22 Week Pregnancy Update

 



How far along:
23 weeks.

Days until due date:
119 days.

My bump:
Getting bigger every day!

Weight changes:
8st 6 (+11lbs total).

Stretch marks?
Nope, not yet. Still putting on Palmers Cocoa Butter every night before bed over my belly, boobs, hips & back.

Cravings:
I have been loving honeydew melon this week, a lot. Oranges have also made a comeback and ice cold water. (Don’t worry I’m not going all healthy on you haha).

Sleep:
Thankfully sleep has been a lot better this week, I am not tossing and turning until 3am anymore (hallelujah!!). I’ve had a little bit of back pain but it is nothing compared to last week, so I will class that as a win. Getting plenty of sleep and still feeling tired 3 hours after I get up but I am just making the most of sleeping while I can at the moment.

Symptoms:
Still feeling nauseous in the morning, but I am only actually sick about 2 out of 7 mornings though (again, result!).
Lots of headaches but they tend to come on at night just before bed when im getting hungry so I just have a pint of water, some toast and a paracetamol and it is gone within an hour or so.
Boobs are still leaking but I have just admitted defeat and wear nipple pads around the clock. I’m sure that this stage isn’t nearly as bad as when my milk actually comes in.

Best moment this Week?
Having a nice chilled out night with Ash on Sunday watching films and eating chocolate.

Worst moment this week:
Job interview that didn’t go too well. You can read all about it in my last post!


Miss anything?
Not much this week actually.

Maternity clothes:
No new ones, just wearing my maternity jeans out.

Movement:
Lots and lots of movement from the little one, he’s a wriggler.

Gender:
BOY 🙂

Belly button in/out:
Still in.

Mood:
Feeling loads better this week after I stopped crying over my job interview. The flu disappeared and my back pain isn’t nearly as bad so things are looking up.

Looking forward to: 
Having a full weekend off.

See you next week x
