22 weeks pregnant

I’m now 22 weeks pregnant.
I totally forgot to do my pregnancy update last week!    But if you didn’t catch my 20 week update check it out!

This week baby boy is apparently the size of a spaghetti squash (nope, I don’t know what that is either!) but he is around 28cm head to toe and weighs about half a kilo!

Here’s me this week:

Bump Measurement: 37.5 inches (only +1 inch in three weeks which shocked me as I feel so much bigger!!)

Weight: 59.4kg (+3.2kg in one month Wow!!!!!)

Getting lots and lots of movement still from our little guy which is still amazing!  I love watching my tummy move from his kicks!

I had a midwife appointment this week and all was normal!  Nothing exciting to report there, booked in to see her again in a months time!

We’ve been out and about lots the last couple of weeks as Mark has been off work!  It’s been great to be doing lots of walking around and of course it’s good to have the energy to do that too at the moment!  It’s good timing before tiredness kicks in again in the third trimester!
One day last week we went to the island of La Digue and probably walked a little too far but I slept very well that night and was fine the next morning!
It’s been good to remind myself that I can (and should be) still be walking good distances!!
I’m also about to start an online pregnancy fitness programme which I’m really excited about!  I’ll be blogging more about that soon!!

April is the hottest time of year in Seychelles and it really has been hot!   It can be hard when it’s like this to drink enough water when you’re not pregnant so it definitely is harder to keep on top of it being pregnant (and running after a toddler)

This week I had my birthday so I took the opportunity to dress up a little which I never do these days so here’s me and the bump a little dolled up!

I thought I’d got over the cravings stage but this week I have not been able to get enough of grapefruit and lemonade together!  So yummy!!  I find it interesting that all my cravings have been for sharp tasting thigs!!

Still no name decisions have been made!!!

I’ll be back next week with my 23 week pregnancy update!
