22 Weeks

First, let me apologize for being such a crappy blogger!  I haven't been feeling fabulous, not bad, but certainly not amazing.  Just worn out!  We're trying to find an apartment, because, while we SO appreciate being able to live with J's grandmother for almost a year.  But, it's totally not right, and the last thing we wanted to do, to continue living there with a new born.  Plus, we're ready to have our own space again.  We've been looking, with a limited budget because we do not want to overextend ourselves with Pierce on the way!  We may have found a place!  Close to work even!  So...more on that later!

22 Weeks
I completely forgot to take a pic today!  Check back, I hope to add one later!

How far along are you? 
22 Weeks

Total weight gain: 
I'm feeling like a beached whale...already.  
Just kidding, slightly.  It's not that bad really.  

How big is baby?:
What to expect says a papaya.  As I do not eat papayas, I had it in my mind that a papaya is smaller than last week's spaghetti squash!
But, I can tell that, no matter the produce, Pierce has grown!

well, snap, I was WRONG, that sucker is big!! lol
Maternity clothes
Always...except for my pajamas...that's usually worth a giggle or two the past few weeks.  My belly pokes out from under the shirt unless I steal J's Army tshirts that are forever long for some reason
Now I've started just wearing a sports bra and undies, can you say COMFORTABLE?!

Stretch marks?:  
None, yet.  
Still applying Palmers religiously
But I've started getting spider veins on my belly?!  
I guess because I'm so white and just don't tan

Seems to be getting restless, I'm wondering if Pierce is moving around and that wakes me.  But, I sleep so soundly that I don't feel it
Last night I woke up with a stabbing pain in my back, on my left side above my hip.  Kept me awake and almost in tears for about an hour then it stopped just as quickly as it started!
Whatever that was, it can stay away!  I didn't worry about Pierce because it never left my back, and he was still wiggling away, so I knew he was ok

Best moment this week?:
Pierce kicked hard enough to move my hand while it was resting on my belly!
J had his head on my belly one night and got kicked!  It was his first real time to feel him!

Daily, and some days all day.  he's become an active little guy

Food cravings?:
Popcicles!  At least I'm eating sugar free lol
and sweet sweet seedless watermelon!  YUM!

Food aversions?:
Not too bad, kind of depends on the day

Labor signs?: 
NO!  Stay put Baby!

Belly button in or out?: 
In...not sure if I think it will or won't pop

What I miss: 
bending over, putting my pants on normally...I have to do some wide legged, sitting down, funny dance and can imagine it's only going to get worse lol

What I'm looking forward to: 
getting our place so I can set up Pierce's nursery

What I'm not looking forward to: 
Summer, I'm already hot! 
We've already hit 91 degrees!

Knowing Baby is a BOY, and knowing his name.
He has an identity!
Making his registry at Target!!


  1. Hope baby boy lets you start feeling better soon!! :) You will have SO much fun setting up the nursery! Hope to see pictures!! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  2. I'm dreading the summer heat too! Kentucky has already been hot this year as well. I'm thinking it's going to be a long scorching summer.
    I so need to start my baby registry. I'm such a procrastinator.
    Exciting news about the new place. Can't wait to hear more :)

  3. i gotta say that's the biggest papaya i've ever seen! these produce analogies are AWFUL! lol
