How far along: 22 weeks! 18 weeks to go! Time is starting to go by much faster now.
Baby is the size of a: Papaya/Corn on the cob/1 lb. bag of sugar (these analogies kill me, I don't like the fruit ones at all!)
Sleep: I'm still sleeping pretty great. Not tired all day anymore, but definitely ready for bed when it's bed time. I have to get up to pee between 3-4am, and sometimes I struggle with going back to sleep then.
Total Weight Gain: 7 lbs right now total. 3 lbs since my 20 week doc visit on 7/15, which is hard to swallow.
Stretch Marks: None yet. I am slathering myself in all the lotions I can possibly find day and night because this child is soaking up ALLLLL my moisture.
Innie or Outie: Innie still. Although I do think it's gotten wider?
Symptoms: Out of breath constantly. It's like 100% humidity in East TN these days, so that's not helping me breathe any easier. Tiny tinges of heartburn in the afternoon lately, but I think that's more diet related.
Movement: Pretty consistent. He's a morning mover, so maybe he will be a morning person, like his mama! He loves to move around during that 3a-6a time frame when I get up to use the bathroom and wake up for work. Also, consistent movement when I'm really hungry (HELLO MOM FEEEEEED ME!).
Miss anything?: Alcohol (judge me, I don't care). I miss it!
Maternity Clothes: None yet. But buying some soon because my pants are getting tighter.
Go-to eats: This past week I wanted to eat ALL THE THINGS! McDonald's French fries, salty chips, ice cream and frozen cokes (all junk) have been recent cravings. I'm just feeling hungry in general! Trying to eat healthier meals with a little junk snack if that's what I'm craving.
Best moment of the week: Having my husband take my toenail polish off because it's too annoying to smush my stomach and lean over to do it myself.
Gender: BOY!!!!! Confirmed twice by ultrasound now. No denying that he's a boy!
What I’m looking forward to: Seeing his room come together. The huge shipment from Carter's that I ordered this week to arrive. Seeing him again at my 24 week visit in August.
Milestones: We registered last night! It's very overwhelming to register for your first baby. Too many options of everything. But it was exciting too! The more stuff we buy for him, the more real it becomes.
In typical slacker fashion, I haven't taken a 22 week picture yet... Will add that later to this post or post on Instagram this weekend.
