Pregnancy - Weeks 21 & 22

It would figure that the very next day after I wrote my last update about not feeling movement - I feel movement.  Not that I'm complaining!!!  I think what I thought was just gas was actually movement for quite a while.  Starting on week 21 it just kept getting stronger and more frequent. There will be days where I feel a lot of movement and some days where I hardly feel any.  All of it is very, very low.  I wonder what is poking me? A hand? A foot? An elbow?  It's definitely fun to guess.  Zach has felt it once.  He was so excited. He kept pointing to his hand and telling me exactly where he felt the kick. It was super cute.  Most of the time the baby is very stubborn though. I'll feel lots of movement and call Zach over then... nothing. We'll just keep trying!

It has been ridiculously hot here.  Like 100 degrees hot. Day after day after day! I'm doing my best to just stay inside as much as possible.  I did start back riding the bus. I took a two month break because I was getting really motion sick, but feel better now so I thought I'd give it a go.  So far it's alright.  It's nice being back with my "bus friends" and being able to take my glorious 45 minute nap on the ride home every night but the heat...whoo boy.  Luckily I didn't ride yesterday, apparently there was no AC! I would have died. Not that the AC on a normal day is much better.  I'm trying though, I told myself I'd ride at least 3 times a week.  So we'll see what happens.

Last Friday Zach and I went and registered!  I took the half day off and we had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings before heading to Target and Babies R Us.  I still have lots of stuff I need to go back and add, but I think we are off to a good start. It was super fun! Way better than registering for wedding stuff, that was torture! Zach loved it and was really great at helping me pick things out.  I know I've said it before, but he's really into this baby stuff and that's just so exciting.  I picked a good one :)

The following Monday, the 4th of July, we went and ordered our baby furniture. Apparently we like to make our big purchases on the 4th of July. Two years ago we bought my car that day!  The furniture actually came in a few days ago but we need to wait for my brother to help us haul it in his truck and I really need to finish clearing out the baby's room and clean the carpets! It's all happening fast now!

Overall the past two weeks have been really good.  Despite having a hard time getting comfortable and sleeping at night, I'm feeling really good.  We have another ultrasound tomorrow to check back on some things and I'm hoping all goes well.  Although the movement is sure reassuring!
