Mommy Monday {22 Weeks}

I had quite the stressful week. I had quite a few Braxton Hicks Contractions this week and I think that I've linked it to wearing my pre-maternity pants too low on my hips. As soon as I switched my pants, they stopped happening. Apparently baby doesn't like to be constricted so I'm switching fully over to maternity pants.

We've also had some stress relating to the building of our house. That all will be in a completely different blog post. It's coming along nicely and I like how it looks so far, but there is definitely a lack of communication and complete disconnect in the building/construction world. If only people would just LISTEN when we tell them what we want, there wouldn't be any problems.

Anywho, I'm about ready for this house to be done and the stress of moving/packing to be over. We are currently living amongst a ton of boxes again and it's just no fun!

How far along?  22 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm trying not to focus on my weight too much this time around. I've been working out more consistently and feel really good about how I'm feeling. That's all that matters! 
Maternity clothes: I am saying bye to my Bella Band and hello full time to my maternity pants and leggings. Give me allll the leggings!
Stretch marks: None to report and hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee. I will probably add The Honest Co. Belly Balm soon!
Sleep: I feel very rested lately, although Lennon had a bit of a rough night last night. Coughing and sneezing. I'm praying she isn't getting sick again.   
Exercise: Beachbody On Demand is still my go to workout. I only worked out once this weekend because I've been busy packing. So much packing. Ugh! 
Best moment this week: Hmm, was there really a best moment this week? The weather was pretty nice and I was able to get in two nice walks with Lennon after work!
Miss anything? Being able to lay on my back is now really affecting me. 
Movement:  This has also been a pretty big stressor for me. Especially yesterday, I was struggling to feel her moving so I did everything to get her to kick! She finally kicked away, but not before she had me in tears. It never gets easier.  
Food cravings: I've been a big fan of Starbursts this last week. Nothing too out of the ordinary though.    
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing is really making me queasy or sick lately. I'm still not a big fan of bell peppers. 
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: No and let's keep it that way!
Belly button in or out? In, but sneaking it's way out. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Because of all of the stress, I've been pretty moody. Hoping for a much less stressful week ahead.  
Looking forward to:  Getting a haircut tomorrow and our house being done! 

I'll leave you with this photobombed Bumpdate! Lennon decided she wanted to be in the picture this week too!

Until next time!
