What Fruit are you? Baby girl is as big as a papaya, weighs between 12.7 to 20.8 ounces, measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches
Due date: June 21st 2016
How far along: Exactly 22 weeks!
Gender: Another little princess and we couldn’t be more excited! Yesterday while shopping at Target, Arianna found the cutest outfit and said “Mommy get this for baby Madison!”
Total weight gain/loss: So far I have gained a total of 9lbs. I am trying to eat right but my cravings are taking over!
Stretch marks: Sadly, yes. I still use my Palmer’s Cocoa Butter everyday though
Swelling: I have had some in my ankles but that is all, thankfully
Maternity clothes: All maternity jeans, leggings, and sweat pants have been my best friends. I can still wear non maternity tops but they are getting a little snug in the belly area.
Belly button: Still an innie!
Sleep: I have been having some trouble sleeping lately. I HIGHLY recommend getting a pregnancy pillow, this has been helping me a lot! Here is the one I have.
Food cravings: My biggest food craving is mild boneless wings! Every time I go out to dinner with family or friends I just tell them we need to go somewhere where I can get my wings.
Symptoms: Lower back pain and leg cramps in the middle of the night. I will take that over nausea any day though!
Movement: Heck yes! Over the past couple of weeks she has been moving more and more. As soon as I lay down to go to sleep she decides its time to go crazy and keep me awake.
What I miss: I really miss having EJ home, and being able to see my feet, haha
What I’m looking forward to: Being able to hold Madison, and EJ coming home from deployment!
Best moment this week: The other night I was sitting on the couch with Arianna and I told her to put her hand on my tummy because her sister was moving around. She felt her give a nice big kick and said “She gave me a high five!” It was adorable.
