22 WEEKS






For Valentine's Day this year, I managed to contract the pink of the eye aka pink eye.
So that's why you all get the special treat of seeing me in my glasses.
The last picture above was taken today, and, as you can see, I am pink eye free.

How far along? 22 weeks
Weight gain/loss: None of your business. I'm seeing a difference in my arms this week. I'm kind of bummed because I've been trying to work my guns out a lot. Oh well.

Maternity clothes? Oh yes. Pretty much everything in my closet is maternity with the exception of a few things.

Stretch marks? Probably until the day I die. My fair skinned curse. Lathering on the lotion to not get any new ones.

Sleep? Last night wasn't great. It's kind of hit or miss. I usually wake up around 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to pee. Baby G was kicking me around 3:00 a.m. last night so I couldn't fall back to sleep very quickly.

Best moment this week? Pink eye (insert sarcasm). Valentine's Day was really nice with Caderyn. I made him a yummy breakfast and he got some special treats and then he told me I was his "special girl." This made me smile. Also, I'm noticing baby really likes certain foods, like cereal and pizza. I get big thumps if I'm eating one of these.

Food cravings: Right now...I could really eat like a huge plate of Thai food with noodles and rice all mixed in and a really spicy curry sauce. Lord, that sound so amazingly good right now. I've also been craving Fruit Loops. I can tell I want them because I can smell them even when they aren't around.
Gender: A busy little boy.
Belly button in or out? In. Never has gone out...
Movement? Not as much as last week, but definitely lots of movement. As I type this, he is fluttering under my right side ribs.
What I miss? Pretty much the same as last week: sleeping on my stomach, a good beer or glass of wine on a Friday. Feeling in shape. Oh, and being able to take an Aleve when I have a headache.

What I'm looking forward to: Seeing Baby G's face. Having Jeff home from school and my parents here for the birth and entire summer! Seeing how quickly I can focus on losing the weight. Having my two boys together and bonding. I'm actually not all that worried about Caderyn, I'm worried about me sharing my focus between two boys.

Weekly wisdom: It is hard but it is worth it.

Milestones: Jeff got to feel Baby G kicking. He kept his hand there and just smiled for most of the night. This week Baby G is around 8 inches long and just over a pound of cute little baby fat. Caderyn was a long baby and I think his brother will be long as well.

Oh this is totally *mean* but every time I see Baby G I think Baby Gangsta. Even though I know he won't be but it just keeps occuring every time I read that.
