22 weeks and counting…

PapayaHow far along are you? 22 weeks

Total weight gain/loss so far: Still down 8 pounds (by doctor’s weight) – at least I’m not still losing.

Wearing any maternity clothes? Yes.

How’s the sleep? It’s okay. Most nights are pretty good.

Best moment of the week: Feeling Peanut move more and more

Do you miss anything? Sub sandwiches

How much is baby moving? Definitely. He’s going to cause some bruising by the time he arrives!

What are the food cravings like? Chips and salsa…specifically Chili’s salsa

Is anything making you queasy or sick? There’s nothing I can point my finger to, but there are some scents that don’t sit well.

Have you started to show yet? Yep. Nice little bump working its way out there.

Boy or girl? Peanut is a HE!

Any labor signs? No. And not for many weeks yet.

Is the belly button in or out? Still in, but getting a little flatter.

Are the wedding rings on or off? On

What’s the mood? Pretty good.

How big is the baby? Peanut should be measuring about 10.5 to 11.8 inches long and weigh between 12.7 to 20.8 ounces…or, the size of a papaya. (Or, for you guys who have “no idea what these fruits are” [as said by Jon], the size of a baseball mitt.)

What’s baby up to this week? Peanut’s beginning to sleep in cycles, about 12 to 14 hours per day

What are you looking forward to? Getting to see Peanut on ultrasound again on Monday. (He was uncooperative when we had our anatomy scan in May so we get to do it again.)
