22 Weeks

How far along? 22 weeks 6 days

How big is baby? 10.8 inches & 1 pound! A large grapefruit. 

What is Baby doing this week? Time to watch what we say (don’t we always?!) – baby is now able to hear outside noises from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. His/her nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby’s starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12-14 hours a day. It shouldn’t be hard to figure out when- just need to pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop. 

Weight Gain? 10 lbs, I can’t believe I’ve gained 10 lbs, I know its a healthy weight gain but its crazy seeing that scale every week slowly go up.

Belly: Present.

Maternity Clothes? Yes, but I’m still finding clothes that I can fit into. 

Stretch Marks? Not yet…

Sleep? No problems there.

Symptoms? Calf cramps!! Ouch. 

Best moment this week? My RMT appotiment, with all this running and getting my first calf cramp it was amazing seeing Amber- she takes such good care of me!
We also went and picked Raspberries and Blackberries– yummy!! Can’t wait to make jam.

Miss Anything?
 Nothing this week.

Movement? Yup, little kicks. 

Food cravings? Done with the sours, now onto sweets!! Cookies, brownies… its bad.. so bad, but so good!!

Food aversions? Nothing new. 

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope

Have you started to show yet? Yes. 

Gender? The Newest wives tale,

                  If your placenta is on the right side- your having a boy,
                  If its on the left- your having a girl.
                  Guess its a girl.

Labor Signs? Nope

Belly Button- In or Out? In

Wedding Rings- On or Off? On

Mood? Feeling good! 

Exercise: Doing morning runs. Ran another 6kms- this time in 41 minutes. 

Looking forward to: Our next prenatal group class. Our midwives have a monthly group of woman and their partners who are all due around the same time as us, and we get our belly checks and then learn about pregnancy, and about birthing… (that part scares me!)

Preparing for Baby by: Trying to figure out the nursery, also booking photographers for maternity and lifestyle newborn. 

On a side note, 43 more shifts to go before maternity leave!!
(Just over 3 months)
