Saturday night the kids and Manny took me out for a Mothers Day dinner. I knew that with having a big brunch on Sunday, I certainly wouldn't want a big dinner too, so we opted for a Saturday night celebration! :) We went to a local steakhouse that I LOVE! Afterward, we went to a local frozen yogurt place that I had never been too and it was DELICIOUS! I think my favorite part of the entire evening was just cracking up, at random moments with Manny and the kids, over just silly nonsense! :) You can't beat those belly laughs! :) AND, it started to POUR down rain while we were pulling up to the yogurt place and when Manny asked us if we wanted him to drop us off out front I said, "No! It's only rain! Let's have some fun!" and we sure did! We cracked up (and got drenched! ;)) as we ran from the car to the shop. As we left, the rain was even harder and once again, we had a blast running it. Sometimes friends, you just don't need an umbrella! :)
Now, here's my prego update for the week and a bunch of pics from yesterday (more to come, once my cousin posts hers :)
How far along? 22 weeks
Symptoms: still more tired than ususal, or so it seems, and I'm pretty hormonal...I know all of this is normal but my first two pregnancies were amazing, start to finish, so feeling even a little "off" just seems hard to me.
Weight gain/loss: Get ready to pick up chins up off the floor, but I'm guessing that I'm up a total of 9 lbs now. Yes, I went from about 0 lbs gained to 8 lbs overnight ;) but I'm still right in the "normal" range for someone who started off a pregnancy overweight (according to BMI standards). I'll have my "official" doctor weight on Wednesday, but I'm pretty sure it's about 9lbs total.
Gender: Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!
Maternity clothes? for the most part, just for comfort sake. I could squeeze into my pre-prego maternity pants, but why? ;)
Sleep: It could be better! :) I think I just need to stop drinking so much water before bed! That would definitely help!
Food cravings/aversions: nothing new or unusual
Movement? a lot!
What I miss? I really want a hot dog! :)
Best moment(s) this week: feeling the baby move, getting to spend Mothers Day with my amazing family
What I'm looking forward to: my appt on Wednesday
Next appointment: May 15th
My 3 babies and I ;)

Mia and Vivienne (as I looked at this pic I thought, "Hmmm, will another little girl be sitting on this step come next Mothers Day? We'll find out in 18 weeks!" :))
5 of the 8 great grandchildren (Angelina (in the white) is my cousin Tanya's beautiful daughter :)) They came down from New York to celebrate Mothers Day with all of us.
