twenty-two weeks

Hello everyone. So today is another week along in the pregnancy. Hitting the twenty two-week mark. So last week I did a vlog for my update and this week I am just going to skip a vlog. But anyway, if you watched it last week, you would know that life is a bit complicated at the moment and not going the best, but we are trying. I guess that's the best I can do, right?
Everyday is an up and down. I just wish things would feel secure and normal again. Until it does, it's rough feeling this way especially through a pregnancy when you are already filled with too many emotions and hormones. Marriage problems are not fun to be thrown on top of that.

But anyway..... so here is what seems to be going on this week in the baby bump:


Here is the belly photo for the week:

I took this photo of myself the other day with instagram and really liked how it turned out. However, I look sad which has been my mood for a long time now. Maybe that frown will turn upside down. Regardless I still liked the photo



How far along? 22 weeks {5 months}
Total weight gain/measurements: I lost a pound this week so now it brings me to a total of 9 pounds gained so far since the beginning.
Maternity clothes: Of course
Stretch marks? Nope. I never got them with my first pregnancy so none so far.
Best moment this week: Talking to some great friends helping me through a bit of a hard time. It means the absolute world to me and you know who you are. So thank you :) I love you guys
Miss anything? Breathing. Yes, I can't walk or sit without gasping for air now. I feel like a 900 pound man but this baby is really taking over my ability to breathe normal.
Movement: Nope, no movement yet. But I know baby is in there somewhere :)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really anything that didn't when I wasn't pregnant. Melted cheese has to be the biggest thing that has always made me feel like throwing up and still does. {I think this will be the same every week unless it really changes}
Gender: Surprise surprise! We will find out in October.
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: I feel as though my cervix is dilating...lol I know that sounds crazy but all the pain is down there. But I know it's nothing but growing pains.
Belly button in or out? In.
Happy or moody most of the time: Still been pretty upset all week. Nothing really has changed. I'm hoping for a bit of a happier week.
Looking forward to: A few smiles and hopefully we can have a nice weekend.  And I have my doctor's appointment next Thursday.

Also, I had thought about releasing the names we had chosen but since this seemed to be the week everyone I seem to know is pregnant decided to do that, I am now waiting until the six month mark to do our name reveal post. There is a boy's name and a girl's name picked out. However, I'm having a bit of a problem thinking of a beautiful middle name for the girl. Maybe I can get some help from all of you in the next couple of weeks.
