How far along: 22 weeks
Size of Baby: Spaghetti Squash, though he was measuring a bit ahead at our last ultrasound
Best moment this week: Every time I walk into Rowan's newly painted nursery, seeing his perfect little crib and tiny clothes.
Weight gain: +12 lbs. total
Maternity clothes: Yes to maternity tanks, these leggings, and full panel maternity jeans. I splurged on this pair and they are so incredibly soft and comfortable! The weather has been warm during the day so I've been layering with a basic maternity tee and a non-maternity plaid button down.
Stretch marks: None yet!
Belly button in or out: In but starting to flatten
Wedding Rings on or off: On
Sleep: Meh, could be better. Eff you leg cramps.
Miss anything: Missing pumpkin beer and pinot noir (big surprise there)
Movement: Tons! This babe is pretty active but remains elusive to everyone but me. Every time I get my phone out to record it or Steve puts his hand on my belly, he stops moving!
Cravings: Any and all Halloween candy
Symptoms: We're in full nesting mode over here, folks. I think my husband even has a little bit of an organizing bug. I've been tackling every single plastic storage container, closet, and drawer, and loving it.
Also super emotional and can cry over the dumbest things, like this Budweiser "Friends are Waiting" commercial for example. Someone tell me I'm not the only one?!
Nursery: The weather was perfect this weekend so, using Benjamin Moore's "No VOC" paint in Grey Owl, I was able to help my husband paint. I did wear a sweet respirator mask and we opened the windows though, just in case.
I love this color by the way, we may end up using this in another part of our house someday!

The crib is officially built and I started organizing some things in the dresser. I never realized how tiny newborn diapers are! Oh my gosh, so cute!
Looking forward to: Our visitors next week and Asheville with my parents after that! And I'm selfishly excited to take our guests to our favorite restaurants around here... you know you're pregnant when your first priority is food.
