22 weeks

How far along? 22 weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  Consistently losing and gaining 3lbs.... I go back and forth every other appointment, although I think I've gained a bit more in the past few weeks since my last appointment. I've been able to eat more hearty meals, so ugh... that means although Asher is getting stronger, momma's getting fatter!

Maternity clothes? All maternity... except for my awesome pj's of course, lmbo.

Stretch marks? Mhmm.

Sleep: I had been consistently sleeping like the dead, however in the past week I've been waking up about every 2 hours needing to flip over. My hips are starting to get sore and my belly is getting bigger and bigger so it's more difficult to roll. Ay yi yi!

Best moment this week: Completely done with Asher's diaper stash (newborn stash at least) and all of his newborn clothing is washed, folded, and put away! (And we have far more than we need)

Movement: More and more, but he stays SO low. I feel like my placenta is much lower than it was with Boogie because I felt her much more than I have this little one.

Food cravings: Peanut butter graham crackers, slushies/frozen lemonade, peaches

Gender: Boy!

Labor signs: Just soreness in the belly area

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? Just wearing my wedding band right now

What I miss: Sleeping... I learned while pregnant with Elah that during this time our body starts "teaching" us how to wake up for nightly feedings.... so not ready for that just yet! LOL!

What am I looking forward too: I am very much looking forward to wearing this little one... I am still able to wear Boogie in a double hammock carry in one of my wovens on my back, but she is so independent that she much prefers to walk herself. I miss those sweet snuggles... so I can't wait to wrap Bubby on my chest and snuggle with him!

Weekly Wisdom: The earlier you start, the faster things get done, and the more time you have to spend with the wee ones. Boogie gets up about 6 now, sometimes later if I'm lucky and we've started a new cleaning routine that's really working for us! We make beds, wipe down counters, vacuum, and do a load or two of laundry every morning. Then each day of the week we have a specific chore to accomplish (like today we are washing bed linens and yesterday was catching up on any other laundry that needed to be done).
Milestones: This isn't really a milestone for Bubby, but Boogie is consistently telling Bubby she loves him. She says "luh you bubby", "luh you baby", "bubby? ere are you?" lol!

We can't wait to meet Asher. My bubbies will have a NEW bubby to play with! Love you. Glad to know that this pregnancy has gone so smoothly compared to the first.

Sarah OMG that pic is SO CUTE, Loui isn't even aware yet that there's a little person in there or that he'll be a big brother, completely oblivious and in his own little world lol, thank you for reassuring me that Bubu's weight is not a big deal, I try not to stress about it, it's hard when everyone keeps saying "OMG HE IS SO SKINNY" or "DO YOU GUYS EAT HIS FOOD" and that kind of nice things to say. Good luck momma, it's so exciting when the older sibling is a girl then she gets a brother cause then she will be taking care of him and stuff, it'll be so cute...
