22 weeks

i posted on time this week. yay me. i am officially 22 weeks or 5 1/2 months. woo hooo. i think ive also been nesting lol, ive had the urge to clean and purge and occasionally bake/cook extravagant things.

baby app says: that she is starting to look like a mini newborn now. her lips, eyelids and eyebrows are becoming more distinct and tiny tooth buds are developing in her gums. her eyes have formed but the irises still lack color and she is roughly 11 inches and almost a pound, i personally think she’s bigger. if we could see her now we’d see the fine hair that covers her body and deep wrinkles which will be filled in before she’s born by fat. in her belly her pancreas is forming 🙂

How Far Along? 22 weeks

how big is baby: approx 11 inches, almost a lb and they say shes the length of a spaghetti squash

Symptoms: some fatigue, hunger,back pain, growing pains, leg pains during the night, forgetfulness. {same as ive had really}

Total Weight Gain/Loss: i’ve decided im going to just put my weight up lol. its so much easier to keep track that way. so i went to the doctor yesterday and he told me im 146.6.

the last time i was there (maybe 3 weeks ago i was 141) since i dont remember- we’re going to say my pre pregnancy weight was between 135-140 but i lost weight in the first trimester…

maternity clothes? yes i now own two pairs of maternity pants !

Sleep: i don’t sleep in like i used to. and i wake up in the middle of the night to turn or try and adjust my position.

stretch marks? nothing new or different

Food Cravings: pringles – the original kind, the purple bag of skittles and sour gummy worms.

Best Moment This Week: my weekend

Movement: yes. lol the doctor was listening for her heartbeat on my right side and after talking to me for a second he had to look for her heartbeat on my left side like she did a little flip in that short time!

Labor Signs: no

Gender: its a girl

Belly Button In Or Out? innie like always but ive been noticing for the past couple of weeks that i can see more of my belly button than ive ever been able to see. i guess its starting to pop out

What I Miss: sleeping like before, not having to watch what i eat {ie sushi, deli meat, etc}

What I Am Looking Forward To: planning for the shower, looking for our new place and getting ready for graduation

Milestones: not being able to fit 98 % of my pants

Weekly Wisdom: take naps during the day. it helps.

again, please excuse the public restroom pic i didn’t have anyone to take a pic for me lol.

    Lovely news. By the way, been meaning to ask, I must be old
    fashioned, what does lol mean? I see it all over the place.
    Try to keep off Pringles (too much salt, artificial stuff), and sweets. Eat lots of fruit and veggies. Drink V-8 so good.
