The Ravenous Baby: 22 Weeks

How far along? 22 Weeks + 1 Day

Food size: Spaghetti Squash

Total weight gain: 13.4 lbs

Exercise: Only 1 workout, BodyPump.  Does walking my butt off at Sea World count?

Sleep/Dreams:  Sleep is good!  Dreams don't seem to be as insane this week.

Movement: Jay felt the baby move, yay!  It's a lot different this time around with a posterior placenta.  With Wyatt, I had an anterior placenta (where it's near your belly), and it took a while to feel anything.

Symptoms: Still feeling drained once in a while, but the past few days I've had more energy than usual.  Plus I feel huge, what the heck is 40 weeks going to look like? yikes!

Preggo Brain Moments:  I'm always putting the wrong items in the fridge/freezer.

Food cravings: I'm really wanting some nacho cheese sauce right now.

Food aversions:  Still not feeling eggs

Maternity Clothes: This sea green top from StitchFix is a keeper!  I was too lazy to do anything to prep myself for my 22 week photo.  I'm in my gym clothes and sans-makeup waiting to go to BodyPump... all non-maternity.  The capris are my fave Lululemons (which I've had for about 7 years) and the top is a Gap Fit Breathe T-shirt.  The Gap shirts are amazing!  I have 3 of them and wear them constantly.

Belly Button/ Stretch Marks: Still in, and none yet.

Gender: BOY!

What I miss: This week I'm really missing sushi.... and wine of course.

Best moment this past week:  Seeing Wyatt experience Sea World for the first time

What I am looking forward to this week: I'm getting my hair done on Friday!  It's a disaster, and I have way to many grays for my age, ugh.


  1. Awwwh, a little spaghetti squash.
    You have me craving nacho cheese now too haha.

  2. You look great! Yes, walking Sea World definitely counts!!! I have been to a few weddings this summer, and I count those too. Any extended time on your feet while pregnant counts for something.

    As for the placenta thing, mine is in the front this time around. It's not as fun, but now that the little guy is bigger I can really feel him moving around a lot!

  3. Aww yeah, I'm not looking forward to giving up sushi when that time comes for me. But I know it'll be worth it to keep the baby healthy.


Thanks for stopping by!
