How far along: 22 Weeks! Hello and Holy Moly to 6 months!!!
Baby’s size: 1-1.3 pounds and 12 inches long. This week he is as big as a Flaugnarde which is just a fruit filled dessert made in a pan. Who comes up with these names?
Sleep: Ummm…..I’ve kind of realized that sleep is not meant for me and that I was meant to live in a state of exhaustion.
Best moment this week: Thanksgiving, got the boys moved downstairs and had a doctors appointment yesterday where everything checked out perfectly.
Worst moment this week: Jared caught the bug Friday and was sick most of the weekend. Then we had a huge weekend in business sales and so are insanely behind at this point that the working nights and weekends are back in full fledge so I’m making 2-3 trips a day to the warehouse with various amounts of children in tow each time. Let’s just say my house is an absolute disaster and it was the wrong week to try to add more exercise and veggies to my life.
Movement: I feel him more and more every day but he definitely isn’t as strong feeling as the others. I think part of this is where my placenta is but also I have a feeling he is going to be a smaller baby…..tall but smaller than Gavin. Dunno, we will see.
Cravings: Remember those veggies I’ve been adding?? Yea, lets just say I’m craving everything I shouldn’t be eating. Boo!
Missing Anything: Energy and the ability to use all the hours in the day. I used to get way more done than I can now. I’m having to take breaks and rest cause my body is definitely sure to tell me when I overdue it. I have way too much to do to take the time for breaks.
Queasy or sick: I’m the only one who hasn’t had this stomach bug going around ….. well had it full fledged anyways. I’ve had some upset stomach pains but nothing that’s morphed into the vomiting disaster everyone else seems to have had. Literally, everyone I know has had it. Thankfully, I’m hoping I can stay away from the worst of it since being sick while pregnant really petrifies me and makes it even harder to function.
Looking forward to: We’ve basically had to cancel or refuse any holiday parties or get togethers for the unforeseeable future because we literally can’t take even a couple hours off of work. However, this is part of business and this is our super busy time so I am by no means complaining. Hopefully, before Christmas we can drive around and look at lights with some hot chocolate and at least feel like we get to partake in the season. Haha. Plus, Logan’s bday is coming up in a couple of weeks….Ummm the kid will be 9. How is that possible???
Baby Item of the Week: Does paint count? I got the paint for the nursery which is a cream color and some black chalkboard paint. I’m excited to get started on it and finally get all the furniture assembled and ready to go. Honestly, this is the latest I’ve ever gone without having the nursery mostly done. I know….I’m only 6 months but I really do try to get these things done early before I get super huge. Not sure if this one is going to be done anytime soon but here’s to hoping!!
Happy 6 months everyone!!!
