22 Weeks (and counting)

I know that many of my loyal readers will be anxious to hear about my latest pregnancy issues. Give the people what they want I say!

- When I went to the doctor last week I had gained 9 Lbs since my previous visit. (At the previous visit I had only gained 1 lb. Said my doctor, "Maybe we weighed you wrong last time.....")

- My belly button is already half sticking out. WTF? This is not supposed to happen until at least the 3rd trimester.

- In pleasant news, since I bought my expensive wonder sandals I haven't had a single foot cramp.

- Husband located my maternity pillow from last time. For those of you who have never seen one it is sort of a giant, "J" shaped thing. Between that and the pillow for my back it is a lucky thing we have a king sized bed!

- This may be a little TMI, so if you have delicate sensibilities please go ahead and skip down. But holy crap am I constipated. (this happened with Miss D too) I am popping Colace like it's candy, not to mention taking DHA supplements which are supposed to help and drinking tons of water. I am afeared I am going to have to take the next step and go to eating nothing but roughage and whole grains. Flax seed maybe? gah.

I had a thought yesterday that in addition to decorating Miss D's new room, (She will be taking over the guest room) I am going to need to "butch up" the baby's room. It's pretty girly in there.

Uh huh - I slept in a girly room as a baby and look how I turned out. Gah! It's so hard to type with a limp wrist! :-)

I can show you the pictures of me before I delivered Jonas, but I gained wait so quickly and was soooo much bigger than with Ella. By 39 weeks I begged my doctor to induce - I couldn't take it anymore. By the way, he turned out to be a 9 pounder. You could be growing a pretty healthy size boy in there, too. Lisa

The whole pregnancy experience seems so difficult. Though I know the outcome can be so rewarding.

I love that J pillow. What an awesome creation. Why the hell did it take so long for someone to come up with it?

Send a picture of the room to Stacey and she could give you ideas. They just painted blue over the pink stripe on the walls and it was a boy's room.

Forgive my cluelessness, but is a 9lb. weight gain good or bad at this point?

have you tried all-bran? works a charm for me (sorry little tmi there from me too I guess).

Jason - HAH!
