22 Weeks

I am officially in the "honeymoon" phase.  I am feeling great all the time, and don't even feel pregnant most of the time. I cleaned my house from top to bottom on Saturday, and put all of my Christmas decorations out.  It felt so good to be productive after feeling sluggish for so long.  I am soaking up every minute, because I know the "miserable" stage will be here before I know it.

Weight: I think we are going through a growth spurt, because I have been a eating machine lately.  I have been a little worried about how bad its going to look on the scale.  I randomly got on my scale at home yesterday, and I had lost weight.  I guess working out is still paying off.  I still get up at 4:30, and go to boot camp.  I try to run twice a week.  After my run yesterday I am a little worried about my 5K on Thanksgiving Day.  Mainly from the pressure, and having to pee so much.  I may try to get a support belt to see if it helps.  Has anyone else tried one?

Sleep:  I have had terrible headaches, so I have been taking Zyrtec at night.  It used to wire me, but now it makes me tired, so I have been sleeping like the dead.  The night before last I didn't even get up to pee.  I have random nights I don't sleep well, but no complaints over all.  I think because I get up so early I am still going to bed really early.

Food/Eating: As I mentioned, I have been eating non-stop.  I literally feel like I cannot get full.  I am still stuck on breakfast food.  Luke is wonderful, and gets up almost every morning to cook for me while I am at the gym.  I have given up Apple Juice and moved on to orange juice.  I eat probably 4-6 "Cuties" a day.  I am definitely not lacking in the vitamin C department these days. Instead of burritos, I eat soup for lunch now.  I still cannot make myself eat salads like I used to.  I can't think of anything else I crave consistently.  It is more of I get the urge for something, and have to have it.

Movement: He is still a busy little bee.  I love feeling him move, and the movements are becoming more distinct now.  Its not as much flutters, as kicks and flips.  He was transverse at my ultrasound, but I can't tell if he has changed positions or not.  I can finally feel him move from the outside.  Luke tried to feel him last night, but he stopped moving as soon as he put his hand on my stomach.

Gender: Sullivan Hugh Graves!  I found myself wondering what he will look like the other day.  Will he have brown eyes like his mom and big brother, or green eyes like his daddy??  His profile from the ultrasound looked a lot like Hudson's.

What I miss:  I really don't feel like I am missing too much of anything right now.  I thought I was missing wine. I had a small glass over the weekend, and it just didn't taste right.  This is my favorite stage in pregnancy, so I don't have any complaints.

I am not going to lie, I am pretty pumped about being pregnant during the holidays.  I was a little worried about going overboard, but it is nice to be "guilt free."

I feel like he has really popped out over the last few weeks.
