22 Weeks!

How far along: 22 weeks with a new haircut!
Total weight gain: +6 according to the home scale
Maternity clothes: Lots of belly band.  Can't button most pants now.  Shirts are getting a little shorter.  Wearing as many dresses as possible until fall hits.  Bought more maternity clothes this past week at a huge consignment sale.  
Stretch marks: None
Sleep: I'm sleeping well, but the hubby is dealing with new issues - to quote him "I'm invading his space and snoring." I'm working on finding a solution for the snoring.    
Symptoms:  itchy stomach - using vitamin E to help, stuffy nose - thus the snoring, my appetite is finally back and actually better on somedays than pre-pregnancy, lots of dizzy spells, random back pain that comes and goes.  
Best moment this week: Finding a pattern to crochet for her little baby blanket.  I've made blankets for several friends and it's so much fun to work on a blanket for my own little girl.
Miss anything: Sushi - I get cravings for it now and then.
Movement: She has been moving like crazy this last week, especially the last couple of days.  I feel her at random times during the day and hubby can feel her consistently.  
Food Cravings: Cheese, bean and cheese burritos, ginger ale, and more pasta. 
Anything make you sick or queasy: ground beef really is pretty much the only thing I still avoid completely.  Other things don't always sound good, but that's more an in the moment kind of thing!
Gender: GIRL!  Still not posting her name because we can't agree on the spelling of her middle name.  Hopefully next week, we'll be able to post.
Belly Button in or out: in
Wedding rings on or off: on
Mood: Generally happy.  Feeling really good almost all the time, which is AMAZING!!!
Looking forward to: Buying furniture for the nursery! Finding fabric for her bedding and putting the entire design of her bedroom together!
