{22 Week Bump}

How far along?: 22 weeks
Total weight gain?: 10ish lbs
Size of baby?: Baby is the size of a co-co-nut. 15.1 ounces. It's crazy how big she jumps from week to week now. I have a coconut in my belly.
Maternity clothes?: Mostly just leggings, I still wear my own shirts and in this pic I'm wearing my regular pants, but I have a belly band on to keep them up!
Stretch marks?: Not really, but mine from Henry are kinda peeking their way back through. Ugh.
Sleep: Still passing out as soon as I hit the pillow. I love sleep and I want all that I can get before sweet girl is here!
Best moment this week: Sean *finally* felt her kick! Not just once, but enough for him to be like, "Whoa! She's doing all the in there?!" She moves so crazy much, just like her big brother did! I have wild babies.
Miss anything?: Not having to wear maternity jeans to work. It's the most annoying thing ever and I can't tuck my shirt in, so I look like a slob kabob. Also, Henry and I are constantly passing a cold back and forth so I really miss being able to take meds. Being sick and tired at work plus the exhaustion of growing a baby and caring for a toddler is rough. 
Movement?: She is constantly squirming in there and as I mentioned above, Sean is finally able to feel her. Which is great really, because now we both have him wrapped around our fingers. ;) Shopping has been so much more fun now that he has felt her and is really getting into it! He was even walking around picking stuff out for her. WHOA.
Food cravings: Nope. I'm big into sweets, but I don't necessarily crave anything. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: At first, everything. Morning sickness was way worse with this one than with Henry. It was absolutely awful, but it's faded and now all is well. :)
Gender: GIRL <3 <3 <3
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: Heartburn/acid reflux. The sciatica comes and goes, it isn't constant yet. I'm super emotional too. :-D
Belly button in or out?: In.
Happy or moody most of the time?: Happy. Busy. I'm getting to the point where there is a lot coming up (Henry's birthday/holidays) and a lot to get done in between, so I don't really have time to think. It's time to focus and get stuff done. I want to finish planning H's birthday and then I plan to paint the room that they'll share. We also have maternity photos this weekend. I know, it's a little early at 6 months, but I really don't want to do them in the dead of winter. Weekends are extremely limited between work, Henry, my baby shower and all of the holidays and parties coming up-so, this weekend it is! Regardless, I'm still so excited for them. Hoping our vision comes through in the photos.

That's all this week, friends. Sorry other posts were sparse, I'll try and get back on it this weekend!
