22 weeks {babybrink#2}

Size of baby: a spaghetti squash or papaya. Those examples help me guess his size in NO WAY! Oh well...all that matters is that he's growin'! My belly's growing so I'm guessing we are on the right track :)

Movements: I remember getting excited to lay down and concentrate on feeling the tiniest of movements inside, and now I feel them all the time! With how crazy my days have been lately, his movements are the sweetest reminders that remind me to slow down and enjoy the little things! Plus they also remind me that, oh yeah! I'm PREGNANT! :)

Cravings: gimme allllll the junk food. I'm sure this has something to do with the fact that I've been trying to resist the junk with our upcoming babymoon. I seriously couldn't stop thinking about pizza, french fries, ice cream, etc. I finally decided I was going to give in one night and get a pizza from Costco, but Mia saved me from myself when I gave her the option to have pizza or white chicken chili for dinner. She chose the chicken chili! Of course, if I had mentioned the pizza was from Costco, she would have picked the pizza because she LOVES Costco, ha ha!

Miss anything: still missing clear, beautiful skin! Not that my skin was super amazing before getting pregnant... but these hormonal break outs are the pits!

Random: I was on the go every single day this last week and by the end each day my body hurt... It's safe to say that I've hit the stage in pregnancy where I can "over do it". But I haven't hit the stage yet where I can't walk at the end of the day when I do over do it, ha!

Best moment of the week: one night we were all in Mia's room getting ready to say family prayer before finishing Mia's bedtime routing and tucking her in for the night, Eric rubbed my belly and talked to the baby. Mia instantly got defensive and said, "NO! It's MY baby!" while patting her belly (she does this alllll the time, ha ha!) Eric responded with, "I know, but can you share with daddy?" So Mia started rubbing his belly and talking to the baby... ha ha! We couldn't stop laughing once we realized that she was sharing the baby by thinking it was in his belly while she rubbed and talked to it!

Oh my gosh! That Mia story is ADORABLE! She is so cute--that story just made my morning :)
I can imagine it's got to be so incredible to feel those little movements inside. Who knew a papaya would move so much?? ;) Hope you have a great Monday and start to June!!

Love the story with Mia, moments with Waverly have been one of my favorite parts of this pregnancy!!!! And girl, I feel ya on the breakouts, I ended up switching my face wash to Clinique around 20 weeks & have seen the biggest change! You look great!

Oh I so remember the feeling of over doing it. If you want to be able to stay super active and keep with Mia, I highly recommend getting a support belt! Not overly fashionable (especially in hot AZ) but so worth it!

Caroline @ Windy City Chic said...

Aww Mia!! She is so funny and cute. Love how she was rubbing Eric's belly and how she loves Costco!! LOL. You look beautiful and I hope that you are feeling good today!! :-)

That little Mia is going to be the most adorable big sissy! She is so protective over her baby already!

Looking good mama! Pregnancy acne is no fun, my Ob. suggested using rubbing alcohol as a toner to reduce oil and I havent stopped using it! Works wonders haha.

Sarah said...

oh my goodness, Mia is just too cute, as are you!

Brittany said...

Why is Mia the cutest ever?! I swear - every single time you tell a story about her, I totally melt. Also, I love that you said the fruit thing doesn't help you visualize the size. Whenever I read a pregnancy journal, I get so confused because they use the most random, off-the-wall fruit and I have to google what it even is.

Evelina said...

Mia is so funny!! And I love Costco too! Good taste :)

Ahhh pregnancy super did a number on my skin as well. I was broken out so bad almost the entire time. I normally never really have pimples so it was quite a shock. Then after Lyla was born, I suddenly had the most sensitive skin of all time and that has stuck with me. Darn pregnancy crap!!! Haha. I love your top!!!!

Alana Livingston said...

The size of baby comparisons are always so funny--I don't know what half of the fruits/vegetables that people mention are. lol
I crave junk foods (specifically pizza) all the time; unfortunately, I don't have a pregnancy to blame it on : (

Looking amazing, momma!!
It's so hard not to overdo things, especially when you're on the go with a little one.
How adorable that Mia calls the baby hers!
