Bumpdate: 22 weeks

22 weeks pregnantHow Far Along: 22 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Well, I haven’t been to the doctor for an official weigh in but I think I am at eleven pounds gained so far.  I am feeling pretty good about that number.  I was scared when I first found out I was pregnant that I would easily pack on the pounds but so far it has been a nice steady slow gain and I am glad.

Maternity Clothes: I may have to give in and actually buy some more maternity clothes on my own.  I’ve been absolutely LOVING the beautiful clothes Kenny’s Mom and Grandma generously showered me with, but I may have to throw in a few more items.  I’ve still got several months of growing after all.

Gender: It’s a precious little girl!

Movement: I was getting worried when I wasn’t feeling her move all-the-time, but I read an article that said at about 21 to 22 weeks the baby gets into a steady 12 to 14 hour a day sleep pattern so the times when you don’t feel them kicking is probably when they are sleeping.  I still feel her sweet steady kicks and just love them to pieces.  I can’t believe something so small can make such big, strong movements!  I’m still waiting for Kenny to ‘officially’ feel her. 

Sleep: I’m sleeping pretty good recently except for the standard ‘wake up to go to the restroom’ three times a night!

What I miss: I’m feeling a little more confident to be up and about, I’ll see the doctor again in about a week so hopefully they’ll give me good news and I will feel even stronger and less cautious, but in the mean time I miss my little outings with Kenny.  I know he would love to go to a museum or national park or somewhere fun but thankfully he is completely understanding and supportive of my feelings and need to be laying down or resting a lot.  We will both do anything we can to keep our sweet girl growing strong.

Cravings: We had Ted’s Mexican food with Kenny’s parents a few weeks ago and I cannot for the life of me stop craving their flour tortillias and cheese.  A strawberry cream slush from Sonic is right up there on the cravings radar too. YUM!

Best Moment this week: Just having one more week knowing our little girl is safe, getting bigger and developing more is the best, and everything I’m praying for.

    I agree…… you look so beautiful, and you are doing so good. You look better everyday and I’m sure you will get a good report from the Dr. Remember this is not an illiness. You should be having fun at least most of the time.
    Love you
