I'm 22 weeks on the nose today. Approximately 126 days remaining. The little guy's favorite place/position: on my bladder. This is worse than the first trimester...LOL

This week's u/s went just swimmingly...still a healthy baby boy. Haven't truly heard the result of the bloodwork taken earlier....I saw one of my OBs partners as part of yesterday's regularly scheduled check-ups. I had to ask for the results, and she said "oh it's fine" ... my OB usually will choose to go into more detail...and since she didn't look at my actual chart...well, I'm going to call in this week to double check.

Ordered a couple more maternity bras and snuck a couple more shopping trips for an extra maternity top at Target (which normally doesn't carry my size...but they had super-duper big maternity shirts in one color, and it was dressy but still t-shirt material...which is what I've been looking for).

I've ripped apart my knitting again. I think the pattern is just too advanced for me, or I'm having more trouble understanding things. I found this week that I'm literally passing out rather than taking naps. Brain foggy at some things.


Peace

Jamie, I keep finding cute maternity tops at a local thrift store and I've been tempted to buy them and tuck them away --not for me, mind you! Laughing

At least these days they're selling cuter things that can also be more appropriate for more mature moms! Wink

Enjoying the process with you!


Blessings,

The maternity clothes really are cuter than they were when I was in my 20s! Back then women were dressed like giant baby-dolls - waistless dresses with frills at the bottom and giant sailor suit collars...that sort of thing. The only thing I haven't been able to find in stores/thrifts are those tacky-cheesy pregnancy tee-shirts with some pun or quip about being pregnant. ("Baby on board" or "I'm a mom to BEE" with a bee on it...I had that one with my first pregnancy.) Those aren't necessary, but we had looked for something silly like that when we were going to pop the news to the ILs over dinner.

Of course, there are even cuter maternity clothes in the smaller sizes (I started out in big sizes despite my having lost 20 pounds pre pregnancy). It's been difficult finding shirts that meet all my "perfect" requirements...but those I have found I truly love. This is a pregnancy where I have not spent a lot of care on the wardrobe (my prior pregnancies I worked in the business field and had to worry about dress codes). I will confess that I have had very little in the way of looking at myself and feeling disgusted with body changes. Who knows, that might come along in the last couple of months...but honestly, I have never felt more beautiful and content with myself.


Peace

That's wonderful, Jamie! I think I enjoyed the process a lot more during my last pregnancy, too. As a more mature mom, you learn to appreciate what a gift from God pregnancy is!
