22 Week Bump Date

This has been a quiet week – everything was fine at my midwifes appointment, and she said I could go one the ferry to waiheke island (I thought I would be fine, but needed to check) – so looking forward to that in a few weeks’ time. Have also been loving wearing maternity clothes at the moment. I am not normally one who cares much for dressing up, but am enjoying wearing maxi skirts and leggings (well not at the same time). I can’t believe how quickly time is going – it’s just crazy that we are already more than halfway. My hospital bed has been booked – so that’s one more thing to cross off the list too. Here is what the bump has gotten up to this week.

How far along: 22 weeks

Stretch marks: Nope

Movement: All the time

Currently craving: Egg and Mayo sandwiches – I am not sure if they are really cravings, and I don’t have my mind set on them, but they are super yummy, and are my lunch of choice at the moment

Total weight gain: 2.0 Kgs

Maternity clothes: Not really clothes – but hubby bought me Sketches GoWalk3’s – OMG they are the best shoe ever – a definite must for prego feet. Also maxi skirts and maternity tops with the elastic on the sides – my current t-shirts don’t fit anymore.

Sleep: My bladder seems to have shrunk, and am having to get up most nights to go to the bathroom – which then means I can’t get back to sleep.

Best moment this week: – Baby soccer kicked Brad this week on the way to work, it was the first time he felt the baby kicking.

Big Brother: Thinks that my belly button is a port to the baby – and kisses and talks to it through there all the time. He also seems to want to talk to it while I am pushing him in the trolley and tries to list my shirt up in the shops. He is adamant it’s a girl and refers to the baby as “her”.

Miss anything? Not really

Gender: no idea

Symptoms: Pain at the top of my stomach (midwife says it because the baby is moving on up) – also my pubic bone is starting to stretch – it was the same with Keaton – it’s the worst pain in the world – especially when I get up from lying down.
Labour signs: no

Belly button in or out? The top is starting to become an outie, the rest is still an innie

Wedding rings on or off? On

Looking forward to: My next scan at 30 weeks.
