Total weight gain/loss: 16.5 lbs
Maternity clothes? for now they are very comfortable. I got a huge stash of maternity clothes from one of my aunts so I have a large selection but most of the shirts are still a little big, I'm sure that will change very soon.
Stretch marks? I'm hoping that cocoa butter works it's magic for the next 15 weeks. I still have none.
Sleep: I feel like I can never get enough sleep.
Best moment this week: We started the baby registery this past weekend!
Movement: She was very calm Friday afternoon and Saturday but she made up for it on Sunday.
Food cravings: nothing really
Gender: miss priss
Labor Signs: i think I've had a few Braxton Hicks but I don't really know what they feel like so I don't know if it's just the baby in an awkward position or if its really Braxton Hicks
Belly Button in or out? Not an outie yet
What I miss: Being active all day and not being completely exhausted by the end of the day.
What I am looking forward to: Our doctor's appt this Friday.
Weekly Wisdom: Babies are expensive!!! I couldn't beleive the price of some of stuff that you don't even get to use very often or for very long.
Milestones: less than 100 days!

Total weight gain/loss: 15 lbs
Maternity clothes? yep...I can't wait until we get warmer weather so I can wear comfortable dresses and skirts rather than sweaters and jeans.
Stretch marks? Still none, I don't know how much longer that is going to last though because my belly really seemed to grow these last few weeks.
Best moment this week: Setting up the nursery with Tommy. He's going to be such a great dad.
Belly Button in or out? Still in but getting flat...it looks kinda funny
What I miss: Staying up late, hanging out and drinking with friends...I think those days are very limited now.

We went yesterday to see a Maternal and Fetal Specialist to do a more in-depth ultrasound of the baby girl. He looked for the Choroid Plexus Cyst and said he thought he saw some reminisce of the cyst, but it looked like it was dissipating. He also looked for other signs/symptoms for other problems that she may have, but he did not find anything. He said everything looks good and he wants us to go back after 28 weeks to do another ultra-sound to make sure that the cyst has complete dissipated. The news was great and relieved a great deal of anxiety for both of us.We are both more relaxed and hoping for even better news after the next ultrasound.
There is one piece of good news - we got some more beautiful picture of the baby girl. She put on a show for us while we were there. She was not that photogenic and it seemed like the Doctors were interrupting her nap because she kept yawning and putting her hand in her mouth. The Doctor must have woke her up at one point while he was trying to check her feet for Mermaid Syndrome (where her feet could have been connected). He was trying to make her move her feet and he kept shaking her until she finally moved. It was pretty cool how much detail can be determined and seen during the ultra-sound. It was pretty amazing and we are filled with joy that there isn’t anything wrong.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 13 lbs.
Maternity clothes? About the only thing that still fits are a few T-shirts
Stretch marks? Still none :-)
Sleep: Not so great this week. I've been waking up around 1:30 and I can't go back to sleep
Best moment this week: How about scariest moment this week...hearing about the choroid plexus cyst. We'll know more tomorrow afternoon once we see the Maternal and Fetal Specialist. We just keep praying that its completely gone by now.
Movement: She's really acrobatic in the morning on my drive to work.
Food cravings: Pretty much anything. Boiled crawfish has been sounding good though.
Gender: Little Miss Priss
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? In for now, I don't know how long its going to last though. And every once in a while she kicks right near by belly button. It's like she's playing soccer with it.
What I miss: Not having my back crack everytime I stand up.
What I am looking forward to: Getting the furniture into the nursery and starting to hang things on the walls. Tommy has the chair rail hung and is almost finished with the painting. It looks great!
Weekly Wisdom: Leave it in God's hands.
Milestones: Only 1 more week until viability!
