Twenty Two

How far along: 22 weeks!!

Weight gain/loss: Around 18... I weighed myself this morning. I really need to just wait until I go to the doctor from now on. It makes me all self-conscious

Body changes: Nothing new, really. Just a bigger belly and maybe some stretch marks on my hips. 

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Movement: Holy moly, does this kiddo move! I'm feeling a lot more these days! Last night she even woke me up twice kicking around. A couple days ago, she made me squeal...she kicked really hard and then she shoved! Joe's also been able to feel her a lot more lately. I love it. =)

Sleep: Meh. I always suspected that I was a light sleeper, but now I know it. I end up sleeping mostly on my left side because it's the most comfortable spot...but then I wake up with a sore neck. Sigh.

What I'm looking forward to: My appointment next week and then going home to see family just a few days after that! =D

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach! Oh, how I miss it. Being able to wear the clothes that I want to... Oh, and not grunting when I get off the couch. 

Cravings: Everything sweet. Seriously. I only thought I had a sweet tooth before! I bought some Ben & Jerry's Americone Dream a couple days ago and it's been all I can think about lately! Sad, isn't it?

Symptoms: Heartburn! And of course the occasional back and round ligament pain too.

Best moment this week: Hearing Joe say, "How is it possible to miss someone you've never even met?" It melts my heart and makes me happy because I feel exactly the same way.

Also, today was my sweet little niece's birthday!!! This cute little girl is a whopping 2 years old now!!! I still can't figure out how she's already TWO. {What am I going to do when my baby girl is 2?! Cry, I think. =P}

Poor thing has an Auntie Sarah with preggo brain... Her present has yet to arrive at her house AND I forgot to call today. Epic, epic fail. Thankfully she probably won't remember when she's 16! ;-) Shhhhh, don't tell her!

P.S. One more day to enter the MyMemories giveaway!! You've got a great chance to win - only 4 people have entered!

I can definitely relate to the preggo brain:p It's no joke and really sucks! I forget things 2 seconds after I say I'm going to do something (forgetting to do it) or after someone tells me something. Terrible--- We are only 5 weeks apart. You look great!!!

Your belly is so cute! Don't worry about the weight gain. My rule was as long as I was less pounds than weeks I was doing well!
