Baby Plum update - 22 weeks

Bob says that Baby Plum can indeed be masculine, and seems to really like that nickname, so for the time-being we're going to stick with it. I'm hoping to find a more suitable nickname once he's born. Maybe we'll just have to meet him to get an idea of a better nickname.

Baby Plum is extremely active. And his kicks and flails and punches are finally strong enough that Bob can feel them.

Little Elvis hasn't realized he's feeling kicks yet. He tried to sit on my stomach the other evening and for one brief moment, he actually succeeded. Baby Plum gave Little Elvis a swift kick as I pried him off the belly.

We've had a few more minor issues with this pregnancy than with the first. I'm currently battling my second bladder infection in two months. It's no fun. I read that they're most common from 16-24 weeks, so I'm hoping to be done with these infections in 2 weeks.


My belly is huge now, as are my thighs. I've decided to try doing some leg exercises in the evening to keep my legs from spreading any further. The doctor seems OK with this, as long as I don't overdo it. And hopefully the weather will be more cooperative, so I can get in more walks with Little Elvis in the mornings or afternoons.

No fun with the infections, hopefully those go away and don't come back soon. And 22 weeks, it's going by so fast!
