22 Week Bumpdate!

How Far Along? 22 Weeks and 5 Days
 Size of Baby P? Spaghetti squash(11 inches)
This week's major developments:
At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. 
If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

Maternity Clothes? Yes, still wearing a few of my "normal" shirts, but mostly maternity!
 Weight Gain? I go to the doctor Tuesday (May 1st) so we will see!! On my scale I have lost 3 pounds due to things that do not need to be discussed over the internet;) My next appointment will be the dreaded GLUCOSE TEST! I finally measured my belly again and I had gained 11 inches! He's ALL IN THE FRONT!! :)
Stretch Marks/belly button? No stretch marks but belly button is totally flat now...
Gender? David GAGE Pody ;)
Sleep? Still waking up from about 2:30 to 5 :( I know, I know... "JUST WAIT UNTIL THAT BABY GETS HERE!" I get it, but I would love to "train" myself to be able to fall back asleep after each feeding and not lay staring at the ceiling for 3 hours. I've never had this much trouble falling back to sleep, guess it's a pregnancy thing!
Food Cravings?Still loving Popsicles, especially the push pops in PINK!
What I Miss? Still loving pregnancy...I guess I should say I miss my sleep, but honestly I'm not that tired during the day so I won't complain anymore!;)
What I am loving? Still loving preparing for our little man and marking things off of my endless "BEFORE BABY'S ARRIVAL LIST." (It has a back too;)
Movement? He's a flipper, roller, puncher, and kicker! And I love every minute of it.... 
Best Moment(s) of the Week and other random updates?
  •  Well, I ended up canceling my crib order from restoration hardware after I found something else. I just couldn't risk it not arriving ON TIME! Below, is daddy and Poppy unloading it out of Poppy's new truck he purchased for Gage to ride in!;)

Luckily, I married a man who has the same personality as myself, "Let's get it done and get it done now!" Daddy assembled the crib bright and early the next morning! 

  •  We are waiting on the painter to come look at the room, since mommy has to have something special on one wall, imagine that. 
  • I found a rocker/glider that FOR ONCE is not $1,000 dollars! I am excited and going to order it SOON! 
  • I also found a rug on shadesoflight.com and hope to order it soon!
  • His baby book arrived and I will share it very soon. It turned out perfect!
  • His bedding also arrived. Of course, it will be revealed once the nursery is complete! 
  • We are on the search for a coming home outfit as well! Any suggestions are welcome;)
  • Looking to schedule our parenting class and breastfeeding class during the summer!
  • Going to get a 4-D Ultrasound soon as well. Trying to make it to about 28 weeks but I am so ready to see him again!! Our insurance only pays for one at the beginning and the other at 20 weeks, so mommy needs to see that sweet face again very soon! :)
  • First baby shower MAY 5TH so very excited about that! :)
I guess that's all for now! 
Have a BLESSED weekend!


  1. You look fantastic! I cannot wait to see that nursery because I know it will be fabulous. I just love your decor style!

  2. you look fabulous! and trust me, once the baby is here you will certainly learn to fall asleep after feedings! you'll be too exhausted not to fall back asleep!

  3. You look beautiful with your baby bump. Can't see as I blame you guys on getting the crib together asap.

  4. Yay for the crib! That has to be good feeling to get that put together. Yall have a great weekend!

  5. Yay!! Can't wait to see his room all put together! I know it is going to be SO CUTE!
