22 Weeks

22 Weeks: Baby O2 is the size of a spaghetti squash.  
He/she weighs almost 1 whole pound and is 11 inches long!  This week baby is actually beginning to look like a newborn with eyelids and eyebrows becoming more distinct, and tiny tooth buds forming. The eyes have formed but there is no pigment in the irises yet.

How far along? 22 Weeks
Total weight gain? Up 9 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Not yet!  
Stretch marks? Nope- lathering on my cocoa butter.
Sleep? Slept great other than a couple nights where a cold would wake me up with runny nose, coughing fits, etc. I'm also thinking that the body pillow is probably going to be brought back to bed in the very near future.  Sorry Trent and puppies!
Best moment this week? Spending the weekend in KC for a wonderful time at another Great Bend wedding!  We also ran some errands- the coolest one of all was checking out the new Ikea store for the first time.  Holy moly that place is awesome. We even made our first nursery purchases- a rug we loved from Ikea and then picked up the paint from Home Depot.
Miss anything? Wedding celebrating like I normally do- pregnant and drinking water/tea just wasn't quite the same!  
Movement? Lots of movement- the most at night and getting stronger too.  Trent can almost feel all the ones that I do.
Food cravings? Nope, I'm eating pretty normal.  Fall food sounds good though- chili, taco soup, cinnamon rolls, etc.  I don't think it's the pregnancy though just the time of the year.
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing
Gender? 126ish days and then we'll know :)
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? The every growing belly and that's about it.
Belly button in or out? Still in.  However, we noticed this week that it looks and feels much shallower than normal.
Wedding rings on or off? Off and at the jewelers still...
Happy or moody? Not exactly moody... but with both me and Cole getting sick again, new jobs, a million house projects to do, unpacking of boxes still, and being out of town again... I did feel kind of stressed this week.  No meltdown yet which has to be a good sign :)  I just need one weekend at home and a few good night's sleep and I should be back to normal!  
Looking forward to? Being home for a change this weekend- hallelujah we need it!  Trent also plans to start on the nursery this week.  On the agenda: move all the random stuff that got put there in the move, tear down the trim, prime over all the red paint, and go pick up the barnwood.  Feels good to finally say we are moving towards some nursery projects!
Daddy moment?  Thank you God for a husband that likes to shop and do all these house projects for us! Trent also had a big exciting week with his shop getting the drywall finished up, priming the shop for paint, and then buying a riding lawn mower.  Boys and their toys :)
Big Brother Cole moment: Cole had the BEST time at Rondeau's wedding this weekend, and he was such a good boy.  We are so thankful to have a kid that goes with the flow and absolutely loves being around people.  Cole doesn't know a stranger and made friends/flirted anywhere he went.  This age is so much fun!
