How far along? 22 weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: Ummm, don’t really want to think about this… Can I make the excuse that I cannot see the numbers when I stand on the scales as my bump is too big?
Stretch marks?: Hopefully, nothing much going on. Trying to get back into the habit of using L’Occitane’s Almond Supple Skin Oil, which I loved last time around.
Sleep: Not so good, unfortunately. However, the midwife told me earlier this week that my iron level test came back a bit low, so I’m on iron supplements now and I’m really hoping that these kick in soon and I can feel less tired – pretty please!
Best moment this week: Hearing gyermek’s heartbeat for the first time and being told that I needed iron supplements, as this should make me less tired.
Worst moment this week: Hmm, I guess being told that I needed to take iron supplements – the side effects do not look so pleasant…
Movement: Quite a bit of movement these days, very low down.
Belly button in or out?: Still in but I’m expecting this to change in the next few weeks.
What I miss: Feeling balanced. Now my centre of gravity has shifted but I forget that when changing from lying to standing or when exercising. At my training session yesterday, I had to helped up from the floor exercises a good few times.
What I am looking forward to: The weekend! And actually being able to spend some time with Husband. He’s working long hours these days and is getting home at around 8.30pm. Unfortunately, I feel so tired after work and looking after Little O that I am tucked up in bed by 8pm!
Milestones: The appointment with the midwife yesterday (the first after my initial “checking-in appointment” and getting to hear gyermek’s heartbeat for the first time.
