22 Weeks and a Name Reveal!

Weight Gain: Up 14 pounds. Yup, I exploded. 5 pounds in two weeks. I've actually been eating pretty well, so I'm just going to go with it. I was starting to get quite quite a complex with my weight gain because all I could think of was that I didn't gain any weight with Hunter until after week 18. Well, then I pulled out my pregnancy journal and realized I gain 13 pounds between week 18-23. Wowza! Feeling a bit better. 

Stretch Marks: Same old ones. 

Movement: Constantly feeling this babe kick and move! 

Cravings: Cereal with fresh strawberries or blueberries in it. 

Sleep: Awesome! I'm in a new routine. I'm been staying up until 11pm and waking up to make Jesse's lunch right before he leaves at about 7:30am. No middle of the night wake ups to go to the bathroom or check the time. It's pretty amazing!

Best Moment this Week: Seeing my lope sided belly. I could very much tell that this little guy was sticking out his booty. Oh yeah, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I am loving that my boobs are growing, even if it's temporary, I'll take what I can get! :)

Gender: A boy

Labor signs: Nope 

Maternity Clothes: Yup, most of the time. 

What I miss: Not a whole lot :)

What I'm looking forward to: Watching this baby grow

Oh yeah, and we agreed on this little guy's first name! Baby #2 is Hudson!

We are still very undecided on the middle name, but are playing around with three that we pretty much like equally. I know most people don't like to share names until the baby is born or until at least they are 100% certain of the name, but heck, I'll share are top three middle names:

Drake (a male mallard duck...due to Jesse's duck hunting obsession)
Harold (my paternal grandfather's first name)
Turner (my maiden name)

So there ya go, chances are that we are going to have a Hudson Drake, Hudson Harold, or Hudson Turner. Feel free to give me your opinion! 


  1. Yay! I vote Hudson Drake, it sounds very handsome like a Mad Men character, or a superhero's alter ego!

  2. I like Hudson Turner, I like the history behind it and I think it flows nice! Congrats!

  3. Love them all...Hudson Drake Doyle

  4. I like Harold, unless you have a third boy and want to name him Harold :-).

  5. Love the name you chose for your little guy! And I like all of your middle name choices (and meaning behind them), but I really like the flow of Hudson Turner!

  6. Hudson Turner Doyle for sure!

  7. LOVE Hudson! I'd go with Turner, very sweet to incorporate your family name :)

  8. Hudson is such a cute name!!

  9. You look beautiful! My vote is for Hudson Turner. I love that there's meaning behind it. I'm a fan of using a mother's maiden name. And it sounds so sophisticated!


Jesse is active duty Air Force and is originally from southern Minnesota. He has also managed to become a follower of just about every hobby known to man (which drives his wife crazy!).

Henry was born on July 4, 2007. His hobbies include playing with his squeaker toys, barking a little girls, dock jumping, going to the dog park, and being spoiled rotten by his grandparents.
