22 Weeks

 
 


How far along: 22 weeks
Size of Baby P: 10.94 inches, 15.17 ounces (according to Pregnancy App)
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Eggplant (for weeks 22-24)
Gender: Boy
Showing: Yes!
Maternity clothes:  Yes, majority
Unglamorous body changes:  Just getting bigger...in all areas, not just the belly!
Sleep: Great
Movement:  Jack's kicks are starting to get stronger.  Based on our ultrasounds, he is a very active boy
Food cravings:  No particular cravings this week
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood:  Very Moody...I cried in the grocery store parking lot last Sunday because I wanted to see a movie that night, but there was no good times, I'm very short with people, and had a case of the Sunday Night Blues bad.  Maybe this has less to do with hormones and more to do with the end of holiday and short work week season. 
Best moment this week:  3D/4D Ultrasound.  It was amazing! 
Strange experiences:  A few people have told me to tell Jason "good job" after learning we are having a boy.  As if he worked hard for that outcome...they were all men.  Go figure. 
Milestones:    Baby's movements are deliberate now and with the purpose of preparing baby's motor skills and coordination. 
Looking forward to:  Starting a prenatal yoga class series this week!  Jack and I are going to get our yoga on. 
Thoughts:   People are constantly asking me how I'm feeling and how my pregnancy has been.  All in all I would classify it as great.  I never had a major bout of morning sickness and now I have most of my energy back.  I'm starting to feel back pain towards the end of the day, especially a work day, but nothing too bad.  I was also having some major pain near my ribs, but I think I have that worked out as I switched to a larger bra without an underwire (TMI, sorry), but really if you are pregnant, make sure you have a proper fitting bra!  No matter what happens or how I feel, it's all worth it Baby Jack! 

Our nursery is also taking shape this week.  The majority of the furniture is in and put together.  I'm trying to hold off on starting to "Dreft" what we already have!  My mom called me a "super-nester" the other day.  It's true.  On Friday, I was whining to Jason because I desperately wanted to purchase a crib mattress after work, but he needed to work late.  He asked me why it was so urgent and I said well, if we don't do it tonight when are we going to get it done (thinking we had a very busy weekend).  Pause and then Jason said, anytime between now and MAY.  Guess I was being a little silly. 

But don't worry...a crib mattress was purchased this weekend.  Super nester!
