[How far along]

22 weeks, only 18 more!

[Size of the baby]

Leighton is as big as a Papaya! So around 10.5 to 11.8 inches and anywhere from 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.

[Weight Gain]

Still right around that 10 pound mark. Doctor said I was fine, but at first I couldn't tell if he was going to or not.

[Symptoms]

Stretch Marks/Outtie | Still holding out on the stretch marks, but I have never seen this much of my belly button. It has pretty much flattened out and by the end of the day is starting its transition into an outtie. So weird...
Steady weight gain | I would say so. I hit 10 pounds last week and this week I have fluctuated between 10.5 and 11.
Minor Swelling | I haven't noticed swelling really. However, I am inside and sitting at a desk all day. When I go out for a walk with Remi though I do feel my hands swelling by the end.
Back Aches | Yes, yes I have back aches. Actually they are more of rib aches right now. I just never feel like I can get my back straight enough to give my ribs space anymore.
Hair Growth | Uh huh, on my belly. I'm not a fan, but I am also terrified of shaving it so I am just dealing with the fuzziness.
Trouble Catching Breath | Yup again. Walking up the stairs makes me sounds like the most out of shape person ever. 

[Sleep]

My dreams are still vivid and crazy as ever. Last night I dreamt that Nate and I and some friends went to Vegas and a gentleman's club took his picture and made put it on their advertising. Then my friend's husband became a polygamist and found another wife and they inherited a baby. Crazy stuff people. Meanwhile, I am still getting up to go to the bathroom at least once or twice before I wake up for real in the morning, and I am exhausted until I lay down and then I can't sleep. Hooray!

[Gender]

We are having a little boy! The reveal story is here

[Maternity Clothes]

Nope still holding out. I am starting to get really uncomfortable in some things though so i am really am buying things before we go to California (bra, shorts and a bikini)

[Craving]

Donuts, always. Seriously for the last month I have been wanting just a really good donut, and although I have had one or two they have never been as good as the one I am wanting. Rise and Roll please.

[Feeling]

Lately I am feeling like this is going so, so fast! Nate and I were talking and we are both just in shock that in 18 weeks (or less) we will meet our little boy. Those weeks are going to fly by too with weddings, trips, showers and more vacations planned throughout.

[Random]

I truly think Remi is starting to sense that I am pregnant or at least that something is going on. Lately he has been super protective over me (huffing and occasionally barking while never leaving my side)  when strangers come around and he never did that before. Also, this week he has started sniffing my stomach when I am laying down by him. It is the cutest thing and he is going to be the best big brother ever! Did anyone else notice their dog getting protective throughout their pregnancy?
