Bumpdate 2.0: 22 Weeks



Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along?: 22 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Total weight gain:  I've gained a total of 16 lbs.

Stretch marks?: No visible stretch marks to date! 

Symptoms: I think I'm in the "Sweet Spot" of the second trimester. I can't think of any real symptoms other than a growing baby bump! I'm going to soak this up and enjoy it while it lasts!

Maternity clothes?:  For sure! Comfort is key! I'm happily realizing that I had some maternity clothes from the first go-round that are actually pretty cute. They fit a little differently this time around since the last time I was pregnant in July I was close to the end {35+ weeks}.

Sleep:  Aside from Huston's 5:00 am wake-up calls for breakfast {and then he very willingly goes back to sleep, thank goodness}, I've been sleeping well. I was even able to squeeze in a nap this past Sunday after I saw this sweet sight of both of my boys napping after they'd watched the ending of the British Open.



Mood: As our little family vacation nears, I'm becoming more and more "checked out" from work...and I know I've been grumpy {especially in the mornings!}. I know we're all ready for a little getaway from the realities of daily life. I'm hoping a little fun in the sun along with some rest and relaxation will be like hitting the refresh button...and put me in a much happier/lighter mood!

Movement: Our little dude is kicking/dancing around like a rock star in my belly. I think he has scheduled dance parties around 2:30 - 3:00 every afternoon and between 8:30 - 9:00 every evening.  Ryan was able to feel him move for the first time last Wednesday {right at 21 weeks}.

Cravings: One evening last week, I texted Ryan and told him he HAD to bring home BBQ for dinner because "that's what the baby wanted!" And it was the best brisket sandwich I've ever tasted! :)

Best Moment(s) of the Week: We spent some quality time with some good friends this past weekend. On Saturday evening, we went to visit the Roye family for dinner and check out their new home.  It was so fun to watch Huston and Cameron play together...we had several good laughs just watching them interact.  On Sunday morning, we met Rachael and Olivia for brunch at Breadwinners.  Again, it was fun to watch H and Olivia interact.  My favorite moment was when Huston gave Olivia "besos" {kisses} before we left. 



Worst Moment of the Week: This morning I locked Maria and Huston out of the house for nearly an hour! H sometimes gets upset when I leave for work, so I go out front with him and Maria to water the flowers as a distraction. Apparently when I slipped back into the house to leave through the garage this morning, I locked the front door behind me out of habit. Of course Maria's phone was inside the house, so she had no way to call me. Thank goodness our neighbors were home {who are gone 75% of the time}, so they were able to get in touch with me and hang out there until I could get home to let them in. Ugh...blaming this one on #PregnancyBrain

Looking Forward To: Vacation!!!
