Well, let's all just pretend that I posted a 21 week update last week, mmmkay?!? I have a fabulous excuse since we were vacationing with Hubby's family in Michigan, and I promise you...they are lots of posts coming soon about our getaway to Up North Michigan. But for now...the regularly scheduled bump update!
22 weeks and 4 days today!!
How far along: 22 weeks
How big is baby: Spaghetti Squash, 1 lb!
Weight gain/loss: To be completely honest, this is a little bit of a subject I don't wish to discuss. ha! I was a little naive going into this pregnancy that since I was in great shape beforehand that I would avoid a big weight gain this time around...hahaha! I'm honestly thinking I'll probably end up close to where I was with Elyse, but it seems to be showing up faster this time. I truly need to make a trip to buy some new maternity pants very soon...Bella Bands aren't going to cut it for much longer!
Sleep: Still going well. I've been drinking water like crazy so of course I have the middle of the night potty visits...but other than that I'm doing great!
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Yeah, please refer to weight gain/loss above. I've really been trying to keep healthy snacks on hand at home and have been keeping lots of fresh fruit and veggies in the fridge. I'm still struggling a bit with hunger, but staying hydrated and mid-day snacks seem to be helping with that. If there's anything I crave I would say that it's guacamole...which isn't the worst snack ever (as long as I don't eat 50 tortilla chips with my 100 calorie Wholly Guacamole cup!)
Movement: And...when is there not movement?!? I feel little kicks all the time and while we were on vacation I had my first Nora Kay booty sighting! While I was laying in bed with Elyse, my stomach tightened up on one side and became all lop-sided...sure enough, Nora must have had her booty right up in the air because my belly was hard as a rock in a small little area! Silly girl, I know you're there and it's so nice to be reminded on a regular basis!
