Week 22: Papaya

"Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop."

How far along? 22wks & 6 days!

Maternity clothes? Just when I thought my bump was growing, at least 5 people this week told me "you don't look pregnant" after finding out how far along I was. Umm I promise I am! Baby bump where are you??

Stretch marks? No stretch marks and I'm applying anti-stretch mark cream.

Sleep? I'm only comfortable sleeping on my left side, which isn't very comfortable to do the entire night. Still this.

Best moment this week My first appointment with my midwife group was on Wednesday and I got to hear our little guy's heart beat again (in the high 140's). I actually enjoyed this appointment, it was so completely different than a doctors visit. They took the time to answer my questions and get to know my pregnancy without rushing out of the room.

Movement? We took him to his 2nd hockey game on Wednesday (via the womb) and he was moving like crazy thoughout the entire game!

Food cravings? Still craving fruit.

Gender? It's a Boy!!

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss? I miss not getting random bloody noses and heart burn.

What I'm looking forward to? Getting our nursery furniture!

Weekly Wisdom: Please don't tell a pregnant hormonal women that she "doesn't look pregnant".

Milestones: We started our Bradley classes!

Emotions: Just happy.

22 weeks & 6 days pregnant
