baby #3: 22 weeks


Baby’s size: About one foot long and almost one whole pound! Apparently, her facial features are done forming, and she looks like a miniature version of the baby we’ll meet in four months!
Maternity clothes?:
 I wore a few more maternity tops this week because they are typically much more comfortable than regular clothes… so why not? I can’t believe that some of these shirts fit me right up until the end of my last pregnancy… my belly already feels humongous at times, and I’m worried I’m going to outgrow everything! My shorts still fit but are a little tight when they’re fresh out of the dryer… maternity bottoms coming soon, I think.
Sweet baby girl!
Nothing major… sometimes my belly feels a little sore, but I suppose it’s just growing pains!
I’m getting good rest when I’m actually sleeping…
 Her craziness continues! My pregnancy app says she’s asleep for 12-14 hours of the day… well, I don’t have a clue when this girl gets any rest, because she’s already moving when I wake up in the morning, she has dance parties throughout the day, and she’s always kicking again right before I fall asleep. I cannot wait to meet this wild kid!
Cookies, milk, and pizza.
What I miss:
Running faster! I am getting slower and slower by the week.
Anything making you queasy or sick?:
I’ve been waking up nauseous, and then feeling sickish again around dinner time… For the most part, my appetite has been down and many dinnertime foods don’t sound appetizing to me. I feel like it’s so weird for me to feel this way again when I’m already so far along.
Belly Button in or out?: In.
Exercising?: 24.9 miles of running; 8.5 miles of walking. My longest run was 6.5 miles, and my Fitbit total step count was 103,071.
I cried reading the news this week… but there have been some very sad stories.
Best moment this week:
Going to the pool for the first time this summer!
Looking forward to:
Kaelyn’s birthday party next weekend!
