Thankful & 22 weeks

Checking in....we had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hope you did to! Lots to be thankful for this year, especially a healthy and growing baby.

I haven't downloaded my t'giving pics but here is a picture John snapped of Finn at our family's 50 year old cabin. I love pretty much everything about this picture. It sums up our dog and the place. 


As for bambino, all is well. People in our office building are now starting to notice the belly and it's funny to see their reaction.

22 weeks -- 18 to go! 

I snapped this picture within a day of each other. It's interesting to see how differently it looks like i'm carrying the bump between these pics.

How far along? Actually 23 weeks today, but this is based off of 22.
Baby Size: 1 LB! so hard to believe.
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure, i'm only checking the scale at the doc but I would guess 12-15 lbs?
Maternity clothes? Finally purchased my first pair of jeans and jeggings. OH MY! Why I waited so long who in the hell knows?! These things are amazing (& so necessary).
Stretch marks? Not yet. I'm scared.
Sleep: Sleeping ok. Waking up once a night for bathroom and once around 5am to put pillow between legs. That does wonders as well.
Best moment this week: Spending Thanksgiving with family. My sister finally seeing the growing babe.
Miss Anything? Missed the vino at Thanksgiving but made up for it with pecan pie and all the fixins'.
Movement: Yes! It's amazing. The baby moves when i'm lying down at night in our bed reading or watching tv. It's a good reminder to slow down and take in this exciting time.
Food cravings: Still Sweet Tea. Everyday. And I look forward to my morning cereal (currently life with banana on top) but that isn't out of the norm. 
Food aversions: Sort of. Still no interest in coffee or meat, except I did indulge in Turkey.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No but I can smell B.O. and jersey shore perfume a mile a way.
Have you started to show yet: It's all out there! Especially as the day goes on. Fun to see a real, actual bump.
