22 Weeks

A big week! We have ordered a crib, a dresser, a rug, and bedding!

Things I have learned over the week! I have no balance! People will rub your belly no matter what and comment on your size!
Also, we have a very active and shy baby! He will kick all day and night for me, but as soon as someone else wants to feel him he quits! This happened several times over the weekend when we were home visiting family! My aunt sat with her hands on my tummy for about 15 minutes and nothing. As soon as she took her hands off several kicks right in a row! I don't know what is up with that!

Payne is about 11 inches and weighs almost a pound! He is strong little man! He kicks and punches hard! I know, I know! Just wait it will gets worse! His eyes, eyebrows, and lips have now all formed. I can really feel my tummy growing this week. It is stretching like no other!

So far this week, I have had no problems. Yet, every time I read a book, typically a week late reading about the week, I have whatever symptom they say is possible that week. That is probably pay back for never having morning sickness.

I have completly given up jeans/pants! So, don't be surprised when you see the same dresses over and over! I'm not rich enough to buy 30 new dresses! Ryan has been kind enough to switch sides of the bed with me. I have found that I can sleep much better on my left side now. So I can lay on my left side and face the outside of the bed. Though I spend a lot of time on my back.

Hopefully, this weekend we can order the glider. I know I have been saying that for several weeks now, but really I hope to get it done this weekend. Anything else I should be thinking about? I am coming up with ideas for how organize his closet.

Hope everyone has a great week. I will try to be a better blogger this week.

Lilly and Reid were both extremely active for Matt and I...but shy for other people. Just wait a couple of months and they will be able to just watch your belly move.

When I first wore maternity pants I swore I wasn't going back to regular pants because I was finally comfortable. Haha!

Anyway, glad everything is going good. You look great--all belly!
