How far along: 22 weeks
Symptoms: Heartburn, indigestion, and nausea… ugh! I don’t remember getting heartburn with Emmalyn until the third trimester. It stinks, y’all! Plus, my hips are crazy sore 24/7.
Maternity Clothes: Pretty much everything.
Total Weight Gain: 5lbs.
Movement: Lots! All the time. It feels like she’s predominately on my bottom right side.
Sleep: If the heartburn isn’t keeping me up, then sleep is pretty successful, minus my hips giving me trouble.
Cravings & Aversions: Been craving ice cream! The really bad for you kind of ice cream 😉
Not So Funny Moments: Being hormonal and emotional. Any little thing could set me off. Whether it’s forgetting to pay the cable bill (…never happened before! Damn pregnancy brain…) or a commercial, or some reason I don’t even know the reason! Hormones are weird!
Nesting: The desire to nest is there, and prevalent all over my Pinterest, but the desire to physically get up and take care of it is not–ha!
Best Moments This Week: Emmalyn feeling the baby kick for the first time. I put her hand on my belly and she said, “My little sister ‘booped’ me!” Then she pretended to tickle the baby back.
What I Miss: Feeling like a normal person, physically.
Looking Forward To: Emmalyn having a little sister!
