22 Weeks and Feeling Great!

Disclaimer: This is my second pregnancy.  With my first pregnancy my daughter was born preterm, breech and via C-section.  Due to my age, my medical history (hello, incompetent cervix!) and my daughter being delivered preterm I am being classified as high-risk.  Things could get a little crazy in here so proceed with caution.

How far along: 22 weeks
Total weight gain: 30 pounds still
Maternity clothes: Oh yeah, you know it.  
Stretch marks: No new ones.
Sleep: Not bad but my arms are starting to go numb while I sleep.  
Best moment of this week: Matt got to feel Vivienne kick for the first time.  
Miss anything: Things have gotten very stressful here lately, but it is all for the greater good and I will share at some point.  I do miss working out - I just don't have much time except to do a few squats here and there.  
Movement: Mostly when I am sitting or lying down.  
Food cravings: No, my hunger has slowed down if that makes sense.  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Anything with too much flavor. I'm still preferring bland food.  
Have you started to show yet: Oh yeah, there are times I feel huge and other times that I feel not so big.  
Gender: Female
Labor signs: No!
Belly button in or out: Still in.  
Wedding rings on or off: I took them off at the request of my husband who feared for the survival of my fingers.  
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy.  
Looking forward to: Taking our hospital tour!  Since we moved here from the West Coast when our first daughter was about 16 months old, we haven't seen the hospital where we will be having Vivienne.

Since we did not spill the beans on this pregnancy to our family until I was 14 weeks pregnant, there will be a fair amount of backtracking until I can get caught up.  Hang in there!
