22 weeks!

How far along? 22 weeks!

Baby's size? A papaya. 

Weight Gain?  Not sure, I haven't weighed since the Doctor two weeks ago but I'm sure it's gone up.

Maternity clothes? Definitely.  I can't wear regular pants or tops anymore.  I tried wearing a regular top to work last week and one of the girls informed me that it was time to put it away.

Sleep?  So-so.  Not too bad.  I'm not waking up in the middle of the night anymore so that's nice.  My shoulders are sore from laying on them but I feel pretty rested in the morning for the most part.  I am including a picture of the insanity that is our bed right now. It's a whole ordeal getting in and out of the cloud I have made for myself but nothing else feels comfortable.   Oh and the stuffed animal and kid pillow are totally necessary. 

 Food? Still everything but barbecue sauce and grilled meats. 

Best moment this week? A few!  Shopping for Star last weekend with J.  We went to the mall Saturday night before a movie and hit all of the kids stores looking for sales.  We got some cute items.  I also found a couple of really cute outfits last Friday.  Here's one dress complete with tights:

Here's her closet so far, complete with lucky coconut.   We're putting in an additional rod to hang clothes.  The shirt on the right is a gift from my Grandfather.  His wife went to Russia and mailed a baby top.  He also mailed a bib from Harrods.  Very cute.

Other best moments include painting the nursery.  Pink on walls scares the crap out of me but I think I can see it coming together.  You can see the pink in the picture above and in this one of Jamie working on the nursery.  We both painted but he looks much cuter with pink paint on his knuckles.  :)

I also purchased 100 baby Einstein songs for $10 on itunes this week and I have been playing them everyday at work for star.  I am currently listening to my iphone play "do your ears hang low" to my belly while typing. 

Movement? Little girl has been moving like crazy the past two days.  Yesterday is the first time that I have felt her move constantly all day.  Last night she was very active as well.  I think I will play her music at night now since that's when she is most active.  I still can't wait for J to feel her move.

Symptoms? Oh!  I got my first round ligament cramp this weekend in the middle of the night.  Holy Buhjeezus!  It hurt!  I thought I could walk it out (WRONG!) so I went to the bathroom and may as well have had a wooden peg leg, my leg was of no use.  I walked back to bed feeling like an amputee and hunched over the end of the bed in agony.  J woke up and couldn't do much.  It went away a couple of minutes later but yowza that hurt!  I am not looking forward to that again!

Gender? IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!  Jamie is still coming around.  I think painting the nursery pink helped.

What I miss?  Nada!

What I'm looking forward to?  J feeling the baby move, that's all I want right now.

Milestones:  We settled on a name.  It will most likely change though, knowing us.

What I love: Wilson's boom-boom room.  I have included some pictures.

Emotions:  Feeling good.

I still crack up every time I hear you talk about your dog's "boom boom" room. Hilarious.

Round ligament pains are just that ... a pain ... in the ass! lol

Jamie should be able to feel her move really really soon. My hubs felt her a few days ago. It was brief, but she let out a nice kick (or punch ... still can't tell the difference).

P.S. - Have you ever gotten the feeling like you're getting kicked in the crotch ... literally?? Baby girl does it once in a blue moon ... and it's not a nice feeling! lol

I am so glad things are going well for you. I knew it was a girl :) Your symptoms - mostly food aversions, sounded to me like a girlie girl was in there. So happy for you and your hubs!!
