How far along? 22 weeks ... the progression from cantaloupe, to banana, to papaya does not seem logical to me. But whatever.
Total inches gained: 10 whopping inches! One inch up from last week.
Maternity clothes? All the time. I had trouble determining what to wear to the wedding we went to on Saturday. I ended up wearing a non maternity dress that sort of fit and the FD thought it looked good. I had to pin it and staple it though. That's never good. I ended up changing between the ceremony and reception into black dress pants and a fancy blouse - I felt much more comfortable (and warmer) for the evening!
Sleep: So good!
Aversions: None. All has been well on the food front lately.
Best moment this week: On Monday night, the Fabulous Dude felt the baby move! I had started to feel lots of kicking over the weekend, both from the inside and with my hand on the tum tum. He was out Monday evening and I went to bed to read around 9:15 and felt some crazy Ninja kicking for about an hour. By the time he got home it had really settled down and I told him I wished he had been home so he could have felt it. He put his hand on my tummy and we poked around and waited a bit and then I finally felt 5 small kicks but I knew they weren't strong enough for him to feel. Then, I felt a big one and he looked up at me and said he felt it! It hasn't happened again since but it was a cool, cool moment.
Movement: See above. I've been feeling a LOT more kicking, mostly in the evening or when I am laying down and really still. Also, so far I've only felt kicks on the left hand side of my tummy. None in the middle or on the right. I guess he just likes to camp out on my left side?
Gender: Who knows? I have been flipping back and forth between saying he and she all week.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? OUT! And it just keeps coming out more.
What I miss: Being able to bend down normally and effortlessly, without having to squat and let out the occasional grunt.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Feeling the ninja kicks more frequently throughout the day.
Weekly Wisdom: Record what's going on in your pregnancy! These are things you don't want to forget in the years to come.
Milestones: I had my first pregnancy sniss on the weekend. Maybe that's not a milestone I should be proud of! I was getting something from the fridge, sneezed, and crossed my legs but not in time! I guess it's time to up the kegels :) Also I am on week #2 of the "great diclectin wean" of 2010. I have gone from 3 pills a day, to 2 a day and now to just 1 a day. Hopefully by this time next week, I will be down to 0 pills a day!
