[she is 22 weeks pregnant]

How far along: 22 weeks
Size: An ear of corn
Symptoms: Little aches and pains if I've been walking or doing a lot. I get intermittently tired throughout the day still. And for appetite, my stomach can't keep up with my eyeballs thanks to indigestion. Not a bad thing because I don't overeat! I'm super emotional this week. It's a bit embarrassing but I am pretty irritable and weepy. I feel borderline ridiculous but everything I read says it's just a normal part of the process. Honestly I am so full of joy, it just weirds me out when I realize how boo-hoo I can get.
Prepping for baby: We discussed her possible nursery location this week. While we likely won't do anything major for a while, it was fun to talk about the game plan. We also went looking at rocking/glider chairs too. It's just a lot of fun looking right now. We know that initially she will be staying in our room so there is no rush putting a nursery together but the planning is really fun. Our home has four bedrooms and three are upstairs with the master downstairs. Nothing about walking up and down stairs in the middle of the night sounds appealing so we are completely fine sharing our room with her until we get a handle on things. We did buy the most adorable little hat with ears the other day. It was on sale and too cute to pass up.
Stretch marks: Still no signs of them!
Sleep: I'm sleeping maybe 6-8 hours every night on average. My mind races at night, I get caught up in feeling her moving, or I just can't get comfortable until midnight or so.
Movement: Still my favorite thing. She will have really active days and then alternate a pretty quiet day. She is still her father's daughter and more active at night. ;)
Cravings: The sweets cravings are back with a vengeance. I want cake, cupcakes, cookies, and candy. It just takes a little bit and then all is well. I still haven't had any cravings that are too wild or for any random combos. It's more of a "I would really like something sweet. Oh a cookie. Yum. All better," kind of thing.
Changes from last week: More belly growth. More movement. And super emotional.
Best moment of the week: The weather has been really nice on the weekends so just getting out of the house and enjoying the sunshine. Spending time with Josh has become exponentially more important to me so any time I get to just bond with him makes my heart happy. He can get so busy with the business so I really look forward to downtime with him.
Miss anything: Not crying at random commercials or youtube videos of sweet animals just being cute. My thick skin is gone, friends. I will cry if you tell me you stubbed your toe.
Looking forward to: Every little kick and nudge. My heart is so full. I just want to take it all in, thankful for every moment.
Scripture for the week: And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. - Colossians 3:15

Kitty cat decided to nap this week ;)
