22 Weeks - Pregnancy #4
Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week. I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly. I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.
How far along: 22 weeks
Size of baby: This little one is about 11 inches long (head to toe) and about the size of a spaghetti squash.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm up 10 pounds total as of my appointment.
Maternity clothes: spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, and cute/comfy shorts
Gender: boy :) 💙
Movement: I feel lots of little kicks and movements down low, so I know he's still breach.
Sleep: I had a few nights of wakefulness this week, but it wasn't terrible.
What I miss: I miss holding my kids on my lap. It's just not comfortable anymore.
Cravings: ice cream
Symptoms: visiting the restroom often, a little morning sickness each morning when I wake
Exercise: walking a couple of times a week at the mall, 15-20 minutes of yoga stretches before bed 2-4 nights a week,
Best moment this week: feeling this guy move so much and knowing we've come to an agreement on his first name :)
