22 Weeks

I've passed the halfway point and am now only 2 weeks away from viability. I always feel like I can breathe a little easier once I hit 24 weeks and the baby has a fighting chance outside of me. The other day someone posted on facebook how many Saturdays until Christmas and I was like, "Oh dang! This baby is going to be here before I know it!" So much I feel like I want to do ahead of time…really just organizing and purging some and getting a new car seat and stuff. But still. I feel like I have a ton of time left and don't need to get started, but I know it will sneak up on me.

I had my big anatomy scan a week ago. The tech didn't talk much, and I'm not one to ask questions, but I am assuming since I never heard from my doctor, all is well. At the appointment, the baby was laying transverse. I've never had one positioned like that, that I know of, so that's kind of fun. It also makes sense why I am always feeling kicks on my right side, which she confirmed is where the baby's legs are. The ultrasound was pissing the baby off after a while and it was really kicking away. That was the most I've felt it move thus far. The tech said it probably didn't like being pushed on. I had a hard time not finding out what Isla was at the scan. I even tried convincing Ian we should find out, but he held out and I'm glad he did because she was such a surprise. This time it wasn't hard at all. And, to be honest, I don't really have any huge feelings one way or another what the baby is.

Last time I went to the doctor, I was back on track weight-wise. I was glad after gaining a ton in the first trimester that I really hadn't gained any more weight. I really think it was just due to all my food aversions and me only wanting carbs. And now I am back to eating almost completely normal…I still refuse chicken and my body just isn't handling beans so I've cut them out. I've been able to feel the baby move around inside for a while now, but haven't been able to feel it on the outside until just the other day. No one else has felt it yet, as it really isn't predictable with feeling and such. Maybe in a few more weeks.

And just for fun, let's compare what I looked like at the same stage in my other pregnancies. With Connor, I was TINY. And I think I look about the same this time as I did with Isla.

In case you haven't been keeping up, here is me at 13 weeks and again at 18 weeks.
