22 Week Bumpdate

March 6, 2018

Hi little guy! This last week has been pretty uneventful with you. And honestly, uneventful is good! You’ve been moving like crazy, but I wish you would move even more! We got to take you up to visit your siblings on my birthday, which was really nice. Having the three of you there together fills my mommy heart. I can’t wait until the weather is warmer and we can spend more time up there.

This last week you’ve been asking for a lot of protein and potatoes, which is random. Carter always liked potatoes too, but he liked fries, hasbrowns, and tater tots. You just want chunks of potatoes! I tried a new recipe last night with potatoes, chicken, and ranch seasoning, and it was actually really good, but you LOVED it! You moved like crazy after!

We got to meet your new little cousin over the weekend too. I can’t wait for you to be here so you can hang out with all your built-in friends. I wish Carter could be here for it too.

I’ve really been missing your brother lately. I am so excited for you to be here, and I really can’t wait, but I wish that he could be here too. I can see you guys wearing matching clothes, running around together and being best friends. I wish it could be a reality. The grief has been overwhelming my heart lately. I’m ready for you to be here to take some of the hurt away.

We love you buddy. Stay safe and keep growing big and strong!

Baby is the size of: a coconut!
Total weight gain: Who cares! I don’t actually know at this point.
Maternity clothes: Using my bellaband when I have a reason to put real clothes on, but not besides that.
Sleep: Sleeping well for the most part. The grief has kept me up lately.
Best moment this week: Taking you to see Carter and little bean.
Movement: Still moving so much, especially after the potatoes last night!!
Food cravings: Potatoes, chicken, and pancakes.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of dad’s toothpaste was too much the other night, but nothing besides that!
Have you started to show yet: Oh yeah. Definitely.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody for sure. Sorry, Brandon.
