Bumpdate Weeks 21 & 22
How far along: 22 weeks
Total Weight Gain: Okay, so wow. I have gained twice the amount that I had with Emmy at this point in my pregnancy. After asking my doctor multiple times if this was normal (apparently it is), he went ahead and ordered my gestational diabetes test for my next appointment. Yikes. I am going to blame the copious amounts of sweets and water retention.
Maternity clothes: I am embracing maternity.
Gender: A still unnamed Boy!
Movement: Moving more and more, but still don’t feel him all the time.
Sleep: I am still up once a night and am about to the point where I can’t sleep on my stomach.
Cravings: Sooooo…see weight gain above. I am now going to be forcing myself to crave fruit and healthy things. I have had an embarrassing amount of cookie pie from Uppercrust (which I highly endorse)….so maybe I will limit that to once a month vs. once a week.
Symptoms: My emotions have been all over the place this pregnancy. I had a bout of anxiety earlier this week. Sigh. I also have been getting full super quickly. Yet, I still eat…you know, for the baby : ).
What I am looking forward to: Getting his room organized – that’s my big plan for Labor Day! I emailed the girl making his bedding, so I am hoping it all comes together!
Best moments: Seeing our sweet baby at the 20 week ultrasound! We got to see him in 3D, which totally freaked Tommy out. Ha!
Tommy’s sister and three kids also came to Tulsa to visit and they have a 2 month old baby and Emmy LOVED loving on her baby cousin. She wanted to hold her and kiss her all the time. Gave me a glimpse at what a great big sister she will be! She also has started talking about things being “Baby Brothers” (like her old car seat) and it is super cute to see her look forward to him!
Also, finally figured out the fabric for his bedding, so more to come on that!
