We had our 20 week ultrasound and check-up on August 22. Baby Shep looked great and is growing and healthy! We loved watching him move all around and boy is he active! He weighed in at 13 ounces which is 40th percentile. I measured right on track and we go back in 2 weeks for the 24 week appointment.
Shep's nursery planning is underway! We are doing a nautical theme and have picked out the most beautiful bedding from Polka Tot Designs. If you're pregnant and needing gorgeous custom made bedding, check out their site. You won't be disappointed! Our color scheme is grey and white with a mustardy yellow as the pop of color. We have all of the wall decorations purchased thanks to Hobby Lobby, Kirklands and a few fun shops from Seaside during our beach trip. I can't wait to see it all come together!
We are moving Hatcher into his big boy bed tonight and starting to put the nursery together. Stay tuned for a post on Hatch's big boy room! Pray for us that this transition will go smoothly!
Below is my 22 week bump shot and update.
How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +9 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yes! No more Bella band...it's all maternity clothes. It's time to start buying fall maternity clothes since I didn't need those with Hatcher. I have a feeling leggings will be my best friend!
Stretch marks? Nope! :)
Sleep: Sleep is good although usually interrupted by a sweet almost 2 year old who has stopped sleeping through the night lately.
Best moment this week: The cooler weather which Hatch & I enjoyed very much in the mornings! This preggo mama is ready for fall because playing outside & chasing Hatcher preggo is not easy! Lots of movement from Shep too!!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Can't think of anything at the moment!
Movement: Yes and lots of it! Shep is very active and most active late at night.
Food cravings: Sweet tea. I always love it but lately it's been a must. I try to stick to decaf tea at home but I usually have one or two caffeinated ones a day thanks to Chick-Fil-A.
Anything making you queasy or sick? This has gotten better and lately my stomach hasn't been as weak.
Belly Button in or out? In
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Labor Signs: No
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but I've had my moody moments over the last few weeks.
Looking forward to: Putting Hatcher's big boy room together today and seeing how excited he is about it! This also means we can start on the nursery!
