Weekly Update: 22 Weeks

How far along? 22 weeks, 6 Days
Baby Size: Papaya (what is that??)
Total weight gain: Approximately 9-10 lbs
Maternity clothes? Well duh. I went splurge on some maternity pajamas and even got 
some nursing tanks for once the baby gets here. They were on sale...why not
Stretch marks? No but I have my zebra line. 
Sleep: Okay, the sleep thing is starting to become an issue. I miss my full night of sleep. 
Best moment this week: Filming my belly move and sending the video to my parents. So cool :)
Miss Anything? Hmmmm....well I will say right now I miss sleep. 
Movement: Homegirl was going crazy at the beginning of the week. She just wouldn't stop and
it was so cool because while I was teaching dance, she was moving up a storm too. 
I'm hoping she is already a natural dancer. 
Food cravings: A homemade cupcake. Nothing from a bakery because those just aren't
as good as mine sometimes. I wanted a moist Betty Crocker yellow cake mix cupcake with 
chocolate icing. Needless to say, I baked two dozen and nearly demolished them all. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Threw up Thursday at work because apparently that is just 
the thing to do now. Want to know something funny? I peed my pants while throwing up.
I now have no bladder control while dealing with morning sickness. Fun!! 
Symptoms: Just pretty dang tired and eating everything in sight. 
Belly Button in or out? Still relatively normal. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Anxious. Ready for my shower; ready for the furniture to come in; and 
ready to setup everything. And of course, ready to kiss Little Bit's sweet face. 
Looking forward to: The fact that I will be done work in two weeks. I know that makes me sound 
lazy, but seriously what pregnant person doesn't want a break? I am so grateful to get some
time off before she comes so I can really begin nesting and cleaning like crazy. I also have
numerous books I need to finish reading to help prepare me for natural birth and breast feeding!
So I'll be studying the whole time, LOL. 

I am just loving being pregnant. I think it's amazing. Hoping I can do this all the time, LOL. 

So according to one lady I'm huge for six months. 
What do you think?
