Well first and foremost let me introduce you to this guy! I shall call him Mr. Snoogle. He allowed me to get a pretty decent night of sleep last night!
While it is a bit cumbersome when you want to flip from one side to the other with Mr. Snoogle, he makes it so you are more comfortable in one position longer so you don't spend the night tossing and turning. I give him two thumbs up! Between him and the earplugs hopefully I will start getting more rest. Kenny will just have to get over the feeling of having a third person in the bed because that is how big Mr. Snoogle is. Thankfully we have a king!

Oh and I am listening to this right now. And like any good tween I am obsessed and loving all of it!
And I excited about this to! Will be popping this in this afternoon!

Alright onto the update...

How far along? 22 weeks and 4 days. The baby is weights 1.2lbs and is the size of a papaya. Which seems smaller than a spaghetti squash but whatever.

Total weight gain/loss? This is an incredibly sensitive subject in the Lacey household right now. Let's just say when I went to my doctor's appointment this week I made up for some lost time. And....I cried in the exam room. I am hormonal people! The doctor reassured me I was still completely on track with the average weight gain of 25-35 lbs. but so much so fast scared me. So no more Halloween candy for me!

Maternity clothes? Still loving them!!

Stretch marks? Nope! Thankful for this.

Sleep? As I already mentioned I think Mr. Snoogle is going to help. Because sleep has not been great. I watched an hour and a half of Project Run the other night at 2:36 am.

Best moment last week? All of last week was pretty good! I got to see my best friend in town from Seattle. Kenny was home from market. We squeaked out a win in Starkville. It rained! And I had a doctors appointment on Tuesday where I got to hear Elle's strong heartbeat.

Movement? Lots and lots of movement. Last night I made Kenny feel and we were feeling something so hard. And then it went away. It could of been an elbow or a knee but then she moved. It was weird.

Food cravings? Orange flavored drinks which I am quenching with Crystal Light orange bottle packets. Other than than no strong cravings. Food is good...but bad I learned at the doctor. Boo.

Gender? It's a girl! Elle Caroline!

Labor signs? No. I wouldn't know if I was. Ha!

Belly button in/out? My belly button has a mind of its own! Yesterday I got home and it was partially out. Ewwww! And this morning its back in. I guess its all how she is moving around in there.

What I miss: Not really missing anything these days besides, well, you know.

What I am looking forward to: Getting some of my stuff back for the nursery in the next few weeks. And Kenny's parents are coming in town and haven't seen me since the first couple months that we were expecting. So we are planning a low key weekend of football watching and hanging out with them. And of course a little granddaughter shopping maybe.

Non-baby related notes:
-Headed to Starkville to spend some time with my girlfriends tailgating and watching State beat Kentucky! It is going to be so fun!
- Rocky Horror Show Glee episode was amazing! I love that show so much!

The Rocky Horror Glee show was pretty awesome! I'm only almost 9 weeks along and can't sleep well at all! Toss and turn all night! I might have to pick up one of those body pillows.
