How far along? 22 weeks
Size of baby? spaghetti squash, 1 lb, and Pregnant Chicken says she's the length of a Barbie Doll :)
How I'm changing? Getting bigger! My belly button has popped. I'm still dealing with round ligament pains (ouch!!), but overall I feel good and sometimes almost forget I'm actually pregnant, until I look down at my bowling ball. It can't be missed, haha.
Stretch marks? Not yet... not holding my breath on this one. I'm sure they'll be here eventually! I also don't have the so called "linea nigra" line yet, either. Only time will tell...
Maternity clothes? I'm running out of flowy dress options for work, that's for sure. I'm still keeping the same ones in rotation, and I'm sure my office is getting tired of seeing the same 8 dresses over and over, ha. I have one pair of maternity pants for work, but I don't really love the way pants feel right now. Maybe I should look into more dresses to get me through to December.
What I'm eating/not eating? I mentioned before that I've become a taco addict. This baby officially loves Mexican food. I think I could eat it every single day. I am constantly craving tomatoes, black beans, corn and sour cream. So odd.
How I'm sleeping? I sleep great until I wake up around 3 or 4 am... then insomnia likes to hit.
Movement? I feel her every single day now! It's funny because when I do wake up around 3 or 4 in the morning, she is up, too. I can feel her squirming around. At least I have some company :)
Best moment of the week? Last night, Hubs officially felt baby girl moving! It was exciting. She is finally kicking/punching hard enough to be felt from the outside.
