22 weeks pregnant!

Another week has passed and I am not officially 22 weeks pregnant, though in my head I think I am only about 8 weeks! Time just seems to be whizzing by and I am so surprised to find that we are counting down the weeks rather than counting up! Only 18 more weeks!

What vegetable are you?

At 22 weeks Button is the size of a spaghetti squash (this pregnancy thing can be so educating, I had to google spaghetti squash!)

Do I feel pregnant?

I am tired but then I have been tired for years. Saying that I am starting to feel more tired when out walking and have to walk a bit slower now. We did go a nice 5 mile walk yesterday so it isn't stopping me going places but just enough to notice.

How big is bump?


Not yet which is great news as I am sure with Molly I had swollen fingers by now.


My boobs are starting to ache even more than normal, so much for easing in the second trimester.

Tiredness, heartburn and headaches have also been regular symptoms this week.

Baby update

At 22 weeks Button is now the size of a spaghetti squash measuring in at 20 cm long ad weighing  one pound now!

Baby Button now has eyebrows, eyelashes and possible hair on his or her head and can now make out the difference between light and dark.

Sounds can be heard by Button, whether that is my voice or noises within the body.

Touch is something that Button is exploring now as the brain and nerve endings develop.

  1. Totally with you on only feeling slightly pregnant, I don't know where the times going! Lovely bump! xx

  2. What a lovely bump! Glad you're not experiencing any swelling x

  3. It is so strange just how different this pregnancy is to first one and how little we think about it.

  4. Thank you. I am so worried about swelling and getting eclampsia like I apparently had last time (only noticed this in my notes).

  5. Oh what a gorgeous bump! Love it. Sorry I'm so late in reading, but thank you so much for linking up to #Maternitymatters x x
