22 Weeks

How far along: 22 Weeks 1 Day
Total weight gain/loss: +7 lbs. They're starting to stack up!
Maternity clothes: I'm switching between the brown ones that myMom got me for Christmas and the jeans I bought a few weeks ago. I need at least one more pair. Also I need shirts! Right now I'm constantly having to pull down the shirts I have so that they cover the belly band area. The weekends have been a washup lately because of all the snow so I think I'm going to have to go after work (which I hate doing).
Sleep: For some reason I've started waking up about 4am and stressing about various things. I can't break this habit! Funny story, last night I couldn't get comfortable because Les was sleeping where my legs & feet usually go. I finally got fed up and just pushed my legs where I wanted them to go and Les ended up falling off the bed! She landed on her feet and just stood there in shock. Eventually she walked to her bed and settled down. Then by morning she was back on our bed but this time sleeping between Kevin and I.
Food cravings/aversions: TMI but my gag reflex is at super high! If I've got food in my mouth and even slightly think about gagging I have to physically fight to keep my mouth closed. Last night was the worst. Also it doesn't matter what I'm eating.
Gender: Boy Boy Boy!! We are getting closer to a name in that I've picked out a name. It got an immediate no from Kevin but I'm fighting for it! The other day he used it in passing so I think I'm winning! I think I might have to give up on claiming the middle name too and let him pick that name if I get my first name.
Movement: Everyday! I've been really lucky that he's so active. Last night while watching the Superbo.wl I was wearing some elastic track pants (which were a little tight by the end of the day) and whereever I put the waistband he would push against it. Lower, higher, in the middle, it didn't matter. Eventually I had to just switch them out for pajama bottoms.
Best moment this week: Seeing GV on the screen! Especially his face.
What I miss: Nothing.
I am looking forward to: Kevin being able to feel GV move.
Weekly wisdom: Prayer works. No matter how small or great the request, just give it up to Him and He'll tell you what you need to know.
Milestones: 55% downloaded.
