Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights!

How Far Along: 22 weeks- I cannot believe that we are FINALLY on the down hill stretch! I keep thinking that when Ryan starts 4th grade we will only be WEEKS from welcoming our amazing little girl into the world. I love her so much already!

Size of baby: According to Baby Center, Harper is the size of a spaghetti squash and weighing about a pound.

What's Harper doing in there:
Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If we could see inside my womb, we'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her body and the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside her belly, her pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily. - from BabyCenter

Total Weight Gain/Loss: + 10 lbs maybe 10.5. I'm not complaining! So far it's just in my belly!

Maternity Clothes: Really a mixture of everything- some regular and some maternity. For my birthday, (which is May 24) my parents and grandparents gave me a mini shop-o-rama for maternity wear! Whoo Hoo! Still need some other stuff and a swim suit!
Gender: Momma's lil girl- Harper Elise
Movement: Harper likes to dance! It's official- we've all felt her kick!

What I miss:  I am not missing anything! It is truly amazing how different pregnancies can be but I swear my amazing husband, Brian, makes all the difference in the world. I absolutely L-O-V-E being pregnant! I love knowing I'm creating this little person who God created ME to be the mother! YEAH!

Cravings: Spicy!

Symptoms: Well, no symptoms but I am "limited activity" STILL! Boo! Mama Drama.

Best Moment this week: Shopping!
