22 weeks (baby #2)

22 weeks - baby is the size of a Papaya (1 whole pound this week!)

How far along: 22 weeks!
Swelling: No
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep has been good this week!
Best moment of the week:  We had a nice week and of course it was Christmas this weekend! Harper had such a great Christmas - she did so well opening her gifts, staying thank you, and just enjoyed everything. She was so excited to leave milk, cookies and carrots out for Santa and his reindeers, and couldn't believe it when they were gone the next morning! We spent Christmas Eve at my Dad's with family, then Christmas was at our house. We ended up having my parents, brother and his family all over for Christmas dinner, and we all had such great time. My heart is so full and so grateful for this life!
Worst moment of the week:  This was another great week!
Running/Workouts: Workouts have been good this week - still trying to add more weight training with running.
Missing anything: Laying on my back - I officially can no longer sleep on my back. Thankfully I usually seep on my side, but I have found myself waking up on my back and not feeling too hot.
Movement: We've definitely got a little gymnast or breakdancer in my belly. Christmas Eve night was a first for me though - I had just fallen asleep and I was suddenly awoken with a kick/hit straight to the bladder. I made a loud noise as I woke and startled Phil, then immediately had to run to the bathroom. Made us laugh after the fact.
Things that make me queasy/recent cravings: I had a flashback of morning sickness Christmas Even night - driving home from my Dad's I got a little car sick and by the time we got home I had to jump out of the car to throw up. Not fun, but luckily it was short lived.
Energy level:  Energy is good - finding motivation to do much over the Christmas break has been the tough part (like study for boards)
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Thankful
Looking forward to: Spending the week with Harper and family, and celebrating the New Year this weekend! Friday is also FSU's bowl game!!
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: I'm just loving this pregnancy so much! Sad it's already more than halfway over, but enjoying this growing baby every day, feeling her movement and dreaming about what she'll be life when she arrives.
