21 + 22 Weeks // Baby E

2015 08 23_Week 22 Bump_blog

How far along? 22 weeks

Total weight gain: 11-13 lbs

Maternity clothes? Starting to lose the ability to re-purpose pre-pregnancy tops. They’re all getting way tight, unfortunately.

Stretch marks? No

Sleep: Loving my BumpNest pillow and snuggling my puppies. Sleep is still good!

Best moment this week: How do I choose? It was a great two weeks! Started off with our 20 week ultrasound where baby girl received a clean bill of health and is growing perfectly to her due date. THEN, hubby’s brother and his wife came to visit for a week and it was so much fun! We went hiking at the Silver Falls Loop trail in Mount Rainier National Park and spent two days overnight in Port Angeles for another hike at the Hoh River Trail. It was great spending time with them and getting to enjoy the outdoors. I’m so thankful I had enough energy for all the walking!

Miss Anything? Still can’t think of anything.

Movement: Still a ton and it’s becoming more and more consistent and stronger. I’m hoping for the day she starts kicking when the dogs bark or snuggle my belly, as if to say, “I’m coming soon puppy sisters!”

Food cravings: Ice cream and caramel, all day long.

Anything making you queasy or sick: All good the last two weeks.

Gender: Little lady – getting so excited to meet her!

Labor Signs: Nope.

Symptoms: During our 2nd hike, my hands started swelling up. I’m normally inside a well air-conditioned house so my body probably just wondered what was happening to me. Good times!

Belly Button in or out? Still in…maybe for another month max, ugh!

Wedding rings on or off? On, but the swelling has me worried. Come on cool, fall weather!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Um, Labor Day weekend is around the corner? How can this be?! Looking forward to house work, organization, and getting work done for my day job so I can enjoy my third trimester free of most loose ends! We don’t have anything super special planned and I’m excited to be spontaneous and productive at the same time.

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
