Baby Lesh: 22 Weeks

{this pic was taken a few days ago... we're already bigger!}

How i'm feeling: I've been feeling great... energetic & excited.

How far along: 22 weeks

Size of the baby: About the size of a spaghetti squash (11 inches and almost a pound)

Total Weight Gain/loss: About 5 or 6 pounds

Maternity Clothes:  I switch off between my regular and maternity jeans.  Most of my regular shirts are looser fitting, so they're just fitting tighter these days.

Gender: a GIRL!

Movement: yes... tons of it.  She's very active, especially during the day.  TL felt her move for the first time a little over a week ago and it was incredible!

Sleep: It's hit or miss.  I usually wake up 3-4 times a night, but I don't mind.

What I miss: Taking hot baths, sushi, red wine and guinness... but all worth it.

Cravings: still no big cravings.  But fruit always sounds good!

Symptoms: Still just tummy stretching pains and occasionally over-sensitive/emotional.

Best moment this week: TL feeling her move, her nursery being painted, and feeling her movements get bigger and stronger.  It's truly a miracle.  I also enjoyed shopping with my mom and MIL for her.

Looking forward to: Her nursery furniture is coming this week (crib & changing table/dresser) and I ordered baby hangers so I can hang the little outfits we've gotten so far.

We had her 20 week ultrasound almost two weeks ago and it was amazing to see all of her... she's healthy and everything looked great... that's all we hope for!  We decided on her name shortly after I got pregnant and I am excited to share that soon. :)  We feel so grateful for the love and support of our family and friends.

You look great. I see a tiny bump but you could still hide it if you wanted to! Glad you are feeling good and that baby girl is healthy!

Very exciting that furniture is coming. It will be fun doing the nursery. I can't wait to hear what names you're considering (if you decide to share that is).

Feeling the baby move was my absolute favorite! I never got sick of that feeling! I actually woke up in the hospital in a panic because I couldn't feel her moving---then I quickly realized, duh!, she's over there sleeping! :)
