Bumpdate #6: 22 Weeks
Baby is about the size of papaya!
Weight Gain: 10 pounds
Maternity clothes: Jackets that fit last week no longer fit. Last night I wore my peacoat and I think it may have been its last day of buttoning all the way. Maternity leggings pretty much every day.
Stretch marks: Belly balm is still working.
Belly button: It's stretching wider. Still in "innie" but just barely.
Wedding ring: On
Movement: Baby is having dance parties every day. Lots of movement and Sam felt baby for the first time this week!
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well although last night I woke up with TERRIBLE heartburn. It let me practice some pain management techniques that I will be using in labor, though.
Cravings: Sushi, which unfortunately I can't eat while pregnant.
Feeling: Excited and emotional. I ordered a newborn bundle with blanket, beanie and mittens and the mittens are so tiny and adorable that I teared up.
Missing Anything: Sushi and skiing. Already planning on going out to get sushi on our first date after baby is born.
Best moment this week: Ordering three swaddle blankets for baby, showing off the baby bump at Sam's holiday work party and feeling baby dance and wiggle every day.
