How many weeks? I am 22 weeks! This week is a big milestone for me. This is now the longest I’ve ever been pregnant before! I am thrilled to be this far along without any complications in sight!
How am I feeling? I am feeling way better now that the nasty virus is out of my house! I was so out of it at my last Peri appointment, as I was coming down with my sickness, that i didn’t really get a chance to talk to my doc about the fact that my cervix had shortened 1/2 cm in just 2 weeks. It’s still a good size (3.7cm), but I’m still concerned. I hope bed rest is not in my near future, BUT I will absolutely do it without any hesitation to avoid pre-term labor.
Doctor’s Appointment? Not this week.
Weight Gain? 10 pounds
Maternity Clothes - I splurged last week on some really nice jeans from Pea in a Pod. The sales person brought in about 15 pairs of jeans for me to try on. I was exhausted after trying them all on! I ended up going with Mavi jeans. I had not heard of them before, but they fit the best. They remind me of my favorite pre-pregnancy jeans. They hold their shape really well and are long! They have a 32” inseam, which I love! Chances are, if you see me I’ll be wearing them. I wear them ever chance I get because they are so comfy and I want to get as much use out of them as I can!
Baby Preparation? Yes! The crib is now ordered! I can’t wait to see the bedding and and crib all put together.
Its really going to feel REAL when I see the crib set up in the nursery. I hope I’m not jumping the gun here. I know I still have a long way to go, but I am trying to think positively. I have a really good feeling that we will be bringing home a super cute, HEATHLY, baby girl in about 17 weeks.
Also, a good friend of mine, who also happens to be an exceptional photographer has offered to do maternity and newborn photos for me! This is such a great gift to Josh and I. We will cherish the pictures she takes for ever and ever! A big thanks to KC Russell Photography!
