Baby Two: 22 Weeks Pregnant

22 weeks pregnant


Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017!

Today is 5/26/17 which means I’m 22 weeks, 1 day.

Baby is the size of a water bottle.

I’ve gained… good question. I really need to weigh myself. I swear I’ll do this next week!

Midwife appointment this week? Nope.

Current mood:  I just almost fainted so not in the best mood. 

Cravings: I’ve been loving fruit lately. Especially strawberries and cherries. 

Food Aversions: Pizza BUT I was able to eat one with spinach on it the other day. Although, it just didn’t taste the same. 

The yucky stuff: So I mentioned the almost-fainting thing. Basically, I was standing talking to my boss for like ten minutes and out of nowhere my vision started going and I got thirsty. Then I felt like I was getting hot. I didn’t want to be a weirdo and tell her I was about to pass out so I quickly ended the convo and headed to my desk. I put my head between my legs and eventually felt stable enough. But it was really weird. I have had this kind of stuff happen in the past but it’s been quite a while. 

Currently rocking: maternity jeans and a maternity t-shirt. 

The best thing about pregnancy this week? I’ve had a couple people reach out to tell me they are giving me clothes for Hattie. I’m so thankful to have such sweet people in my life! I just received two big boxes of 6-9 months and 12-18 months. And they are SO adorable!

What’s different about baby #2 than with Jude’s pregnancy? She’s still tap dancing super low. It’s helpful for breathing but not so much for how often I have to pee!

I’m nervous about: Traveling to Barcelona. I’m not a nervous traveler at all, but I’m a little nervous about having the carry luggage around getting to and from the airport, and dealing with the summer heat whenever we are in places that are non-AC. 

Other thoughts: My thesis is due June 1 and I’m SO behind. This novel is driving me crazy.
