22 Weeks

OK, so I realize I have missed a week. 
Let me brief you on the drama real quick. 
We have not moved.  We have not closed on the houses.  We are living amongst boxes.  Literally.
(This is only a small example, the pile is much larger now!)

We have no idea when we're moving either because the girl buying our house had her loan the 11th friggin hour!!!  Needless to say, I'm not a very happy camper. 
So while doing these baby updates are not high on my priority list at the moment, I still want to do them so I can keep my own little journal.  Once we figure out all the moving drama, I hope to make these more exciting and detailed.  Think good thoughts for us to be able to close soon!!!

Stats of the Week 
Size of baby:   11 inches or the length of a spaghetti squash (yum), almost 1 pound!! 

What I miss:  Living in a house that doesn't smell like cardboard!

Best Moment this week:  Bryan got to feel the baby move again.  I have been feeling it lots more lately, but every time he went to feel the baby would stop moving.  So I put some headphones to my belly while he had his hand on it and played our wedding song (Stand by me) and wouldn't you know...the baby started moving around!  I also saw my stomach move on its own...that was just weird! 

What baby likes AKA cravings:  Everything sweet!!!  The damn holidays and all the delicious treats that are available.  I even just snapped at my boss when he came into my office with a huge platter of cookies and offered me one.  I yelled "NO, get them away from me!"  Poor guy, probably thought he was doing the pregnant girl a favor by offering her one first before anybody else got their hands on them.  I need to regain some self control.  I have always had amazing will power and I feel like it's just out the window!!  Plus I think I'm stress eating due to the house.    I'm very scared to get on the scale next week at the doctor!

Movement:  Lots more!

Sleep:  Not so good lately, but I think it has more to do with all the crap going on.  That and all the dust in our house is making Bryan snore really bad.  He was exiled to the couch the other night!

Size of mommy: growing.  (I don't really like this question, I may delete it)

Looking Forward to: Closing on the house, but more importantly getting the hell out of town for a few days and going to NJ for Christmas where I can actually feel like it's Christmas and forget about the house drama for a little bit!

Picture: This is going to have to come later.  I'm afraid if I wait to take a picture I'll never get this posted.  I'll get one soon!

20 Weeks...halfway there!!!

Ya know what's worse than being sick...
Being pregnant and sick!!  ugh!

I had my last business trip of the year this week and unfortunately I was not able to make it home without picking up a nasty cold of some sort!  My head pretty much feels like it might explode, I can't sleep due to the lack of being able to breathe, but thankfully my sand paper sore throat seems to have subsided. 
Now I need to take my "pregnancy approved" medicine list and get my rear end to the store. 
Oh and "drinking lot of fluids" is so much fun when you already have to drink lots due to said pregnancy...and then you have to use the bathroom 4 times every hour instead of 3.  That's neat too.

As for what else is happening these days, we're just living amongst boxes as we start the packing process for moving.  I wouldn't care so much, except it makes me a little sad it's during the holidays and I can't decorate my house.  Here's my sad attempt at bringing a little Christmas spirit into our home

That's our Christmas tree for now! 
Better than nothing I suppose!
2 weeks and counting till the move, woo hoo!!!

Stats of the WeekSize of baby:    About 6 inches or the size of a banana!!

What I miss: we're back to wine this week, more specifically red wine

Best Moment this week: Bryan felt the baby move and it was probably the best reaction and look on his face that I have ever seen!!  It was pure shock and joy all at the same time.  A moment I'll never forget.

What baby likes AKA cravings:  red meat.  Ever since I found out I'm deficient in Iron all I want to eat are Cheeseburgers! 

Movement:  It's becoming a little more frequent, but not enough for anybody else to feel.  Bryan only felt it that once.

Sleep:  Not good at all with this cold

Size of mommy:  I discovered at 4am this week as I was getting dressed for my 6am flight to Nashville that indeed NONE of my pants fit anymore.  I truely thought my dress pants would fit for awhile but it turns out I was wrong.  I need pants.

Looking Forward to:  Moving and getting settled in the new house

(Just a side note here.  I was on my way to a Christmas party, I don't typically wear sparkly tops as part of my every day, hang at home routine :)
