22 Weeks Pregnant

How far along? 22 Weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: According to what I am supposed to weigh by now (based off of what I weighed at the beginning of my pregnancy), I am 14 lbs under the expected weight. Not too worried by it though, since I have been gaining weight back still and my midwife is not concerned either. :) Most likely it's just because of my change in diet and leftover morning sickness. I have now gained nearly 9 pounds since I lost the 13. 
Maternity clothes: I got a few tops and a pair of maternity slacks from one of my friends this week - that was lovely! (If you're reading this, thanks Moosha! :D) I am looking forward to getting some maternity jeans - my other ones still "fit", because they are stretchy, but I have to wear them really low and they slip down....unless I wear a belt, but it's very uncomfortable. 
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: sleep has gotten a little bit better this week, but even the smallest sounds keep me up. Tombstone and Marshmallow (two of our kitties) have been horrible about standing in front of our door yeowling for half an hour every time I return to the room after using the restroom. 
Best moment this week: The Ultrasound :D It was a super cool and emotional experience! I will be making a separate post about it. 
Food cravings: None this week
Anything making you queasy or sick? The famous cough gag and certain smells - if one of our cats recently used the cat litter, I can't be in the room. Because smell ---> cough gag ---> bolting for bathroom ---> lose stomach contents
Gender: As you can see in the picture - it's a BOY! :D 
Labor signs: Nope
Symptoms: I jinxed myself during last week's post! The day of my ultrasound, I got sick three times. >.< I was out of Zofran. Once Mike went to pick it up and I took one, I felt so much better! So I'm still getting sick. Another thing is my hurts SO badly often. If I stand for more than two minutes, when I go to sit down, it feels like it's breaking. I have to ease myself into the chair...I also find if I sit on anything other than the bed, or a couch/armchair, my tailbone starts giving me problems shortly after. I've been having to paint sitting in bed this week in a slightly reclined position, using a wooden board as a table. I can't sit in the office chair anymore because it hurts so badly. It's literally a pain in the a**. lol
Belly button in or out? In for now
Happy or moody most of the time: Super happy this week! :D 
Looking forward to: Decorating/Painting Halloween pumpkins this week with Mike
