BUMPDATE: 22 WEEKS

Well hello again. Been a while since I posted last, and a lot has happened since then. The biggest (and most noticeable) change is that I am pregnant! So I am back for my weekly bumpdates. I absolutely love looking back at my weekly posts from Calvin's pregnancy, so I knew I wanted to document my growth and changes with every pregnancy.

How far along are you? 22 weeks.

Due date: June 22nd

Weight gain: About a year ago I got rid of our scale for my well being, but I did weigh myself a couple weeks ago and it was only about 7 pounds, so fingers crossed I continue to gain slowly this time around. But overall I am not keeping track.

Sleep: Really rough. Last night was the first decent night's sleep I've had in months (thank you Melatonin). For most of this pregnancy, I've been waking up multiple times a night for no reason. And what makes it worse is how it affects my mood. Since I have a toddler to entertain and take care of this time around, my lack of sleep has taken quite the toll on my patience. Thank goodness Calvin is quick to forgive, because I've let my temper get the best of me recently.

Movement: Oh yes. I feel the first flutter on January 13th, Alex felt the first kick on the 31st, and the past week movements have become more regular and intense.

Food cravings: Caesar salad. Can't get enough of the stuff. My appetite hasn't been nearly as intense with this pregnancy, and I've been a lot better at not over eating, or eating until I'm sick.

Favourite moments: Calvin is still a bit clueless to everything that is going on, but now and again he will kiss my belly. It melts my heart every time.

Happy or moody? Moody. Definitely moody. But a lot of that has to do with the lack of sleep I've had over the past couple of months.

Looking forward to: Finding out the sex on Friday. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride trying to find out. Long story short, we had an ultrasound 2 weeks ago, but the clinic's policy is to not verbally tell the fetal sex. But they also didn't add it to the report, meaning we had to book another ultrasound at a different clinic. This momma was ticked, but luckily we are going to a clinic that is much more accommodating this time around.

Personal Style

Grey Tunic: Gamiss, Pants: Joe Fresh

Over the past few months I've noticed a shift in my wardrobe. I started re-evulating my style at the beginning of this year. I found that when I looked at my wardrobe I had a lot of pieces, but very few that I actually loved. I'm a huge sucker for sales, and had so many pieces that I bought on impulse instead of genuinely liking. So I did a purge and tried to be more minimal. I wanted my closet to reflect me. I wanted pieces that I could feel comfortable and beautiful in. 

As a women I find it is so easy for us to get caught up in trends and trying to dress like someone else (I was guilty of this for years!), instead of focusing on styles that feel like ourselves. 

So how would I sum my style?

Simple, relaxed, classic, neutral, Bekah.

Summertime

Blouse: Gamiss

And the living is easy. 

The past couple of weeks have been a dream! Alex has been working days so we've been able to enjoy evenings together as a family. Library trips, walks, swimming in our pool and just taking it easy. I'm trying to savour every moment. With Alex starting school again in September, I know the next year is going to be crazy. It's only a year, but it is definitely going to be a hectic one. If only summer days could last all year round.

White Hydrangeas

This past week, Alex and I spent some time in Syracuse to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. It was nice to take a step back from everyday life and recharge. As we pulled up to our hotel, we noticed a pleasant surprise. The property was full of white hydrangea bushes. The very same flowers that were used for my wedding bouquet. 

It was such a sweet touch that added to an already amazing getaway.
