22 Weeks

Sorry for skipping last week, we were busy and I never got around to taking a picture. But a lot has happened in the past two weeks. Mostly my belly has gotten so much bigger.

Roger and I were looking back at pictures and we can't believe how much I have grown in just two weeks. At least now people can see that I'm pregnant and not just a stereotypical fat American.
The Boy With No Name is a lot more active these days. I feel him kick through out the day and when I lay down to go to sleep at night. Roger has been able to feel the kicks and even see them. I spent a while today just watching my stomach bounce around while he was kicking. He is now weighs about one pound and is almost 11 inches long.
Later this week we will go to the doctor for a check up and ultrasound.
I have spent a lot of time lately shopping online for all of the stuff we will need. Who knew such small clothes could be so expensive. My mom will be here June 1 and she is bringing a lot of stuff with her. I have mostly ordered clothes from the States and we are trying to find a car seat and a stroller here. Unfortunately people here just don't use car seats so most of the ones we are finding cost somewhere between $250-$400. Strollers are much easier to find and we shouldn't have any problem finding one in our price range. While on our quest for an affordable car seat we found a stroller/car seat set that was on sale for $1000! I guess for now we will keep looking and hope we can find something a little more reasonable.
