22 Weeks- Updates

Ugh, I hate that I haven't blogged in two weeks, but seriously, should I type if I have nothing to say? LOL I don't want to make people bored!

Well, things are going really, really great. I hit 22 weeks yesterday and I'm so thrilled to keep on trucking. I'm getting poked and bumped everyday by this baby. It's so weird. The best part is that the pokes and bumps keep me honest. That damn infertility still haunts me. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't worry something is going to happen. It is getting easier though.

Thanksgiving was interesting. I must admit, I don't like all of the attention I get from the families. If you know me in person, you know I'm rather outgoing. This attention is not something I like though. I totally know that our families are just so excited, but I can't even take a deep breath without someone asking me if I'm okay. I mean, should I really say, "The baby just kicked me in the cervix!"? Speaking of Thanksgiving, I gained 5 pounds since last week. Um, that's seven total, but 5 in a week? I multiplied 5 pounds times 18 weeks and let me tell you, that's not something I want to be a part of. Yes, yes, I know that's not how it works. But, it is funny! Actually, I've been really worried that I wasn't putting weight on, but now I feel better about it. Trust me people, I'm eating!
This week Mr. Later Than Most and I are signing up for our classes. We will be taking a full day of child birth education. Then we'll take a caring for baby and prenatal breast feeding class. Now, I know for sure that I will probably go to these classes and know all of the information. I mean really, should I really tell you that I have 11 baby books? Yes, they are all on pregnancy, childbirth, and feeding. I can't help it. I'm trying to stop buying books. I do read them all though!

As for doctor appointments, I have a regular checkup on December 21st. Then, I'll go back two weeks later for my GD testing. My next MFM ultrasound is February 2 and I'll be 31 weeks. . . I can't even imagine.
Lastly, do you remember Mrs. February 2010? She's the one who planned on getting pregnant in February of this year and it worked. Yes, she planned two years ahead. Well, she had her baby this weekend. He is one cutie. Mr. Later Than Most and I went to the hospital. I was so THANKFUL that I'm already pregnant. . . I would not have been able to handle this at all. It still bothers me a little. I hate that damn feeling! I sound like a jerk!

Here is my 22 week pic:
