22 weeks = 5 1/2 months!!!

In the world of pregnancy keeping the weeks and months straight is a little difficult because it doesn't really work out the way my math inclined mind wants it to. Lucky for me a found a website that does it for me and yesterday this handy little website told me that today, the start of my 22nd week, I'd be starting my 5 1/2months!!! WHAT?! That means I only have 3 1/2 months, 126 days (which is even scarier because I'm close to single digits) until this kid gets here, how can that be? I've gotten nothing done. I still have 4 weeks of school left, which means when I'm done with school I'll be close to month 7!

Once my panic attack over how much time has already passed and how little is ahead of me was over I got down to doing what I do best, making To-Do Lists! I mean really it's the only way for me to keep my life from becoming too much for me, somedays, and ensuring everything gets done that needs to. Sure getting the kitchen/family room painted and kitchen cabinets painted is a priority but it'd be nice since hubz had promised me it'd be done before graduation and NOTHING's been done. My main focus right now is getting the nursery entered out and vacumed at least since my little brother is coming to stay with us for the first week in June. After that it's full steam ahead with everything else.

Even before we told people I've been doing this little pregnancy survey, just as a way for me to remember what I was feeling and what not throughout this pregnancey. While I haven't been so good at doing it every week I'm gonna try and change that. So hopefully every Thursday, that's when I enter a new week, I'm going to start putting it here. Enjoy!

How far along: 22 weeks!!

Total weight gain/loss: down 12 lbs (as of two weeks ago at my last appt)

Maternity clothes: Heck yes!

Stretch marks: no news ones, thank goodness

Sleep: lately it's been pretty good, no nightly bathroom visits

Best moment this week: constant movement

Food cravings: fruit and waffles

Gender: no idea and it's staying that way until birth

Labor Signs: None and it needs to stay that way for at least 15 more weeks

Belly button in or out? still in but it's starting to get shallow

What I miss: SEX!

What I'm looking forward to: hubz being able to feel burrito move

Weekly Wisdom: I'm either going to gain weight or not, but as long as baby's healthy that's all that matters.

Milestones: Increased movement

My current state of mind is overwhelmed. I have five weeks of school left, a job that's driving me nuts, a baby on the way, a husband that feels more like a child than the partner that he's suppose to be and a step-son that gets rewarded for doing his chores partially and does what he wants regardless of what I say. Most days I manage to keep everything a bay but some days I feel like I can't breath.

Half Baked

That's what the girls on the bump call it when we've hit 20 weeks of pregnancy. 20 weeks! How the hell did that happen? I guess since I spent most of 1st tri and all of 2nd tri vomiting it just snuck up on me. So with half my pregnancy behind me and half of it (give or take) in front of me I can't wait to see what's to come. Hopefully not more vomiting is part of it but I'm resigned to the fact that the sickness is just here to stay and so I'll deal with it.

Tomorrow we have our sonogram. While normally this is exciting for people because they get to find out the sex it's exciting for us because we get to see little burrito looking like an actual baby. We're taking the step-son with us so he can see his little bro/sis for the first time too. I'm anxious and excited all at the same time but mostly excited. Hubz has the philosphy that he's not going to worry until there's a reason to worry so I'm following his lead because otherwise I'll just work my self into a frenzy.

Unitl tomorrow when I'll follow up with details....
