Week 22 Pregnancy Update
How far along?
22 weeks and 6 days.
Total weight gain?
Still no idea, sorry. I'm really not getting hung up about it at all. I imagine I have put on a fair bit of weight, but it mainly seems to just be my bump and any weight that I put on there is fine by me. I'm eating when I'm hungry and eating some naughty things like chocolate and cake, but in the main my diet has been pretty healthy and not that different to before. I'm trying to make sure I have plenty of healthy snacks to hand like fruit and nuts.
I've been wearing mainly maternity clothes and I have a new found love for jeans. I have just won a couple of bids on maternity clothes on eBay so I hope they are OK. I'm trying hard not to spend too much money on clothes when I have so many other things I need to buy, but I'm getting pretty bored with my limited wardrobe choices!
None yet. I'm still alternating between Clarins Firming Body Treatment and Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter. They're both natural products and I love how my skin feels after using both.
I've been really struggling with sleep this week. I've had bad indigestion and heart burn at night and I've had sinusitis and a bit of a chest infection which have all kept me awake. I've not been feeling great.
Best moments of the week?
I've been feeling pretty sorry for myself this week but we ordered a cot today which feels good and we bought a few baby girl clothes on Saturday. I've not done a great deal other than work and sleep!
Worst moment this week?
Today was quite bad. I've had a cold which turned into sinusitis and a chest infection. I had been going to work feeling a little poorly for the past two weeks, but it all got a little too much for me today and I was sent home. Hopefully I'll feel a lot better after a couple of days of rest. I'm already feeling better than I was.
Red hot, steamy bubble baths and all the medication I usually use for my sinuses. Whenever I have a cold I'm prone to developing sinusitis and I usually use everything I can get my hands on from tablets, to sprays, to decongestant rubs and I'm finding it really hard not being able to use any of them.
Yes, but quite sporadic still. There's no regular moving pattern or times although I often seem to notice her moving first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It could just be because I'm resting and these times and more tuned into it.
Still chocolate! I can't get enough and I'm craving really good chocolate like Hotel Chocolat and Green and Blanks and anything with a high cocoa content.
Anything making you feel queasy or sick?
Just coughing! Whenever I cough and cough it makes me gag!
We are having a baby girl and I love knowing and being able to prep. We have made a huge list things we need and we are starting to get things for the nursery.
The only pregnancy symptom I have really had this week is heart burn and indigestion. It's something I never suffered from before I was pregnant, but I have had it every day for the past week.
Belly button in or out?
Still in, but it a little bit more shallow than it used to be.
Happy or moody most of the time?
I've been feeling a little bit sorry for myself this week.
Looking forward to?
Going pram and nursery shopping on Saturday and visiting my favourite vegetarian restaurant with my husband on Friday night.
