22 weeks


How far along: 22 weeks

How big are the babies? their the size of a Papaya 

Total weight gain: 18 pounds {pre-pregnancy weight 188} I feel huge like a Big Beach Whale but everyone sayings I'm carrying my weight beautifully. Let's just hope there telling me the truth and not just being nice.

Maternity Clothes? Well, I can't really say yes to this questions because I wore Maternity clothes for like 2 weeks then I went back to my regular clothes.

Maternity Fashion:  I'm wearing a black dress I got last summer from Charlotte Russe.

Stretch marks? Yes

Sleep: Horrible!!! I wake up every night every 10-15 minutes dripped in sweat. Two nights in a row DJ and I had to sleep in the living room under the AC because it's been so hot in our bedroom.

Best Moment this week: Feeling Kash and Kingsley kick. The first time I felt a kick was at 1:04am on July 2. I was jumping up and down and woke up DJ! I just absolutely melted! Then the second time I felt them kick again was last night July 14 they kicked twice and today July 15 when I watching TV with my Mom. 

Miss Anything? Sleeping!

Movement: Yes! The boys have been moving alot more and they have actually started to kick. They kicked a total of 4 times!!! :0)

Food cravings: Strawberry Lemonade, Peaches, Watermelon, and Turkey sandwiches still! I'm not really a Watermelon person and DJ loves Watermelon so I brought him one at the grocery store and cut it up for him, but I've been attacking it and eating it way more then him. lol

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing

Gender: Two sweet little Boys

Labor Signs: Nope.

Symptoms: My feet and ankles are HUGE and they always swell up at night and the pregnancy acne has came back and worse then before. It's all over my face, chest, and shoulders. I don't know if it's from the sweat and the heat or What???

Have you started to show yet? yes alittle! lol :0)

Belly button in or out? Innie

Wedding ring on or off? On

Mood most of the time: Over all very happy 99% of the time! But I did have a couple little meltdowns. 

Looking forward to: Seeing the boys, finishing up my baby shower shopping and starting on the boys nursery 

Baby names? Kingsley and Kash 

Thoughts: My mood has always been super happy but this week I had a couple of meltdowns! Monday my spirits were down because my Grandma had a heart attack and had to stay in the hospital all week. Wednesday they performed a heart procedure on her and by Friday she was doing great and was able to come home! My Aunt had to also had to have the same heart procedure done so there was alot going on with my family all week. My Friday I woke up feeling alittle happy knowing my Grandma and Auntie were okay and that I was going to see the boys. I did my hair and makeup and got ready to go see the boys at my doctors appointment. DJ and I made it to our appointment early as always. My appointment was at 1:00pm and we got there around 12:33 and I check in. At 12:55 they called me to the front counter and told me they were not going to be able to see me today or give me an ultrasound. I then asked them why and they stated as of July 1 my Insurance has changed and the Specialist doesn't take my new insurance. I had no idea my insurance had even changed and I didn't know what was going on. I got a little frazzled and excused myself to call my doctor's office. Okay I have to admit when I left the building I burst into tears. I couldn't believe we were not going to get to see our boys and find out their weight and measurements and see how much they've grown. DJ and I look so forward to seeing the boys every 2 weeks so this was a little heartbreaking. I called my doctors office and explained everything to them. Then they told me that they would send me to a new specialist that was closer to my house. So after my little meltdown I guess you can say everything worked out. No matter what's going on I know that God is always watching over and protecting my family. Thank God for his Healing that He gives to us and I Thank God for his Grace!
