*How far along?: 22 weeks!
*How big is baby?: A plump papaya.
*Total Weight Gain/Loss: Okay, the official word so far... +21. I gained 6 pounds last month. I'm going to blame it on the McDonald's. ;D
*Maternity Clothes: Almost everything. I'm in regular leggings today and they just aren't stretching enough. Argh!
*Stretch Marks: None that I can see!
*Gender: A BOY. Get ready to meet Cannon Theodore!
*Movement: LOTS. He is doing back flips always.
*Sleep?: Pretty normal but I have been waking up when he karate chops me or if I have to go to the bathroom. I've been sleeping 9 hours religiously. That's nice.
*Best moment this week? Visiting my friends in Tampa. It was a nice road trip but left me with SWOLLEN ankles. Fo' serious.
*Food cravings?: Nothing really. I told my husband this last night -- I feel like my cravings have stopped. A few weeks ago I would kill you for a taco, but now I'm just up for eating whatever. Though... I did
*What I miss: Being able to stay up late and walk around without disappearing ankles.
*Symptoms: SWELLING. I didn't even do TOO much activity this weekend. Sure, I stayed up to 3 a.m. like the good ol' days. I walked around Hyde Park. I went to a concert in the sun all day Sunday. But, it wasn't anything CRAZY. I didn't walk MILES. Either way, my knees and ankles were not my best friends and I spend Sunday night and all of Monday wondering if my ankles would ever return.
*What I'm Looking Forward To: My mom is moving down to Ft Myers next weekend! That's pretty crazy. We are also taking some pictures on Saturday... I don't want to call them "maternity" even though I guess they are...technically. I had a Groupon for a photo shoot but it expires soon so I figured now would be as good a time as any.
*Thoughts: I had a doctor's appointment this week (hence the accurate weight gain update!) and found out that right now he is breech. She said she expects him to turn (we have a long ways to go, right?!), but I just was like "oh, okay." I didn't know what to say! Google tells me that most babies are breech at this point and will almost always turn. Besides that, she said I should watch my salt because it's too early for me to be so swollen! Yikes! I need to take it easy. Hey, me, relax? Sounds great!
