Weekly Check-In: 22 Weeks!!

Weekly Check-In

How far along?
22 weeks 4 days
Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

Maternity clothes?

Yes!! I really need to go buy me more pants!


The charlie horses have been staying at bay but little guy wakes me up moving now. I dont mind it though. I really enjoy knowing he is doing good. Like the paragraph above says you will start to learn his sleep cycles that is so true. 7-9pm He is super active and 5 am- 8 am very active!!

Best moment this week?
Is starting to work on the baby bedding with my Nannie!! I love seeing her ideas come alive. Seeing my mom and my grandmothers excitement makes my heart happy!! Another great moment is my Aunt and my cousin have started planning my baby shower and knowing that it will be here before I know it is super exciting!! Last but not least I can see the kicks on the outside of my belly. So amazing!!
 Here is my recent picture from this past Friday at 22 weeks 3 days:

The dogs had to be in the shot too!!

Food cravings:

My latest craving was Beef Enchildas and couldnt wait to eat them. I got so full on chips I could only eat one. So happy John is my garbage disposal and ate the rest!!! We are going to the fair today and cant wait to eat a corny dog!

Belly button in or out?

In-I had my belly button pierced when I was 15 and took it out when I graduated HS. Its starting to stretch alittle.


Yes lots!!!
What I miss?

I could live without pregnancy dreams. They are some of the most vivid dreams I have ever had. The last 3 nights I have dreamed of fighting with someone. Then I dreamed about a friend that got married at the rangers stadium and while she was walking up the aisle she was texting. Ha ha ha....

What I'm looking forward to:

Nov 4 and passing the gestational diabetes test. Even though the doctor has a feeling I might fail it since I had some endocrine issues that sent me to the reproductive endocrinologist to begin with. But my PCOS was not driven by insulin. I had my insulin checked when I was diagnosed and I passed. So we will see. Keep your fingers crossed for me.


Im still looking forward to Vday!! But another milestone I cant wait for is getting to do the 3d/4d elective U/S around the beginning of December!!!
