Baby Herschberger: Week 22

My week was sort of awful, but a lovely long weekend away made up for it. I have been getting increasingly overwhelmed at work as the countdown to my last day ticks down. I’ve got about 8 weeks left and I’m just not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel between feeling so behind that I’m never going to catch up/miss deadlines, and feeling internal pressure to get my office organized and a training plan laid out for when my replacement starts (which hopefully will be in 4 weeks).

And on top of feeling more behind/overwhelmed than I ever have I am pregnant and sometimes can’t form a thought and have heightened emotions. Awesome.

By the end of the week I was asking my co-workers for forgiveness, my boss for help, and my husband was praying for me to let it all go and have a nice weekend away with him.

I was able to pretty much put it aside and we had a wonderful time away in Cincinnati and Indianapolis. Here are the highlights (and one bummer):

And that is the gist of the weekend! I guess one other thing is I got my birthday present, a new purse! I was planning to get a black purse but fell in love with a cognac purse that has black stitching. I got it at T.J. Maxx and it’s London Fog. Alt text

«Pregnancy Update»

Weight gain: I’m skipping it this week. I didn’t weigh myself while we were gone, I’m already a day late on this post, and I’m fasting from social media tomorrow so I’m not going to get on and update tomorrow.

What I’ve been eating: Nothing weird. Just eating plenty.

Baby/pregnancy purchases: SO many things! All the fun IKEA stuff for the nursery, a bunch of books for baby Si, and I got quite a few maternity clothes over the weekend, 2 pairs of jeans, a cute top, a pair of shorts, and 2 tank tops!

Babies growth and development status: At 22 weeks baby Si should weigh about a pound, but he already weighed that over a week ago, so he’s probably more than that now! He’s about the size of a papaya and is looking pretty cute these days! Facial features are pretty much formed, it’s time to chunk up now!

Other pregnancy tidbits:

That’s all I’ve got for now. I’ve had such a lovely weekend and now it’s time to unwind, unpack, and get a good nights sleep before going to work tomorrow!
