22 Weeks and Change

That’s Change= A couple extra days, and Change= Man, my belly is HUGE!

Hey Everyone!

We’ve been busy working on the house (new post to follow), tromping around in the snow and ice, attending the Pond Hockey Tournament, watching our new football team lose, and working.

It’s been 2 weeks since we found out that our little baby is indeed a Cornelius Maximus. We’re still totally excited, and I love being able to call him “he” without silently apologizing to the potential girl in there. Did that make sense?

Little guy is kicking and rolling up a storm in there- Luke feels him regularly now. I was lying in bed a week ago, enjoying my personal dance performance, when it occurred to me that he was probably moving enough to see from the outside. Sure enough, the kicks and rolls are clearly visible! I can’t believe I didn’t try sooner! And just in time for our visit to AZ. =)

The pic this week is a little startling to me. I looked the same and went 3 weeks without gaining a pound, and then gained about 3 pounds and as many inches in a week. Whew! I’ve been sleeping a ton, so it’s not a surprise that a growth spurt was on the horizon. I noticed last week while watching little Neiman Leroy move, that I can no longer see the underside of my belly. And that my belly has an underside. =/

Maybe if I stick my belly out, no one will notice my hair... 😉

How far along? 22 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +12.4lbs
Stretch marks? Not so far.
Sleep: Sleeping great!
Best moment this week: Watching him from the outside. =)
Miss Anything? Nope. Not this week.
Movement: Yes!! I spend evenings watching my belly pop and roll around.
Food cravings: I’ve been eating a ton of cottage cheese with pineapple or peaches.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, but the heartburn is here. =(
Gender: It’s been made official, We’re having a BOY!! You know, in case you haven’t heard. =)
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On almost exclusively. The day after Chinese food is another story.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Eh. Moody. It’s been kind of a rough hormone week, but I can feel it lifting. =)
Looking forward to: Visiting family in AZ this weekend! Can’t wait!
