22 weeks, 5 days

Pic is from 22w 4d


How far along?: 22 weeks, 5 days
Weight?: +~10
Maternity Clothes?: Oh yes!
Stretch Marks?: They’ve started!! I knew it wouldn’t be long. I have always had stretch marks. It’s not pretty and I’m not proud, but my mom has them pretty bad and I wasn’t expecting a miracle. Plus, I’m not ever planning on being in a 2-piece, so it’s not a huge deal. But they’re officially here. Actually, I don’t have any new ones, just a few that I’ve always had are starting to expand…oh, joy!
Sleep?: I just switched to a really full and fluffy pillow for between my legs at night and it is glorious goodness! I had been using one that was more firm, but the switch has made a huge difference! I haven’t been wanting to avoid spending $50+ on a pregnancy pillow, so this will do the trick for a while!
Best Moment of the Week?: FEELING the little B-dub kicking from the outside!! It only just happened today, but I’m in awe!! I can’t wait for J to feel it!!
Movement?: Over the past 2 weeks, it’s started getting more and more prominent. And in the past few nights, it’s been crazy!! I love it so much!
Food Cravings?: Okay, so in the past three days, I have had caramel fruit dip from Chick fil-A, caramel corn, Trader Joe’s dark chocolate covered caramels, and I made THESE caramel and white chocolate covered pretzels for the 4th. Hmmm…I’d say caramel is my current craving, dontcha think!?
Gender?: She’s still a GIRL!!!!!
What I Miss?: Not a thing.
What I'm Looking Forward To: More kicks from the outside.
Weekly Wisdom: I’m just really trying to enjoy every second. It’s going by so quickly!!
Milestones: Definitely the outside kicks. Also, we ordered her crib this weekend! HUGE weight lifted off of J’s shoulders!
How's Daddy?: Great, I think he was getting stressed about the whole crib situation so he’s feeling really good now that he has it ordered! Now we just have to hope it’s the right color of white (not too creamy)!
Emotions: So much better after my semi-meltdown earlier last week. Monday was tough, then to hear Rebecca’s news on Tuesday, it reminded me how precious this little gift is, but also how quickly things can go bad. I’ve had a really heavy heart for Rebecca, her husband and sweet Lillian. But their strength and faith is inspiring and I’ve tried to redirect my fears to enjoy this pregnancy TODAY. There hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I haven’t loved being pregnant, but sometimes my anxiety can get the best of me. I just have to remember that she is here with us HERE and NOW and that’s really all I can ask for.

    I absolutely refuse to shell out for one of those pregnancy pillows. I'm totally addicted to my $10 body pillow from Target.
