My Kelocity Baby: 22 Weeks February 2, 2012

How I’m Feeling: Still feeling really great! People keep telling me how lucky I am that pregnancy has been so enjoyable for me. I think I have a pretty calm and chill baby in there who already loves his/her mama.

I definitely felt a bit run down after a  crazy weekend last week though. Nothing bad, but I notice I can’t keep up with my old self any more. I have to start keeping that in mind when planning day-long excursions when I’m on my feet. 

But it was a fantastic weekend! We went to Buy Buy Baby, two Babies-R-Us stores and two targets all in one weekend. It was crazy! I think we’re starting to get all the pieces in order.

It was all baby, all day long. Test driving strollers is hard work!

At the end of the weekend, we even found and ordered the crib we love (it was on sale!!) It should be arriving in a few days! I don’t know what we’re going to do with it yet, but least we have it! So exciting!

Weeks along: 22 Weeks

Pounds Gained: 12ish lbs Total

Pregnancy Woes:

  • Round Ligament Pain. Can’t move too fast in one direction or my (non-existent) ab muscles will not let me forget it. My yoga teacher told me it was all normal and gave me a few stretches I can do to help. I thought it might have been Braxton Hicks, but I don’t think it is anymore. Just my body growing along with the baby. And anything that reminds me that the baby is growing is exciting regardless.
  • Slowing Down. I can’t walk around stores for 8 hours at a time. My dogs are barking by the end of the day and I slept well this week.
  • Reading about Delivery. I went to the library to get some books on preparing for labor, but after flipping through and seeing some of the pictures (ewwww!) I put them back on the shelf and walked out. Perhaps it’s better to go in blind. Ladi-ladi-da. Butterflies and rainbows, right?

Pregnancy Loves:

  • Yoga. It’s part workout. Part therapy. Part Childbirth Prep. Part “me” time. I always leave feeling strong, empowered, light and happy. It’s a total endorphin booster. This week we did a lot of things that will directly help with giving birth. And um… we did kegals!!? (TMI)

Items we got for the baby:

  • Crib & Dresser (That’s enough for one week!)

Goal for this week:

  • Attend a mom-to-be social hour

    Just when I think you can’t look any happier… you manage to. 🙂 You are looking so extra beautiful and like you’re overflowing with excitement these days, Kel!! I’m so impressed with how organized you and Irving are too. Love reading your updates!

  3. Ah, you look so happy and excited in all your pictures! i can’t wait for the little one to get here!

  4. You look great!!!!! That’s so exciting to purchase some items for baby. The husband and I did the stroller test driving the other week and I was surprised the he was very opinionated on the topic. Ha! I am dying to try prenatal yoga since I’ve had to stop doing Bar Method classes. Are you going to a special studio for it?

    • Kelocity Says:

      Thanks! You’ll love yoga. I found a studio that specializes in prenatal yoga. The teacher is fantastic. I’m sure you’ve got great studios near you too. Try a google search or a local message board for pregnancy in your area. =)

      I should try swimming too since you are loving it. It sounds amazing to be weightless and get a good workout in. You motivate me!
