Goodbye to Our 2nd Home

Well, we are on to our 3rd apartment.  We are slowly making upgrades as we keep moving but I hope we can stay put for a while since we will have our hands full with the new baby.  As of now the plan is to stay here until we can buy something and that is going to be a while.

In the new house, Cody gets his own backyard and I don't have to deal with the up and down stairs.  We also have a garage now which is a total game-changer.  No more surfboards in the bedroom/livingroom/anywhere they will fit.  I think we are going to like it here :)

22 Weeks

  • How Far Along:  22 weeks

  • Baby Size: About the size of a papaya.

  • Total Weight Gain: Still don’t have a scale so I will know at my 24 week appointment.

  • Maternity Clothes: Still wearing both maternity and non maternity. 

  • Stretch Marks: No not yet.

  • Sleep: I am still sleeping well.  I feel like I got lucky because people keep asking me about it like I should be sleeping terribly.

  • Best Moment of the week: Getting into our new apartment.  I love a fresh start.

  • Miss Anything?: Not really this week.

  • Movement:  She’s moving all the time now.

  • Food Cravings: I have had a couple of weird cravings but as soon as I eat what I was craving it satisfies it and they don’t come back.  But isn’t that just normal?

  • Anything Making you queasy or sick: Nope.

  • Gender: Girl.

  • Labor Signs:  No.

  • Symptoms: Sciatica might be coming back.  I had it at weeks 7 and 8 and it was really bad but now it’s on the other side and really faint.  I hope it stays that way J

  • Belly Button in or out: In but getting flatter.

  • Wedding Rings on or off: On.

  • Mood: Great.  I obviously consider myself lucky (I named my blog after it) but really I almost feel bad when I’m talking to other pregnant friends.  I sleep great, my skin and hair have never looked better, I feel healthy and strong, I haven’t had one second of morning sickness, and I haven’t had to really limit myself in any way.  I don’t drink or eat foods I’m not supposed to but I don’t miss all of that very much.  Maybe I’m just one of those people who was made for this?  Maybe I just got lucky so far and with this pregnancy?  I don’t know but I’m very grateful for it J (I really hope I haven’t just jinxed myself for the next pregnancy)

  • Looking forward to: The new nursery.  We have officially moved but the new house is still a huge mess.  After I get organized it’s on to the nursery.  We are so fortunate to have friends with great taste that keep gifting us their old furniture so we have a crib and changing table already.

  • Exercise:  Moving means I leave behind our private gym in the complex we lived in.  I will have to be more disciplined and get in my car and drive to the gym but I have been enjoying my workouts so much that hopefully this won’t be a problem.  Also it was nice to not have to worry about unsolicited advice while I worked out and now that might be a new pet peeve.

This little lady has been around since I was 18.  She was the queen of my mom's house.  When we lived together we would have-it-out just like real sisters.  She was stubborn and so am I.  But even though we sometimes had our differences she was truly an adorable fluffy little fur ball and we will all miss her so much.  

RIP Gabby (aka Gabbster aka Gremlin aka Princess Pea)
