Week 22

Week 22, here we are! 
Size of Baby // According to My Pregnancy app, M² is the size of a spaghetti squash, or about 11 inches long and almost one pound.  

Cravings // I'm not really craving anything at this point. Just all the food all the time. I've also taken to making a smoothie every morning, and it's action packed with all sort of goodness:
1 cup raw spinach
1 1/2 cups mixed fruit blend (frozen)
1 banana
1/2 cup non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 cup non-fat milk
1 tsp ground chia seeds
1/2 tsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
SO GOOD and so filling!
After filling up on that I don't feel nearly as guilty for not being able to choke down my prenatals (but I have found the gummy Flintstones that so many suggested - thank you! - have been very manageable). 

Symptoms // Those pesky Braxton hicks. I also have terrible round ligament pains on my right side. 

Miss Anything // The ability to move quickly from point A to point B. Sipping cold adult beverages on the patio. Sleeping soundly through the night. 

Sleep // Ha. See above. I can't make it through a night without peeing multiple times. So annoying. 

Clothing // Aside from the maxi dresses that are forgiving around my midsection, and my workout pants, it's maternity clothes from here on out. 

Best Part of the Week/ Looking Forward To… //
1. This week I was lying down with Marcus, trying to get him to nap, when M² really got to moving around. I put Marcus' hand on my belly and we just laid there for a bit feeling the little lady give kicks and jabs. Marcus proclaimed, "I feel my little sister moving!" And he's since asked me to feel his little sister move. My heart explodes.  
2. At the moment Scott and I are probably off hiking around in Yosemite, and I can't wait to share all about our little Babymoon!
3. My mom is in town, and while she's here I hope to make great strides in both Marcus' big boy room and the nursery.

Have a great weekend!

  2. You look radiant -- happy babymoon :)

  3. your mom is going to make that room into the most coolest room i have ever seen. i am already so jealous!
    TIME IS FLYING BY. didn't you JUST tell me?!?!

  4. Enjoy having the time with your mama!!

    I miss those adult beverages too....soon though!

  5. That is so cool that Marcus got to feel her move!!

  6. Everything's moving right along! So fun and exciting to watch! And how nuts doe it sound that the baby's already 11 inches long?? Doesn't that seem crazy and bizarre and little scary that an 11" long 'thing' is in there taking up residency? :) My mind works in weird ways, ha ha!

  7. Yayay talk about accomplishments when mama is in town! No one gets it down like mama! Can't wait to hear about the babymoon and progress!

  8. Look at you and that little baby belly! LOVE it!
    Hope you guys are having the BEST baby moon! While we will definitely be missing you at the Angels game tomorrow, I hope you have so much fun!!!

  9. Hope you have fun on your Babymoon! Also, Marcus is adorable!

  10. Hope you're having fun in Yosemite!! Arizona is awesome! I forgot how lovely vacations without kids can be!! But man, do I miss those kiddos so badly!

  11. It looks like you had a wonderful time! There's always something magical about a babymoon.

  12. you look wonderful in that shirt/skirt combo! Have you tried taking your pre-natals at night? That's what I had to do bc they made me sick. In fact even now I still have some viatmins/supplements I have to take at night post kid (thanks callie!). That smoothie does sound delicious -- I might have to try it! Espically now since I have chia seeds and flax as I'm getting ready to make those snack balls you shared a few months ago!

  13. I love that he is so excited to feel her move!

  14. I am SO GLAD you two got to do this and that you had a fun time.
