Life has been absolutely crazy. So here is my update for the last 3 (sorry!) weeks.
The biggest news of all is that we found out that we’re having a little BOY! Our ultrasound was 9/23 and I was almost 21 weeks. Here are the pictures:
How far along: 22 weeks
How big is baby: About 11 inches? I’m super excited that the doctor said after my ultrasound that we should be on track to have an average sized baby. I was huuuuuuge. Like over 10 lbs and 24 inches long huge. Average sounds great to me!
How I’m feeling: Sleepy, excited, heavy.
Weight: Still haven’t gained much weight. I’m guessing that I’ve gained 5 to 6 lbs during this pregnancy. Totally just eating whatever I feel like until further notice. Hello cupcakes.
How I’m changing: I’m looking more and more pregnant all the time. I feel like my belly button is getting more shallow also. Weird.
What I miss: Caffeine!
Symptoms: I’ve been getting some lower back aches. My biggest symptom is definitely moodiness right now. I could cry over anything!
Cravings: Lately, I’ve been craving a lot of sweets!
What I’m NOT craving: BBQ. Gag me.
Movement: Yes! I have even seen a couple from the outside. Kirby still hasn’t felt anything yet, though.
What I’m looking forward to: My baby shower is a month from today. We registered for gifts over the past weekend. Not trying to sound greedy here, but I think it will be so exciting to be able to start really getting ready for baby. Also, I’m really excited to see friends and family!
And now for some bump photos:
I think I look the most pregnant in the 20 week picture! It must be the clothes.
