Bumpdate: 22 Weeks

size of the baby: spaghetti squash

total weight gain: 14.5 lbs. - same as last week. That is a huge relief to me because I was so freaked out by my "growth spurt"! 

gender: Baby Girl - Miss Olivia Rose 

maternity clothes: I really want it to warm up so that I bust out all of my maxis. I have plenty of great stuff to wear, a lot of it is spring & summer though. If I can just get through this month... 

movement: Eric still hasn't felt her. I swear it's him, not Olivia. 

sleeping: just fine...

missing: my dress collection. I have two more formal events this week & nothing fits me. Finding cute, reasonably priced maternity dresses is a challenge, especially when I rarely get dressed up & didn't think far enough ahead to rent one. Thankfully, I am squeezing myself into a larger size of a regular dress that I borrowed from a friend. 

craving: ice cream. I already have plans to go get some of the good stuff at Cold Stone this weekend! 

exercise: I'm adding this category, because I feel like it's been a huge part of my pregnancy this time around. I hit over 10,000 steps on my FitBit 5 out of 7 days, so I'm feeling good about myself! I know I'll have to adjust my goals as time goes on, but for now, I aim for 10,000 steps a day & it's working well for me. 

symptoms: Peanut butter is definitely triggering my heartburn, which makes me really sad because I love PB. Fried food is definitely my other trigger. I'm doing really well avoiding the fried foods (I don't eat them very often anyways) but PB is a serious staple in my diet, so I've started carrying my Tums with me again. 

Ella: is in love with our new Apple TV. We decided to get rid of our second satelite box to save money & instead purchased the Apple TV. She absolutely loves that I can pull up all of her shows on Netflix (something I've always been able to do, but rarely did) and the WatchDisneyJr. app. 

looking forward to: Spring Break. It's another week away, but I'm really looking forward to it. We have some fun things planned already & Ella is going to go to daycare two days too, just so I can get some appointments out of the way. Warmer weather would be nice too... 

best moments: 
  • We were able to get outside & take a few walks this week! Charlie & Ella are all about the warmer weather. We're so ready to get back into our nightly routine of walks after dinner. 
  • I had the best time at my in-law's house last weekend. It was super laid back with lots of family time - just what we all needed. 
  • Our crib is on it's way! I can't wait for it to arrive so that Ella's old room will finally start to feel like a nursery again!
