22 WEEKS PREGNANT
Baby is the size of a spaghetti squash! WHAAAT. That seems HUGE to me! Look at what the baby looks like according to the baby center app I use.
HE LOOKS LIKE A REAL HUMAN. It’s wild to me.
Symptoms: Anxiety has been bad again. It definitely goes in and out – some days are fine, others are more anxiety focused. My belly has gotten harder and definitely bigger as well! I’m peeing SOOO much more. I know it’s just going to get worse but SHEESH it’s literally at least like 6x per night. And during the day? Forget it. Round ligament pain has been happening a bit. My nose is often stuffy, scabby, and bleeding. Sexy. My back has also been hurting and especially at night I have to crack it on the foam roller in order to get somewhat comfortable at all.
Foods I’m Loving This Week: Brussel sprouts. I’ve been craving them, it’s weird. Homemade vegetable soup. Acai Bowls.
Cravings: Poke, WHICH I CAN’T EAT. It just sounds so good.. and a glass of wine, too. but ya know, I got about 4 more months until any of that can go down haha.
Aversions: Nothing significant. Sometimes certain foods just don’t sound great, but I wouldn’t say anything is really an aversion.
Workouts: Workouts are going great! I feel a bit weaker some days and I’ve been a little more sore, but I’ve been lifting 5x per week and doing cardio probably 6x per week. I’m killllin it!
Sleep: Sleep has honestly been crap. It definitely has to due with my anxiety, but it’s been hard for me to fall asleep and then I wake up pretty early. I took a nap for the first time in like 2 months yesterday which was wonderful. Baby kicks a lot at night, too!
Weight Gain: Haven’t gained at all for about 8-10 weeks. Of course it still fluctuates a lot, some days I’m the same weight, some days I’m up 3 lbs, then down, etc. Just like a normal body 🙂
Other: We’ve been spending time with Matthew’s family and nephews and it’s getting me so excited for our own baby boy!!! Matthew’s family is a family of boys – dad had 3 boys and each boy has a boy. So they will certainly be close 😀
