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.

Gender: Boy!

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!

Yay for blanket stamping!!! So fun! You are WAY better at it than me by the way! Also You NEED a belly brace. They have them at motherhood and they are like $30. Do it! It saved my life when i was working while pregnant with Jude because i was always sitting to work on the computer... i think i need to pull mine our for editing.
