How far along: 22 weeks
Baby size: About 11 inches from head to toe & over a full pound!
Sleep: Sleep was getting better. I was almost getting through the night without getting up. But the past week or so, I have found myself getting up again with an urgent need to use the restroom. Last night I told Billy (who sadly awoke because of my getting out of bed) that I feel like Baby Liam is clapping his hands around my bladder. Lovely, right?
Food cravings/aversions: I craved chili the other night, so I made it. And cheese... my goodness. I want lots and lots of cheddar cheese.
Pregnancy Symptoms: I get breathless when I try to read out loud. My hips are pretty sore, and I think I can literally feel my bones spreading. Oh, and I have this odd thing around my waist that keeps growing...
What I miss: The ability to be a bit more active. We were moving things around in our house the other night (thanks to the nesting instinct of yours truly), and I couldn't do as much as I wanted. And when I did try to do something, I found that I was off-center and off-balance.
What I'm looking forward to: Everything! Though I am uncomfortable already, I am really enjoying this time of pregnancy. I finally look pregnant, and I only get nauseated in the mornings or when I am starving. I feel very blessed.
Milestones: I'm over halfway pregnant now! That feels like a huge hurdle!
Best moment this week: Waking up to Liam moving. This happens often, but it always makes me smile.
