How far along? 22 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss:Oh I just gave up with the scale. To be honest I can’t even remember. I weigh myself still sometimes but still I can’t remember where I started.
How big is baby? Baby is the size of a Papaya. The average fetus measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 oz.
- Now that she has more developed eyes and lips, she’s looking even more like a newborn.
- She’s sleeping in cycles — about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they’re probably those times you’re not feeling any kicks!)
Maternity Clothes?Yeah… but I am soooo ready for some real jeans! I don’t like these maternity jeans.
Stretch Marks?I still haven’t found any but that still doesn’t mean anything. I had some previously from growing up on my hips and I can’t even tell if they old or new but I think old.
Best moment this week?Listening to my husband talk to Peanut every night before bed and every morning before he leaves for work.
Movement? She needs to leave my poor bladder alone, PLEASE! I usually yell at her, Don’t make me come in there… lol.
Food Cravings/Aversions? This week I think I finally found my first craving… Orange Soda. Weird I know but dang!
What I miss: I miss my semi flat stomach (it never was flat but dang). I miss my regular jeans. I miss wearing my belt buckle!
What I’m looking forward to: Seeing what color Peanuts eyes are going to be. Her hair too but her eyes have been driving me nuts! Hubby has blue and I have Brown (or as hubby calls Breen).
Nausea/Vomiting? We’ve been good in this department so far this week. The snot from my cold chokes me but still…. that doesn’t count.
Labor signs? No but truthfully this girl doesn’t even know what those are like….
Gender? We have had them verify it’s a girl 3 different times. Think it’s a girl?!?!
Belly Button in or out? Well, it’s still in but not by much. It’s soooo freaky looking.
Wedding rings on or off? We’re lucky here, they still fit!!
Sleep? Oh let’s not even talk about this. OY! So between being extremely stressed out with so much to do and hubby snoring and not getting comfortable on the bed (and the list goes on) I’m lucky to get 4-5 hrs a night.
Weekly Wisdom: For a while I almost thought naps hindered my night time sleep but now I’m thinking if you get the chance for a nap, take it because you’ll be up in the night anyway…
Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Then I was told June 30, then July 4th, then June 26, then June 27 and after the 3-D ultra sound June 28. I guess she’ll come when she’s ready, right?
