22 Weeks

For the past few weeks, we've been trying to teach Carter about the baby. He doesn't really get it yet, but whenever we say "baby" or "where's the baby?" he always pulls up his own shirt and then pulls up my shirt and points to both our bellies. I love it.

Well last night, Bob caught a picture of it. This very well may be my favorite picture ever.

Pregnancy: 22 weeks {belly pic taken at 22w4d for mommy and 18 months for Carter}

Weight Gain: 7 POUNDS TOTAL!!!! I was shocked. Shocked. I expected it to be much higher.

Sleep: Much better, thanks to Carter. He might wake up every other night now and has no problem at all falling back to sleep. We just check on him, give him a hug, and then lay him back down in his crib and he falls asleep within minutes.

Sometimes I do have trouble falling back asleep, but lately I've been so tired that hasn't been a problem. I hope it stays this way!

Gender: Girl

Name: Brynn Sophia

Feeling: Feeling good, overall. My ribs kill me at night, but I'm trying to stay positive... I have a long way to go.

Health: My blood pressure was amazing at my last appointment! My doctor was thrilled {and so was I}... then she looked at my chart and said that my BP didn't start picking up with Carter until I was 30 weeks. It was perfect up until then. Hmmm. Still trying to stay positive!

Movement: Well I certainly have very active kids. I can leave Carter in our kitchen for an hour and find him in the same place as where I left him: doing laps around the kitchen island. Well this baby is no different... she's always moving. I honestly don't know when she sleeps!

And last night, Bob felt her kicking for the first time =) She's been moving around for awhile, but he's never around when she's going crazy and my belly is moving all over the place. Well last night {while I was stalking Kristal's Facebook page and awaiting a text to see if she had delivered her baby} Brynn was kicking me really hard so Bob ran over to feel it. He got kicked quite a few times. =)

Belly: No stretch marks {yet}. Belly button is out. Linea Negra is very faint, but can be seen under my belly button.

Next Appointment: February 18th at 25w5d. And I will have another 1 hour glucose test at that time.

{I already had a 1 hour glucose test at 8w during this pregnancy because Carter was such a huge monster baby. Thankfully, I passed so I'm hoping for a repeat of that and not a repeat of my 1 hour with Carter. I wasn't so lucky when I was pregnant with him- I ended up failing the 1 hour, but passing the 3 hour.}

I PPH that picture :) I have tried to catch Landon kissing my belly on video but every time I pull out the camera he stares at it (just like Carter, lol). I've gotta find a way to trick him ;)

I'm glad you seem to be having a great pregnancy. I can't imagine having a tough pregnancy with a toddler, can you? I was so afraid of that but it has been easy peasy. Let's hope it stays that way for BOTH of us!
