Bump Day Stats - 22 Weeks
How far along: 22 Weeks
Size of baby: 11 inches and almost 1 pound. The size of a spaghetti squash, also the size of a barbie doll. Me and my barbie doll baby.
Stretch Marks: Not yet. Skin is getting super tight though. My belly button must be feeling the effects because it gets super itchy sometimes due to stretching. I want it to pop out!
Sleep: Omg. I am in so much pain. My office chair at work KILLS my back and by the end of the day I am hobbling due to lower back pain. I have been going to bed with a heating pad on it. My hips also hurt when I lay on my side, so when I get in bed I spend about 5 minutes just propping pillows around and under myself so I can be comfy. I have the Todays Mom pregnancy pillow. It's nice and I am glad I have it, but I don't like the fabric of the Coolmax version that I have.
Cravings: Everything sweet. I am normally all about salty stuff but now I just want cookies and cake and anything like that.
What I miss: Umm, having no back pain.
Looking forward to: Making the crib bumper with my sister.
Symptoms: Back pain. Mild nausea is back. I am just glad that the throwing up has not returned, but I feel like I have reverted back to the first trimester where I had to constantly eat to keep the sick feeling away.
Worst moment this week: Not really any terrible moments this week.
Best moment this week: Loved making baby blankets with my friend Randi. We made stamps out of foam, wood blocks, and sweet potatoes. They were so much fun!
