Over Halfway There- 22 Weeks!

 Pregnancy Highlights:
Size of Baby: The baby is the size of a spaghetti squash. She is about 11-12 inches long and weighs about a pound.

Movement: I can feel her move all the time! It is the most amazing feeling in the world. She's most active at bedtime- I swear she does somersaults in there. She's moving enough now that I can see the movements from the outside. It's crazy to see my belly move like that.

Gender: It's a GIRL! Little miss Emerson Olivia.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 13-14 lbs. I gained at least 3 while we are on vacation so I'm not surprised by the big jump. My belly has grown so much in the last two weeks and my arms and face are definitely filling out.

Maternity Clothes: I've still been wearing one pair of regular work pants but I think yesterday was the last day of that. It looks like it's stictly maternity from here on out.

Sleep: The belly is starting to get in the way and it takes me a while to get comfy but once I do I sleep great.

What I miss: the USA (not pregnancy related but definitely true)

Cravings: Mexican food. I cannot wait to get to Texas...

Symptoms: My lower back is starting to hurt a little bit but nothing too bad. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good.

Best Moment this week: Strangers commenting on my belly (I finally look pregnant and not just chubby) and being able to call her by her name instead of just "the baby."

Baby Purchases: Just the outfits and book in Cape Town. I've done lots of looking though!

I really can't believe we are over halfway there. Just 18 weeks to go!

Awww...you look so cute. Can't wait until you are here, lots of Mexican food. It is hard to believe that you are over halfway. Oscar and Gracie are getting a haircut today. I will send pictures. Abby didn't go she was not feeling well. Love Mom

Rachel and John said...

oh I love your shirt! Where is it from? My doctor today told me that most ladies feel the baby more at night, just because we aren't as busy!

You look FANTASTIC, girl! I hear you on the "finally looking pregnant" - makes it so much more fun!
