bump - 22 weeks!

22 weeks 2 days

Total Weight Gain: 136.5....so +16.5.  I am ok with gaining weight...just terrified of the cankles....terrified.

Maternity Clothes:  Yes!  I feel like I have enough now to get by the rest of pregnancy.  That might change when I get really big this summer or if I have a lot of swelling.

Stretch Marks:  Nope!  My Mom had them so I have already come to terms that I will get them.  My Doctor says the creams don't help prevent them - they do help with the itchy skin.

Sleep:  I am sleepy all the time.  I feel weaker too and find it annoying that I get exhausted in the middle of tasks that I used to breeze through like cleaning our house.  I take more breaks now. 

Best Moment of the Week:  My little sister had a bridal shower this weekend!  Her friends did such an amazing job.  I could not get over how cute everything was.

Miss Anything:  My body.  I know I am an asshole for typing that but I caught a look at my backside the other day and gasped.  Plus I am trying to be honest in this blog.  Pregnancy isn't all rainbows and sunshine people!  Not looking at that again till 2014...geez.

Movement:  I feel her more and more everyday!  I mostly feel her at night which is why I don't fall asleep as early...I feel like we are hanging out.  :)

Food Cravings:  Not really.  I am sick of drinking water.  I have been making infused water, trying different store bought flavored water products and I have been having the occasional iced tea.  I know you are thinking I am a bad Mom for having caffeine!  Well that is bunch of crap.  You can have 250 mg a day so having a glass of tea or a coffee is totally fine.  Now I only have one or two a week but that is currently all I want right now.  Plus I drink my coffee black and I my tea is 2/3 unsweet with 1/3 sweet so I am not having that much sugar.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Still eggs and breakfast meats.  The smell of beer which is bizarre.  Oh and I can't watch bloody or scary movies.  We were watching one the other night and I had to leave the room....that has never happened before!

Gender:  Girl!

Symptoms:  Dizzy, sleepy, and dumb.  Also speaking my mind more which is bound to get me in trouble at work.

Exercise:    I ran 3x (3 miles each).  Slow as molasses though.

Happy or Moody:  Happy 90% of the time! 

Looking forward to:  Joining a church and picking out her name.  I am pretty much sold on her name but almost feel like I have to see her first!  As far as churches, we have gone to several and have pretty much decided what we will be (we were raised different religions).  It is important to both of us that our children attend church regularly.

Below are pictures from Sam's shower!!!!

The guests all had their own glass to take home with them.

Delicious food!
