22 weeks

Maternity clothes: Need more. I have 2 pairs of pants acceptable for work that fit right now.

Stretch marks: still *fingers crossed*

Sleep: Weird. It's like, when I sleep I'm out cold... but I wake up a lot too.

Best moment this week: Finding the perfect crib set! I have grand ideas for this baby boy's room...

Movement: Here and there, but nothing too exciting. I think he likes it when I lean forward a little bit... either that or he hates it and is trying to tell me to get the hell off of him. Either way, that's when I fell him the most, but it makes it impossible for Nick to feel him. :-(

Food cravings: Still mac & cheese!

Gender: BOY!! Still no names...

What I miss: I miss my body. Not in the way I used to look or anything like that... (I'm SUPPOSED to gain weight and pretty much past ever hoping to look like I did 10 years ago.) It's the fact that a lot of the time, I don't feel like me. My body doesn't react to things the way it used to and it's annoying trying to figure out all the new changes! I have a newfound lactose intolerance, I can't poo or I'm pooing too much, I have random headaches, the list goes on.

What I am looking forward to: Finding out baby boy's eye/hair/skin color combination!

What I have learned: Halfway and then some = soon I'll have to face the fact that I'm going to have to go into labor. LABOR. And DELIVERY. When I think about it, my mind always goes from pregnant, uncomfortable (but worth it) to Yay I'm a mom and Nick's a dad. I always gloss over that middle part with the contracting and pushing and whatnot. Gonna have to deal with that eventually. But not right now. Right now I want some mac & cheese.

Milestones: Um, swelling? I'm swelling to the point where my wedding ring doesn't fit anymore.
