This Texas Baby: Week 22 Check-In

BABY'S TASK FOR THE WEEK: Develop that sense of hearing. Your daddy and I both LOVE music, so I hope you develop a love of it too. I'm sure over the next few months you will be hearing a lot of music while you are still in my belly, and daddy occasionally "yelling" at you! He told me the other night, after he lifted the bed covers and yelled goodnight to you in my belly, that he feels like he has to yell for you to hear him!

SYMPTOMS: Movement, movement, movement! It's so crazy, when you move it feels just like a muscle spasm in my stomach. Sometimes it takes me by surprise and I go "oh yeah, that's baby moving!" I also rolled my ankle really good last night, I was just standing in the kitchen and BAM flailing to catch myself on the counter. It hurt pretty good and my ankle is still a little tender. Your momma is a very clumsy person so I am surprised I have not had more incidents like this, since all of my ligaments and joints start loosening up to get ready for you.

FAVORITE FOOD OR CRAVING: I really think I am going to remove this section. I keep waiting for some overwhelming urge for... something. But, nothing yet. That might not be such a bad thing since we live so far from town and a grocery store!

CURRENT MOOD: In one word "nesting". I am trying so hard to get the whole house ready for you. I want to get curtains,  up on all the windows (haha, after living there for a year and a half, now I feel the need to hang curtains?), I want to get the kitchen table area converted into an office space, I want to clean out and organize our bed room and then there is your room!

THIS WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY FINISHED HOMEWORK: Not too much accomplished this week. Actually, I take that back! We picked out your bedding, it is super cute and sweet and I am so excited about it! We also purchased a glider, ottoman, car seat and stroller. Slowly but surely we are getting there.

NEXT WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY HOMEWORK: Decide on paint for your room. Your daddy wants to paint next weekend!
