22 Weeks

or just about.  Techincally tomorrow will be 22 weeks.  As a former NICU nurse, I can feel 23 week sneak up on us and can feel a little bit of weight lifting off my shoulders.  Granted not tons because I know that a 23 weeker comes with tons of hard decisions and difficulties, but at least we are viable.

So 22 week update:

  • pretty much no food diversions.  Literally I could eat anything you put in front of me and pretty much want to eat anything you put in front of me.
  • still loving pickles but I have cut back a bit because I am getting some puffiness in my legs.
  • I have no full button, I pretty much stop eating just because I am tired.
  • My belly button is flat.  The only place it has to go is out
  • I definitely finally feel pregnant.  Getting some reflux, swelling, a bigger by the day swelling.  And yes I am plenty aware I have tons of time left.
  • I would do all this over a bajillon times knowing that it will get nugget here safe and sound
  • WE HAVE A NAME!    Luke Edwin Sour
  • on the 20th we will be 24 weeks and have to do the glucose test at the Docs.
I am in full baby room planning mode!  Look what has happened to the room over the past couple of days...

Half put together crib (the best husband in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)  and the guest bed is gone (best husband in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).   Now we need to buy the paint and get it on the walls.  The bedding is supposed to be a my parents house this week (best parents in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).  

This next picture maybe the cutest, sweetest, makes my heart jump for joy picture I have ever seen.
We have enough baby clothes and blankets to actually wash.  Love seeing all these precious little things folded up in the basket.  Luke officially got spoiled this weekend by my mom and dad and sister with sweet little outfits.  And plenty of them have giraffes on them!!!  I just can't pass up an adorable giraffe.

I can't wait to keep updating you on the nursery and hopefully doing some more crafts soon.  I am planning on doing a fun girls night party soon, so I will have some fun party pictures and ideas too.

PS my birthday is a week from today!


  1. Haha! You DO have a great husband! :) And I love the name! :)

  2. Girl you look great! I officially have half an outie belly button! lol it's hideous! And I'm the same as you, I can and do eat everything! My brain forgets to tell me I'm full as well. It's usually the fire blazing in my chest that tells me to quit eating! And I just absolutely love the name Luke! I can't wait to see more pics of his nursery!

    1. I can't wait to have more pictures! We need a picture update of your belly!
