PREGNANCY UPDATE - 22 WEEKS

 

In case you missed my instagram post on Christmas, we are having a GIRL! I am so excited and could not believe it when I saw the color pink! I never thought I would have a girl, I have always envisioned my Husband with a little boy (which is what we have) so I was unsure of what I was going to have this time around. I am most excited for hair bows, a mini me and all things girly! Right now our house is full of dinosaurs and video games so it's exciting to think there will be dolls and barbies in the mix soon. 

We do not have any names picked out and I am being extra picky. My Husband has two names that he likes but I am not sold! I think once we decide we will just keep it to ourselves until she's born. 

Here's a little update with where I am at with Baby Number 2! 

How Far Along? 22 Weeks

Weight Gain/Loss: +6lbs

Sleep: Lots of tossing and turning during the night and I go from being too hot to a little cold. I don't take naps during the day either. 

Best Moment This Week: Looking forward to having a very in-depth ultrasound tomorrow! 

Movement: Anytime I bend over to put on my shoe or grab something I get a punch or a kick near my belly button! It's so funny but she seems very angry each time haha! 

Food Cravings: Pineapple, Orange Juice and MEAT! So random! I can't get enough OJ and it must be iced! I eat the same thing for breakfast everyday (half a bagel with cream cheese, extra toasted and two scrambled eggs) for the last I don't even know how long so I noticed around 11am I am getting hungry so I added another egg white and it's been doing the trick. I am normally a big snacker but with this girl I am not a snacker at all! It's so weird not munching on chips it's like I forgot about them! 

What I Miss: Wine and Mimosas! I found some alcohol free wine so I've had that but it's a little too sweet for me. 

Stretch Marks: Some tiny ones here and there but they were from Mav so I don't think there are any new ones, fingers crossed! Finally got some cocoa butter the other day - I've just been using whatever lotion! 

Belly Button: It's FLAT! So weird but normal for being 22 weeks. 

Wedding Rings: Still fit the same :) 

What I look forward to: I love looking at nursery ideas and big headband bows! I am going to paint the crib that was Mav's - it's currently dark espresso colored wood. Thinking I want to do a matte vintage gray color. 

Exercise: Well this is no secret that I am not very active, I just try not to sit down all the time and to keep my self busy with things so I am always on the go/moving from laundry to wood projects, target runs, walk around the block, groceries, park dates, etc. I am excited to start PiYO once she is born, I already purchased the DVD's and have watched some so I know what to expect! 

That's it for now, just wanted to update you guys! If you have any questions/comments/ideas please leave them below for me :)
