It’s gotten to that point in the pregnancy…

That’s right, dear readers, I have embraced the ‘use a hair tie to expand the waistline of my pants’ phase of my pregnancy:

But soon I fear I will need to fork out the money to buy a Belly Belt (about $26 – !!! – from my local BigW). Perhaps it shall be my first purchase with my first paycheque from my new job…

22 Weeks

This week, BabyC is the size of a:
How far along? 22w6d
Due date: 21/11/12
Total weight gain/loss: +6kg
Maternity clothes? yes-ish – I’ve divided my wardrobe into “my belly will keep fitting in this” and “not for very much longer” groupings
Sleep: happens, but not sure I’m getting ‘good’ sleep lately (feeling exhausted a lot of the time)
Best moment this week: Getting the all-clear for BabyC after we had a (really scary) car accident
Movement: Lots and often
Food cravings:protein and fresh salad… and sweets
Symptoms: getting hormonally emotional over the smallest things!
Labor Signs: not yet, too early
Stretch Marks? not yet
Swelling? not yet
Belly Button in or out? still in
Feeling toward Pregnancy: feeling more ‘pregnant’ and less ‘fat/bloated looking’
What I miss: being able to fit into some of my clothes
What I am looking forward to: really looking forward to meeting our little one (but do not want her to come earlier than she is ready!)
Milestones/News: 22 week antenatal appointments with doctor and midwives (and signed up to be ‘followed’ by a student midwife); having a car accident while pregnant (that’s news, right?)

20 Weeks & BabyC is a…

This week, BabyC is the size of a: melon (27cm)
How far along? 20w5d
Due date: 21/11/12
Total weight gain/loss: +2kg
Maternity clothes? yes-ish – I’ve divided my wardrobe into “my belly will keep fitting in this” and “not for very much longer” groupings
Sleep: is a bit rubbish – Dan ended up buying me a ‘body pillow’ so I have something to hug my legs around and rest my belly on
Best moment this week: having our 20 week scan – it all seems so real now! – and finding out BabyC is growing well and is healthy (ten fingers, ten toes, no tail)
Movement: definite kicks in my lower tummy (happening right now, probably thanks to the sugary milk drink I just had)
Food cravings:protein and fresh salad and sweets
Symptoms: getting hormonally emotional over the smallest things!
Labor Signs: not yet, too early
Stretch Marks? not yet
Swelling? not yet
Belly Button in or out? still in
Feeling toward Pregnancy: feeling more ‘pregnant’ and less ‘fat/bloated looking’
What I miss: being able to fit into some of my clothes – I keep looking at my stuff and and stuff in shops and having these mini meltdowns 😦
What I am looking forward to: upcoming appointments next week for doctor and midwife, so hopefully get to know more about our little one; continuing with our Calmbirth course; meeting our little one!
Milestones/News: finding out BabyC is a GIRL!!! Attended our first Calmbirth course on Saturday just gone; had my VitD blood test on Friday just gone

hence her new nickname!)
