22 Weeks!


Size of Baby:  According to Baby Center, little man is about the length of a spaghetti squash and is just over a pound. Right now he's even working on forming tiny tooth buds beneath his gum! 

Symptoms: - Still just the rib and back pain. It's at least gotten better when I sleep, but it's rather constant during the day at work.  I have taken a pillow to put in my work chair, but it's not working. If you have any suggestions on things to try I would definitely appreciate it!

 Cravings/Aversions: - Still enjoying fruit... but other than that no major cravings!

Maternity Clothes: - Mixing it up with both.  I did have to upgrade to one of Cody's t-shirts this weekend, which wasn't that fun... mainly because he doesn't have cute t-shirts like I do :)

 Sleep: - Sleeping pretty good, when one rascal dog isn't bothering me. Dude woke me up at 5:00 am today for a drink and then whined till my alarm when off to get out of bed at 6:38. Mama was not happy!

 Highlights Of This Week: 
 - I had a check up yesterday and actually have a tentative c-section date scheduled: AUGUST 27th! It's less than a week before my actual due date, but hearing August makes it sound so much closer than September!  Ideally, August 28th would be a better delivery day {aka MY BIRTHDAY!} but I thought I would make that request to the dr. once the day is closer. {dream big, right?} There is also a chance that I can still deliver naturally, but at least for now, it's looking like the fibroid could keep that from happening. 

- I had a check up yesterday and  braved asking my doctor how my weight gain was. Nothing will make a pregnant lady cry faster than the sweet words: "You're doing great!" and "You're not at all on track to gain 75 lbs this pregnancy!"  So maybe I celebrated the news by eating :) 

 - I ordered our crib! It won't actually be in till June 15th, but it's nice to know it will eventually be on it's way to us!

- On Sunday we helped with We Are The Sermon at our church. While it was a bittersweet day as there was a freak accident in which one of our friends was majorly hurt, {a metal basketball backboard landed on his ankle, fractured his fibula and tore his achilles, it was awful} it was also a sweet day to be serving with Cody and to think about the type of man I hope our Griffin will grow up to be. 

 Funniest Dream Of This Week: - I dreamed that some friends of Cody's were renting out their apartment and we went to go look at it to see if Josh and Sarah would want to move there. I took lots of pictures with an old school film camera, only to realize that I hadn't been winding it up after it shot and none of the photos were going to turn out. As we were leaving the house, all I could think was, "Josh and Sarah have such a nice house that they bought.... why are they thinking about renting now?!" 

Looking forward to: - The weekend! Hoping we'll get some more accomplished in the nursery along with plenty of down time. Who knows, Cody may even talk me into going to see The Avengers! :)

  1. Congrats on the little boy! Boys are the best (I have two of them). You might want to mention your desire for a Aug 28 c-section to your dr at your next visit. The OR gets books pretty quick, and it would be terrible to lose your spot. If your labor does end up going the surgical route, don't worry too much. It's very surreal, and really not that bad. Good luck!
