Belly Pix...Finally!

I'm just going to get right to it.  Here's the latest belly pix with a little explanation.  First of all, yes, I am in the same shirt as the last belly pic.  Don't worry i washed it.  It is one of my favorite shirts, not to mention a lot of my shirts are getting too short and this one stretches forever.  I'm just not the type to go around letting this big 'ol belly catch a breeze.  If you are that type, no offense.  You are very brave.  So anyway, this one was taken at 22.5 weeks along.

This one I took the very next morning{22.6 weeks}.  Morning being the reason for this headless pregnant woman in the picture.  Is it just me or does my belly look bigger?  Maybe it's the shirt?  I also measured my belly and I am now 44 inches around!

In other news, there's not too much to report.  The babies are WAY more active.  They have been exercising A LOT between midnight and 1am almost nightly.  Their movements are definitely getting a stronger and more vigorous.  A little harder to ignore, but I sure do try!  It usually starts with one squirmy baby who then wakes up the next before going to back to sleep and the torch then gets passed to the other one before they are all asleep again.  I just hope they get this out of their system now so night feedings go smoothly for their parents.  Oh, and they have been getting the hiccups lately too.  :)

As for me, 22 weeks has hit hard and I am slowing down once again.  Routine things are getting more difficult.   Lately anything that falls on the floor or is in need of attention below my knee will just have to wait.  I've come up with a couple solutions though, Toes need to be painted-pedicure. A spill on the floor-call in the dog.  Toys on the floor- allowance for the kids for doing their chores.  I'm sure I'll come up with a few more solutions as I grow, but being a Mom you've gotta be creative right?  

I also have to say, my family has been really supportive through all of this.  I am so lucky to have them.  I am still in good spirits.  I really feel like it would be so easy to focus on the discomfort, but I think that would just make me miserable and being positive (for me) is the best way to cope.  It allows me to still be there for my kids and my husband as much as I can be.  So that's my game plan for now.  I have another week until my next doc appointment and ultrasound.  I should have more to report then!

You're doing great! Another one for things on the floor- a game! "Who can pick up the most (or the quickest if one item) toys on the floor? ;)

I'm all for the same shirt each time because then we can see the actual growth of the belly instead of, does this shirt make me look bigger. Even better, I say you put on that too short shirt and wear it the whole time for pictures, so then we REALLY get how big the ol' baby is getting. hehe

Love the pics! And yep, I just think it depends on the shirt you wear whether you "look bigger" or not. I think I'm just gonna wear nothing but black shirts now, lol.

You look so good... and VERY happy!! Yup, 22 weeks is where I REALLY felt it. It is amazing how hard it can be to just simply pick up something off of the floor. I had fantasies of running around the block just once, as weird as that sounds. So glad you have lots of help. Kids can be the greatest, sometimes =)

You look amazing! The white shirt definately makes your belly look bigger, or the babies had shifted. Glad you're still doing pretty good. Love the ways you have found to cope, hilarious.
