Bump Update: Week 22 = 6 months!

Baby names!!  Such a tough decision!  We had a boys name pretty much narrowed down.  I recently added another that we both love - so it still would have been tough.  But we are a little unsure of a girls name.  We have one we think we like.  But I'm still not sold 100%...  However, once we do come to a final decision, no one gets to know until she makes her grand entrance!  :)

Haven't had 5 seconds where both of us are able to get my usual pic.  So I had to improvise this week and take my own belly shot.  Hoping next week to squeeze in the usual pic plus a comparison or two!

In my regular clothes it doesn't really pop too much - but it IS there.  However, from the front, sometimes it really does make an appearance - as you can see:

This week, baby is the size of a: Spaghetti Squash!!  She ways about 1 lb now and is about 11 inches long.  That's insane!  I just keep picturing a spaghetti squash and think - she can't be that belly doesn't look nearly big enough to hold a spaghetti squash.  lol.  

Next appointment: The 24th.  It will be here before we know it! 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Just a few pounds away from my pre-preggo weight!  Which means I've gained almost 7 lbs total.  I think.  Scale is a little different each time - so I've just been going with the doctor's office...

Exercise: House work counts right??  Only one walk this week...but headed to spend a 5 day weekend with our 7 nieces and nephews so I'm sure I'll get some exercise in then.  ;)

Maternity Clothes: Still not quite there.  Taking my maternity swim suit for the weekend though - so I guess that does count...

Sleep: Hit and miss these days.  Some night I sleep pretty great and other nights I don't sleep a wink - which makes for some miserable days.  And the crazy dreams!!  Good night!  I could sleep for 5 minutes and be able to wake up and tell you something ridiculous.  lol.

Food Cravings/Aversions: Nope.

Movement: Plenty!  She is super active sometimes.  It is pretty fun!  :)  

What I Miss: My personal bubble.  lol.  Really, it hasn't gotten too bad since my belly isn't so big.  And I don't mind when it is family.  Just weird to have people talking to my stomach on a consistent basis I suppose... 

What I'm Loving: All the tiny little movements and buying baby stuff!    

What I'm Looking Forward To: Our trip this weekend is going to be great!  Actually, by the time you read this we should be on our way!

Best Moment This Week: Hubby was feeling my belly and talking to our little Sprout and he goes: "She must be laying over here - your stomach is off center."  I lifted my shirt and sure enough - you could see one side was sticking out a little more.  He felt around a little more and found that hard spot we have come to know as our child.  haha.  I started feeling and shortly after, it disappeared.  And my belly went back to being symmetrical.  I don't think she appreciated being poked at.  :P

Milestones: 6 months now!  I can't believe I can say I'm 6 months pregnant!  Definitely doesn't feel like it.  Sprout has a sense of touch now too - so that's pretty neat!

Goals: Got the blog review done!  Love checking things off my list.  ;)  I'd like to get our bedroom walls touched up by this point next week.  Though I only have 2 days to do that because of our trip.  So we shall see...


  1. I am 22 weeks now! You were still so tiny at 22 weeks! I'm already well into maternity clothes and I'm hating that nothing fits! LOL

    1. I have grown so much but I'm still pretty tiny. OB said part of the issue is that my uterus sits differently than most I guess. haha. So weird how everyone is so different.
