Noah and I have decided on a first name for our baby girl. We are going to name her Ava. We are still thinking on what we want her middle name to be though. I have been feeling very pregnant lately. My tummy is popping out and I can really feel the baby kicking more and more.
How far along? 22 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/loss: 12 lbs! I weighed myself right after Thanksgiving so that might not have been a good idea. I go back to the doctor this Friday so we'll see what the scale says. So far I've been gaining at a good pace, but it's starting to depress me how BIG i am getting. But I just have to remind myself that 1) it's in the best interest of Ava and 2) I can lose it. (hopefully)
Stretch marks? according to babycenter.com if I may begin to see them around this time. yikes! I hope not.
Sleep: I've been sleeping okay so far but I definitely feel a difference in pre-pregnancy sleep and pregnancy sleep. My back aches sometimes.
Best moment this week: It will be on Friday when I get to hear Ava's heartbeat.
Movement: Feeling lots these days and it's still an amazing feeling each time.
Food cravings: my recent craving was krispy kreme doughnuts. Yummy HOT doughnuts!
What I miss: feeling attractive. I love being pregnant but there are those I feel huge moments and I've had those moments recently.
What I’m looking forward to: making it to 24 weeks will put my mind at ease a little. should anything happen, that will be the marker for viability.
Here's a belly shot from Thanksgiving weekend.

In a matter of weeks the frame was put up. That was so fast!
The siding was up here and the brick was next.
17 weeks 19 weeks
I can't really tell a difference in the first few weeks but definitely see and feel a difference in the last couple of weeks. There are more belly shots to come so stay tuned :)
For those of you who read my blog, Thanks :)

Total weight gain/loss: Gained 5 lbs, 6 altogether now.
Maternity clothes? Bought some last weekend; pair of work pants and couple of shirts.
Stretch marks? still none and praying everyday they won't ever appear
Food cravings: junk food and fruit
What I miss: okay I cheated. I've had an ice cold Coke. (but don't tell Noah, he'll get so mad)

My friend Cassie, who is also pregnant, was a bit luckier than Noah and I. She had an appointment yesterday and found out she's having a girl! I am so excited for her and Thomas! I am also so thrilled we get to go through our first pregnancy together :)
Today I came home to a sweet surprise in the mail. The package was addressed to Noah and I and the envelope was from "New Baby Welcome Wagon". I opened it up and found three cute beanies and a letter. I am not sure who the gift is from but I think it is such a cute and thoughtful gesture. My only clue to who it would be is on the stamp. It was sent from a Bloomingdale zipcode. Hmmmm... I can't recall anyone I know living in Bloomingdale??? Well I'm really excited for all the surprises to come each month. Whoever you are, thank you!!!!
We heard the news--a Baby is due!!!
Knowing that your life will never be the same again is both the most awe-inspiring and most wonderful thing.
To let you know how happy we are for you, a little something will be sent your way each month till the wonderful day...
Being a little behind, we'll play catch up, so check your mail! ) So sweet Right???
