Little man loves the click of the camera and wanted to get in on the action this week. 22 Weeks last Thursday.
At 22 weeks we are busy getting you room ready. I’m drawing up sketches and researching what and where I want to purchase items for your room. I love doing this. Your daddy thinks it sounds like a lot of work I broke the news to him that he will be painting again. He hates painting, but will do it for you! Your brother loves touching my outtie belly button. He giggles mostly because it tickles me so I laugh. It gets us all laughing.
People keep asking if we have a name for you. To be honest, we haven’t even begun talking about it. Last time we waited until we found out we were having a baby boy, so no girl names were ever discussed. I’m thinking I will want to see your face before deciding on a name for sure like we did with your brother.
I love your movements that are happening frequently now.
Last Thursday marked 22 Weeks for baby girl and I. It was a rough day. I was definitely feeling the hormones and cried three times that day. Once I cried just because I looked around at how messy my house was. So messy it reduced me to tears. After going to bed early, the next day was much better. I’m normally not an emotional person. The husband loves all of this of course.
Cravings: Fruit (apples, berries, bananas)
Weight Gain: 7.5 pounds
Symptoms: Emotional, some vegetable aversions still, tired at the end of the day, back aches are starting already
Exercise/Workouts: I definitely have to wear my Gabriella maternity support belt now. I’ve actually been wearing it on every run for the past four weeks. It is a life saver. I’ve been #rwrunstreaking strong (and posting daily updates on Instagram @sneaksandstilettos and my facebook page-Sneaks and Stilettos), but missed my first day this week because I was not feeling great. I tried running on two different occasions on that day and neither time did it feel right, so I listened to my body and didn’t run further. My comfortable pace has slowed down by a minute to two minutes depending on the day and the summer heat. Otherwise running has been going pretty well. The arches of my feet have been bothering me, but I’m hoping new shoes with more support and cushion will help. I’ve been getting in one or two weight sessions or 21 Day Fix workouts a week, but I’m hoping to get in at least three now that I’m in a summer routine.
Looking Forward To: Getting your room complete
Bumpdates will be posted roughly every two weeks! Stay tuned as I document my take on a healthy, active pregnancy.
