For example, I just had to have this CUTE penguin hat!
The main question we have been asked since we found out baby is a girl, is "What are you going to name her?" Everyone wants to know, but we have decided not to tell anyone until our bundle of joy is born. We are both very excited about the name and think it is perfect. So I am sorry, but everyone will have to wait for another few months.
One of the greatest parts for us about being pregnant and knowing the gender, is just how excited our family has been. This little girl is already loved so very much and I enjoy seeing how happy everyone gets when we talk about her.
The big "new" thing since the last update is our baby girl is a wiggle worm! I can now tell when she is asleep and awake. The best part is she starts by pressing against my belly like she is stretching then the moving begins! Josh got to feel her for the first time last night. We were laying on the couch and he asked if she was awake, I told him I didn't think so because I hadn't felt her in a little while. So he started talking to her. It took no time at all for her to start moving like crazy, I have never felt her move so much. We were asking her to move for Daddy because he hadn't felt her yet and I could tell she was really trying. It took a little while for Josh to feel her but then she went all for it with four big kicks right where his fingers were pressing against my stomach. We both were very excited! He finally got to feel his baby girl move. It was something I don't think we will ever forget.
How far along? 22 Weeks and 3 Days
Total weight gain/loss: According to my last Dr appointment I have gained a total of 2 pounds.
Maternity clothes? I now have a couple actual maternity shirts but can still fit comfortably in most of my other shirts. As far as jeans, there is no way I'm fitting in my pre-pregnancy jeans so I just bought 2 pairs of maternity jeans (both for $5!) and I love them!
Stretch marks? Not even a little bit!
Sleep: I have good nights and bad, I sleep well when I'm asleep, but tend to have a hard time falling back asleep after I get up in the middle of the night.
Best moment this week: Yesterday! Kim and I went shopping for baby while all the boys played air-soft. Then later that night Josh felt her move!
Have you told family and friends: Yup, but not the name ;)
Miss Anything? I honestly can't think of anything right now, I'm just very much enjoying our baby girl!
Movement: Of yes! And I love every moment of it! Specially now that Josh can enjoy it with me!
Food cravings: Well, not so much cravings but things I can't get enough of are corn dogs with mustard, McDonald's fries, bananas, and orange juice with ginger ale.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still can't do deli meat, even walking into Subway makes me feel uneasy.
Have you started to show yet: Oh ya. I even have had some strangers ask me which I think is quite brave of them.
Gender prediction: Baby Girl!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Very happy!
Anything new? Josh felt her and we are now working on the nursery!
Weekly Wisdom: Take more naps, enough them while I can!
Looking forward to: Appointment next week to hear her heartbeat and of course the Christmas season!
