Bump Update: Week 22

This is going to be a very anticlimactic post! It has been another week… and nothing has happened! We were iced in most of the weekend, and other than crashing our neighbors (thanks friends!) house for food, we accomplished a whole lot of nothing! (and sorry for the darker than normal pic… we didn’t get one snapped in the 2 minutes of sunshine we had all weekend… so its dark and gloomy) week22edit

Baby’s Size: She weighs about the same as a large mango (a little over a pound)

Baby’s Progress: Baby girl now has a fully developed sense of movement–which should explain why she kicks mostly when I am laying down and super comfy… apparently the rest of the time I just rock her to sleep! Her inner cochlea is fully formed now so her hearing is even better–Reese has been playing lots of guitar for her. And her lungs are continuing to develop which I am sure we will come to fully enjoy here in just a few months!

Weight Gain: This week I gained about 1 lb, so I am up approximately 4 lbs from where I started.  I had a doctor appointment this week and she seemed pleased with where I am.  She even complimented my gradual weight gain.  She obviously doesn’t know about my nightly bluebell ice cream with chocolate chip routine.

Sleep: I keep waking up having rolled over to my back, which my doc says is a no no, so I’m still training myself to sleep on my side constantly, but other than that… I’m not having any issues.

Milestones: We did start our registry this weekend, but it has a ways to go before it is what I would deem finished.  But can we just talk for a second about the stroller section at Buy Buy Baby? I feel like an intelligent human on most days and that area of the store made me want to curl up in the fetal position. Seriously…

Favorite clothing item of the week: Pajama pants.  The ice storm that came through Dallas meant I didn’t leave the house from noon on Friday until we walked next door for dinner; which means I got to lounge around in my PJs all day.  This was all a very welcome change from having worked pretty constantly from Saturday-Tuesday the week before.

Symptoms: Really I haven’t had any this week! I’m gloriously feeling her kick regularly which is super comforting for a worry wart like me, and I don’t have any complaints about this phase of the pregnancy.

Workout: does shoveling ice cream in my mouth count? Let’s be honest… it’s too cold to workout. I’m ready for summer. And yes… I am fully aware I will eat those words at the end of June when I am 9 months pregnant and we are having 100+ degree days.  But I’m willing to be hypocritical about this.
