22 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 5 April 2015

22 weeks pregnant today and our baby boy is the size of a spaghetti squash (seriously who comes up with these things haha), and weighs roughly 430g at 28cm long. He's a definite mover now and loves to have a wiggle about in the evenings when I'm relaxing. I feel properly pregnant now and I'm loving my maternity clothes again!

We finally had our 20 week scan this week, when I was actually 21+1 weeks pregnant. The scan was great and baby is perfectly happy and healthy. I have a high anterior placenta, and he had his head snuggled under my ribs haha. Everything she checked was fine and I loved how in-depth it was - oh and he's definitely a boy!
Only slight concern we have now is how big our baby boy is! His head measurements were off the chart and the rest were very near the top too haha. We reckon he'll be taking after Jack as all of his family are 6ft plus, but we'll have to wait and see (I'll definitely be asking the midwife what she thinks though when I next see her though).

The only new symptom this week is sensitive (and absolutely enormous haha) breasts. They seem to be growing everyday and I'll definitely be needed to invest in some new bras soon. Just brushing past them sends shivers down my spine too, something I never had with Indiana!

The most exciting thing we did this week was purchase our double pram! With Indiana only being 20 months when he's set to arrive, and me not driving it was a must. We've gone for the iCandy Peach 3 Blossom in Jet - thank god for my bonus this month is all I'll say haha!

I'm unfortunately back to work after 2 weeks off tomorrow, so I'm sure I'll be back to moaning again next week - it's definitely work causing havoc with my back! We'll see in my 23 update next week.
