baby #2: 22 weeks

(It’s always windy. Every time!)_MG_1472Baby’s size: 7⅔ inches from crown to rump and weighing in at about 12.25 ounces.
Maternity clothes?: I made the switch to maternity jeans this week, which feels pretty amazing 🙂
Gender: A sweet baby girl!
Sleep: Kaya is still struggling to sleep, so we obviously are, too. When she cries in the middle of the night, I can’t seem to pry my body out of bed to go get her… All I can say is that Michael is amazing and has had a lot less sleep than I have. I also just want to add that having a body pillow is ahhh-mazing. My hips don’t hurt at all when I use it, but without it, it’s not fun.
Movement: She’s strong enough now that her movements can’t be ignored. I’m feeling her all throughout the day and I love it. She’ll sometimes kick/push on my hand when I touch her, and I think I might’ve felt hiccups a few times, too.
Cravings: S’mores… which is hilariously random, because apparently I wrote that on my 22-week update with Kaya, too.
What I miss: Nothing really besides sleeping.
Anything making you queasy or sick?: We have all been under the weather this week, so my nausea has come back. Bleh.
Belly Button in or out?:In.
Exercising?: Ran 23 weekly miles. My bladder is really starting to notice how big she’s getting… I also sometimes feel sore on my right side, but that’s probably because she’s been sitting in a ball on that side for weeks!
Mood: I love this little girl so much already and am so grateful for her.
Best moment this week: Spending time out in the sunshine!
Comparison: 22 weeks with Kaya! I think it’s kind of crazy how similar my belly looks in both pregnancies so far!22weekcomparison
