Week 22

How far along: 22 weeks 4 days

Baby H: weighs 450g and is 27.8 cm from crown to heel, about the size of an Ear of Corn.

Gender: Baby H is a BOY, you can read about the reveal HERE.

Total weight gain: + 2.4kg total which is 0.8kg lost since last week, once again my weight is till up  and down.

Sleep: I have struggled this week with sleep purely due to stress, if I am not stressed than I seem to get a pretty good nights sleep with only a few bathroom breaks.

Symptoms: My skin is starting to clear up slightly which I am pretty happy about, I’ve noticed a bit more back pain and the stretched ligaments issue but thankfully that is it really.

Cravings / Aversions: I haven’t been craving anything really lately, I am trying to really eat a healthy mix of foods which I think is helping stop any forms of cravings I would have.

Maternity Clothes: I have started wearing dark blue maternity jeans to work and still wearing loose shirts that I had since before pregnancy but I’ve noticed the buttons pop around my boobs sometimes so I think its time to get some new shirts.

Exercise: My prenatal aqua aerobic and yoga class starts back up again next week and I am still trying to get my steps in even though my fitbit died this week.

Mood: Positive, motivated, relieved.

Wedding rings: on

Belly Button in or out: Its currently an innie.

Movement: He kicks a lot around 9ish, its getting to the stage that I think Dylan might be able to feel him soon.

What I miss: Nice strong black coffee.

Preaclampisa: No real signs, blood pressure has gone back down and I haven’t noticed anymore swelling.

Best moment of the week: Finding out that I was there was nothing wrong with either of us after all the pain from the beginning of the week, you can read about that HERE.

What I am looking forward to: Spending this weekend down the coast with Dylan on our little Babymoon, I am so excited for a few days away I need a bit of a rest.

It has been a bit of a stressful week but I am so glad that everything is alright on the baby front, I worry so much about him already that it is nice when you find out you are just overreacting a little.

These past few days have made me realise just how lucky I am to have such a great pregnancy, this week was really the first bump in the road and it wasn’t even a real bump it was just paranoia and thankfully its all over.
