Way behind on my weekly posts... Here's week 19-22! :)

Christmas break got me all thrown off of my usual schedule... sorry! So here's a quick recap. I will post more about our fun Christmas in Alabama later!

Week 19

Introducing... Paisley Katherine! Paisley because it is cute and unique, and Katherine after my beautiful sister! :) This is also the week that I really started feeling Paisley kicking!

Week 20

 She's getting bigger every day... at this point I finally started feeling/looking pregnant :) How exciting!

Week 21

 Back in Utah, where Paisley is staying all warm in toasty in mommy's belly while she FREEZES in the sub zero weather! Lucky little girl! She has now moved from little kicks to forceful punches! Which means daddy has an easier time feeling her move :) He loves it!

Week 22

 This is where we are today... one WHOLE POUND! Such a big girl!

Total weight gain/loss: 12 pounds! dang girl!

Maternity clothes? I can still fit in my usual clothes, but I much prefer my maternity tops! They are so comfy and fit just right! Still holding on to my skinny jeans though ;) We shall see how much longer I can!
Stretch marks?  Nope! Rockin the coco butter though :)

Sleep: Depends on the night... she is getting heavier, and I cannot sleep on my stomach anymore. But I am getting used to being on my side!

Best moment this week: Smiling as daddy talked to her, telling her how much he loves her and can't wait to meet her! And we also put speakers on my belly for her to listen to, but I was afraid of hurting her ears so it was down super low haha I dunno if she heard it!

Miss Anything? sushi and not being so worried about what I eat! It used to just be onions, which even though that was a pain, it was do-able to avoid them. But now it is not just onions but minced or dried onions as well! HELLO there are onions in EVERYTHING! I can't pick up a pizza from Little Caesars, because it is in the sauce. Every soup, rice a roni, etc that I have in my pantry had dried onions. Every salad dressing, including ranch, in my fridge has them. The list goes on and on! Shopping for groceries takes twice as long because I have to check every label before buying it! And eating out is hard to do :( Any suggestions?? The onions make me belch. Not burp, but gross nasty belches. And those belches make me nauseous. It's just gross :(

Movement: oh yeah! she's a feisty little one!

Food cravings: war, comfort foods

Anything making you queasy or sick: Onions! Onions! Onions!

Have you started to show yet: Yep :)

Gender: A sweet baby girl :)

Labor Signs: Nope.

Belly Button in or out? In, but just barely!

Wedding rings on or off? On, but a tad bit tighter

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy :)

Looking forward to: Getting a bigger belly ;) haha

How far along? 22 weeks!
