Pregnancy Update {22 Weeks}

At 20 weeks, 1 day---my stomach is getting very hard and I can definitely tell where the baby is. So cool and crazy at the same time!

For the last several weeks, I have craved grapes like crazy! I never purchase them at the store because they are too expensive. On Friday, June 28th, Whole Foods had them on sale for 99 cents a pound. I sent Matt to Greenville to stock up!! He purchased 14 pounds!!! We only kept a little bit fresh and froze the rest to have for the next few weeks. I really like them frozen these days!

On June 30th, I had my first big ugly unexpected cry about something completely silly. I had been hinting to Matt about ice cream. I just KNEW he would come home from work with ice cream. He showed up empty handed and I was SOOO unexpectedly sad! He said that the reason he didn't bring any was because of our tight budget which was totally logical. I was fine and then all of a sudden, I just started crying!!! It was so crazy. Matt handled it well but I did not. I couldn't believe I was crying but at the same time, I couldn't stop!!
*Side note, this week, we received a refund for something and I told Matt "you may want to set a little aside for my ice cream cravings!" :)

On July 3rd, we had our Anatomy Scan/Ultrasound. As I mentioned before, we are paying self-pay for OB fees/delivery, therefore, we are avoiding extra costs as much as possible. Because of that, this was our first ultrasound. I have to admit, I was both SUPER excited and LITTLE nervous at the same time. I was pumped to see baby but realized the ultrasound tech would be looking at everything with our baby. Everything went well! I will post tomorrow with a few pictures!

Here's me in all my glory. I have gained only 6.1 pounds and I don't feel like I look very much different but Matt says he can tell that my stomach is rounding out more!

Everything is going well. I'm still feeling great too! My next appointment is on August 3rd and I'll take the dreaded glucose test that day ;-) and have another small ultrasound. (read tomorrow's post for more on that)


  1. Glad things are going well!! Lets plan an ice cream date-my treat:)

  2. How exciting! :) :) You look great and deserve some extra pampering. A few tears won't hurt a thing.
