22 weeks: Mike feels a kick!

Can't believe we're over halfway to the due date! Actually, when I look in the mirror (or try to find something to wear in the morning) I can believe it. The biggest problem I'm running into lately--I often get dressed at the the gym in the morning, which means I pack my clothes the night before...problem is, it's too late when I discover that something no longer fits or looks right, I'm stuck wearing it all day long. I do have some maternity things, but I'm trying to make my regular clothes last as long as possible...as I know I'll be sick of all the maternity clothes soon enough. Thank God for the Bella Band! And empire waist tops! And yoga pants!

I've been feeling the little guy/gal moving around pretty regularly for the last few weeks, but until Sunday night, the movements were too small to feel from the outside. But when we were watching the Super Bowl I felt some sharper than normal kicks (or elbows...who knows?) and sure enough, Mike was able to feel them, too!

On the name front...we're keeping our choices close to the vest, but we've pretty much decided on a girl's name...the perfect boy's name is proving more elusive, but we've got some strong contenders.
