22 Weeks!!

So it's Friday and today I am 22 Weeks along in the pregnany!! I'm excited! I love Fridays. Here's what our little precious baby is up to:

How big is the baby this month:
Weeks 21-24 (Month 5): Papaya

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

How far along?: 22 Weeks

Total weight gain?: I really don't know...at last weigh in I had gained 10 pounds...I would guessimate that I've gained around 12 pounds so far.
Maternity clothes?: All of my pants still...I'm back to wearing pre-maternity shirts...just becasue I still can..but it won't be much longer until I can't.
Stretch marks?: I think I have one on each hip. But none other than that.
Sleep?: No...and it sucks!! I have no problem going to sleep. I just can't stay asleep.
Best moment this week?: I have two...we got to see our little one on Wednesday again!! SHe's doing good. AND...our bedding came in. Right now, the nursery looks like it just threw up baby bedding but I'm determined to document it all (take pictures).
Movement?: Most days...off and on. She's very active in the evenings. And last night, when mommy couldn't sleep at 4:00, she entertained me. It's still pretty dull but it's there.
Food cravings?: Last weekend it was chili...and it didn't settle too well...and bananas (which I know is a craving, b/c I don't like bananas)
Labor signs?: No...good thing!
Belly button in or out?: it's pretty flat now. It won't be long before I have an outie!
What I miss?: still sushi from Haruno...and sleep
What I'm looking forward to?: Tomorrow we are going to register at Baby News, Target and maybe Babies R' Us. I'm super excited. I'm also looking forward to picking out a name for our daughter! I'm pretty sure we've got one but it's just down to deciding it's "the one".
Danielle and Kelly B. are planning my first shower. It's going to be on November 15th, sometime in the afternoon. It's mainly for my extended family, and Ozark friends. If you are interested in coming, let me know and I will put your name on the list. I need your addresses as well.
Tomorrow, Justin and I will take a belly picture...i'll post it sometime...Kisses-
