I am OBSESSED with this Pinkblush dress! I keep singing over and over again, "I just can't get enough...I just can't get enough"...#80spopforthewin. PinkBlush Maternity makes such cute maternity clothes, and I literally want everything on their site! I wore this maternity dress to work and I have literally never received so many compliments in a single day! When you feel good about what you're wearing, the day can't be bad.
I have so many adorable PinkBlush outfits to share with you in the next few weeks. I love that this dress can grow with my bump, so I will be wearing it all summer long! PinkBlush isn't your average Maternity Boutique, they have something for every.single.style. (Even for you ladies who aren't expecting!) I've been eyeing this Maternity Maxi Dress as the perfect transition piece when the weather isn't so warm at the end of Summer. I'm also all about the tunic lately (anything that gives me room to grow!) and this peach tunic has me swooning. :)
Okay, onto the 21/22 week update! I can't believe how fast this is all flying by. Now that we're in July, this officially marks the last month in the 2nd trimester. I'm totally doing a little happy dance.
How far along? 22 weeks!
Total weight gain: SEVEN pounds! I couldn't believe it when I went to my last appointment. Safe to say, baby is officially growing :) They moved my due date back to the end of October because he is measuring big, (1.08 pounds!) but i'm not getting my hopes up for an early arrival. I want him to cook as long as possible!
Maternity clothes? Um, YES! And obsessing over PinkBlush Maternity, obviously ;)
Stretch marks? none on my belly, but I was noticing a few on my hips, they're barely noticeable but definitely there!
Sleep: Last week I finally caved and bought a snoogle, and sleep has been heavenly. I couldn't decide between the snoogle and the bumpnest, but they are made of the same materials and the snoogle is half the price, so I was sold!
Best moment this week: Seeing our little man healthy as can be. There is footage in the video below of him shaking his little baby booty for us and I just died! It was so relieving to know he is right on target and healthy as can be. This pregnancy business really wears on my nerves!
Miss Anything? I really don't miss anything. I was just telling Jake earlier in the week that I want ALL the babies and I already can't wait to be pregnant again, because i'm just so in love already! He quickly reminded me how I already forgot about how rough those first 18 weeks were ;)
Movement: This week I think i've felt him move less, but definietly stronger each time I do feel him. I talk about it a little in my Vlog, but we still have a long way to go and I already feel like he is running out of room in there. Or maybe he is growing up instead of out, because the smallest meal makes me feel like i'm going to EXPLODE! I would love if my organs can make a little room for him! However, last weekend hiccups started and those feel pretty silly.
Food cravings: Nothing specifically, just everything in sight. I am really craving sweets lately, like decadent, awful for you, smores, cinnamon rolls, and cake. We don't keep that stuff in the house or else i'd gain a lot more than the recommended pound a week ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still really grossed out by garlic and melted cheese. I did eat a slice of pizza last weekend but it was only because it was my only option for dinner at a friends house, and it was gross.
Gender: Little baby boy :)
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks have been really infrequent the last 2 weeks. I've been drinking about a gallon of water a day, and I think that is really helping. No labor signs, thankfully! This guy has a while longer to cook!
Symptoms: Feeling really full and uncomfortable all of the time. Super short of breath also. I'm pretty certain he is putting pressure on my stomach/lungs which is why it's been so uncomfortable lately. But other than that, nothing, and i'm so grateful to feel so good!
Belly Button in or out? Hanging on to her last days as an innie. Almost popped all the way out!
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: So happy I could cry. I do sometimes just because I can't believe this is real life. also, #hormones. I always start the day with my devotions and every morning it feels like the same exact prayer. I'm just so thankful for this healthy pregnancy. It's not lost on me how many women struggle so long to conceive, or are unable to carry a healthy pregnancy to term, and I just feel overwhelmed sometimes that we've been able to. I feel really thankful for that every single day, and it makes any kind of moody feeling disappear!
Looking forward to: FOURTH OF JULY WEEK! Seriously, this Holiday is a bigger deal in my family than Christmas. We go all out. Our BFF's arrive in town Friday to celebrate the holiday weekend with us, and my cousins and Aunt and Uncle arrive from San Diego tomorrow for a FULL WEEK of sunshine, s'mores, and cocktails. #mocktailspartyof1
I was going through my phone looking for some bump selfies i've taken this week and there weren't many. So I had to share this cute little one of my favorite not-so-little guy napping on the little guy in my belly.
I love sharing this journey with you, and i'm so happy to have the support of such an awesome blogging community. :) I ramble for way too long in the Vlog below, but you get a little peak and some baby finds we picked up this week, and you can come into the ultrasound room with us to watch our Sawyer wiggling around!
If you've missed any of my pregnancy updates, you can find them all HERE!
Until Next Time,
