week 22


How far along? 22 weeks

Maternity clothes? yes

Sleep: pretty good

Best moment this week: feeling bigger movements - i can definitely tell he's growing by the pokes and kicks i'm getting!

Miss anything? a bloody mary (and yes, still runny eggs)

Movement: every day!

Food cravings: i could still always go for pizza. and mac and cheese. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: same as usual, just smells sometimes 

Gender: BOY!

Labor signs: it's too early for this question.

Symptoms: a growing belly and a wiggly baby

Belly button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: depends on who you ask ;) 

Blood sugar: been pretty good, had a few highs that i tried to not torture myself over but they didn't last long. dr awesome might make a couple changes in the next few days.

Looking forward to: i mean, obviously looking forward to him getting bigger, finishing his room, his birth, etc ... but currently i'm looking forward to fall. no more 90+ heat and 100% humidity days. to all women due around this time of year, bless you. it's miserable and i'm not close to my due date yet.

Miss anything? a bloody mary.

Food cravings: mmm, pizza still sounds good. or toddler-like foods ... chicken nuggets, mac and cheese.

Blood sugar: they've been pretty good this week! less stress means more leveled out numbers, and that has happened, thank goodness!

Looking forward to: everything! finishing the nursery, feeling him move, watching my bump take on different shapes when he moves, when he's born... the list goes on and on.

20 weeks


How far along? 20 weeks (holy cow, already?!)

Maternity clothes? yes

Stretch marks? no

Sleep: pretty decent, can't complain

Best moment this week: the anatomy ultrasound! we saw him wiggle around and got a 3D picture of his sweet face :) 

Miss anything? not majorly right now

Movement: oh yes. and sometimes we can feel him from the outside! daddy finally felt it last night :)

Food cravings: i've considered pizza for every meal lately. that may or may not be a happy coincidence with his size this week ;) 

Anything making you queasy or sick: same as usual, just smells sometimes (someone wearing too much perfume/scented lotion, exhaust fumes)

Gender: BOY!

Labor signs: it's too early for this question.

Symptoms: the belly is continuing to grow! the leg cramps weren't as frequent this week, fingers crossed the bananas and tons of extra water i'm consuming keeps helping!

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: depends on who you ask ;) 

Blood sugar: doing pretty well. had an appointment with dr. awesome on friday and he said i am doing a great job - which is nice to hear when sometimes it feels like my body is out of control! 

Looking forward to: getting his room ready - we ordered his crib and it'll be here this week!
