Fifth Month

7:00 AM

I must admit, I haven't blogged about this pregnancy as much as I would like. I certainly think about it all the time, as I am the one carrying the baby. So I plan to post pregnancy updates as a way to keep my out of towners up-to-date and to document my second pregnancy.

I'm 22 weeks along. We found out two weeks ago that we're having a girl. So here's the rest of the story.

Baby is the size of: a squash - about 11 inches long and almost a pound.

Symptoms: Feeling pretty good. Have occasional heart burn and a LARGE bottle of Tums on my night stand.

Maternity clothes: Maternity clothes mixed in with leggings and empire waisted tops.

Sleep: Still getting decent sleep. I am confined to my side, no more stomach sleeping.

Fun moment(s) this past week: Day dreaming about raising two girls.

Movement: She moves a lot at night. I feel flutters once I get still in the bed.

Food cravings/aversions: No particular cravings, just hungry!

Gender & Name: Girl and no name yet.

Weight gained: 11 lbs.

What I am looking forward to: Decorating the nursery and converting Libby's room into a "big girl" space.

Libby couldn't stand it, so she got in the shot with me. Proudly displaying her five. Thanks, Big Sister.

I'll be back with more stats as I continue along this most interesting journey of pregnancy.
