I though it would be fun to do a bump comparison this week. The pic on the left was taken at 22w1d and the pic on the right was taken at 21w6d (pregnant with Carson)! Fairly similar I think!
Baby is currently the size of a PAPAYA!
Gender: Adding another BOY to our family! Check out our reveal photo.
Total Weight Gain: I was +7 as of 11/25 (18w4d). At that point I didn't really have a bump so now that I have a bump I'm expecting to be up a bit. We'll see!
Maternity Clothes: My pre-pregnancy jeans are definitely too tight. I can button them but it's not flattering. I've been using my belly band but it's really pretty annoying. My maternity jeans from last time are way too big so I'm kind of in the middle right now. I'm on the look out for some maternity jeggings to fit my chicken legs. (Don't hate!)
Sleep: Sleep is good. It's sometimes hard to find a comfortable sleeping position because my hips/lower back have been hurting a lot.
Movement: Baby2 is still moving a ton! I can now see him moving on a regular basis which is so fun! I can't remember when I could first see Carson moving, but I know it wasn't this soon since I didn't even feel him until about 21w!
Food Cravings/Aversions: Hot chocolate was a big craving this week! I didn't need anything fancy, a swiss miss packet did the trick! I'm still craving fruit and smoothies too. Meat still does not sound good but I eat it sometimes anyway.
Best Moment This Week: Watching Baby2 move and wiggle around. It's so great to feel him move but it's even more special to see him moving!
What I Miss: Lunch meat. Jimmy John's is calling my name!
What I'm Looking Forward To: Sharing the name we have chosen!
Extra Notes From the Week: I had a few interesting nights. One night I felt SO sick I went to bed almost right after putting Carson to bed. I felt like I was in the first trimester all over again. Plus our Tums were old. :/ Oh, and I also spilled my can of Sprite all over the nightstand when the lights were out. :( Luckily I felt much better when I woke up in the morning! I also had a night where my lower back hurt SO bad I could barely walk. I felt like a middle aged lady who threw her back out (whatever that means). I had to hold on to things for support if I wasn't standing on both feet. I took a hot shower (with my husband as a supervisor because he just knew I would fall over in the shower). The shower helped and then in the morning I was mostly better. So weird though! (It's probably since I shoveled our entire driveway but don't tell anyone....)
