This pregnancy seems to be going fast, I sure hope the next 17+ weeks goes fast too!

Maternity clothes? Yep, pretty much all I can wear these days.
Stretch marks? None from pregnancy
Weight Gain? I am still down -1 from my pre-pregnancy weight (I had lost about 15 lbs in the first trimester) but I’m steadily gaining
Sleep:  Sleeping more soundly but still having to get up to use the bathroom at least 2-3 times a night
Best moment this week:  Getting unexpected gifts from friends, feeling baby move all the time and the 22 week ultrasound showing very healthy baby boy
Miss Anything? Nope!
Movement: I feel him all the time! Certain foods or drinks really get him kicking up a storm.  It is very startling when I get a kick to the gut
Food cravings: Lemonade, chocolate chip cookies
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope, feeling good
Gender: BOY!!!!
Labor Signs: That is a long way off!
Other Aches and pains?My back and hips are starting to hurt
Belly Button in or out?  Innie but I can tell it is changing
Rings on or off? On
Mood:  Happy
Looking forward to:  Getting started on the nursery, buying boy stuff

How your baby’s growing:

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he’s even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment.

If you could see inside your womb, you’d be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he’ll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

22 weeks
