22 weeks

Holy Toledo! Do I really only have 6 more weeks in my 2nd trimester? And do I really only have 15 more weeks until I'm considered full term? My full term date is on Christmas Eve by the way, so that means you and I better start thinking of Christmas gifts for everyone STAT or else all my last minute peeps will end up with Snuggies

Sorry for the no post yesterday, I really don't have an excuse. This weekend is going to be a major chillaxer since last weekend was the Santa Barbara getaway. We got the gym and grocery shopping on Saturday, and then football on Sunday (GO BRONCOS!) I am SO ready for an extra couple hours of sleep tho. Although I will say, Troy is preparing me for early mornings and lack of sleep. I am the lightest sleeper these days. When Nick so much as blinks his eyes, I wake up. And since Nick works Saturday mornings and gets up at our normal 4:30 am, I'm usually up and at em then too (thank GOD for DVR! The gym doesn't even open till 7 on Saturdays).

I will post a pic of my glorious round belly once I get home and I know I am horrible about posting pics, but I really will, PROMISE!! Along with my SB pics :)

This isn't Troy, but I thought it was cool to be able to see what a 22 week old baby looks like in 3D ultrasound

How far along? 22 Weeks!! I believe that puts me either at 6 months or a taaad under 6 months. Lemme just tell you, I feel fabulous either way

Baby's size? My little T is about 11 inches and is the size of a summer squash and weighs a smidge under 1 lb. YES- this is exciting that he's starting to gain some serious lb's

Weight Gain? Well according to my last appointment about 2.5 weeks ago, I have gained about 11lbs. BUT I have a feeling I'll have gained some more serious lb's when I weigh in on the 22nd (my next appointment). My maternity clothes I have gotten still fit the same though, just bigger in the mid section (let's keep it that way, shall we?) I think the gym is helping some

Maternity clothes? I can wear regular tight tank tops and stretchy long sleeves and of course all my maxi's, but I'm in all maternity bottoms from here on out

Stretch marks? Nope. *knock on wood*

Belly button in or out? I say by our babymoon trip to Denver in October, it'll be right at the surface. It's really shallow right now

Sleep? Love it and I can fall asleep faster than Paris Hilton and snag a new boyfriend, but once I'm awake, I'm awake.

Foods I am loving?
SWEETS!! I had the strongest craving for a raspberry turnover yesterday starting around 2 and didn't stop thinking about one till I fell asleep. I am still eating my coffee cup of coldstone every night :) It's a good thing I'm too lazy to drive to the grocery store and get donuts

Foods I am hating? I still can't eat ground turkey. I LIVED off of ground turkey pre pregnancy. I never bought red meat, but since I've been growing a boy, all he demands is red meat from his mama.

Best moment this week? Nick feeling Troy move. Nicks face was priceless and he had a smile from ear to ear and kept saying "that's crazy". A close tie to this would be when Nick and I SAW Troy move under my stomach. COOLEST/TRIPIEST thing ever! I can't wait till he gets super strong with those kicks

Movement? Oh yes! Its not constant, but normally I'll feel him move everyday throughout the day for a brief minute or 2.

Symptoms? Nada. Just want my pastries!

Gender? A LITTLE MAN!!

What I miss? Margaritas and wine, but I'd give up anything for my little guy

What I'm looking forward to? Getting his nursery all set up in October, and of course our trip to Denver. Oh and my bday on the 27th of this month!! Gonna take the day off to pamper myself and eat a buttload of pancakes haha!

Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy every second -- very wisdomly advice, right?

Milestone: over half way there!

Emotions: Happiness. Oh and weepy. I swear, I cry at the littlest things and things hurt my feelings way more than they should

Haha I am overly sensitive these days, too. It's insane how your hormones can get the better of you! Hoooray for 6 months!

Your little tum is so's kinda pointed. I so admire you for being able to stay so active throughout your pregnancy. Now, sit back and enjoy a pastry. ☺
