Week 22

Today is the start of week 22. We have an ultrasound this afternoon to measure the baby and see how she's growing. Hopefully she'll be cooperating this time and I'll be able to post some great pictures tonight!

Here is what the baby is up to this week according to
At 11 inches and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her eyes have formed, but her irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her body and the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside her belly, her pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

How far along? 22 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: + 9.5 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yes and loving them!

Sleep: Waking up a couple times a night and always thirsty...

Best moment this week: Mike felt the baby move on Saturday morning!

Movement: Her movement has increased a lot this week. She is moving around a lot more and very distinctly. Some of her kicks are getting strong enough to feel from the outside. :) When Mike and I play music on my iPhone for her, she really starts to dance around! It is the coolest thing!

Food cravings:
Fountain Root Beer... and Cara Cara oranges.... not together though.

Gender: GIRL

Labor Signs: Not yet. :)

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: I actually really enjoy being pregnant! :)

What I am looking forward to: Seeing the baby today during the ultrasound. I also am looking forward to the baby's movement to increase still. I love feeling her kick!

Milestones: Mike being able to feel the baby move! :) She's always moved towards his hand when he puts it on my belly at night, but now he's starting to feel her too!

Nursery Update: Here is what we are modeling our nursery around (Daisy Garden from Pottery Barn Kids):
