Dues date Guess and 22/23 week Update

Baby Boy 2 is "officially" due September 27th.  My guess is he comes (or starts coming) on September 30th.  His big brother was born on a full moon and though I ended up having to be induced-- he was still a week overdue, was a "short" 5 hour active labor and was obviously ready to join us.  This year's September full moon begins at 11:19pm on September 29th.  Let me just go on record with my official labor prediction of September 30th. : )

But before weekly prego stuff... My sweet Blonde Boy 1 at 21 months old:

Loves to dance:

Without further ado... weeks 22 and 23...


Still 3 days a week with long weekend runs.  This past weekend I did 8 and then ran around all day and had an evening walk with the fam.  My prego muscles were beat but I have to say it's been MUCH better than running during the first pregnancy-- limited "need-to-pee" issues and other icky symptoms have stayed at bay this time!  Yay!

Weight gain:  Not sure but the belly is growing! 

Sleep:  Still Good... baby boy is getting more and more active at night!  I had more baby dreams last night as hubby and I went to bed talking about names...

Names:  Here are our "rules" for baby names... #1-- First name must be Biblical... all our first names are too.  Mark, Rachel, Nathan.... #2 If it's a boy they get 2 middle names (like Daddy and Boy 1) which the names should be named after someone.  Let me tell you... coming up with 2 middle names is the tough part!  At least Boy 1 kept the same middle names as his daddy which made it easy.  Boy 2 needs two middle names-- we aren't liking the names of many important men in our lives so we may use the first letters which limits options... not an easy challenge.

And finally... some bump photos... in the same shirt too... : )

22 weeks:
   and 23 weeks:


  1. So glad the running is going well. You still look so tiny in your bump photo - I swear I looked that big the day I realized I was pregnant. Ha ha. We found it very difficult finding same gendered names because we used so many of our favourites on the first boy!

    1. Ha! THanks! I figure as surely as this baby has to someday come out we will eventually get a name! : )

      PS-- Was cracking up over the old school like post!

  2. Good job on the runs and workouts!!

    Picking a name was the hardest thing! I was glad we didn't have a boy this time around since I had 0 favourite boy names!! Good luck deciding!

    1. We had a girl's name the last time but are having trouble with another boy's name! I can't believe how big your sweet girl is getting! Time flies, doesn't it?!
