Pregnancy Update - 22 weeks!

This is a day late & short because I'm on vacation and just relaxing... :) Hope you are having a great week!

Baby is the size of: a spaghetti squash

Symptoms: Same as last week

Maternity clothes? I bought a couple of new little things last week. It's amazing how new clothes can make you feel better. (pregnant or not!)

Sleep: I pretty much have the sleep habits of a college student. Long nap when the girls nap, and go to bed way too late. (And this is before we got here to the beach.) I say that I should change my habits, but they pretty much rock right now. haha!

Fun moment(s) this past week: We had our first day at the beach yesterday. The morning was awesome; built sandcastles with the girls. Lots of naps, cuddles, night walks with my little brown berries.

Movement: Night and the morning is best, but I can feel her some during the day, too. I try to stay calm when I don't feel her when I purposely am staying still to do so. It's hard not to worry about that all the time. So I take every kick and spin as a sign that Hallie is happy in there and I actually smile everytime I feel her.

Food cravings: No big cravings. But that Mint Chocolate Klondike Bar I just ate was pretty awesome. I AM on vacation :)

Gender & Name: GirlHallie!! Story here.

Weight gained: 7 lbs. Ain't too bad, but tell me why I put this category in there again???

Belly Button in or out? no change. I may take this category out. I mean, do you really care?? haha! I don't!

What I am looking forward to: the rest of our week at the beach! Getting my white belly tan. I've been sporting a tankini all summer until now. I figure the beach is a good place to break the two pieces out. I don't know anyone. :) And... it's empty here! I guess since school has started back and stuff, we practically have the beach to ourselves!

Reflections on the past week: I have found myself a bit more concerned about wanting to feel Hallie kick at least at night and morning. I don't like getting up in the morning or going to sleep until I have felt her recently.  Eager to learn more about her and see her again at our next ultrasound Monday.

when i feel Blitzen kick I think of you so often and wondered how much you get to feel Hallie! I'm SURE those little reminders that she's growing and moving around are SUCH a blessing for you!!! enjoy the beach!
