A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
Welp, I am definitely feeling the full effects of pregnancy, heartburn, hot flashes and hunger pangs. I am one big swollen mess! It is not really a glamorous job, but someone has to do it. Did I mention it is worth every minute?
How Far Along: 22 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 18 pounds and I am still hungry!
Food Cravings: Everything Bagels! I guess if I can’t have stinky cheeses, bagels are the next best thing.
What I Miss: Wearing closed toed shoes. I am sticking to sandals for now, but I have a strong suspicion that my feet might have increased a size.
Symptoms: My stomach will not stop growling. Even in the middle of the night, I wake up starving.
Baby Movement: The movement is really sporadic, except when I am laying down at night. I usually do not notice it unless I am totally still, but it is the coolest feeling ever!
Maternity Attire: Slowly but surely I am adding some strange things to my attire. Shorts are all I can stand in this Oklahoma heat, but the strange tummy panel does not help to cool me off.
Hurl Factor: Spicy foods are off the table, including my beloved Chipotle. This is more of a heat than hurl factor, but the heartburn is just not worth it.
Annoyances: I am hot all the time! The 100+ degree weather is not helping. Taking a page from Father of the Bride Part II, I am confining myself to the indoor air conditioning.
Weekly Highlight: Finalizing my nursery plans and starting to order items! I cannot wait to get the Rock Star prints I ordered from Etsy in the mail this week.
