How Far Along: 22 weeks
Size of baby: A papaya or between 10.5-11.8 in and 12.7-20.8 oz.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: a little bit more....
Maternity Clothes: all of my pants and a few tank tops and t-shirts (for length) I've been able to wear some larger sizes in regular clothes, but most of my dresses are still fitting.
Gender: It's a girl!
Movement: Baby continues to move on a regular basis. She is usually quiet after workouts, but moves around a lot when I am sitting at my desk, driving in the car, or relaxing on the sofa.
Wedding Rings: On.
Symptoms: Heartburn and hip pain. The massage that I had last week helped, but I could have used another hour on my legs, especially my IT bands and hamstrings, which have always been tight.
Sleep: I have tossed and turned a lot this past week. My internal clock woke me up around 7 on Saturday and Sunday.
What I miss: Feeling good about how I look. My self-esteem has taken a huge blow this week. I'm trying to snap out of that funk.
Cravings/Aversions/ food in general: I've been loving fruit and I am trying to get more vegetables into my diet, as well as protein. I feel like I've been eating a lot more carby foods, which make me tired.
Workouts: Bootcamp, free weights, and walking
Best Moment This Week: Getting a sneak peek at the baby shower invitation and getting a one on one pumping/ storage lesson from a mom friend of mine!
Worst Moment(s): The comments. "Wow you are showing a lot," and "You look much more pregnant than the last time I saw you," are not appropriate greetings. At least say hi first. Getting dressed in the mornings in a struggle. I'm having a hard time mixing and matching and feel guilty spending money on maternity clothes.
Shopping: Do groceries count?
