Ready for some 22 week updates?!
Weight: Somewhere between 11-15 pounds I'd guess. Eleven pounds gained as of last week. I make a point to eat extra each day (although it truly just happens without any effort at this point). I really feel like my bump has grown a lot in the last week, so I'm sure I've put on some more weight.
Cravings: Basically just need to eat something every 2-3 hours to stay feeling good. As always, I just try to stick to clean, plant-based eating.
Here's an example of one day of my eats during the last week:
breakfast 7AM: kashi GOLEAN cereal with vanilla almond milk
second breakfast at 9AM: organic sprouted wheat cinnamon raisin bagel with Tofutti cream cheese
Lunch 12:30PM: almond butter & jelly sandwich on Ezekiel sprouted wheat bread, apple, salad of mixed greens with cranberries and walnuts with a tarragon dressing
Snack 3PM: handful of cashews and raisins
Dinner 6PM: whole wheat penne with tomato basil sauce with a Tofurky Italian sausage
Dessert 7PM: homemade peanut butter cup
And I drink water all day long.
|This pup loves bedtime|
On Thursday night, I slept from 8PM to 6AM (up very briefly at midnight). Talk about needing sleep. Sleep over the weekend was OK, but on Sunday night I slept from 9PM to 6AM - now that's how you start the workweek right.
|Closet of pure cuteness!!!|
On Sunday, we visited all our family. I was so happy to see everyone. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law were so kind and they gave us so many hand-me-down clothes that my nephew had worn. They are so cute and I feel so lucky. Our baby already has quite the wardrobe. THANK YOU x million!
My sister-in-law also made a scrumptious breakfast and the sun was shining that whole day. Wow, I've forgotten how amazing the sunshine makes me feel.
|My brother and Bailee|
In the afternoon, we celebrated my dad's birthday. We went on a family walk with all the dogs (4 humans, 4 dogs). Have I mentioned how precious my parents new puppy, Bailee, is? Love her. And it was wonderful seeing my parents and brother.
Also, I received the invite to my baby shower over the weekend thanks to my wonderful cousin. They are so cute! We have an owl theme going for the baby. I can't believe the shower is just over a month away.
Goals: Get outside more now that I think Spring has arrived. OK, there is still a little snow left in our front yard, but I'm ignoring it.
22 weeks came quick and next week is my doctor's appointment - woohoo!
