Baby K-2 – Weeks 21 & 22

What is Baby K up to? Her facial features are getting more and more developed and she is almost 11″ long!

How am I doing? Really good, I am hoping my ear infection is finally under control, my headaches are few and far between and overall I feel pretty good.

Weight gained: 7lbs

Workouts: Still running…slowly (about a 10 minute mile) once a week, going to spin class when I can, yoga weekly and then home workouts that are mostly weight based. I have started to decrease my weight amounts here and there since I do get tired more easily now.

Movement: Miss. C is a busier girl these days. Being that she is backwards compared to Avery it is a different type of movement I feel. Less strong kicks and more internal movement if that makes sense.

Food Aversions/Cravings: Nada!

Sleep: Good, sleeping close to 9 hours on weekday nights and 10 hours on weekends! This girl needs her sleep!

Stretch marks? Nope.

Miss Anything? Running. I am starting to have a bit of a mental battle these days and have a strong urge to run a race but I think with baby’s timing the soonest I will be racing will be next fall. But with time I will be back at it so I try to not overthink it.

Maternity Clothes: I left this out until I added more into my wardrobe. I am in maternity pants at work, or regular ones with a small extender. I still have jeans that fit though my belly pushes them down, so that does not work too well. My maternity jeans also fall down all the time so needless to say I avoid jeans. I wear leggings with dresses at work quite a bit these days! Shirts I have some maternity  wear and still a lot of my regular shirts.

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: Well it is not new news, but we found out we are having another little GIRL!! Truth time. I was thrilled. It is not that I did not want a boy but I grew up with two much younger brothers and always wanted a sister (though my brothers are VERY awesome) so to be able to have two girls just makes me really happy. I also am happy to reuse all of Avery’s clothes!

Baby Items Purchased: A few things, her coming home outfiit (squeal!), a carseat protector, and some newborn clothes from Carters. Since she will be the opposite season of Avery I did want to buy some clothes that are less winter-like for her.

      It was not cheap but I somehow justified the price – oops… I actually love little boy clothes right now. I get sick of pink lol. Especially since A loves it right now.
      Thank you!
