22 week bumpdate

How far along? 22 weeks

Weight gain/loss: 127 lbs. Which means I lost a pound in the last week? Not sure how that happened with all of the Nutella I've been eating! Up 9 lbs. total.

Feeling: Exhausted and achy. The sciatica has picked up again, unfortunately. I think baby girl has wedged herself right on a nerve that shoots down to my left butt check :(

Maternity clothes? Having a bump in the summer is so much more fun than the winter! I am loving my new tops and dresses. More to come on this top - my new favorite - later this week.

Sleep: I'm consistently getting 8 hours a night and I am so thankful.

Food cravings: Nutella: I've eaten an entire jar in a week. That's probably a bad thing. I'm running out of things to spread it on, too. White bread, graham crackers, I even tried marshmallows...

Movement? More and more! Sometimes it feels like there's an octopus in there; I just don't know how she can punch and kick so many different places at once. An ultrasound would have shown if she had extra legs, right? ;)

What I miss? Sleeping on my right side and back. I am used to tossing and turning all night and staying put is unsatisfying.

Best moment this week: Stumbling across a gelato place just 2 blocks from our house that we thought was closed for remodeling! I had some amazing chocolate concoction and Mike had hazelnut and coconut (interesting combination, I know).

What I'm looking forward to: Mike's family is coming to next weekend! So excited to see them and have a few extra hands with Carina ;)

Next Appointment: OB appointment on June 13th. I can't believe it's only a matter of time before I'll have biweekly appointments.

Milestones: You can now see and feel her kick from the outside! Mike can't get enough of it.

At 22 weeks with Carina. Almost identical bumps, don't you think?
