How Far Along: 22 weeks
Baby is now the size of a papaya!
Baby's settling into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained about 11 lbs so far. Not too bad for being over half way!
Gender: Baby Braxton is a little BOY!! Knox Pittman Braxton :)
Movement: He is moving ALL the time, especially after I eat. Shane has been able to feel him kicking a few times. Shane will keep his hand on my belly for 20 mins waiting for that moment when he kicks hard enough to feel. He was sooo excited to feel him!!
What I miss: Being able to sit upright without pressure in my lower belly. AND being able to eat without horrible indigestion!
Sleep: Sleeping good for the most part minus Shane's snoring & having to pee several times a night.
Symptoms: More indigestion!
Notes: We successfully had our "sex party" and it was amazing. So glad we were able to Skype Lellie and Rob in California so that they were able to be a part of the excitement! We are so blessed to have such great friends and family members!! I have more pictures on my camera that I need to upload from the party but here is one that Aunt Rhonda got with her cell phone.
- Clean out & repaint the guest bedroom in preparation for Knox :)
- Start our registry for baby items
Cravings: apples and ice cold water
Best Moments this week: Shopping with Ireland and buying super cute maternity clothes. So far I had only bought one pair of maternity jeans and one maternity long sleeve tshirt. I now have a pair of capri's, 2 tshirts, 2 shirts and a dress. I cannot wait for it to get warm so I can wear them!!
What we are looking forward to: A nice, relaxing weekend together!
And here is what I'm looking like: this picture was from last week (week 21)
