22 Weeks - Boy! Oh Boy!

Welcome to what is now my pregnancy blog! I debated on whether or not to do this but I like to write and keep everyone updated so let's do this! I'm starting this off over half way through...

Last Sunday we went in for an elective 3d/4d ultrasound at a wonderful place called 4d Imaging in Arlington Heights. We weren't planning on doing a 3d ultrasound but when our medical ultrasound was so unfriendly and we didn't find out the gender we decided we had to get another one. The result was, as many of you may have seen on facebook, it's a BOY! Levi and I couldn't be more excited (even though we both previously had dreams about girls, but it doesn't matter what it is as long as it's healthy)!

Here are some pictures for fun :-)
12 weeks

22 weeks

Our Little Man!

How far along? 22 weeks 
Total weight gain/loss: I'm at about 126 lbs according to my cheapy scale. I started off this adventure at 123lbs and lost about 7lbs in the first trimester.
Maternity clothes? I have 2 pairs of maternity shorts I alternate, I think it might be time to in some maternity jeans tho as it's been getting chilly at night/morning
Stretch marks? Nothin! I hope this mama mio stuff really works!
Sleep: I sleep pretty well in general, sometimes he wakes me up kicking in the middle of the night, but that's just preparing me right?!
Best moment this week:  Starting BRIO/Bradley Birthing classes and showing off my baby belly at Susie's Birthday dinner! lol

Miss Anything? Sushi! We had a conversation about it last night, I can't wait until I can eat it again!
Movement: Yes! All the time! He's a wiggle worm!
Food cravings: I still haven't really had any cravings, except the few times I wanted cheese fries
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Have you started to show yet: Oh Yes :)
Gender:  A Boy!!!
Symptoms:  Round ligament pain this week, what fun.
Belly Button in or out? It's kinda flattened out and disappeared
Looking forward to: Getting started on the Nursery!
