22 weeks with Griffin


*How far along?: 22 weeks
*Total weight gain?: 11lbs
*How big is baby?: a spaghetti squash...that seems big!
*Sex: BOY:)
*Maternity clothes: Yes. Is this really a necessary survey question? It's pretty obvious!
*Stretch marks: Nope. fingers crossed!
*Sleep: Some nights it's fine, other nights it's bad. Just depends! At least I'm not up ALL night though!
*Symptoms: My feet are hurting when I've been standing & walking too much. I get sore when I sit in the same position for a long time...this means our long beach drive in May will be fun, right? Also, my hips are hurting in the middle of the night if I have slept on one side too long. Shouldn't all of this be happening LATER in the pregnancy?!
*Best moment this week: Griffin decided to move!
*Movement: Yes! finally! My placenta is in the front this time which is why I have not been able to feel anything. I starting feeling little jabs earlier in the week. He moves a lot more at night than during the day...uh oh!
*Food cravings: ice cream...it's hot outside!
 *Labor signs: hopefully not anytime soon!
*Belly button in or out: in
  *What I miss: my energy & regular pants:)
*What I'm looking forward to: we picked out the paint for G's new room so I am ready to get started...probably not until after Easter!

OK, definitely teared up at your 'big moment' for the week! Talk about one of the best feelings EVER! So exciting!! Oh, and not sure if you used one last time, but the belly/ back brace came in really handy for me when my hips started bothering me. It was so great, I didn't go a day without it, or I would be in pain the next. Your Doc can give you a script for it. Just a thought! :)

You have only gained 11 lbs, that's tiny! No way will you start looking like J-Simp. How far along is she anyway? She looks like she's about 72 weeks pregnant. :)
