Over Half way there!!

SO many things going on in the past month since I updated. I started my injection therapy which has made morning sickness rear its ugly head once again. However, now I am used to it and know how to handle it. Its just better to stop what I am doing and throw up already. It just makes me feel better.

We have gotten a lot done as far as baby shopping is concerned. Crib,carseat, stroller, pack n play, bouncy seat, bedding. All that is left for the big stuff is a high chair and swing so I will probably go get that next weekend. I have done a ridiculous amount of clothes shopping for her. She literally has clothes up to the size 4t and shoes. I cant resist!! I got her a baby pair of uggs! My living room is a mess, you can barely walk in it. My fireplace is nonexistant due to the large number of rubbermaid totes in front of it.

Tim is leaving in a few weeks so I have limited time to get everything prepared and put together before he goes since he won't be back until after she is born. I am still waiting on her crib to get here so hopefully in the next 3 weeks before he leaves.

We go to the hospital every friday so I know how to get there in case I have to go alone in the middle of the night or something. I know its really early but I am going to load up the back of my SUV with my hospital bag and the babies bag probably in the next couple of weeks. The only reason is what if I am at work or out and my water breaks or something. I dont have anyone here to get what I need so I have to have it all with me at all times. I am going to go to the firestation to have them put in her carseat next month to be prepared. I am so nervous to have her on my own I just need to have everything ready early.

How far along: 22weeks and 3 days

Total weight gain: I have finally gained weight, I am up 1 pound~

How much does baby weigh: as of tuesday she weighed in at 1 pound and 4 ozs, she is a big girl already!!

Maternity clothes: I am full on into maternity clothes, I have quite the bump going on. I was fluffy before getting PG so I am sure that has something to do with it.

Stretch marks: I have them already from my first pregnancy (loss)

Sleep: Its getting harder and harder to sleep at night, Heartburn and just being uncomfortable

Best moment this week: Seeing her on ultrasound again and seeing her grow and watch her play in there. She is so precious already!!

Movement: She is very active, She loves cheese haha and salads!

Food cravings: Rootbeer and cheese! Oh and salads omg I want them breakfast lunch and dinner

Belly button in or out: Half and half, its almost flat

What I miss: Sleeping on my belly.

What I'm looking forward to: Finishing everything we need to be ready for her.

Milestone: Knowing that she is growing perfectly and is healthy.
