Pregnancy #2 – Week 22

Baby is the size of… corn on the cob, American guinea pig, water bottle, flaugnarde

Highlight of the Week… Baby and I were totally in sync this week. No weirdness from the uterus! Tons of energy. Baby is getting more active every day and I’m enjoying their little dances!

Frustration of the Week… I had a day this week when I just felt swollen. From my sinuses to my toes, everything just felt…swollen. I was well-hydrated, well-fed, hadn’t been on my feet a ton. I have no idea where it came from and it suuucked.

Cute thing the boys did… We’re moving onto more serious clothing and Hank is back to helping me zip up and tie different tops and dresses. It’s so comical to me that he has to help dress me as the belly grows!

Curiosities… Everyone warned me that my second pregnancy would be very different from the first but I’m surprised by how similar they are. I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of the same symptoms but less pain than I had with Cam (mainly because I’ve learned to manage it) and so it all feels surreally similar. I know there’s still a lot of time left but it’s really fun to have them so close together for easy comparison.
