How Far Along? 22 weeks, 5 days

Baby is the size of:a papaya   (according to the bump)

Total Weight Gain: 15 pounds

The Bump: Round and low! My girls used to sit right up under my ribs. This little boy seems so much lower

Food Cravings: Fruit, ice cream and English muffins with peanut butter. I’m hungry ALL the time!! I fill up on healthy foods most of the time (besides ice cream) and I can’t get full.

Symptoms: heart burn already!

Sleep:  Sleeping has been great! I’m out as soon as my head hits the pillow. I am in desperate need of new pillows though. I wake up sore every morning.

What I miss: Energy. I have none! I thought the second trimester was supposed to be the easiest. I’m tired ALL the time!

Names: Yes! And went into slight panic mode (shaking and almost vomiting, calling Jon in a panic at work) when I found out that a close friend was thinking of the same name for her baby boy. Seriously, I was going to offer to buy the name this morning. She laughed and told me it was all mine. Another good friend of hers is also considering the name. I can’t help it! I am SOOOO in love with this name and already call him by it. It’s been 6 hours and my heart rate has finally returned to normal.

Gender: Boy!

Movement: Yes and it never gets old! He’s been showing off and kicking for Jon and the girls lately too 🙂

Maternity Clothes: Yes! Bought some new jeans that are super comfy!

Labor Signs: No but I have braxton hicks occasionally

Best moment of the week: Seeing the baby at my ultrasound last Friday. He’s getting so big!

What I’m excited about and looking forward to: hearing the baby’s heartbeat on Friday morning

Purchases: more socks, a couple of Burt’s Bees outfits and some onesies

Baby’s room: I’m going with a woodland theme. Bought the bedding from Pottery Barn Baby.
