22 Weeks Pregnancy Chalkboard

Wow!  It started to hit me yesterday that I only have 17 weeks left!  To some of you, 17 weeks may sound like a lot of time, but I’m a big time planner and I feel that I have so much to do….. I’ll share my list in a minute, but let’s start from the top.

Update Time:

How far along: 22 weeks

Clothing:  With the weather finally starting to warm up, at least for this past week, I’ve been able to wear some of my comfy dresses.  It looks like starting today or tomorrow though, I might have to go back to my maternity jeans.  I also had a slight clothing dilemma this week (well truth be told, pretty much every week), but every time I go into a store, I always seem to find a cute, regular size top that I really want.  I know that they won’t fit me right now, but I just keep thinking that it will one day.  For the most part though I’ve been pretty good and don’t buy them.  However, I happened to be at my favorite store, Lululemon, this week and ended up buying a pair of running leggings in my usually size.  I didn’t want to buy a larger size and have them fit me now, because then once I lose the baby weight I couldn’t wear them anymore and felt that it would be a waste of money.  I look at my new purchase this way….it will be a part of my motivation to lose the weight more quickly.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Lululemon, the thing about them is that their patterns are constantly changing and sell out incredibly fast.  If I didn’t get the running leggings now, I knew I  never would; which is why I went into the store.  Plus, I may have a slight addiction.  It seriously is the best workout apparel!

The shirt and running pants aren’t going to be worn together

Missing:  COFFEE…….I went out for coffee with a good friend this week, and of course got a decaf, but I miss my usual cup, or two, or three, of coffee.  And the coffee house never smelled so good!  My nose seems to be picking up the fragrant aroma everywhere too.  I absolutely love the smell of it!  I sense it at the grocery store, my house (my husband still drinks it), when I go places like target (they have a Starbucks), different restaurants, and even if a salesclerk somewhere happens to be drinking it and has it sitting off to the side.  It’s really been teasing me lately.

I’ve also been missing my memory this week.  I always laughed when friends would say they had “pregnancy brain”, because I always just thought it was an excuse for being late or forgetting something; however this week I’m really starting to discover that it’s for real.  For one thing my days have been completely off.  I woke up Monday and REALLY did think it was Friday, and then on Wednesday I thought it was Monday.  The worst though was when I went for coffee with my friend Sara.  She came to my house to pick me up and I decided to go out through the garage (we have one of those code boxes).  I ended up punching in my “code” and tried to close the door at least 10 or more times before I finally gave up, went to my car, and just took out the remote.  For the life of me I couldn’t remember how to close my garage door.  Sara just laughed and I had to too.  How pathetic!

Cravings:  I realized this week that I’ve been incorrect in my other posts.  I have had one REALLY strong craving every week throughout this pregnancy, and that’s pizza!  All that I want is pizza, and everytime a commercial for it plays it’s agony.  The reason I forget about it, or have never mentioned it, is because I haven’t given into that craving.  I’m feel I’m getting weaker though, but am trying my best to stay strong.  So others then pizza, I haven’t had any food cravings this week.  For some reason I actually haven’t been very hungry at all this past week, and eating has been more of a forced thing.  My stomach has been feeling really full but I tell myself that it’s been awhile since I’ve eaten, so I need to eat something.  Once I actually start eating though, I realize I want food, and eat quite a bit, but it’s the full feeling beforehand that makes me not want to.  It’s strange and I’ve really been trying my best to make healthy choices.

Health/Exercise:  Well it happened again.  I broke my second treadmill in just over 6 years.  Last time it couldn’t be fixed though, because I burnt out the motor, so Nordictrack sent me a brand new treadmill for next to nothing.  It was great!  This time the handle bar broke, so they are sending me a replacement piece.  I do have a nice little bruise on my arm though, curtesy of the wall.  I’m still not sure exactly how it happened either because the piece looks like it’s made of concrete.  I do use my treadmill a lot though, at least compared to most people I know.

Other than the treadmill I’ve also been working out at the gym a lot more and starting to increase my intensity again.  I know some of my family/friends worry a bit, but I just remind them that this is my job and that I know what I’m doing, plus what I’m physically capable of.  In addition to this, my doctor is fine with the way I workout.

Movement:  I’m starting to wonder if Griffin is ever going to really move in there?  Just my luck, he appears to be a stubborn baby already.  No, I’m totally just joking.  It’s strange though, how much you can already love someone you’ve never met.  I will say that I’ve felt little butterfly like movements a few times, but they never last long, not even a minute.  I just wish I could feel an actual kick or two, and I know that Jeff is becoming excited to feel something.  Hopefully soon!

Highlights of the week:  I started working on things for the nursery a little bit, while Jeff was out of town.  It was fun and kept me busy.  I ended up making some crates to store books or toys, and also painted some whale art.  If you don’t already know this about me, I love to be creative and have a few more ideas of things I plan to make for Griffin’s room.

After

I also received my first baby present in the mail!  My mom and dad were so nice and bought us our BOB Flex Revolution Jogging stroller that we registered for.  I can’t wait to get outdoors and run with Griffin.  He will definitely grow up in a physical active environment and know his way around a gym!

What’s next:  Oh my goodness, I’m starting to freak out a little.  I still have so much to do and only 17 weeks left!  Here’s what’s on my list.  Some of it I can get done thorughout the week, but what’s stressing me out is that the things I have to do with Jeff can only be done on the weekends and I will be in Michigan for 2 of them, so really that only gives me 15 weekends, assuming Griffin doesn’t come early.  Plus we have some visitors coming over 2 other weekends (which I’m excited about) so that really knocks it down to 13.  Agh! Time is running out.

  • 1. Buy baby furniture
  • 2. Set up nursery
  • 3. Design and arrange nursery closet
  • 4. Tour hospital
  • 5. Take infant first aid/CPR class (I already have mine for personal training, but I told jeff I’d go with him
  • 6. Attend birthing class (haven’t officially decided if I want to)
  • 7. Attend a breast feeding class
  • 8. Organize kitchen
  • 9. Get carpets cleaned
  • 10. Read my parenting books
  • etc…..

I know that everything will eventually get done, but I have to keep reminding myself that if it doesn’t, it will be ok.

I guess that’s really all there is for this weeks update, however I’ll be checking back in next week, and will hopefully post a few things in between.
