22 Weeks


Our baby weighs a pound already! And it’s almost a foot long from head to toe. I definitely feel like it’s getting bigger in there. Andy’s been feeling it move a lot more this week, which is fun. I’m feeling pretty good still, which is great!

We registered at Target on Saturday, and it was pretty fun. There are so many baby things to choose from. We went in armed with a few lists of suggestions, and I’ve been listening to what friends say they used/didn’t use. I’m excited about our baby shower coming up in Portland in the beginning of November, and Stayton friends are going to do one probably in the beginning of December. Then I’ll feel like we can actually get started setting up the things for the baby. I’m very excited to be getting 11 days off of work at Christmas. First I think we’ll go visit my family, then we’ll be home getting everything ready for baby Pullen to arrive. It’s only 4 months away now!!

I’ve been having trouble sleeping on my right side lately. For some reason my skin from my hip to my knee goes numb when I sleep on that side. I’m not sure why, probably a pinched nerve or something. I’m not sure what to do about it, because my left hip is getting sore from sleeping on that side all night.

Changes this week: I have a growing bump for sure. People are really starting to notice and that’s fun. I haven’t really gained weight anywhere else. I bought some maternity pants a little big because I thought I’d fill them out, but they’re still just baggy.

Cravings this week: I’ve decided that I really need to cut back on sugar, so very few sweets for me, no matter how bad I want them. I had roasted beets and carrots last night and they were delicious! As far as cravings, probably popcorn this week is a big one. And as always, lots of fruit.


  1. Thanks so much for posting pictures each week! I really look forward to going to your blog on Wednesdays! You look great. I remember Cindy at this stage. FUN!!

    Take care of yourself. Costco has a foam mattress queen topper on sale online right now. I'm sorry you are having trouble with your side.

    I love you!!

  2. Pillows Pillows Pillows! I usually have 3 behind me so I'm not flat d/t heartburn. Try putting a pillow or two under your hip and behind your back so you're half on your side to give the hip bones a break. Good luck.


Camp Awesome!

The big kids went to Camp Awesome at church on Tues-Thurs. They had so much fun! Reid stayed from 9-12, and Ruby stayed from 9-4!  Read...
