22 Week Pregnancy Update

ย 



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. (Donโ€™t worry Iโ€™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!!). Iโ€™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. Iโ€™m sure that this stage isnโ€™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 didnโ€™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, heโ€™s a wriggler.

Gender:
BOY ๐Ÿ™‚

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 isnโ€™t nearly as bad so things are looking up.

Looking forward to:ย 
Having a full weekend off.

See you next week x
