Whew. Coming back from a vacation is more work than it should be. Luckily, we planned it so that our flight arrived Saturday night. This gave us all day Sunday to get organized and recharge. Week 21 was such a whirlwind, I didn’t take one bump photo, so I’m tying it together with Week 22 in today’s Bump Update!
Total weight gain: 13.5 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Oh yeah! I’m all about those maternity pants these days. I invested in a pair of high waisted maternity yoga pants and wish I could wear them to work!
Stretch marks? Not yet! But I’m not getting my hopes up, I know it’s still early. Keeping my eyes out for linea negra in a few weeks.
Sleep: I’m sleeping MUCH better! Other than vivid dreams, I feel like I’m settling into this changing body of mine.
Workouts: Yoga once a week and modified HIIT twice a week. Have you tried Alexa Jean Fitness? I’m hoping she launches a prenatal version…
Diet: Ugh, heartburn. I wake up with heartburn and it doesn’t stop all day/evening. Nothing I eat seems to help, so I’m trying to eat smaller meals more frequently and avoiding anything that may provoke it: onions, cheese, spicy foods.
Best moment this week: Our Anatomy Scan!! Seeing all the little pieces of our sweet girl makes it all so real. I’m obviously in love with her already.
Miss anything? Not really! Maybe sushi a little, but I get my fix with avocado/cucumber rolls.
Food cravings: Nothing 🙁 The heartburn kinda ruins that for me.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Just that darn heartburn.
Gender: Baby girl
Labor signs: Nope
Symptoms: Just a growing bump, intense heartburn, and itchy skin… Don’t I sound cute?
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: SO MOODY! My patience is at it’s worst and I can go from happy to furious at the drop of a dime. Luckily, I’ve been able to control it for the most part.
Looking forward to: Sharing the name we picked! Yep, we’ve decided already. I think we always knew what it was going to be, just felt like we needed to wait in case something else came along. <3
