Pregnancy | 22 weeks

How far along? 
22 weeks.

Size of baby?
This week the baby was approx the size of a papaya. [length wise] 

Any news this week?
I'm officially a whale! No really, what the hell happened this week?! Look at the size of my bump! At 22 weeks!! I look ready to give birth! I feel huge and getting really uncomfortable already. He's moving around lots tho which is fab! Actual twisty turney movements, and I've started to see his movements on the outside too, which is fab for James and Bradley to see. I'll be lying or sitting and then I'll see a little ripple or a bump popping out. :)

This week I've mainly been in maternity jeans or maxi skirts. This warm weather has been pretty hard to dress in!!

This week I've been moisturising with the Sanctuary Body Butter (£10.00*) and Palmer's Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks (£2.10). 

Still very tired. I've also been getting really strong pains, I'm guessing they're braxton hicks, I can't seem to remember how they feel exactly, or if I got them this early on with Bradley. They're quite painful though, and very 'contraction' like. Ouch. 

Can't get enough sleep! Although getting a little uncomfortable.

Missing anything? 
Just being able to do things normally :) Housework usually calls for a nap afterwards! ;)

Yep, he's def learning a little dance routine in there daily!

Any purchases?:
James keeps buying him little outfits! :)

Best moment this week:

The movements have just been so lovely!!

Worst moment this week: 
The braxton hicks type pains have been quite painful if not a little worrying 
every time, they pass though so I'm pretty sure thats all they are.

Food cravings:
Ice lollies!!

Anything making you queasy or sick:


Belly Button in or out? 

Still in, but def changing, its getting smaller in there!! lol


Tired and quite hormonal.

Looking forward to:

Next week I reach my 24 week V day milestone.

Can't believe I'm now 23 weeks, 17 weeks to go!!

Keep up to date with me & my posts
