22 Weeks

Today was another routine OB check-up, and just like the others, things are going well. I'm finally gaining significant weight (8 pounds!) and Elliott is growing right on schedule. My belly really popped over the last week, and I have a feeling that my bellybutton will be popping soon too.

This past week also marked one of my first purchases and wearing of maternity clothes. I got a cute blue striped shirt and an orange shirt from Old Navy. I had bought a dress a while back, but I'm still not quite big enough for it. My belly-band is getting enough wear because I'm hoping to avoid needing maternity pants. Once the semester is over, I won't have to dress up for anything business-y, so sundresses it will be.

I have also been working on a number of crochet projects and my family's genealogy (mainly my father's uncle has most of the research done on my mother's side). Both projects, along with work, keep my mind occupied. The show runs two more weekends (it will never end!) and I can't wait to have my time back. Seriously.
