mandy over at is pregnant too! she has answered some fun questions about her pregnancy, here. i thought i would take a minute to answer a few myself...i hope she doesn't mind. :)

picture taken at 22 weeks

how far along? 22 wks

maternity clothes? i can still get by with a few regular tee shirts

stretch marks? nope

sleep? i am having quite a bit of discomfort in my hips, and laying on my side (as i have to) does not help me sleep. i have also been expriencing stints of very vivid dreaming.

best moment last week? waking early, and enjoying my quite reading time

movement? yes! over the past week movement has become more defined, stronger than the flutter i felt a few weeks ago. i still am not feeling her regularly, but it is definately more frequent.

symptoms? weight gain! it has now become uncomfortable to bend at my waist.

gender? girl. Addelyn Elizabeth

nursery? we finally decided on fabric and paint!

labor signs? no, and hopefully not for quite a while

belly button in/out? in. i am fearful of that particular transition.

what I miss? starbucks. having a beer on a patio. my old exercise routine.

looking forward to? 24 week sonogram, and officially starting the nursery

what the professionals are saying. (from
How your baby's growing:
At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. Her eyes have formed, but her irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'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 she 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.


  1. i love this! keep the q & a's coming!


  2. if your doc is ok with it and you are too, try some yoga poses like headstands and so on to get her out of your hips/pelvic region, should help with your hip discomfort. I have a client who did that all the way through her pregnancy and she said it was awesome!

  3. love this post chels! thank you for sharing and i look forward to more~

  4. YAY! I LOVE that you are doing the questions too!! Thanks for posting mine too...I think they will be soo much fun to look back on once our little bundles of joy actually arrive! I also like that you added in a few of your own! You look great, hope you are feeling great too!
