22 Weeks

Well lately I feel like I have grown a lot. In fact I feel that I look slightly bigger then some of my friends who are on the second baby. Not sure why that is. Matt and I went in for our 22 week appt last week. It was a sorta boring appointment with no sonogram but we did get to hear Addison's' strong and fast heartbeat which is always comforting. I asked Dr. Westerholm how my weight gain was coming and if I am on track. She tends to be very particular about weight gain during pregnancy. She said I've gained 13 lbs and since I'm over half way done and a "tall woman" she said I'm doing "perfect" (please use that term loosely). She said if I can keep a slow steady gain, 30 lbs would be right where I should be at 40 weeks. She said Addison is looking "beautiful" (she likes to use adjectives...) and is growing well. She measured my fundus which is measuring at exactly 22 weeks. We are so thankful as to how this pregnancy has gone so far. I hope labor is the same way....

I bought a little 8x8 pink polka dot baby album and am thinking about starting to create a keepsake album about Addison. The first page is going to be a picture of the pregnancy tests (all 3) that I took late that night in February when we realized we were expecting. I love to scrapbook and I think I should start it now while I have a lot of extra time. I know I'm dreaming when I say that I would like to do some scrap booking after she gets here while I'm on maternity leave. All, you mothers out there just busted out laughing I'm sure. Like I'll have time between the nursing, changing diapers and trying to sleep to do scrap booking....hahahaha.

My Mom kept a journal of pictures, thoughts, and feelings when she was pregnant with me and I love to go back and look at it! Such a good idea!
