Weekly Update: 22 weeks

How far along: 22 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 16 lbs

Maternity clothes: My mom made me some belly bands which I started wearing this weekend. I love that I can wear my normal bottoms again.

Stretch marks: Same but the ones on my stomach are now tanned

Sleep: I slept horribly at the beach but at home I am much better. It all depends on my level of tired

Best moment this week: Pumpkin seemed to really like the beach and floating in the water. That and running away from his aunt Lindsey when she tried to feel him move.

Movement: It is mostly at night time that he is super active but he moves during the day.

Food cravings: I love fresh fruits and anything with citrus

Food aversions: I started to think back on some of the acidic things that bothered me in my 1st trimester and they make me gag…still.

Gender: Still a boy

Labor Signs: I need these to stay far away for another 16 weeks.

Belly Button in or out? It is still far in there but it is definitely firming up. It has created a flat spot on my bump that looks weird in some clothes.

What I miss: Sleeping comfortably and not grunting every time I have sit up, or walk.

What I am looking forward to: I have a huge to- do list and I am looking forward to getting things crossed off, specifically working on the nursery and starting our registry.

Weekly Wisdom: A friend of mine assured me that I am ahead of the curve that most first time moms are, and that made my anxious mind feel much better.

Milestones: Pumpkin should be a whole pound now. I find that exciting!

Measurements: Chest- +.75”, Waist- +.25”, Hips- +.75”


  1. Hawt! Look at that cute bump :) Don't worry about that list, Whitney. It will all get done. And toward the end, you won't care anyhow. Don't forget about my offer to help paint the nursery (I'm serious.)!
