22 Weeks

Thursday, October 16, 2014
How far along? 22 weeks--I feel like this picture really doesn't do my belly justice--maybe it's the color.
Total weight gain/loss: I've gained about 8 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.
Maternity clothes: Yep!  I love them!  I ordered a few fun dresses and tops from Pink Blush Maternity that I love!  I really like how they have stylish maternity clothes that aren't going to break the bank.  I also like how their stuff is different from other stores like Motherhood.  They have good sales.
Best moment this week: Matt felt the baby move on Tuesday night!  It was so sweet to watch his eyes light up and he had the biggest smile on his face.  This little girl has her daddy wrapped around her finger already.
Movement: She is still moving lots and Matt was finally able to feel her move this week!  I've also started being able to see some of her movements from the outside.  Here is a little video of a kick.  You have to watch closely right where by shirt bunches up

Waist diameter: 27.75 inches at waist, 34.25 inches at the widest section of my belly…and growing!
Food cravings/Aversions: Buffalo chicken ANYTHING!  We went to Buffalo Wild Wings with some friends last weekend and it was amazing.  So amazing in fact, that I had to go there for lunch with a friend again yesterday.  I'm making a Buffalo Chicken Casserole next week and I may or may not be looking for an excuse to make Buffalo Chicken Dip...
Labor signs: Thankfully, none.
Belly button in or out?  Still just a little less in than normal.  I'm sure it will be out in no time.
What I miss: NOTHING!  I'm just so grateful for this little miracle growing inside.
What I am looking forward to: I'm excited for a few fun trips we have coming up!  We are going to Boise for the BYU v. Boise State game.  Then we are going to St. George for Halloween weekend. Then we are going back down to St. George in the middle of November to have a fun weekend with James and Steph.
Milestones:  22 weeks!  Matt feeling the baby move was definitely a milestone!
Realization of the week: 
Other things: Matt is so funny.  He keeps saying to me, "Are you sure there is only one in there?"  Ha.  He only says these things because he knows he can get away with it because I love watching my belly grow.  He also tells me all the time how beautiful I am and how much he loves the growing belly.  If he thinks I'm big now…just wait.

We also received little B's crib and mattress this week!  It was fun to get it all set up and now every time we walk into the nursery we say hi to little B as if she is already in the crib.  Little B is just a name we have been calling the baby since we first found out we were pregnant--B is not the baby's first initial.

Also, I normally don't like 3D ultrasounds, but I think we may have a thumb sucker on our hands. ;)
