Baby No. 3 :: 22 weeks

2:19:00 PM

Baby girl is 22 weeks (gestation) this week and even though I have somewhat reached a happy place in my pregnancy where I have a bit more energy and am not feeling sick anymore, business has picked up at work and I am busier than ever...not leaving much time for me to rest my sweet belly. The muscles in my stomach are feeling the tension much quicker this time around, so I am trying hard to find time to get as much exercise as I can in, including core strengthening. What I wouldn't give for a nice long nap right about now, but as they say, "no rest for the weary" (or for the working mom with two other kiddos).

How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain: +14 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes. Maternity pants and shorts for sure!
Stretch marks? none
Sleep: Getting as much as I can, but wish I could get more. 
Best moment of this weekFeeling lots of little kicks and movement now. Little lady is somewhat of a party animal in the evenings. 
Miss Anything? My energy...feeling wiped after this super busy week.
Movement: Yes, loving it!!
Food cravings: Peanut butter + bacon.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not too much any more. Thank goodness.
Have you started to show yet? Yes.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs? nope
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time? A little moody this week, thinking this is more because I am just exhausted.
Looking forward to? Going on our little family vacay this upcoming week...hopefully mommy can get some much needed down time.

Verse I am clinging to this week:
"Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
- Matthew 11:28-29
