22 week bump date

I am officially 22 weeks pregnant and feeling bigger than ever!
Figured i’d do one of these little “bump date” posts today,
mainly for me to remember, but hopefully y’all will enjoy it as well!!

How far along are you? 22 weeks and 1 day!
What fruit are you? Well, one app told me baby is the size of a burger, another one told me a coconut, and another told me a papaya! Soooo….there ya go!
Due Date? March 4th! But secretly hoping he comes a tinyyyy bit earlier
Gender: Boy! Hayes Wyatt
Total weight gain/loss: I had gained about 15 lbs at my 20 week appointment, I officially weigh the most I have ever weighed!
Exercise: Gosh i’m trying! It’s definitely not as easy as I was hoping it would be, but i’ve been doing 30 minute work outs every now and then and just modifying the moves, and also walking every day!
Stretch marks: None so far, Hoping it stays that way!
Swelling: No swelling yet, however if i’m on my feet all day they tend to feel about 500 lbs
Maternity clothes: Oh that’s a big YES, give me all the stretchy pants please. Seems like I’m even growing out of those these days!
Belly button: In! I have an oddly deep belly button so I’m thinking it may stay this way! haha
Sleep: Lots of tossing and turning, baby boy LOVES to kick me at night!
Food cravings: Yellow gatorade, milk…been craving candy/sweets more!
Symptoms: Lower back pain, heavy boobs lol!
Movement: SO much movement, all throughout the day. Seriously the best feeling in the whole entire world. I could just stare at my tummy all day long.
What I miss: Fitting into all of my normal clothes lol
What I’m loving: Watching my body change, feeling those sweet kicks, preparing his nursery.
What i’m looking forward too: Seeing this baby boys sweet face, Watching Kyle be a dad, and just alllllllll the baby snuggles.
Best moment this week: Seeing his kicks on the outside of my tummy!
Words of wisdom: Pregnancy is such an incredible thing. People say it all the time but it really is crazy what our bodies are capable of. Give yourself grace during pregnancy, don’t be too hard on yourself. Try to enjoy every moment and every bump along the way. There are good days and there are hard days and that’s just the way it is, soak it all up mama!!!!

    Wow I am so inspired by this post. My husband and I are trying now and cannot wait to bring a baby into the world. But every so often I get worried about being pregnant, about being a mom, about labor, etc. But this made me feel so hopefully for the future 🙂

    We share the same due date! And so many of your cravings, symptoms, etc are the same as mine! I almost ordered those maternity jeans on line, but I held off because I was nervous how they would fit/look. They look great on you! I may have to head on over to the target website 🙂

      Oh my gosh how fun!!! I really do love them, these are my first maternity jeans that don’t go over the bump. I have to say I do prefer the ones that go over your bump, but it’s great to have a pair of each for different looks!

    You’re so cute! Brings me back to when I was pregnant. My baby is 18 months now! Being pregnant was wonderful but ROUGH!

    Can I say you are just too trendy! I mean you look great and I am jealous. I was so large when I was pregnant that I had a hard time finding good looking clothes in my size.
