On Friday I will actually be 22 weeks, but due to some extenuating circumstances (aka internet issues) this one is a bit late!
What Fruit are you? This
week baby is the length of a banana.
appointment: Midwife appointment
Exercise: Maintaining my regular level of working out and doing the usual, a
mixture of weights, cardio and prenatal yoga.
Nothing that I’ve
clothes: Still all maternity pants (unless I’m at home in yoga pants), some
Sleep: Blech. That’s the sound I make when I realize that
I’m not getting a good nights sleep anymore.
Between the peeing, the vivid dreams and the just waking up throughout
the night I don’t feel well rested in the morning. And I’m not even uncomfortable yet! There is a lot of discomfort when I lie flat
though from the acid reflux, so if it’s bothering me I have to sleep propped up
and that helps.
cravings: Still nothing
reflux…. It’s getting worse and another 19 weeks of it does not sound fun! And why are stairs so difficult for us
pregnant folk? I’m in decent shape, I
work out, but give me a flight of stairs and I feel like I ran a marathon.
Still just little movements,
usually down really low. A couple of
times I have thought I could feel it from outside, but baby never stays moving
long enough for me to figure it out.
miss: People not thinking
it’s ok to basically call me fat. Hint
to the non-preggos, telling a pregnant girl that she’s not even showing and it
just looks like she’s been eating pizza is not a compliment! (Yes I actually
heard that this week, along with multiple other people telling me that I’m not
showing at all. I remember that my
stomach used to be fairly flat, but apparently they don’t.) I would rather look
pregnant and show than just be fat.
loving: That we are more than
half way. And yet that’s also scary.
looking forward to: Setting up the nursery. Hearing from
the midwife about the anatomy scan, hopefully everything is good, but I’m
getting kind of anxious about it.
this week: Baby co-operating at the ultrasound.
I was afraid that it would still be in the exact same position as last
week and I would need to go back again!
But I’m pretty sure they got all the pictures they wanted this week.
