Baby Brother...22 Weeks!

I'll have more time for a big post tomorrow (because someone will not stay in his bed during naptime today and he has school tomorrow!), so I'm switching things around a little bit. Tomorrow I'll be 22 Weeks pregnant! It's not flying by this time, but it feels faster than with James for sure!

Please ignore the shadow behind me that makes me look 10x bigger. I'm going to have to find a new photography location, I think. And, yes, I did get my hair chopped off. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Some days it looks great and other days (like here) it just looks blah.

Size of the Baby: Papaya – If these fruits/veggies are running together for you like they are me, that means that Baby Brother measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces. (He weighed right around 12 ounces two weeks ago when he was measured.)

Total Weight Loss/Gain: +2 pounds

Maternity Clothes: For the most part, I’m in them. Lots of dresses! I’ve ordered several pairs of pants since I didn’t have pants when I was pregnant last time (summer-time pregnancy!).

Gender: Another boy!

Movement: Yes! Lots and lots and lots of it. He enjoys sitting right on top of my bladder all.the.time.

Cravings: I finally feel SO MUCH better. I’m not craving anything (except lots of sugar…not good) but I’m finally eating again. Still a few aversions, but much better than before.

Symptoms: I feel a lot better than I have! I have started wearing out more easily and I am certain that the hypoglycemia that I experienced with James is back. I also have the regular pregnancy aches and pains – and a little sciatica, but not nearly as much as I had with James.

Sleep: Still ok. I’m getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but I’ve been going back to sleep. I’m having some trouble falling asleep.

What I Miss: Hmm…not much.

Best Moment This Week: Eddie finally felt Baby Brother kicking this week! So fun!
