I started doing every other week bump updates when I was pregnant with Grace at 20 weeks. I never got around to taking a picture or writing a 20 week post about this pregnancy, so 22 weeks it is... sorry babe!
What Fruit are you // a spaghetti squash
Due date // March 28th
How far along // 22 weeks
Next appointment // have to go in for take two of my 20 week ultrasound next week. Someone would NOT budge so that we could get a shot of her whole spine. Regular ob appointment in roughly 2 or 3 weeks.
Gender // it's a girl!
Total weight gain/loss // up 13 pounds according to my home scale.
Swelling // none.
Maternity clothes // I've been wearing pants for awhile because... elastic waste bands, duh. I have more maternity shirts this pregnancy that are already in the rotation... but I am still wearing mostly regular shirts.
Belly button // in
Sleep // rough - lots of tossing and turning. My hips HATE being pregnant... have been sleeping with a pillow between my legs for months now. It gives me some relief but I still often wake up with insanely sore hips.
Food cravings // salads.. otherwise I haven't had anything major so far.
Symptoms // still pretty tired even though we are well into the second trimester. heartburn comes and goes fairly often so far too. I've also been rather grumpy with this pregnancy, just feel like my hormones are way out of whack.
Movement // late at night. I typically feel her when I get a chance to sit.
Labor signs // none.
What I miss // alcohol. There has been some really trying days lately with the toddler and alcohol would have been a lovely indulgence at the end of a long day.
What I'm loving // Grace. She is of course keeping me very busy. But it still feels like time is absolutely dragging. Probably because we found out at 6 weeks (which was really 5 weeks) and then had to repeat week 11 when they pushed my due date back a week. That's rough. But I'm loving that slowly but surely we are getting there.
What I'm looking forward to // Rob and Gray being able to feel baby B. And Thanksgiving dinner obviously.
Best moment this week // Rob unexpectedly having the weekend and then Monday and Tuesday of this week off. He will work tomorrow and then be off Thursday on.
