How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: Three pounds total. I am okay with it! Rick and I just watched a netflix movie called Sugar Coated. I get so mad at our government officials and doctors that are lying to us by letting us believe/ingest things that can kill us. Give us the information and let us decide our fate!! UGH!! Since I can’t have an alcohol I have somewhat swapped out soda/orange juice to get a different type of liquid. But I have always known how bad they are for me! I am going to make some drastic changes in my diet not only for me but for my little one too.
Maternity clothes: Boy, maternity clothes are expensive! I went to the maternity store Two peas in a pod….it was super expensive! I walked out of it with nothing, Rick would be proud:)
Sleep: Sleep is getting more and more uncomfortable. I find myself more and more on my sides then flat on my back. On my belly is out of the question, which is of course what I prefer.
Best moment this week: I had this memorial weekend all to myself. Rick went to Vegas with some friends. So I had the whole weekend to catch up on a few things. I got a manicure and pedicure which felt so relaxing! For the babies room I am having a woodland themed room. I have been working on a woodland mobile for the babies crib. This weekend allowed me to catch up on it. I almost finished it and I must say that it is too cute for words! It took so much work but I love how it turned out!
Miss anything? Not really missing anything.
Movement: This week especially I felt a lot of movement! One night he was still moving at 1 in the morning
Food cravings: Orange juice! But this will end because it has 22 grams of sugar. Crazy! I would rather juice my own oranges.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: I have noticed some numbing and tingling in one area of my leg, which is weird. I asked my doctor and he said the baby could be pressing on a nerve. It’s not bad just noticeable. Sometimes when I turn over in bed I can feel my round ligament pull a little, which doesn’t always feel the best. But still a great pregnancy!
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I would say happy, Rick might disagree because I have been nagging him lately to get him in the habit of picking up after himself, because when the baby comes we will be busy! It just doesn’t seem to sink in the quickest. It seems I am not the only wife that complains about this….haha! Oh, we finally put the crib together! I think seeing the crib put together really made a little more real for Rick. We both agree that it looks so nice!
Looking forward to: We are going to Yellowstone National Park next week, Saturday June 4th to June 11th. I have never been but have always wanted to go! I am so excited to see my family and just have a low key relaxing vacation. It seems like whenever we go home to Wisconsin we have like a million things to do, none of which is just sit and enjoy each others company for long. So I am really excited to do that.
Days to go: 124 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a spaghetti squash. He is about 11 inches from head to heel and is almost 1 pound. He is staring to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he is even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises still lack any pigment. He is also growing fine hair that will cover his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin. Inside his belly, his pancreas – essential for the production of some hormones is developing steadily.
