Dear BabyBug 2.0 (22 Weeks)

22 Weeks

Dear Bug,

You’re kicking me as I type this! I love that so much and encourage you to keep it up, OK?

The theme of this week is TIRED. You can probably tell from the pictures that I am like a walking zombie at the moment. We traveled to Denver last weekend so that could be part of it, but I’ve just needed so much sleep and even that doesn’t seem to make much of a difference.

The two other symptoms that have popped up — on the exact same schedule as happened with Audrey — are intense rib pain (like SERIOUSLY WHOA) and heartburn. The rib pain is not a daily issue for now, but it was bad enough one day in Denver that I had to lay down for about an hour just to try to catch my breath. It’s only on one side of my body and it’s at the very top of my ribcage. Does that mean you’re growing up there?

Other than that, I’m feeling pretty good. Up until this week, my energy levels were super high — I’m still working out a lot and even teaching a few classes — and not feeling all that huge. People are definitely noticing I’m pregnant and asking all kinds of fun questions. It’s exciting that it’s exciting for others, too.
