>> Tuesday, October 29, 2013 – Baby H
How far along: 22 weeks
|And because I think it looks smaller clothed...|
According to the Bump, Baby is the size of a papaya- 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces (is that not a HUGE weight range..?)
at 22 weeks:
Weight gain/loss: Gain- too much probably. The doctor hasn't said anything ever and I am trying to still be somewhat active and eat well 80% of the time... After like 10 years of counting calories it is just really hard to see the scale keep going up no matter what. I am working on coming to terms with it, knowing there is nothing I can do about it.
Stretch marks/belly button: No stretch marks and still an innie. My belly is really itchy though- I don't know if it is the winter weather drying things out, or just everything stretching
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: No cravings, still not eating hummus. I have been a lot better the last couple of weeks about cooking real suppers.
What I'm loving: The baby room rug came in and I got the fabric in the mail for the crib skirt, curtains and crib rail protector. Now to just get my act together and actually sew them!
Symptoms: Um.. feeling something move in my stomach region?
What I'm looking forward to: Seeing the house progress! Everything is happening and so quickly now!
Best moment of the week: When we found out how quickly the excavator and concrete guy were able to come out to the house! Oh- and volunteering at the Marine Corp Marathon on Sunday. I was supposed to run, but I ended up growing a parasite instead. I am deferred to run next year and seeing the runners is such an inspiration and I can't wait to begin training again! Baby related- I feel like everything is status quo for now.
How I'm feeling: Fine. Good. Normal.
