How far along: 22 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 16 lbs
Maternity clothes: My mom made me some belly bands which I started wearing this weekend. I love that I can wear my normal bottoms again.
Stretch marks: Same but the ones on my stomach are now tanned
Sleep: I slept horribly at the beach but at home I am much better. It all depends on my level of tired
Best moment this week: Pumpkin seemed to really like the beach and floating in the water. That and running away from his aunt Lindsey when she tried to feel him move.
Movement: It is mostly at night time that he is super active but he moves during the day.
Food cravings: I love fresh fruits and anything with citrus
Food aversions: I started to think back on some of the acidic things that bothered me in my 1st trimester and they make me gag…still.
Gender: Still a boy
Labor Signs: I need these to stay far away for another 16 weeks.
Belly Button in or out? It is still far in there but it is definitely firming up. It has created a flat spot on my bump that looks weird in some clothes.
What I miss: Sleeping comfortably and not grunting every time I have sit up, or walk.
What I am looking forward to: I have a huge to- do list and I am looking forward to getting things crossed off, specifically working on the nursery and starting our registry.
Weekly Wisdom: A friend of mine assured me that I am ahead of the curve that most first time moms are, and that made my anxious mind feel much better.
Milestones: Pumpkin should be a whole pound now. I find that exciting!
