22 Weeks

Size of Baby: 11 inches and almost one whole pound! About the size of a spaghetti squash. Grow baby grow! This little guy is starting to get big!!

How I'm Feeling: Feeling great! I have a day or two every few weeks where my stomach hurts because it feels like it's stretching. Baby boy is growing bigger and bigger.....and so is my belly!

Cravings/Appetite: I feel like my eating is out of control. I eat too many sweets!! Since I cannot seem to control my sweet tooth, I'm compensating by eating healthy meals.

Clothes: Loving this fall weather and getting to wear my fall clothes!! Layering with a lot of cardigans these days.
Movement: I can feel him move when I'm standing and walking around now. Before it's always just been when I've been sitting or laying but now I feel him at any time!

Changes in Me: I'm in such better shape this pregnancy than I have been my previous pregnancies. I push myself on the elliptical every morning and it makes me feel great! I never worked out or got any kind of exercise during my previous pregnancies so I'm curious to see if working out throughout this pregnancy helps me bounce back quicker postpartum. Not necessarily in my waistline but the recovery process. My recovery with Campbell was kind of hard and it was even harder (or maybe I should say it took longer) with Bennett. Hoping for an easier recovery this time around and that exercising and being in better shape will make a difference.

Baby Purchases: Nothing this week but I'm online looking a lot. Just haven't found anything that's caught my eye. I need to start looking for a coming home outfit. Those are so special and always my favorite!!

Favorite Moment This Week: Not technically pregnancy related but yesterday it was so cold here (in the 30's!) and it gave me the warm fuzzies. It was a fun reminder that the drop in temps means baby boys arrival is getting closer and closer.

Looking Forward To: Saturday! We're planning on taking the boys to their very first Razorback football game. I think they'll love it.....for the first half. That's probably all they can handle before they get bored.
