Dear baby- weeks 21 & 22

Dear baby,

I am having a hard time staying on top of writing to you. This pregnancy is going by so fast! I think it might have something to do with the fact that I am always chasing your brother around. He is really fun. You are gonna love having him as a big brother. I can't wait to see the 2 of you together. My 2 boys... I am so excited!

Here is what my little bump has looked like the last 2 weeks. Tomorrow I will be 23 weeks so I thought it would be a good idea to get these up asap.

{21 weeks}

{22 weeks}

And then I had to do this... 

{because Winston looks just as pregnant as I do.}

how far along? 22 weeks 6 days

total weight gain: 13 lbs. And the weight gain is just getting started! 

maternity clothes? 100% with the exception of a few t- shirts. I am not willing to sacrifice my comfort as far as that goes. 

stretch marks? Not yet... 

sleep: Not nearly as much as I would like. 

best moment this week: Winston praying for "baby brother" (he had some help with that but still so adorable). And of course feeling all the baby movements. 

miss anything? feeling cool. As in temperature.  

movement: Yes! Not nearly as much as Winston but for sure some movement. If ever Steven is around and he starts moving I make him feel. I think he loves it... 

food cravings: Anything and everything that can be considered as junk food. 

anything making you queasy or sick: Not anymore!

labor signs: Nope!

symptoms: Heart burn and some minor swelling

belly button in or out? In but threatening to "pop" any day.

wedding rings on or off? On but I am thinking they need to come off soon. When you can see the detail of everything on your ring on your finger you know it's time.

happy or moody most of the time: I think I am pretty happy most of the time. But you should really ask my husband. He might have a different answer. 

looking forward to: Swimming any and every chance I get this summer. 


  1. Oh goodness so cute! And the wedding ring - mine came off way early my second pregnancy too! Not so fun.

  3. You're looking so adorable! I'm loving junk food right now too and it's so hard to cut back!! I write letters to my bean too, and I've been slacking for a couple weeks...but finally wrote one today!
