As the Bump Grows: Week 22

April 21, 2014 As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 3

We’re on to Week 22 of my pregnancy. I’m halfway through the 5th month and really enjoying being pregnant. This is definitely the golden month of pregnancy. I don’t have nearly as many symptoms, and those that I do, don’t bother me as much right now. My appetite is back in full force, although no cravings. I’m hoping to get some good news this coming week, so here’s hoping!

And now for the belly shot:


It’s funny because when I look at my bump from my POV, it looks tiny, but then I look towards the side or in the front via a mirror and it’s clear I’m pretty huge. Will we have another big baby on our hands?

Baby Size: About the size of a “Spaghetti Squash” – 1lb, 11in
Gender: Girl!
Movement: A good amount so far. I’m starting to feel the kicks at different parts of the bump, so that’s great. One time I felt something totally different, like she was tumbling in there. It was the craziest feeling!
Weight Gained: My scale broke and I’ve yet to get a new one, but I’m guessing 2-3lbs with the way I’ve been eating.
New Pregnancy Symptoms: None.
Cravings/Aversions: None, although I have been loving dumplings, mac n cheese, and PB&J sandwiches! No aversions.
Sleep Changes: Last night I felt my first bout of insomnia for some reason. I woke up around 4AM and couldn’t fall asleep for like 2-3 hours.
How I’m Feeling: I’m feeling much better this week. I’m very content with life right now, except, of course, stressed from my upcoming exam. I’ve just been trying to keep myself busy and finding things I like to do to keep the negative feelings at bay.
Anything Else: I know last week I said we’re pretty set on a name, but this week, it’s pretty much up in the air right now. I’m so indecisive and seriously can’t pick the right one for her! I swear, I’m about to make a poll for people to vote on.

Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!

    Aww you’re adorable! I miss being pregnant and following those books that showed you the size of your baby each week and everything new they could do like when they start to hear your voice etc. Glad that it’s going well and hopefully the insomnia won’t stick around.
