22 Weeks

 

week-22

22 Weeks already! Had a verrrry cold week with temps below 0 all week, with windchill as cold as -17! Also got (almost) all the Christmas presents wrapped and under the tree!

Symptoms: Just tired! Who knew being awake for more then 2 hours in a row took so much energy! Also starting to feel “Big”…bought maternity clothes off craigslist as my “normal clothes” officially do not fit, and it takes energy to get up from sitting or doing up my shoes/boots.

Milestones: BABY is moving! Feeling her rolling around and fish flopping daily now…usually in the morning and early afternoon… Hoping this means she plans on being awake in the day and sleep at night come April! At my prenatal appointment this week her heartbeat came in at 158, and my belly is measuring small, but I was told not to worry, just means I “carry well”.

All About Baby

  • Now that she’s got more developed eyes and lips, he’s looking even more like a newborn.
  • She’s sleeping in cycles — about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they’re probably those times you’re not feeling any kicks!).
  • As her digestive system preps for the outside world, she’s manufacturing meconium — the tarry black substance you’ll find in her first dirty diaper (ew)!
  • If it’s a girl, she’s already got a lifetime’s supply of eggs in her womb — about six million of them!
