Pregnancy 2.0: 22 weeks

22 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby is now the size of a cob of corn, according to my lovely pregnancy app. Really, I’m not sure where they get these measurements from, because in my world of mammoth produce, corn ears can get pretty big. Anyway, baby is a-growin’!

Feeling: Slightly more energetic, and I think it has a lot to do with the change in weather. While it poured rain last Friday night, we’ve been lucky to have mostly sunny days since then. I’m really enjoying the Vitamin D, to say the least! I won’t go so far to say that spring is on its way, but it certainly is nice to see the sun out.

Craving: Spaghetti. I make it quite often but it’s been a couple weeks and I’ve had a hankering. I’m thinking that’s what’s on the menu for dinner tonight ;)

Other: Of course, I can’t write this post and not mention my ultrasound appointment last week! Everything went great, despite me trying to sneak in a bathroom break because the clinic was running late, only to be called upon 2 minutes later. Luckily they take photos with an empty bladder as well, so the tech did those ones while she waited for my bladder to fill up. And while Kyle had to work, my mom and Isla got to come into the room and see the baby on the screen. Isla thought it was pretty amazing – her eyes were HUGE while she watched the screen and said “how cute” the baby was. My mom never had an ultrasound when she was pregnant with me or my brother, so she thought it was pretty amazing as well.

Oh, and we DID find out if Baby #2 is a boy or girl! I was able to get the results from my doctor’s office on Thursday, so I hightailed it to the baker before I got too tempted to open the envelope! I picked up the cupcakes for the gender reveal party Friday after work, and our family came over for dinner and to help us find out!

We gave Isla the honours of eating the first cupcake, and I got it on video. So, if you want to know if it’s a boy or girl, you’ll just have to watch and see! (Unless, of course, you have me on Facebook or Instagram.)

Isla really put on the suspense for us! You’d think a 2.5-year old would be more into destroying a cupcake, but she treated it like a delicate little flower, haha.

While we were both convinced it was a boy, we couldn’t be happier that we’re having another girl! Kyle’s going to have his hands full in the future, that’s for sure ;)

  1. I loved your reveal video! We didn’t bring Topher to any of my ultrasounds with Ellie (I had so many!!!!) but we did get a video done at the first one and a disc full of pictures. He didn’t really care too much – especially once he found out he was having a sister. He wanted (and still wants!) a brother! Maybe we’ll get him a boy dog …
