22 Weeks-23 Weeks


*I am late on posting this, and instead of a 22 week bump, you get a 23 week bump!

How far along? 22 weeks
  • Baby Size: 1 lb, the size of a spaghetti squash
  • Weight gain: 6 pounds!
  • Maternity Clothes: Yes, shirts, leggings, and shorts! Still loving my maxi dresses, too!
  • Stretch Marks: None, I frequently put on tummy butter to prevent them.
  • Sleep: Yes, thanks to my bumpnest pillow!
  • Gender: Girl
  • Movement: Some, I can feel a rolling movement sometimes, and there are also a few flutters here and there. She reminds me of a coy fish in my tummy. * as of last night, at 23.1 weeks I felt movement on the outside! Her kicks are strong, and she likes to party at night!
  • Best moment this week: The hospital tour! We got to see the L & D rooms, the nursery where she won't have to stay, we found out that she gets to be with us the whole time!
  • Looking forward to: Summer break, today is my last day! I can't wait to sleep in, and really get started on her nursery.
  • Food Cravings: I've been enjoying sour cherry jelly beans again this week. I would also say that chocolate cake has been on my want list as well.
  • Weirdest food I ate this week: I still haven't had a crazy craving!
  • Anything making you queasy or sick:  I got a weird dizzy/faint spell while at the hospital, but nothing serious, or to make me sick.
  • Labor Signs: Nope.
  • What I miss: I'm just so blessed and thankful for this pregnancy, that despite some of my complaining I wouldn't trade it for anything. I know how lucky we are to be in this position. I'm thankful for every uncomfortable day, and I don't miss a thing.
  • Workouts: I just have to laugh, and admit that no, I haven't been working out, I'm too exhausted by the end of the day. Hopefully I can continue walks and have time for weights over the summer.

  1. Glad to hear things are going smoothly! Aren't those preggo pillows a lifesaver?!

  2. You're the prettiest pregnant lady I've ever seen. I'm truly wild with excitement for you, Catherine, and have said many prayers in hopes this would finally become a reality for you. Please keep us updated as often as possible. I know this baby girl will be just as beautiful as you were. I'm still in disbelief that gorgeous baby I carried around on my hip with a pacifier (always) is now about to become a mommy. Just doesn't seem possible that much time has elapsed.

    Love you much.
