20, er, uh, 22 week update! A little late!

So I was doing so good, posting pregnancy updates every month. Then came the holidays and all that went out the window. So here is my 20/22 week update.

I was 20 weeks on Christmas day, which was pretty special. We hit our halfway mark on Christmas! Woo-hoo! I've definitely noticed a difference in the last month. Baby girl and I are both growing. People actually notice I'm pregnant now. It also has been more "real" lately since we can "see" her growing and feel her too. On the day of our big sonogram, I was sitting on the couch watching TV. She started kicking and I put Randy's hand on my stomach. She kicked just for him! We thought it was the coolest thing. :)

As far as symptoms, the only thing that I've been struggling with is sleep. Not that I can't go to sleep. Its the staying asleep and comfortable part. I've always been a side sleeper, but suddenly when I can't sleep on my back, I want too! I've had Randy switch sides of the bed with me twice to try to find a better position. Good thing we have a king sized bed! Otherwise he might be in the guest room! (You know I'm only teasing....)

I've officially outgrown all non-maternity pants except my comfy pj's. I thought it was pretty good to last this long before making the maternity clothes transition. Thankfully a sweet friend loaded me up with her stash and now I'm not wearing the same pair of pants to work each day. Thanks Jami!

Hmmm...no strange cravings, just hungry every 2 hours or so. Trying my best to eat lots of fruit and veggies and whole grains, but every once in a while ice cream tastes sooo good.

I'm hoping to start working on what we need for this little girl soon. We are in the middle of house hunting, so I don't want to get a ton of stuff to only have to pack it up and move it. Be praying we have wisdom and clarity as we have a few possibilities available to us. Just need to know which one fits us best. I know God has a reason its taken this long, just have to be patient and trust!

And the pics (what you all were waiting for)...18, 20 and 22 weeks. Enjoy!

cuteness! I think you look adorable! And that is exciting to last in your normal clothes that long! I was out of mine by like week 13 or 15 I think! :)
