22 Weeks!

YAY! I'm slowly gettin' up there guys!

I'm 22 weeks on Cinco De Mayo. I think I'll celebrate by eating. Mexican. And drinking virgin margaritas. Sound good? Ok then.

I'm feeling pretty uninspired on what I should write about since things have been pretty uneventful, so I guess we'll just jump into the survey!

How far along?: 22 weeks
How big is baby?: Approx. the size of a papaya & supposedly she stays that size until I'm 24 weeks? Ok.
Weight gain?: As of this morning, I was up .5lb from last week. So, 15.5lbs total. But I just ate Chick fil-A for breakfast, so I'm probably up another 2lbs from that.
Stretch Marks?: Nooooooo.
Maternity Clothes?: All pants. And my tank tops are maternity-which is pretty much all I wear.
Sleep?: No major complaints. Once Claire settles down for the night, I fall asleep pretty easily.
Best moment this week?: Getting going on the nursery takes the cake. Wait, that was last week. Oh well.
Food cravings?: Honestly? Salad. I know. My mouth just dropped too.
Gender?: A wiggly sassy girl
Movement?: Oh ya. This morning I had my hand on my stomach in bed & she kicked it so hard that it woke me up. But it's weird because the dr. said I have an anterior placenta & won't be feeling movement very easily. That's a load of crap. I feel her all. the. time.
What I miss?: Not feeling like I'm going to pass out 3x a day. Not peeing 5803932x a day.
Belly Button?: Is ugly.
What I'm looking forward to?: Getting my hair done on Saturday!! It looks AWFUL. I look like a shaggy dog with roots.
Milestone?: Having the nursery actually look like a nursery & getting stranger comments everyday!

Here I am in my 22wk glory.

so I did to. Get it? 22 weeks? I'm so funny. ::crickets::
