Memorial Day Weekend and 22 Weeks

On Sunday we went to a Memorial Day cook out at Alex’s parents house. I made chocolate chip cookie dough brownies (and a fruit pizza..yum!), which is the best thing ever because i miss eating cookie dough so much while pregnant but since it is egg less Liam and I both went to town on the beaters and bowl… he LOVED it!


Seriously not five minutes after we got there someone (ahem..Liam) decided to mud wrestle with themselves and dirtied their cute outfit so no one ended up seeing. Thank goodness for back up outfits!


My boys beating the heat in the shade.


22 Weeks and 1 day along….


Total Weight Gain/Loss: +4 total so far

Maternity Clothes: pants, tight maternity tops and elastic bottom non-maternity tops

Gender: it’s a girl! Lucy Anne

Movement: yes, lots of jabs to the bladder this week, thanks Luc (or as Alex’s calls her LuLu)

Sleep: oy….sleeping…if only i could sleep on my back i’d be fine but i spend most of the night tossing and turning trying to stay on my side

What I miss: nothing

Cravings: strawberry fruit bars…it is a serious addiction and cereal (sugary kiddy kinds)

Symptoms: lots of kicks and jabs

Best Moment this week: My Mom coming over last week and working through all of the boxes that FILLED Lucy’s room! She now has an (almost) empty room, yay!! I can’t wait to get started putting it all together!

*** I have to go for a fetal echocardiogram on Thursday just as a precautionary measure recommended by the high risk doctor, please keep Lucy (and me) in your thought and prayers if you could that everything is okay. Thank you all so much for all of your kind words and stories through this journey so far.
