{Prego with Jack} 22 Weeks Update

Have to say that before I post any pregnancy update with Jack I typically go back to a similar week that I was pregnant with Abbey to read up, compare and to simply remember. It is so disappointing though at how few updates I’m doing with this pregnancy than what I did with Abbey. I guess I should give myself some slack considering I now have a 2-year old running around the house this time.

One thing I couldn’t help but to notice was the way I looked while prego with Abbey compared to how I look with Jack. I am obviously in a better state of health this time (especially with my weight) but geez! It is almost painful to look at the pictures, I look so uncomfortable. I can’t even tell you how much more active I am during this pregnancy (again, thanks to Ab). Since our basement is pretty empty I’m typically running around with George chasing Abbey, running around playing her new favorite game “duck – duck – goose” and I even walked to downtown Sharonville yesterday heading to the bank. YES – I am much more active for sure!

22 Weeks Comparison

{How far along?} 22 Weeks 1 day

{Total weight gain} Not really sure at this point because I have stopped keeping a close watch on my weight gain. I’m hoping this doesn’t come back and bite me in the ass later!

{How big is baby?} Abbey was about 13 ounces (+/-) at this time and I can’t remember exactly from Jack’s ultrasound but I thought he was about 8 ounces at the time. I wonder if he will be smaller than Ab when she was born.

{Maternity clothes?} OH hell yes and I love them!

{Sleep?} Sleeping pretty good! I’m a lucky momma that Ab sleeps in till about 8:30 on weekends (don’t hate me).

{Best moment this week?} I think it would have to be when Abbey snuggled in bed with us this morning (8:30) and said good morning to Jack, tickled him via my belly button, shared her binky with him via my belly button then laid her head down on my tummy to snuggle with her baby brother. HEART MELTER!!

{Movement?} I’ve been feeling Jack move quite a bit lately. I tried to have George feel him twice but the little bugger was not cooperative. I really felt a strong kick today which always shocks me but is so very cool when it happens.

{Food cravings?} Just recently I’m craving sweet potatoes – timely with Thanksgiving next week.

{Labor signs?} Nope!

{Belly button in or out?} In

{What I miss} Not going to lie about this one, I.WANT.A.COLD.BEER!!!!

{What I’m looking forward to} Honestly, I just can’t wait to meet Jack. I love saying his name and recognizing him as a real thing. I love the smell of a newborn baby so I can’t wait for that smell again.

{Milestone} Not sure if this is something to be marking as a milestone but hell, it happened. I literally peed myself while sneezing Friday night so that is cool.

  1. I LOVE how Abbey is getting to ‘know’ her little brother before he is born. She will already have a relationship with him by the time he makes his entrance into this world. She is truly the big sis!
