Bumpdate {22 + 23 weeks}

October 13, 2014
how far along: 22 weeks, 2 days
Bumpdate {22 weeks}

size of baby: a papaya {10.5-11.8 in, 12.7-20.8 oz}

gender: a little miss!!

weight gain: apparently I had too much fun last weekend! up almost 11 pounds {to 138.8 as of this morning}

maternity clothes: definitely
stretch marks: really trying to slather on the Mustela! I know they say its genetics, but I’m trying everything!
rings: on, but getting a little tight after long, hot days or lots of walking!

nursery: hopefully we will get a little jump start in the next couple of weeks!

movement: all over the place! it’s like a dance party in there! I can feel her from the outside and a couple other people have been able to too!

symptoms: lower back pain has actually been much better last week! I find I’m losing my marbles a bit in the memory and emotional department, but I’m trying to hold it together!

sleep: eh…some nights it’s great, others {like last night} I toss and turn for what seems like hours without being able to fall asleep. in the early hours of the morning the aquatic acrobatics going on in my belly don’t help, but it’s a small price to pay!

cravings: lots of sweets! I need to go on a sugar detox!
aversions: nothing I can think of…

what I miss: sushi…had a bit of a craving over the weekend! I’m going to have to make a fried rice/california roll run soon to curb the craving!

best moment this week: being on vacation and really feeling her move all around! I was pretty much obsessed every evening when I settled down and she started dancing!

looking forward to: being home this weekend to get a jump start on baby shower plans with my sister and sister-in-law and maybe do some nursery organization!

October 24, 2014
how far along: 23 weeks, 6 days {oops, a little delayed}

size of baby: a grapefruit {105-11.8 inches, 12.7-20.8 oz} not quite sure if I get this comparison…that is a VERY large grapefruit!

gender: a baby girl!

weight gain: up 12 pounds to 140 {oops again!}

maternity clothes: oh yes! bought some cute tops at target and still wearing the couple pairs of jeans I got from the Gap or maxi skirts!
stretch marks: still avoiding them.
rings: on, but they do get a little tight after lots of walking or the morning after I eat a salty meal!

nursery: did a little bit of closet organization this week! yay! now I just have to find somewhere for the mountain of crafting supplies that is now in the living room!

movement: she is the dancing queen! I feel her all throughout the day and in the evenings its the most intense when I lay on the couch at the end of the day…LOVE it!

symptoms: I’m going to officially say “hanger” is a real thing {anger due to hunger}. I have a short window between “I’m getting  a little hungry” and “I need to eat now or I’ll bite your head off”… can’t help it! totally the baby talking!

sleep: sleeping well! just a couple bathroom breaks in the night…and as always I could sleep longer in the mornings! 

cravings: sweet, sweet, sweet!
aversions: not really anything, I’ve been pretty good this week.

what I miss: coffee with vanilla creamer! these chilly mornings just call for it! but a chai tea latte once a week  is doing the trick!

best moment this week: making headway on baby shower plans {everything is so cute} and finishing up some crafts for my sister-in-laws engagement party!

looking forward to: seeing Luke Bryan in concert this weekend! maybe I’ll convince the hubby that Sunday is a good day to paint the nursery too?!
