22 Weeks prego w/ baby D2!

How far along? 22 Weeks 2 days
Maternity clothes? I did buy some maternity clothes for work. But, other than that I'm just using bigger shirts and some maternity shirts that I had with JD (most of which are worn and ugly or don't look good on me, but that's ok. :) fpr now. ).
Stretch marks? I think there may be 2 or 3 but its hard to tell because of the old stretch mark scars (even though they are mostly faded).
Sleep: Its getting better. I still wake up a few times in the night. however I usually fall back to sleep pretty quick. There is an occasional 2-3 hour period when I can't go back to sleep and I have to wake up at 6. But, that is not very common.
Best moment this week: Feeling the baby move at least 2 times a day!
Miss Anything? Warm weather!
Movement: It is definitely moving in there!
Food cravings: Not much... wish I would though so I would have an excuse to eat yummy things!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing!
Have you started to show yet: Yes! For sure!
Gender: Its a surprise!!
Labour Signs: I do notice braxton hicks occasionally. My uterus gets really really tight. Dr. says that is normal... muscles practicing.
Belly Button in or out? In. That thing runs deep, so I'm guessing it's not going to pop.
Wedding rings on or off? On... for now. They are getting tight though. :(
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: Looking for a new house!!! We will see if that is in God's plans for us.

Here is a pic from last week!

Boy or Girl?

So will baby #2 be a boy or a girl? I don't want to find out! So, unless I change my mind last minute, it will be a secret! Here are some predictions in the mean time: quiz said, Its a girl!
-Chinese Lunar Calendar, Its a boy!
-Drano Test, Its a girl! Or a boy... Depends on what color you choose to believe... the test came out yellowish... well, actually it didn't change color. (Don't worry I was very careful!)
-The Mayan Tale, mothers age at conception + year of conception = odd number: boy! 
-Acne Myth, girl! Sort of anyway, I have had a little more acne, but not a lot.
-Shape of mothers face, girl! Ick! I hate how round my face is getting! Ugly!
-Cravings, Girl! I haven't had any cravings really. However, I have been eating a ton of sugar. Bad me! 
-Garlic, ??. Yeah, I'm not eating a clove of garlic! 
-The old wives tales test, 53% girl! 47% Boy!  
-Hair on legs growing faster, ??. I shave my legs every other day so that's kinda hard to tell.
-Baby's heart rate at 18 weeks, 162 girl!
-Daddy gains weight or not, boy! Jesse is not gaining weight. :-(
-Wedding ring predictor, swings in a circular motion girl!
-Carrying high or low, I'm just going to say girl! because I can still button my pants. But, I could during my whole pregnancy with JD. So this is kinda a toss up. boy!
-Mothers age at time of conception, 26 in September girl!

There is this crazy lady that says that you can predict the sex of your next child by the hair line in the back of your previous child's head... Yeah, that sounds nuts! I can't tell by JD's hair because he just got a hair cut. But if you want to check this strange method out here is the link:

Another reason I think its a girl! is because the past 2 or 3 (or longer?) generations of Davolts, the male side, have had a boy first and then a girl for their second child. 
I could be mistaken but I believe Jesse's Grandma D said that Jesse's Great Grandpa Davolt had a son and then a daughter. Jesse's Grandpa had a son then a daughter. Jesse's Uncle had a son then a daughter. Jesse's Dad had a son then a daughter.

Don't tell Jesse, ITS A GIRL!! Well actually only Jesus knows right now...
