Diary of a Pregnant Lady: 22 Weeks


Week 21- July 15th - July 21st

Due Date: November 18, 2011

How Big is Baby: As big as a papaya OR for all you men- as big as an overinflated football.

Symptoms: I cannot complain! Seriously, if it wasn't for a stomach that gets caught in bathroom stalls or that bounces against the counter while I'm doing dishes (sorry if I bruised your head, son) I wouldn't even notice that I was pregnant. I always worried that I had the potential to be an unhappy pregnant woman, but I'm proving myself wrong. I'm elated! I'm not a total negative Nelly. Being pregnant is easy (so far). Sidenote: I'm still in the happy, joyous second trimester. Check back in three months when I'm ready to reach up there and pull my son out.

Cravings: Still no cravings, which is kinda a bummer. I love when people do cravings tables at their showers, but I'd have nothing to put on mine.

ETA: I did just have a craving for a watermelon margarita with a pack of twizzlers (to use as a straw of course).

Sleep: Now that I have a pregnancy pillow, sleep is as lovely as it's ever been. I should note, I've never been an insomniac (don't hate). Even before I got knocked up I could sleep a solid 10 hours without a hitch.

I Can't Live Without: Ugh. Water.. right before bed. I seriously need to drink a gallon every night at exactly bed time o'clock. This leads to many middle of the night bathroom trips.

I Miss: That darn watermelon martini. Tanning my back while at the pool.

I am Looking Forward to: Getting the nursery set up!

Milestones: We had another ultrasound on Tuesday because the little guy has a bit of reflux in his kidneys. It's not a huge thing, but it means extra ultrasounds which is okay with me!

Awkward Moments: My belly button is slowly turning inside out. Yikes.

Exercise: Treadmill and I just joined a prenatal yoga class in hopes of meeting some new friends in the area.

Diet: I'm trying not to worry about it. Although I'm gaining poundage like WOAH, my doctor hasn't said a word about it. I figure that if she's not worried, I'm not going to worry.

Movement: More kicks, but nothing consistent yet and nothing that John can detect.

Gender: It's a boy!

Labor Signs: It’s far too soon for this!

Congrats on your pregnancy!!

Yes! What is with needing a gallon of water right before bedtime? I'm the same way. Could there be a more inopportune time?

And my sister just commented on my belly button today. Pregnancy is weird. :)

Love the blue polka dot dress! I love polka dots. So happy to see that you're enjoying pregnancy! I sure hope I do! I'm having little daily freakouts. Lately it's over having to cut caffeine and getting a fat face. Haha. As silly as it is, it's the truth! I find that even without being pregnant yet, I love to drink lots of water before bed. What is with that? Total oxymoron.

HAHA - sitting here while the hubs watches sports and " Check back in three months when I'm ready to reach up there and pull my son out." literally made me snarf crystal light out of my nose. ;)
