22 weeks bumpdate
How far along: 22 weeks
Total weight gain: 13 lbs
Maternity clothes: haven't bought any. But I have some I am using from a friend at church, and still making use of that belly band at work!
Best moment of the week: having my husband feel her kick! And I got to see her kick from the outside for two days! she turned around again, and is back to kicking near my hips, hoping she does a flip again (to be in the head down position) and starts kicking my up top again!! That was awesome!
Food cravings: chips.. tostitos.. mmm! and chocolate!
Food aversions: nothing
boobs sore- still there, way less prevelant though
tiredness- better since I am not sick anymore!!
irritability- back to normal. :)
acne- better this week!
bloat- I am going to say its all baby now. :)
burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- all gone!
Movement: yep! And I swear I feel the baby get stronger by the day!
What I’m looking forward to: my baby shower, in 2 months. :) I am really enjoying my pregnancy and where I am at right now!
What I miss: weighing less. but totally worth it, obviously. :)
Next appt: September 25th.
How big is baby:
At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment.
If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily. (taken from baby center)
