This post is coming to you just after my amazing trip to San Diego! That’s right… it’s our “babymoon”. This post is super delayed (so I combined two weeks) but I was so excited about getting ready for our little getaway, and enjoying myself while I was there, that I totally forgot about updating!
Weeks 22 and 23 were fun! The baby moves all the time now and I’m trying to figure out her little schedule. At first, I thought she for sure was a morning baby because she was so active from 8a-3pm. Then it changed and she would be active from 8pm-2am. That was fun… not. Now, it’s really up to her… but I guess it has been all along. Oh and we saw her little feet kick me from the outside. I was equal parts super excited & freaked out. I’m getting used to her crazy movements so my anxiety is beginning to reduce.
Now for my weekly update:
How far along: 22 & 23 weeks
Baby is the size of a: Papaya (22 weeks) + Grapefruit (23 weeks)
What I’m Feeling: Lots of movement, Heartburn, Indigestion, Back Pain,
Total weight gain: Ahh… I think I’m up 8 lbs from PPW.
Maternity clothes: I finally found pants! H&M are currently carrying pants with stretchy backs making them perfect for maternity wear, without actually being maternity pants. Best part is I can probably wear them post baby.
Stretch marks: No but my mom told me that if I keep scratching my stomach, I will get them. Is there any truth to this??
Sleep: Babymoon = best sleep ever
Best moment of this week: Erin feeling the baby move, seeing the baby kick, introducing baby to Grandma Mimi, seeing our beautiful, painted nursery
Miss anything: Days without back pain…
Movement: Lots! Active little baby ALL. THE. TIME.
Food cravings: Not really that excited about any food in particular.
