baby bump: 22 weeks

22 weeks 

how far along? 22 weeks!  due January 28th.

how are you measuring? at my ultrasound on Thursday, the tech said that everything is measuring just right :) I’ve gotten a few comments that I look small for 22 weeks.

size of baby: size of a papaya, about 10.5 inches (head to toe) and 1 pound!

heartbeat: 142 bpm on Thursday

total weight gain/loss: + 11 lbs

maternity clothes:  wearing maternity pants now.

stretch marks: not yet.

belly button: it’s the same.

sleep: had a busy week, so hoping to make up for some sleep this weekend!

movement: I am feeling movement quite a bit! I think the baby is most active at 9 pm or so.

food cravings:  I’ve been eating a lot of cereal—partially due to that I don’t have many meals planned ahead of time, and also because I get tired of standing in front of the pantry wondering what sounds good, and if it will be filling enough. We’ve also been drinking a lot of hot chocolate at night—mmm!

food aversions: not really any

gender predictions? We found out on Thursday that it’s a BOY!! I can’t really believe that I am going to be a mom of two boys. I am really thrilled that Nolan will have a buddy to play with!

symptoms I have: Still trying to elevate my legs more so that they’re not sore. Tired and hungry, but that goes without saying :)

comparisons to last pregnancy:  Things are going really well—so not many differences.

doctor’s appointment: Another one is lined up for next week. I’m so glad that the ultrasound went so well—and all the baby’s brain, heart, kidneys, etc. looked perfect :)

what I’m looking forward to: This question is tripping me up right now. The end of January sounds really far away, even though the weeks are going fast. I also don’t want to rush the months, because I’m enjoying my time with Nolan so much. I suppose I’m looking forward to this season of preparation—preparing my heart for loving a new little guy, teaching myself more patience, and praying for a more easy-going nature. And of course, preparing the baby’s room, clothes, and things :)


  1. You are just adorable! :) And congratulations on having another little BOY on the way!

  2. Cute picture !!! I love see your updates :) Although I'm a little puzzled the heart-beat wives tale has always been true as far as I knew, now it's not. But it will be fun for Nolan to have a little brother to play with :) and you will be more patient and relaxed in Jesus name :)

  3. First off, you are gorgeous!!!! Second off, I'm So glad I found your blog! Can't wait to get to know you more!! Love Katie
