Bump Update - 22 Weeks
Baby boy is now around 28cm long and weighs about a pound. He is getting so big! He also looks like a mini newborn just a bit skinnier.
This week I feel huge. I know I say this almost every week but it's true. I feel baby boy all over my belly now so I defiantly know he is growing well in there. He now will kick back if we poke my belly which is fun. My bump growing does mean that my bump/groin area hurts if I walk too long or stand too long. My back ache has calmed down apart from sometimes when I wake up in the morning.
I feel like that although my bump has grown that where most of the extra weight has gone so far. My boobs are also huge! I wake up in a morning and they actually feel like weights on my chest! This is a main difference between this pregnancy and Paige's. I am the same size now as I was with Paige after my milk had come in! I still have 18 weeks to go... but I have to say I'm liking this symptom.
I'm still not sleeping too well and still tend to feel like rubbish and sick if I don't get enough rest. Sometimes it can't be helped when looking after Paige.
My appetite is still all over the place and I think it may be down to my iron tablets as this is a side effect. You can read more about my experience here.
My skin is still rubbish with quite a few break outs. My hair is lovely though and believe it or not I can go a whole week without washing it! I rarely so but that is madness to me. It just doesn't get greasy!
This week we finally bought something for baby boy. We left it long enough didn't we?! We only got two small things, some blue muslin squares and a giraffe comforter/blanket from Chester Zoo. I'll do a baby buys post when we get some more things for him. I'm hoping to go clothes shopping soon and pick up so cute bits.
Paige's pregnancy at week 22.
Don't forget to catch up with week 21.
