22 Weeks

22 weeks already! I really can't believe how fast time is flying.

Our little tree this year :) We still haven't gotten around to putting ornaments on it :/

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along: 22 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +8 pounds total

Maternity Clothes: The shirt I'm wearing in that picture is the first maternity shirt I've worn. I LOVE it! I also got a belly band so I can wear my old jeans that don't button anymore and it holds them up and in place. I have a feeling we'll be buying a lot more maternity shirts in the near future :) Happy birthday and Merry Christmas to me!

Best Moment this Week: Starting to look REALLY pregnant no matter what I'm wearing :) 

Gender: Girl! Little Addie :)

Movement: Depends on the day. Some days I feel her ALL day long. The other night I was having a really restless night and I swore every time I was tossing and turning, so was Adelyn. Some days I only feel her a few times. I read around week 28 is when you should start to feel consistent movement and I can't wait!

Food Cravings: Eh. Whatever sounds good in the moment.

Food aversions: Nothing new. This week I've actually been feeling AMAZING so I even got a Dr. Pepper one day and kept it down! I felt kind of sick the whole night though so I probably won't be trying that again anytime soon.

Symptoms/Changes: This week I've been waking up not feeling nauseous and I'm able to get out of bed and get my own breakfast without getting sick! Yay! I've also had a lot of energy. Of course I've been going non-stop since Monday and today I'm starting to feel all yucky and achy and my head is I'm taking it easy again today. 2 nights ago I was having horrible cramping around my belly button and then later that night up under my ribs. I woke up yesterday and my belly had moved up a considerable amount. It's down a little bit again today. I'm ready for it to start growing OUT and not moving up and down my torso...there's not enough room in me for that!

Sleep: Tossing and turning and waking up a LOT. Just preparing me for life after April I guess!

What I am looking forward to: Still waiting for Jake to feel her kick.  I'll feel her once and then put my hand on my stomach just to make sure and I'll feel her kick another time on my hand so I'll tell Jake to put his hand on my stomach and then she stops moving. He's ready to feel you move, Adelyn!
