22 weeks!

Change of scenery for Christmastime! :)

How far along: 22 weeks

Size of baby: According to thebump.com Jaqs is the size of a papaya! She's about 11 inches long and nearly one whole pound! What a big girl.

Total weight gain: Almost 8 pounds. I feel like I've gotten a lot bigger in the last couple weeks. Especially when I see pictures of myself...whoa.

Gender: Baby girl!

Movement: Yes, movements are becoming more consistent, and I love it. I read that she's sleeping about 12-14 hours a day, and I'm starting to notice that pattern. I can't wait for Rob to be able to feel her too.

Sleep: Still good. Thankfully her rolling around isn't keeping me awake just yet ;)

What I miss: Nothing really. Although, it will be nice when I don't have to google everything I do to make sure I'm not doing something harmful! Ha, for example, I found out this week I'm not supposed to use my OxyLight...dang it!

Cravings: I've been snacking on g-free pretzels with peanut butter all the time. I'm also loving cereal, mandarin oranges, and LOTS of milk! Not all at once, by the way.... ;)

Symptoms: Just some stretching/growing pains at times but that's really it. This part of pregnancy rocks!

Maternity clothes: I have one pair of maternity jeans, but I'm still working with the belly band for all my work pants. Hoping that will get me through the whole 9 months! Tops are mostly my regular ones, but I do have a few maternity tops as well.

Best moment this week: I had an appointment yesterday, so hearing her sweet little heartbeat is always amazing! We are growing right on track. I also scheduled the rest of my appointments for the remainder of this pregnancy...that's nuts! I only have one more monthly appointment in January, then we go to every 2 weeks. WOW! Time is really going to fly now. Baby girl's crib came in today, I can't wait to put it together this weekend and start arranging her room! Now if only we I could pick out fabric for her bedding...

I still can't believe we're going to be parents! Babe, when did we get old enough for this?!

Katie! This is so fun! Jaqueline Kate is GROWING!...so exciting! Oh, and I love her name and all that you wrote. You and Rob are so sweet and will be wonderful parents! So thankful I get the honor of watching.

I thank God for this journey He has taking you on and for the blessing of a precious little girl.There is much fun to be had... but in the meantime enjoy each day. It will be a long time before it's just you and Rob again.

Christmas Blessings!

Yay! The bump is growing!

I am so surprised you like the Bella Band so much. I think it's really uncomfortable! I tried it for the first time this week and I really didn't like it. Maybe I'm wearing it wrong hah!
