i wasn't feeling very photogenic last week, and was also feeling too lazy to do a 21-week update. sue me. still not feeling very photogenic, but matt insisted we not skip another week. so here you go.
baby is the size of: a spaghetti squash
how far along are you: 22 weeks 3 days
what's happening with baby: baby's eyes, eyelids, and eyebrows are now more distinct. he even has tooth buds forming under his gums! his eyes have formed, but his irises still have no pigment.
due date: jan 10
maternity clothes: all maternity pants. mostly maternity shirts. and dresses.
sleep: once i'm asleep, i sleep through the night. but my back hurts on waking up.
best moment this week: finally started feeling movement! a few times i even felt him from the outside, but so far matt hasn't felt him yet.
what are you looking forward to: painting the nursery (started yesterday...debating a third coat on the orange accent wall).
food cravings: tuna? i normally rarely eat tuna, but i've had it 3 times in the past 10 days. i don't go out of my way to find it, but every time i'm looking at a menu or something, i gravitate to it.
food/smell aversions: nothing.
what do you miss: being able to stand up without my tailbone yelling in pain.
symptoms: tailbone pain. big belly. back pain. and my feet and hands are definitely swollen by the end of the day.
gender: baby boy!!
belly button: in.
rings: on. definitely uncomfortable by the end of the day. hopefully now that the weather should start cooling off, this won't be a problem anymore.
