How far along: 22 Weeks.
How big is baby: About the size of a Barbie doll.
Total weight gain: Exactly 20lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Yes!
Sleep: Sleep has been good.
Best moment of the week: My brother coming to visit us, the reactions of Jennifer, Rachel and Mom to the gender reveal gifts and Bobby being off work for about a week. Also, going to the baby store with Bobby and spending two hours looking at everything and learning about strollers and car seats. It was so fulfilling to go with him and him be interested, ask questions and really be excited with me. I’m so lucky. Most men aren’t. It was a really great day. We had so much fun together. We even bought a bunch of clothes for her from Carters website (thanks to Jennifer for telling us about this amazing sale). We got some pretty cute stuff. I can’t wait for it to come so I can just daydream about her some more.
Food Cravings: I’m completely back to normal besides still wanting soda here and there. Not craving anything in particular.
Food Aversions: Nothing.
Symptoms: I still have this annoying rash. I thought it was from laundry soap but I’ve discovered it was heat rash (thanks to What to Expect emails). Makes sense now.
Mood: So happy, excited, thankful and loving my brother here.
Movement: I’m feeling big kicks now. She’s sleeping most of the day, but when I wake up in the morning to pee, she gets up too and really wants to stay up. I really don’t even need an alarm clock anymore. I get up at 2:30, 5:30 and finally 7:30 on my days off.
What I’m looking forward to: Going to a 3D/4D ultrasound to see our little Angel. She’s growing so fast. Also looking forward to planning and doing her bedroom. And my trip home to Michigan very soon.
What I miss: Nothing really. I’m loving being pregnant.
