22 week baby update!

Happy Friday!  My weekend started yesterday at the end of the day and goes until next Tuesday morning!  Happiness and cheers all around!  Yeah for the weekend!! It’s time for another baby and bump update!

How far along: 22 weeks

Total weight gain: Truly no idea.  My last weight check was at 18 weeks but I head back to the doctor on Monday and will know more then.

Maternity clothes: All the time!  Of course, I still love my long open sweaters! However, even my pre-pregnancy sweater dresses that I thought I could pull off don’t really work anymore!  My favorite maternity item is maternity leggings!  I could wear them every single day!

Sleep:  OK– I’m getting up once and sometimes twice to use the bathroom.  Exhaustion is  still hitting me hard by 7pm.

Exercise:  Jogging has been my form of exercise and I love it!  I do about 3 miles 4 days a week and on other days do other cardio and weights.  On occasion I feel the stretching sensation.  I take walking breaks as needed too!  I just started wearing this amazing Belly Sports Bra from Baobei Maternity.  What a difference it makes!

Miss anything: My time at the Dailey Method.  While it’s a totally pregnancy safe workout I just haven’t had the time to fit it into my schedule.  I went a few times in the first trimester and then a few more times around weeks 14-16 but right now I am getting my exercise from my home gym and the YMCA.  I’d also love to be able to stay awake past 9pm…or 8pm if I really wanted to be honest!

Movement: This baby is super active!  If I look closely enough I can now see my belly move when he/she kicks.  Active times are mostly in the evening.  I tend to be “woken up” by kicks at least once in the middle of the night as well.  This baby is a strong little sucker!

Food cravings:  Hummus and celery!  I could eat it all the time!!  Hardboiled eggs are still my thing too plus a yummy bowl of soup!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Fish… oddly enough the thought of  chocolate or dark chocolate is a total turn off right now too.  I am sneaking chicken back into my diet through chopped salads and soups.  I still can’t stomach a piece of chicken though.

Have you started to show yet: Hmm– you tell me!??!

Gender: Nope- it’s going to be a complete surprise and right now I really don’t have any strong feelings towards boy or girl.  This pregnancy is completely different then my one with Sara but who knows if that means anything.

Wedding rings on or off: On

Looking forward to:  The long weekend!!! I’m not working today and we all have Monday off.. Plus the Hubs and I have a date night in the city tomorrow night!  It’s going to be a great weekend

What are you doing this weekend?

    My weekend consists of taking my favorite five year old granddaughter to Goebbert’s Farm,watching her play soccer with other five year olds, a fun sleepover and watching her making chocolate chips pancakes with her Pa. Life is good! Enjoy your weekend. 🙂

  3. I miss that feeling of the baby moving around inside, truly there is nothing else like that in the world. Part of me would like to experience it again, and then I look at my two boys beating the tar out of each other and I think, nah, this is all I can handle 🙂

    Glad you are feeling better. I’m sure that at some point you will want fish again:)
    Sadly, I get up 1-2 times every night and I’m not pregnant.
    Enjoy your long weekend!!!

  5. One of my favorite parts of being pregnant was feeling movement. I could sit and watch my belly for ever. Especially later on when you could pick out elbows and feet!
