{Baby Schartz: Week 22}

How far along?: 22 weeks
Total weight gain?: 8lbs, yikes! 
Size of baby?: Papaya! I've never had papaya!
Maternity clothes?: Not just yet!
Stretch marks?: Nooooo! Please stay away!!
Sleep?: I've noticed that I'm peeing a lot more and it's usually throughout the night, so that disturbs me a little, but otherwise sleep is great. 

I reread this and felt like I should add that I don't wet the bed, I make it to the restroom. HAHA. It just disturbs me having to get up in the middle of the night!
Best moment this week: We had an appointment this week. It was just a routine checkup. We heard the heartbeat, they measured my belly for the first time and prepped me for my glucose test next month! Also, it seemed like the baby kicked a little extra, listening to all of the fireworks last night. :) He can totally hear now and can even recognize familiar voices/sounds. 
Miss Anything?: I really could've gone for a summer cocktail yesterday! It was water for this girl though. 
Movement?: Crazy movement. Kor is in the habit of holding my belly at night and in the morning to feel all of his kicks :) My friend Carly was also able to feel him having a party in there last night. So cool. 
Food cravings: Still nothing, womp womp. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Just the heat every now and then. 
Gender: Baby BOY!! With the second sonogram, there is no doubt in my mind that we're having a little boy. Haha. 
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: Nesting, sweet baby kicks, hormones, emotions & excitement!
Belly button in or out?: In :) It's huge though, just sayin'. 
Wedding rings on or off?: On :)
Happy or moody most of the time?: I don't have one thing to complain about!
Looking forward to: Seeing lovely friends this weekend, my dear friend's birthday and my shower! 

I feel like I should document that I love being pregnant. Everything about this pregnancy has been wonderful. This has been the best experience in my life, by far. I know I still have about 4 months to go and things may get rough, but I want to remember the good. I want to remember that I was happy, my husband was good to me, I was healthy, my friends stood by me and I was overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude, love and joy. 

I'll say good night as my son break-dances in my belly. :)
