22 weeks


Thoughts: In the past week I've rocked a bikini (hence the sunburned belly), volunteered at church for 5 hours, pulled weeds and worked around my parents lakehouse, and even seen my tummy move! I love this belly and really enjoying being pregnant. 

Baby: he is about the size of a spaghetti squash and 1lb! 

Symptoms: 1/2 a Zofran pill at night and sometimes in the morning (I hate saying this but I feel like I am regressing with this whole morning sickness/all the time sickness thing). My back has been super sore lately and I think it's because of my posture. I am trying to figure out the best way to sit/stand to offset the weight gain in the tummy. 

Weight: gained 15lbs

Movement: all.the.time! Like I said above, we can now see him kick from the outside which is the coolest thing. He gets really active when I lay down to go to bed and I feel like I am on a roller coaster. The kicks are HARD and take me by surprise when my whole body is relaxed. 

Sleep: ehhhh....hard to get uninterrupted sleep without moving from one side to the other, getting up to pee, or baby kicks. 

Cravings/aversions/eating: craving watermelon, pineapple, grapes and other watery fruits. And sweets of course :)

Workouts: slower this week...walking outside and on the treadmill but I get out of breath pretty easily. I have pretty much halved the weight I do when doing free weights because I just feel weaker but I feel so good working out. 
  
Clothes: loving maternity skinny jeans, capris, and leggings this week. I have a few pair of shorts I plan on trying in the next couple of days. I mentioned I wore a bikini last weekend and the belly fit but I was quite voluptuous up top. We'll see how the whole stretch mark situation goes and if I stay in a 2 piece or not (I did buy a maternity tankini for our trip in June). 

Random: well I am unmistakably pregnant and have gotten some funny comments/questions. At the gym yesterday I saw an older man (prob 65-70) I had met before but hadn't seen in a while who pointed to my tummy and said, "so what do we got going on there?". I've also been asked if it is twins since it's getting so big haha. 

I've gotten a few matching shirts for Jon and baby and I think Ernie is jealous!
I can't wait to get them matching swim trunks for next summer :-)

We were given the shoes that one of our ring bearers wore at our wedding so baby Hart can wear them some day. We actually had 3 ring bearers (brothers I used to nanny for in college) and the littlest one turned 1 on our wedding day...

Unfortunately, my nausea started to come back more right at 22 weeks too :( Hang in there! I'm 33 weeks today and still taking my meds too. Also getting the "Are you sure there isn't 2 in there??" comments! Ha ha ha

Aww so precious! I loved feeling Evelynne kick when she was inside of me.. It was so comforting. Watermelon was my biggest craving! I could easily eat a whole one.. I bet you rocked that bikini girl! I hear "Stretch marks" are caused by itching your stomach while it's stretching.. I received that info a bit too late in my pregnancy =/

Soooo cute! This is so fun following along on your journey of pregnancy! You are seriously thee cutest pregnant woman :) I totally remember those days of tossing and turning through the night trying to get comfy and missing sleeping on my tummy! I heart your matching shirts you got the boys! Hope all is well and you have a blessed week!

xo,
Shio

I CRAVED pineapple when I was pregnant! I ate so much of it the acid in it broke my mouth out in ulcers! I can't even look at a pineapple right now :( You look amazing, Ruthie!!!!! That glow on you is stunning!

Christa Cox said...

Look how cute you are!!

michelle said...

seriously how cute are you! and i have been craving watermelon too and i'm not pregnant! i just really want it to be summer!

Julie Keller said...

Looking great Ruthie (as always)! I can't believe that your son is already the size of a spaghetti sqaush - that's so big already. How very exciting to be able to see him moving inside of you also - that's got to be something to see. Always reminds me of that Malteser candy commercial that the pregnant lady has a chocolate on her belly, and the baby kicks it off.

You look amazing!!! Good for you for rocking that bikini...I bet you looked gorgeous!

And where are the bikini shots???? I bet if you posted you would have been hired by a swimsuit line for mommies to be!!! You are growing just like I pictured you to be....PRECIOUS and nothing but a sweet belly!!

Amanda said...

How are you this far along already?! I really need to start looking into flights to get my butt out there! You look fantastic, and I'm glad you don't have to take as much zofran. Also, I'm so jealous of the time you're spending at the lake house. It's "warm" today at 45 lol.

Carolyn said...

You're so cute! :) I love that baby Hart gets to wear the shoes from your wedding! ADORABLE!

KRISTIN said...

So sorry to hear you are still getting sick! But glad that you are enjoying being pregnant! I craved fruit and sweets non-stop when I was pregnant.

Cathy said...

Hi, I was recently watching a re-run of house hunters and thought I'd come by and check out your blog.

Your recipes look delicious! I'll have to try some of them.

I enjoyed looking through some of your posts and now following. :)

Congrats on your new baby to come!

God bless

Angela said...

Looking gorgeous!! I have a matching white and grey chevron wall in my house too. :)

Christelle said...

Love that pic of Ernie snuggling with the matching shirts! It will be so cute when daddy and son can wear matching trunks, too! :)

So sorry you are regressing with the morning sickness, I hope it stops soon. On the plus side, you and that belly are so cute!!

Chandelle Foote said...

Are you just getting lucky to find things like matching shirts for the little guy and hubby? Or where did you find these? :) I want to get matching shirts for hubby and our little man!

Amanda said...

You are just as cute as you can be!!! I can't believe its been so many weeks since I've seen u pretty girl! I hope we run into each other at Church Sunday! xo

Mason's Mama said...

Your sweet precious bump just gets cuter and cuter! I am so happy that you are loving being pregnant. I did too!!

Kate said...

I've loved reading your updates. I am just 2 weeks behind you and due with our 2nd on Aug 22!

Wendy said...

You look fantastic! Hearing you talk (or write ~ ha!) so makes me miss being pregnant! I loved all the little squirms and wiggles and seeing my tummy look like it was possessed with baby movements :)

Heather said...

You are rocking that belly!! I see pictures like that I and I (almost) miss being pregnant. I may need to stay away from your blog for the next couple months... ;)
