dram an illustration of me....I have a baby bump! How cute is that? One boy offered to give me a "spa" aka a massage too. Love those little guys.
