22 weeks!

First of all, thank you so much for the comments and kind words regarding my grandma. I have a post coming updating more and I feel better knowing what I do now!


Today marks 22 weeks! I have 4 more weeks left in the 2nd trimester! WOW!

As you can see baby B is getting big!! (note the new floors, lol!! AND it's the same shirt as last time)


This week was when I REALLY started to feel pregnant. My feet are starting to swell but the past few days it's gotten better since it's not so hot here (aka=hell-like temperatures) I have also developed something called pregnancy induced carpel tunnel. Fun. If there is a pregnancy induced thing seems like I'm lucky enough to get it. Morning sickness? Check! Swelling? Check! I found this out because my hands (only when I am sleeping) go completely numb. I mean so numb I could probably bite off my finger and not feel it! My right wrist is painful too. So, asked the doctor and she told me to wear wrist guard things when I sleep. I need to get them tonight so I can sleep a whole night without getting up 30,000 times to shake my hands awake! I have been a walking zombie for the past few days and I'm sure that is it!

Baby B is moving around like a mad man in there! This past week, his flutters have gone to full fledged kicks and punches. Though, they are not strong they definitely can be felt! I didn't think I'd feel him this much since I have an anterior placenta but it doesn't seem to be stopping him!

We MIGHT have a name picked out. I will tell you that we decided that his middle name will most likely be Robert--after both our dads! (convenient that we both have dads with the same name so no one feels left out!)

(You can clearly see his spine and if you look closesly you can see his femur!)


Baby B weighs a pound now! Apparently, according to Wombtobloom--Your baby’s skin will begin to turn from transparent to opaque during week 22 of pregnancy. No longer could one see all of the blood vessels and interior contents of your baby. The skin isn’t quite how it will look at birth, but it is getting closer. It is changing to a pinkish, whitish color and soon will have wrinkles and creases. It is also getting thicker, with more fat deposits going in place under the skin.


Also, his brain is undergoing rapid growth stage (He is smart, I just know it, lol!), his liver is beginning to break down billrubin which will later be evident by all the dirty diapers!

I went to the doctor yesterday and complained about my wrists/hands which go numb and are so painful when I wake up . . . wrist splints for me too. Ugh, what a bizarre symptom of pregnancy?!

You look great!

Maria said...

I totally see his spine. That is amazing!!!

Mary said...

LMAO at the idea of you biting your finger off! You look so cute-I can't believe I haven't seen you in person since you got preggo. Maybe at karaoke?

Belly is looking good! :)

That's weird about the numbness when sleeping. Hope the wrist guards work.

Looking awesome!

I got carpel tunnel, too. It sucks and it hurts! No advice, it should hopefully go away when baby comes and the swelling in your joints etc goes down.
