Mommy Monday: 22 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

25 November 2013

How far along? 22 weeks today!
Total weight gain/measurements: Weighed in at 133lbs this week so up 2lbs from last week.  That's a total of 18lbs gained since pre-pregnancy. Holy moly. But it definitely shows...this bump is way bigger than the last one! 
Maternity clothes: In this outfit, only the jeans are maternity but I do feel like I need to go shopping for some more tops as I'm running out of things that fit! 
Stretch marks? No new ones, although I do think my bellybutton ones from last time are looking more visible as the skin stretches!
Sleep: Perfectly fine. I still don't need a pregnancy pillow! This is amazing! 
Best moment this week: There was no specific "best moment", but feeling the baby kick & move more was my favourite part :)  
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: Lots - and it's getting stronger everyday which is very comforting. I love feeling the baby move, it's such a bonding experience for me.
Food cravings: No but I'm definitely still liking savoury things over sweets.
Anything making you queasy or sick? My iron supplement is making me feel a bit queasy but I do take it in the morning so that's probably why. I also have quite low blood pressure especially when pregnant and had a dizzy spell this morning which was a bit scary. I just need to drink more water and eat happened at about 9am when I was finishing up my makeup and I hadn't eaten since I'd woken up an hour prior.
Gender: Boy!
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Heartburn. I get it the most after I have soup, which is annoying because I love eating soup & bread for my lunch! My leg hair has stopped growing again like last time which is such an amazing bonus of being pregnant! My boobs are absolutely huge and I'm so sick of them already...ha ha. I actually had a very vivid and weird dream about breastfeeding recently. I was panicking because I hadn't breast fed in over 2 months and I didn't know if there would be any milk left for the new was so strange! 
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody this week, sorry! I am so emotional at the moment and everything is making me cry!
Looking forward to: Thanksgiving this week!
