22 weeks


22w2
{Dress: Zulily}

Well I think it's time to bust out the body pillow, because it is getting really hard to sleep now. It also seems that every time I wake up, this baby is having a dance party as well, so it's  a bit difficult to fall back asleep right away once I'm awake.  

Oh, not to mention that, for some reason, Brynn has given up sleeping altogether.  Not quite sure what her deal is.  For example, last night she went to bed around 10:30ish {!!} and then woke up at 3am wanting to go downstairs and play. {Oh yeah, like that's going to happen.}  I tried to get her to lay with me and cuddle for a bit, but she just wasn't having it.  And since I could hardly keep my eyes open, I had to put her back in her crib.  I guess she eventually cried herself back to sleep... I wouldn't know.  I think I passed out again as soon as my head hit the pillow.  What I do know is that she refused to wake up this morning. {See Miss Brynn, that's what happens when you don't sleep.}

Pregnancy: 22 weeks

Weight Gain: 10 pounds

Sleep: See above.

Gender: We're team green, so we'll find out in September!

Names: Reid Joseph or Emerson Mae {see the name post here!}

Feeling: Tired.  Really tired.

Health: I felt a little swollen over the weekend and that's probably because it was about 85 both days.  {It's going to be a long summer.}  My reflux has also been terrible so I've had to time my Zantac and Tums so that I can make it through the day.

Also? I'm having a lot of shortness of breath/dizziness lately.  I know that's somewhat normal as your belly grows, but I guess I just didn't expect it so soon.

Movement: This baby loves to move and shake and his/her active times are becoming more regular and predictable {which is a good thing!} I feel him/her the most after dinner, but before bed.  =)

Belly: It seems to have grown a lot this week.  At least it feels much bigger {in person} and I have had a lot of family tell me the same thing!

For comparison, here's my 22 week belly with Brynn {and one of my favorite pictures!}...
Love it!  {OMG, Carter looks so little!!} Brynn does the same thing with the belly buttons... I should try and get a picture of it too =)

Next Appointment: OB & Ultrasound: Next Friday, May 25th at 23w5d.
