22 Weeks!

My baby girl is a whole pound!  What a milestone we have reached!  She's growing so beautifully (judging by the size of my growing belly!) and is just perfect.

And before I go any further, I want to thank each and every one of you for your comments on last week's post.  It's so comforting to have this outlet that reaches so many people who can relate to what I am going through.  It makes me feel not alone out there on this journey.  Y'all are wonderful and I am so thankful I've "met" you :)  Smooches!

How Far Along:  22 weeks! 

Maternity Clothes:  Both.  I wore my Bears jersey during the game last week and it was not pretty.  It is basically a belly shirt now and can no longer be worn in public.  Which is depressing.  I need to go shopping.

Sleep:  The hip pain continues but not every night, so I feel blessed.  I've finally started getting up to use the restroom maybe 3-4 times a week.  Guess I couldn't hold out forever!  I've also been getting intense leg cramps when I stretch my legs out...but that has been going on for quite some time.  My solution = stop moving my legs that way.  Problem solved!

Food:   No issues here!

Best Moment of the Week:  Not too much happened this week.  Which is a huge blessing because the next two weeks are hectic to say the least.

What I'm Looking Forward to:   In one week we have our next ultrasound and hopefully get to see our daughter's beautiful face this time!  AND, after that we are having a 3D ultrasound!  I am thrilled to be able to do this.  It's actually kind of a cool story but I'll save that for next week.  On another note, we get to do a walk through of the house on Monday!!  It's almost done and I cannot wait to see what it looks like with actual walls this time!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!  Ours will likely be spent watching copious amounts of football and shopping for a refrigerator!  Yippee!

You look great! I've started getting the hip pain while I sleep this week, have you found a good way to sleep to make this happen less? It is definitely no fun!

Glad to hear you're doing well. My Dad is from Chicago so I grew up as huge Bears fan! Maybe you can layer the jersey over some tank tops?
