Baby Update: 22 Weeks....One pound and counting!

How far along? 22 weeks
Baby Size: A spaghetti squash, and just over 1 pound
  Total weight gain: 12 pounds (mouth open wide in shock)
Maternity clothes? I've officially retired pretty much all of my normal clothes. I've found maternity skirts to be a little difficult, so I am wearing jeans (maternity) a lot more than normal lately.
Stretch Marks? Not yet!
Sleep: It's been a little rough. I wake up every 2 hours or so.
Best moment this week: Putting together the crib and getting the invitation to my baby shower
Miss Anything? My fleece-lined tights. They are just too tight and itchy for me now.
Movement: Baby moves A LOT, and mostly during the day. My movement involves small workouts in my living room and trips a few times a week to the gym.
Food cravings: Watermelon, watermelon, and more watermelon. I've started buying them 2 at a time.
Anything making you queasy or sick: All food sounds pretty delicious these days
Gender Prediction: We will find out when baby arrives! Make sure you vote in the green box on the right side of this blog.
Symptoms: VERY dry skin
Mood: Still excited! I peek in to look at the crib every day, and I'm getting excited for my first baby shower in a few weeks. Due to having 3 showers in 3 different states, I ended up with three registries: one at BuyBuyBaby, one at Babies R Us, and one at
Looking forward to: Going shopping with a pregnant friend to find dresses for our showers. It will be great to find something that makes me feel nice:)

I love to fellowship with others and hear what they have to say. I would ask, however, that you be mindful of what you write and try to be uplifting and respectful. Thank you for sharing!
