22 weeks

How far along: 22 weeks

How big is baby: the size of a papaya

Weight Gain/Loss: I honestley haven't been on the scale in about a week so who knows!

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants/and or shirts depending on the day.

Stretch marks: Nope

Sleep: Not so well, althought the last few nights have been better

Best Moment of the Week: cooler weather and rain I guess.

Movement: Yes! It is an amazing feeling- I'm sure I'll be tired of the kicks by the end, but I'm loving it now.

Symptoms: growing belly, insomnia

Food Cravings: Popcorn- air popped, no butter, no salt- I've eaten it 3 days this week

Gender: We'll find out in January or early February!

Labor Signs: None.

What I am Looking Forward too: The cooler temperatures, celebrating this miracle, getting the nursery together, and I know not baby related but......the holidays- I will admit I'm ready for some Christmas music :)

No picture again this week because our internet is not working at home.  I'll post a picture update when it is.

Any advice for first time parents?  I have been reading everything I can get my hands on, but feel like a fellow mom's advice is the best-
