Bump Update #2: Week 22

22 weeks on March 19, 2016

22 week comparison with Lucy vs. Baby Girl #2 (looks like when I was pregnant with Lucy at 22 weeks, we were celebrating my 30th birthday/taking a babymoon on a Caribbean cruise)

How far along: 22 weeks & 4 days

Size of baby: About 11 inches, almost 1 pound, and is the size of a papaya or length of a spaghetti squash

Weight gain: 10 lbs

Maternity clothes: Nothing has changed here, still wearing all regular clothes except I did finally break down and buy a couple pairs of maternity dress pants for work because I'm sure I'll be wearing them in the next couple weeks

Symptoms: Already starting to get Braxton Hicks contractions (they started pretty early on with Lucy too), SI joint issue is still lingering so I haven't been running, and I've been getting an upset stomach a few times/week where I just feel so bloated & full I can't even eat dinner but seriously, all these things are minor and overall, I'm feeling good

Gender: Girl

Exercise: Teaching Spin/TRX 2-3 days/week (I've been subbing quite a bit) and also working out an additional 3-4 days/week on my own (or taking a class at System of Strength)

Food cravings: Sweets!

Food aversions: Nothing

Movement: Lots more movement now especially during the day; for awhile, it seemed like I was feeling her move mostly at night around 7:00-9:00 PM but I've been feeling stronger kicks throughout the day and when I'm at work

Sleep: Haven't had to get up at all in the past week and have been sleeping very soundly

Looking forward to: Starting to put together the nursery; I bought some new bedding and other items so I need to start changing things over from what we had for Lucy

Best moment of the week: Lucy was finally able to feel her little sister the other day while we were sitting on the couch together

I think you need to tell Todd it's time for another cruise!
