It was business as usual around here with nothing too exciting going on. Lots of work, lots of chilling, lots of being weirded out by pregnancy symptoms. As promised, I'm taking a page out of my rad homie Cris from Kiss My Tulle's book (who took a page from Little Baby Garvin) and will do my damndest to post weekly updates ... because someone out there might give a shit and want to know what's going on with this whole thing. And now, I've drafted the help of my business partner from Little Wedding Extras so y'all aren't just stuck with my own mirror selfies.
How far along? 22 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I dunno. Haven't stepped on a scale in a hot minute, but since i did bake a batch of cookies this week, I'd imagine there's a little extra fluff there.
Maternity clothes? I finally picked up some nursing / maternity bras and a new tank top from Target, in addition to ordering a maternity swimsuit from Kohl's. So, yeah, you could say that.
Stretch marks? Not yet, but I know they're coming.
Sleep: It's been a little erratic this week, with pee breaks coming at around 2:30 a.m. and thunderstorms waking me up. I've had a hard time falling back asleep most nights, and don't do so until about 4:30, but this morning I didn't have to pee until about 5:50, which was a total victory!
Best moment this week: I had a huge craving for buffalo wings, and it was totally satiated last night, which was awesome.
Miss Anything? My hips not hurting. Even though I use my Snoogle, which I LOVE, I'm still painin' a bit almost every night.
Movement: Maybe? I couldn't tell if it was gas from the wings and burger or #babyth
Food cravings: Buffalo wings and Topo Chico.
Anything making you queasy or sick: It's hard to tell -- nausea strikes when I least expect it.
Gender: Still a dude.
Labor Signs: Hell no. Thank goodness.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: Getting married! We set a date and scheduled with the JP.
We got the first non-nursery present for #babything this week, and I'm still totally gushing over how cute these little moccasins are, Thanks again, Cris! We're also attending a friend's baby shower this weekend, which I'm pretty excited about because a) she's rad and b) I get to hang out with another knocked-up chick and all of our friends simultaneously, which doesn't happen that often. She's also going to be the recipient of my favorite children's book, and I'm really happy and proud that I get to pass on my love for that book to her little #hashtag.
