22 Weeks {a pregnancy update}

mercy, this picture is awful, but I forgot to take one in the morning before church, so you get me all tired sleepy eyed after naptime.
How Far Along: 22 weeks, 3 days
Size of baby: 8 inches long, 1.2 pounds heavy. About the size of a Papaya
Total Weight Gain/Loss: ~10 pounds. (it's probably more than that, but I only check at the doctors)
 Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes. And if I'm truly honest, I mostly wear sweats and t-shirts. It's just WAY more comfortable than getting dressed these days.
Gender: It's a BOY! We're naming him Tyler Paul.
Movement: He moves A LOT. I mostly feel him moving first thing in the morning and then around 10pm. I love feeling him move around. It's my favorite thing about pregnancy.
Sleep: I've had nights of good sleep (and weird dreams!) and nights of not so great sleep. I'm a person who needs sleep in a desperate way, so I'm praying I have more days of good sleep. Everyone wins at my house if I sleep :)
Symptoms: My legs have started becoming super achy by the end of the day. I don't ever recall being this achy this early in pregnancy. So I have tried to lay low. I feel SO lazy just laying on the couch most of the day, but if I don't I just ache so bad at the end of the day that I end up being grumpy. 
What I miss: I miss being able to breath normally, and wearing normal clothes. As cute as they try to make maternity clothes, it just doesn't feel as cute to me as regular clothes.
Cravings: Salads and cookie dough (yes, I realize those two things completely contradict each other).
Food Aversions: nada. Praise the Lord!
Best Moment this week: Nothing really jumps out at me. I feel like each week I continue to be pregnant without complications is a blessing, so we'll just say that's the best moment :)
What I am looking forward to: Just being one more day and week closer to meeting Tyler!
