22 weeks and counting

How many weeks:  22 weeks - and I'm holding my breath

How am I feeling: overwhelmed with the thought that we may actually make it with this one.  Is it too early to start feeling this way?

Doctor’s Appointment:  April 8th @ 23 weeks

Weight Gain:  5lbs
Maternity Clothes:  what else is there??

Baby Preparation: Still purging the nursery.  I have to work slowly b/c I'm still on modified bed rest, so I just try to do a little each day.

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 4 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0)

Best moment this week:  being pregnant & really beginning to feel his movements

Movement: It's different than I imagined.  It's like being thumped on the belly...but from the inside.  It's totally a weird a sensation!

Food cravings: Still salty foods, peanut butter especially. 

What I miss: not being so sensitive to smells

What I am looking forward to: Today.  Each day I spend time with God just being completely overwhelmed by Him & this amazing little child.

Milestones:  April 15th...24 weeks...Viability day!!

What baby should be looking like:

What a journey you have been on. My heart breaks for you and the loss you have suffered. Your strength to keep going and hope for this new baby you are carrying is inspiring. I lost a daughter 3 years ago and, as you know, my life is forever changed. I wish you so much peace and a wonderful life with your soon to be new baby.

I wanted to add that you and I are a week apart. I am 21 weeks today. I'm carrying a girl though. :)
