Things I wonder about at 22 weeks:
Why haven’t I felt Baby Meatball yet? Does my extra padding block the feeling of his movement?
If Sean and I choose a name with an uncommon spelling and alternative pronunciation, will Meatball get annoyed that his name is frequently mispronounced and misspelled? At least he can commiserate with his father on the latter.
Do all maternity pants sag? Is that just me?
Speaking of sagging, how do young guys do this? It’s so uncomfortable and inefficient for walking.
Am I super behind on prepping for Baby Meatball’s arrival? Pregnancy forums make me feel that way since all I’ve really done is clean out the room that will become his nursery and secured a secondhand crib that I still need to pick up. Color scheme? Theme? Nope. Far from that.
Will I come back to running from pregnancy as a better, faster, stronger runner? (See: Marie’s latest race report.)
When will I actually start to look pregnant rather than just looking like I’ve gained weight?
Why did I get rid of most of my pre-weight loss clothes? I could’ve gone through pregnancy without buying much.
Why did I take such a long break from running last summer and early fall?
