I should have posted this on Monday but between going to the doctor and getting caught up on stuff around the house, I didn´t have a chance. So here it is, two days late...
How far along: 22 weeks and 2 days
Due date: 1/16/12
Symptoms: Still just occasional sciatic nerve pain (lower back)
Total weight gain: About 13/14 pounds, more or less
Food cravings: BBQ Shrimp and Grits from my favorite local restaurant in Charleston...only 10 more days till I´m home and can eat all the yummy Charleston food that I´m craving and missing!
Food aversions: None, really
Movement: Lots, especially in the morning and at night, I love feeling his kicks and Abe can feel them now too! And I like watching my belly move when he kicks :-)
Stretch marks: None so far, thank goodness...
Maternity clothes: Pants, definitely, shirts, I´m still getting away with normal shirts that stretch
Sleep: Not nearly as great as it used to be :-( I´m a stomach sleeper, which is impossible at this point in the pregnancy, so I rotate between my two sides with tons of pillows surrounding me and between my knees. I also get up to use the bathroom anywhere from 3-5 times a night...
Belly button–in or out: Somewhere in the middle, definitely not in, but still hasn´t popped completely out yet, kind of just laying flat and stretched out for now
Best thing that happened this week: Seeing my handsome boy on Monday and knowing that he is alive, healthy, and well!
Any baby-related purchases this week: We picked up his crib, mattress, and a rug for his room!
Milestones reached: Everyday with this little miracle is a milestone!
What size is the baby: According to the Bump, he´s about the size of a papaya, weighing about 1 pound and about 8 inches from his head to his butt
What I miss: Wine, playing soccer, dancing Zumba, eating cold deli meat sandwiches, sleeping on my stomach
What I am looking forward to: Going home to Charleston in 10 days! I´ll be home for 3weeks and having my baby shower on Oct. 1st...can´t wait! :-)
