Pregnancy: 22 Week Update


Well, now that you know where I was during week 21 and why I missed the update, I'll fill you in on week 22.

How far along? 22 Weeks

Size of Baby:  Spaghetti Squash! I've never eaten one, but it's on my list of things to try eventually. 

Weight Gain: Don't know. Don't care :) 

Nursery: No progress. As you know, we've been a little preoccupied this week. 

Movement: He kicked like CRAZY (more than ever before) the day of the accident. Probably all that adrenaline had him going. Since then it's just been the normal movements, usually at night or if my feet are up. When I'm relaxed I feel him thumping away in there. 

Symptoms: I have had a bit of RLP lately and some growing pains through my low pelvis. It feels like he's getting heavier. Thankfully, I still feel pretty great. I was just telling Hubs the other night that at this point with LW I remember feeling like a complete whale and this time I'm so much smaller. It is so much more pleasant! 

Cravings: Weeks 20-beginning of 22 were ALL about the JJ #6 and BBQ chips. As in I probably ate that combo 6-10 times in those two weeks. And LOVED every minute of it. Last night we went to Red Robin for dinner to celebrate Pete joining our family and I had their turkey burger. I only ate half and saved half for lunch...and I probably will order it to go at least 5 more times in the near future because it tastes unbelievable right now.  

Looking forward to: Nothing. And I don't mean that in a bad way. I mean after the accident, I'm focusing on NOW. Today. I'm trying not to look "forward" to anything and miss today. I want to absorb and drink in every minute of today that I can. Because before you know it, you could be rolling down a ditch in a car crash. 

Things I can't stop thinking about: The accident. I'm trying my best not to dwell on it or replay it in my head anymore. Whether I am laughing about what happened because it's so absurd that I can't believe it was real, praying thanks to God that I am okay, daydreaming about my new car or thinking about the "what-ifs" of what could have happened...I haven't been able to get away from it yet. I know it was only a few days ago, but I'm struggling to just let it be. I've started hitting my stride back to "normal" with housework and errands again, and driving doesn't bother me at all (it helps that now I'm driving my dream car) but when I sit and have a minute to just think, it tends to cloud my mind. 

And turkey burgers. I can't stop thinking about turkey burgers.
