22 weeks and 2 days today! I can’t believe I’m 22 weeks! I know I say this with every week’s update, but seriously!! What the actual heck!
As you may or may not be able to tell in this picture, I have officially “popped”. Almost overnight it seems. For a frame of reference, here’s my belly at 19 weeks compared to this week. Haha.
Sometimes I walk passed the mirror and I have to do a double-take because I’m not used to seeing this bump in front of me. I think I actually look pregnant now which makes this whole journey a lot more real. I felt her move over Christmas, actually during a music concert. It was a hard *wah BAM* movement. I don’t feel her all day long yet (my stupid placenta is still cushioning most of her kicks), but I can feel her move whenever I’m working out…she karate chops me the whole time haha. She seems to like to suddenly move juuuuuust as I’m falling asleep. It scares me half to death, but also I love it. But also…it would be great if she gave me a warning or something.
We had the big ultrasound last week and we got to see her for a good 45 minutes. She’s so cute and adorable and tiny!! The tech checked all of her organs and double-checked the gender (she’s definitely a girl - phew). Her little arm was resting under her head pretty much the entire time. Just straight laid back chillin.
Her profile is the cutest thing in the world!! You can tell she already has Jordan’s little ski jump nose. I wonder all day long what she’s going to look like. How much hair she’ll have (Jordan and I both had a mop of hair when we were born), what colour eyes she’ll have etc. I just need to know!!!! I can’t believe my body is really making this little person! It’s amazing to think my body is just growing a baby all by itself.
I have been feeling awesome lately. Not much sickness, nausea, cravings, etc. Energy levels are great (during the day at least). I just overall feel good! I'm not gonna lie though, it is hard watching the scale go up and seeing my body change so much. It’s all for a good reason, but it’s weird not being in control so much. As of Monday I’ve gained about 8lbs. But I’m healthy and more importantly, baby is healthy. The doctor said her belly is nice and plump and she’s eating really well haha. Me and you both, babe.
Also, we have a name for her! Well, as soon as we found out she was a she, we knew what we wanted to call her…but now we’ve settled on a middle name too!!
Okay, that’s enough random thoughts for the day. Bye.
