22 weeks!!! So this whole pregnancy thing is sort of flying by…kinda scares me sometimes. I guess I do have quite a bit of time left but seriously, where did April go? Is the time flying by for anyone else? I need it to slow down just a tad.
Overall, I feel fine. I get pretty tired still but I think that’s normal. Other than that, all is well!
So, I feel like I kinda popped out recently? I suddenly look pretty large and in charge! Here’s my 22nd week recap:
How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain: 12 pounds. I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and have gained 3 more pounds since last time. Not too shabby!
Maternity clothes? YES! When I was home this past weekend I went major maternity clothes shopping. I’ve been using the belly band but I think it’s time for real maternity pants. I bought tons of t-shirts, tank tops, shorts, jeans, and a dress…think I’m good to go!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Been pretty good. I miss sleeping on my back. I catch myself in the middle of the night on my back and roll over to my side. Side sleeping is okay but definitely not my favorite.
Best moment this week: Hearing her heartbeat again yesterday! I love that-it’s so cool. I love her kicks too especially when my husband feels them.
Miss Anything? No I’m pretty good in that regard.
Movement: Yep she moves all the time! I actually just felt her moving on top of my bladder I think? Or pushing on it? It’s a pretty weird sensation.
Food cravings: Besides chocolate? Nope. I’m pretty sure the chocolate cravings are not related to pregnancy :).
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: GIRL! My boy predictions were wrong!
Labor Signs: Nope…luckily.
Symptoms: Just sleepy. I get cramps in my legs sometimes at night and other random preggo symptoms but nothing crazy.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Feeling her more and more. I suddenly feel kinda big which scares me because I know I’m going to get way bigger. I’ve started looking around at registry stuff which is fun but intimidating since I have no clue what I’m doing!
Exercise: This week’s been okay. I went to prenatal yoga and lifted some weights..that’s about it. This weekend at the Blend Retreat we’ll be doing lots of working out: yoga, hiking, and bootcamps. I’d love to do all of them but we’ll see…depends on how I feel. I’m not sure how much bootcamping I can do but I’ll try!!
So right now our little gal is around the size of a papaya!! According to thebump.com, the average fetus at this age is around 10.5-11.8 inches and weighs between 12.7-20.8 ounces- around a pound!! Next week apparently the little one is a size of a pomegranate which confuses me….papaya’s seem bigger to me? I guess these things aren’t official.
I’m working for a couple hours then off to Boulder for Blend!!
What are your weekend plans?
