22 Weeks

OK, so I skipped 21 weeks.  Where did it go??  I really don't know. :)

Work's been pretty busy, it's been crazy around the office.  The right side of my spine (all the muscles in that area from lower back to my shoulder) is completely knotted up, very painful.  They cramp up so I have to change my sitting/laying positions often.  OW!

Kris and I also celebrated our 5 year anniversary this weekend.  It was actually on Saturday, but Kris' 10 year high school reunion was on that day, so we ended up spending it with his old friends/acquaintances.  Sunday morning he made me brunch (homemade hashbrowns!), and gave me a good long massage (which was extremely painful) on my shoulder to ease the pain a little.

And LA Lakers won the NBA Championship this year. :)  There were some really good games!

How far along?  22 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss:  Prolly close to 15 lbs by now?  Going to the doctor this Thursday so we'll find out in a few days.
Maternity clothes?  I'm surviving on maternity tanks and a couple pairs of pants.  I really do need to go get at least 1 pair of maternity slacks and probably 1 pair of maternity jeans.  I do not fit into my old pants anymore!
Stretch marks?  None that's new.  Although I see some suspicious looking white lines (which Kris says he can't see) on my belly.
Sleep:  Sleeping very well.  Except my back has been bothering me...  But besides waking up several times, I do sleep pretty deep and well.
Best moment this week: Laying in my bed with Kris on a weekend morning, with the fan on, with his hand on my belly, feeling the baby move...  Laughing, and "ooh"ing and "ah"ing together. :) I couldn't ask for anything more!
Movement:  Yup, lots of movement.  Sometimes Baby's quiet, so it gets me worried, but most of the time, Baby's pretty good.  Last night, I "saw" Baby's movements for the first time, although I suspect I could have seen it earlier.  Yesterday I actually just sat and watched my belly, and watched it thump.  Very amusing.
Food cravings:  Still fruit.  Big Mac's.  Yesterday it was tangy food. (tangy/sweet BBQ sauce, Pad Thai, Quizno's Honey Bacon Club with tangy/sour sauce...)  Oh, and I have an eggroll obsession. (from Fortune restaurant.  YUM!)
Gender:  The doc might take another peak at Baby this Thursday. :D
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In.  But not by much!
What I miss:  Being able to wear my heels.  The days of wearing heels are definitely numbered at this point.  And I'm starting to have trouble bending completely over to pick stuff up.
What I am looking forward to:  The doctor's appt this Thursday.
Weekly Wisdom:  It's good to have other pregnant friends who can relate to what's going on together!
Milestones:  Kris and I's 5 year anniversary!  With our first child baking, it was extra special to spend it together.
