22 weeks!

YAY! 6 months! I don't feel that far along at all, which I'm fine with. I really think that the belly is starting to show more and more, even when I wear a t-shirt! I love it. It's so nice to finally be moving past that awkward stage where people look at you with this "maybe?!?" look in their eyes. Jeffrey has also been moving like crazy lately. I was woken up this morning to his crazy kicks and movements. My whole left side of my belly moved up this morning, which I'm guessing was his butt or something like that. That was insane to see. J and I just love watching all the little jumps and remarking how much stronger he is than he was just a week or so ago.

In regards to my post yesterday- I have a new OB. He was recommended by my Bradley instructor, so I'm pretty excited about it. I'm starting to regain confidence in delivery again- yay! It was such a relief to make an appointment. Although, it was not so fun calling to cancel with my old OB. Oh well- glad it's over. I'm proud of myself for overcoming my fears ( i hate dissapointing/hurting people) and doing what was best for my son. It's the first of many times, I'm sure!

My Baby
Your baby's got a while to go before his lungs will be ready for air and is practicing his "breathing" on the amniotic fluid—sucking it in and out of his lungs. Other highlights this week:

Fat production is in overdrive at this point (for the baby, not you! Well, OK, maybe for the baby and you). Your baby will basically double in weight over the next four weeks! You'll be happy to know the same won't apply to you.

Your Mini is starting to look more like a newborn as his skin becomes less see-through. His body is looking more proportional now, although his head is still kinda big compared to his cute little body.

Your baby is about 11½ inches long and weighs 1 pound, or about the length and weight of a Harry Potter book.

Yay for 22 weeks!

But I'd like to correct that at 22weeks you are 5 months pregnant (not 6 yet) - you are IN your 6th month. :)
