How far along: 22 weeks and 3 days (Picture taken at exactly 22 weeks)
Baby’s size: Size of a papaya. Approximately 1.2 pounds and 8 inches long. Big growth in the belly this week…..or at least it feels like it. Heart Rate was 160 at doctors appointment.
Sleep: Sleep has not been kind to me lately. I can’t seem to get comfortable, I toss and turn all night, and am hurting everywhere. I am up and down all night and am awake more than asleep. I am so fatigued throughout the day I can’t seem to function very well. I try to catch naps on the couch but I don’t think I am ever getting into a deep REM sleep. Definitely starting to catch up with me. I nearly fell asleep during a game of monopoly with my 5 year old. Yikes…..This momma is exhausted.
Best moment this week: My husbands birthday was Sunday. Me and him went out on Saturday for lunch and ran a couple of errands then Sunday we got together with family and friends for bowling and dinner. We completed the birthday with blackberry cobbler and vanilla ice cream. He had a great day and was definitely glad to have the “first” birthday without his mom under his belt.
Worst moment of the week: Definitely just the fatigue. It has kept me from making progress on the nursery, working very many hours on our home business or even cooking and taking care of housework. I have literally been a zombie. Not a very useful person!!
Movement: Moving like crazy. When I’m tossing and turning at night we enjoy our bonding time together. I can talk to him and he will respond with a kick or a punch. He also likes to kick the doctor when she is checking the heart beat. Ha!
Cravings: Fruit of any kind. Watermelon, cantaloupe, kiwi, bananas, apples etc. You name it I have been craving it. Too bad most of it really isn’t in season and tastes a little off. I have been filling up on bananas and thankfully they have kept my leg cramps at bay. I suffered from those with both prior pregnancies and haven’t had any with this one. So (knock on wood) I’m going to keep eating those nanners!!!
Missing Anything: Energy! I would like just a small slice of energetic pie!!
Queasy or sick: I think the nausea that I skipped out on first trimester has decided to appear. I have been queasy all week and threw up last night. Haven’t had a fever but chills have been plaguing me at night and just an overall yucky feeling. I think it’s a combo of the weather, fatigue and approaching that third trimester. Hoping it will all even out here in a few days or so.
Looking forward to: Super Bowl Sunday!!!! Planning a little menu for me, the hubs and the munchkins and getting our jerseys washed and all ready to go. We are very excited and hope for a big victory come Sunday!
Baby item of the week: I’m in the process of crocheting Gavin a baby blanket. Who knows if it will actually be done by the time he is here but I’m trying to get it completed. I thought it would be good to do in my spare time until I remembered I don’t have much of that. haha!! I tend to always take on more than I can chew! Oh well at least I try! 🙂
