Wow It’s been a few weeks since I wrote my last pregnancy update, the weeks seem to be flying by and I can’t believe I am 22 weeks now and Christmas is just 2 weeks away! Not a huge amount has changed but let’s get on with the update so I can tell you what’s been happening since my last update.
How far along? 22 weeks
Maternity clothes: I have been obsessed with my Isabella Oliver tops over the past couple of weeks, the quality of their clothes are amazing and I’ve been living in them along with my H&M jeans.
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping OK, I’ve had a few nights of really vivid dreams and I do still have the odd night of getting up around 3 times which can be uber annoying but luckily I’m the kind of person that can fall straight to sleep again so that’s been alright.
Miss anything? Kind of missing my old body this week, the one I used to moan about continuously!
Movement: I have definitely noticed a pattern with baby Prideaux now, he likes to wake first thing in the morning and last thing at night when I’m lying in bed. I have also seen a few kicks from the outside now and have started to feel them too which is really nice, I love baby kicks!
Food cravings: No crazy cravings the last few weeks really apart from all things naughty, I have no control right now and it’s really making me a little frustrated as I’m feeling rather large and I’m definitely bigger now than what I was with Vinny at this stage although I think I am lighter weight wise which is odd.
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: I’ve had a bad back quite a lot this week just the lower part of the back and an achy body. I’ve also been quite emotional over nothing, for example Vinny accidentally head butted my nose before bed the other night and it made me cry… I have no idea why I cried as it wasn’t even that bad but my pregnancy hormones took over!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? I’ve been pretty meh this week, I have my happy moments but I have generally just been feeling a little more emotional than usual which I’m just putting down to hormones.
Best moment this week: Best moment over the past few weeks have been feeling my little bubba move more and more each day, I love feeling him kick from the outside and makes everything feel so real.
Looking forward to: I’m looking forward to my works Christmas party this weekend, I haven’t been to a Christmas party in a few years so it will be nice to have a good catch up with everyone and a yummy meal of course. I’m also looking forward to taking Vinny to his first ever birthday party, it’s his best friend Ruperts birthday from nursery and he has been so excited about it I just can’t wait to see how he plays and interacts with everyone he is such cutie!
How are you all and what are you most looking forward to this week?
