22 weeks and baby pool!

how far along? 22 weeks, 2 days
total weight gain: 17 pounds. seriously, this is starting to bug me... i know it shouldnt but...
babys size/development this week: this week the baby is the size of a spaghetti squash (which reminds me of katie and all her experiments with squash recipes last year haha). lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and tiny tooth buds are developing beneath the gums. approximate length 11 inches and 1lb in weight. 
maternity clothes: i think im going to need new jeans... or just continue living in my sweatpants. sexy. 
sleep: slowly getting better, im not getting up at all hours of the night to pee which is nice (im sure thats still coming)
miss anything? long distance running
movement? all. the. TIME! and i love it now. well minus when im trying to fall asleep, but ill take it over no movement at all.
food cravings? currently wanting BLTs all the time.
anything making you queasy or sick? nope
best moment of the week: finally feeling better, getting 10 hours of sleep sat night, pats win, and seeing family/friends last weekend!
name ideas: were back to the original picks we came up with... but our list still has 6 girls names and 9 boys names, just incase haha (not incase we have more than one baby in there, i promise its only one...)
wedding rings on or off? still off... im looking forward to having them back in my possession in 2 weeks
mood: ive felt better. 22 is my favorite number and i was really hoping to have a great week this week... so im trying to change my attitude. work has been crazy hectic with everyone having the flu but that has settled down. im not as tired and am trying not to get so down about the weight gain and lack of running... its just very different for me.
nursery: nothing new but got a few clothes hangers so i could get the clothes in the closet. mom and i are going shopping this weekend to get a mattress for the crib. and we started our registry (holy overwhelming!)
miles run this week: 3. another fail. this week will be more... starting today, and then looking forward to a few miles friday with michelle!

** baby pool **

would anyone like in on the baby pool that we started? its $1 per guess (limit of 5 guesses)... winner gets half, baby gets half! you guess the sex, the delivery date (my due date is may 19th), and the weight (extra info: i was born a month early and weighed 5 pounds 13 oz, ty... although extremely tall now, weighed in at 8 pounds 1 oz). just leave a comment below with your guesses, ill figure out how to do the money later.


  1. yay for us! Looks like the weather is going to be cold though... boo. Have your friend Sarah come if she wants to and isn't working. I got my stuff today--thank you!! I love the shirt and the socks! I can't wait to try them out.

    You look so cute as a preggo and you are more than half way done! So exciting! I want to guess but I'm going to think a little.. :)

  2. Yes, yes, yes I want to guess and I'm going to win!
    But I have to mull it over for a few days to pick the right choices ;-)
    You look super tiny. I think your scale is broken, seriously, I'd guess you had gained like, 4 pounds maybe.

  3. I'm no expert...christ I've only been doing this whole mommy thing for 5 1/2 months now but what I DO have is a baby registry list. My sister in law compiled it for me when I was in baby registry hell and it has since been shared with at least 4 other friends. I swear she should charge for this list, it saved me alot time and potentially wasted money. Send my your address if you'd like, I'm happy to share it :)

    As far as the weight goes...be kind to yourself, you're growing a human! It IS hard to gain weight, and it IS hard decrease your mileage (been there done that on both accounts) especially when everyone else around you is running races. Just know that your body knows what it needs to get the job done. Just make sure you get that Bob stroller and you and baby Sterling will be out pounding the pavement soon enough :)

  4. squash is pretty damn delicious.

  5. i am in...have to think a bit though so i will text you soon. whats the cut off for submissions though? I may procrstinate :)

    1. Or just submit obnoxious guesses :-)

  6. Regency period is the most sweet and unforgettable moment of a woman life. She lives in a dream world tn this period. She establish a logical world for her upcoming baby. She brings a lot of things for future such as toys, dress, child products etc. She like to choose dresses according to season. We can found a lots of example of such type of situation.
