Week 22 Bumpdate

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM

How Many Weeks: 22 weeks! One thing I read said 22 weeks is 6 months pregnant but when I do the math week 24 is 6 months. I know, does it really matter? Yes it does. What's cool is my due date is exactly 4 months from yesterday! 

Size of Baby: As long as a Spaghetti Squash and weighs a little over a pound.

Gender: Baby Boy

Movement: I feel him everyday. Mainly when I need to eat, after I eat, when I lay down to go to sleep at night, when I'm watching TV, you get the idea, all the time. But I still find myself freaking out a little on the inside if like an hour has passed and I haven't felt him. The life of a worrier. I can always tell when he's on my bladder because for a few seconds I'll have to pee SO BAD and then it'll pass. 

Sleep: Pretty good I guess. I get up to use the restroom 3-4 times but am able to fall back asleep pretty easily. I'm still sick of sleeping on my side and actually woke up last night counting down the months when I can sleep on my stomach again. I'm starting to get hot when I sleep too and it doesn't help that I have my Snoogle in the bed, Pixie at my feet, why she has to be at MY feet when we have a King Sized Bed is beyond me, and then Theo putting his arm around me, oh and then a stomach protruding out, I'm like can I have some space please?!

Maternity Clothes: Wearing maternity shorts, dresses, and now bathing suits but also mixing in some normal looser fitted tops.

Weight Gain: I'm going to guess around 8-10 lbs but I'll find out next week for sure.

Symptoms: Stuffy nose in the morning, my left eye lid has been twitching a lot which is weird, acne, hungry all the time, lower back hurts, pee 100 times a day. Really though I feel great. :)

Cravings/Aversions: Chocolate peanut butter ice cream, anything sweet. Aversions: Not really liking burgers. That's the one thing I really just don't want to eat. I'll eat steak but not a burger. So weird.

Missing Most: Runny eggs and Egg Benedicts. 

Nursery: We picked out a paint color and are ready to start tackling the room. Owl Grey lightened 25%. We had another grey picked out and painted almost the whole wall till we realized it dried purple! So luckily Grey Owl dries with a blue hue. Started organizing little man's closet. Which is pretty stupid of me because everything is going to have to get taken down and washed before he wears it. Oh well I was having fun.

Hubby: Is so wonderful. He walks the dog twice a day so I can get some extra sleep in the morning and at night because he's home before me usually. I'm very lucky that he does so much around the house, more than me actually.

Best Part of the Week: Feeling the baby move a lot and growing a bigger bump, never thought I'd say that!

Can't Wait For: My baby shower which will be sometime in August, our beach house next month, and 5 days off starting tomorrow!

  5. Cutest little baby bump ever!! Love seeing all those baby clothes in the closet!! Feeling the baby move is the best feeling in the world

  6. Aw love the little clothes and you look so dang cute with that bump! That's so funny everyone is on your side in that big bed! Is Pixie acting any differently around you like she knows something is up? I think it took Ruby a while to figure it out.

  7. You totally popped in the last two weeks - you look fantastic!! I just started missing sleeping on my stomach too! I've been wedging a pillow under my bump and sleeping on it which is the closest thing I've found to be comfy!

  8. You are looking so sweet with that growing bump! I use my snoogle as a fortress so the dogs and Reid stay on their own side of our king bed! I am trying to kick them all of their habits before the baby comes!
