22 Weeks and Counting!

I am officially 22 weeks pregnant today!  Here's proof of the baby bump: 

Yesterday was our anatomy scan appointment.  We didn't see as much as we hoped, but I am not sure if the technology here is different than the US.  We were able to see our sweet baby boy, however, he was a little camera shy!  

We got a sweet video from the appointment and some great ultrasound pictures.  I will try to upload the video later - it's another long one so it will take a while to upload.

Here are two pictures from the ultrasound:

Sweet boy kept covering his face with his hands - guess he didn't want us to see his face just yet.  It was amazing to watch him move all around in there - he's getting so big!  He weighs almost a pound (435 grams)

Last night Rudy and I were watching my stomach bounce all around because our little ninja baby was kicking and punching so much.  It was way more than just twitching - it was like he was trying to kick his way out of there.  He's pretty active throughout the day and some at night, but luckily he does let me get some sleep.

Well, Rudy and I have been discussing names for our baby boy for a while now, but we can't seem to come up with his full name just yet.  We've decided on his first name, but cannot seem to think of a good middle name.  Once we figure out the middle name, I will post his full name! 

Anyway, here is some information from regarding the 22nd week of pregnancy!

During month five, the average fetus measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.

  • Now that he's got more developed eyes and lips, he's looking even more like a newborn.
  • He's sleeping in cycles -- about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they're probably those times you're not feeling any kicks!).
