22 Weeks!

Welcome to week 22! Please enjoy my last photograph as I try my best Zoolander face. If we must be honest here, I kind of hate how my belly is this strange square shape. In person it doesn't really look all that square, but it photographs just oddly. I hope it gets more round so I can have one of those cute basketball (or beachball really) bellies. :-(

How far along?: 22 Weeks
Total weight gain: Haven't weighed in but I'm pretty sure it's around 12-13 lbs.
How big is baby?: Papaya sized!
Maternity clothes?: Yes indeed.
Stretch marks?: Teensy ones :-/
Sleep?: Not the best anymore. I wrestle with the snoogle. Some nights it's a godsend, others it's a curse!
Best moment this week?: An adorable Indian couple stopping us in Target to congratulate us and ask about 24512 questions about my pregnancy. Odd, yet sweet at the same time.
Movement?: Tons.
Food cravings?: The sweet tooth has officially kicked in. Oopsie!
Gender? Girl
Labor signs?: No thank you.
Belly button in or out?: Shallow innie.
What I miss: Being able to enjoy sneezing without the fear of peeing a little.
What I'm looking forward to: I'm looking forward to making it to V-day (viability day) in two more weeks, though I pray she stays cooking in there about 16-18 more weeks (zomg that's starting to sound not too far away!)
Milestone: I don't know if I've achieved any this week. I think I see a linea nigra forming... does that count? I don't know if I should keep doing these surveys, my answers hardly change haha.

Oh! My nails are still growing so long! I really don't think I've ever had them this long naturally without one of them breaking... And today, naturally my left thumbnail breaks (don't know how, they're freaking strong too) so I think I'm going to cut them finally. Also notice how my fingers are starting to swell. Yummy.

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

It's so fun reading your blog because we are at almost the exact same stage of pregnancy. It's nice being able to read about someone going through all the same symptoms I am so that I don't feel like such a freak!

Love the blog and just wanted to let you know!
