Oh my Bump! is my weekly chronicling of this little pie baking away, and a sharing of the ebbs and flows of being two at a time. Its a wonderful journey of rising and falling hormones, the beating of two hearts, and a huge sea of change to the body. It love and life all the way.
22 weeks! That’s two weeks over the halfway mark, and now am finally beginning to show(!), look and feel pregnant. Phew! The clothes don’t fit anymore and the little bum is now over 11″. This week I went over a complete wardrobe overhaul, buying a whole new set of clothes, styles which I would never otherwise wear (read long maxi dresses) feeling like a completely new person. The only craving that has been making the rounds is that of walking. Yes! Instead of food I’ve been craving activity! Exercise, meeting people and fresh air. No more air-conditioning and lots of yoga! Besides the baby in my bump has been moving so so much that I almost feel like there is tournament game going on in there!
Baby B: 22 Weeks
Baby’s size? 11 inches
Maternity clothes? Yes. Loving the long flowy dresses that practically hide everything.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: A tad bit better considering the (almost) electronic ban imposed in the night! No more late night reading of articles off the blue light emitting screens. A bad bad cold though!
Best moment this week: Red Cheddar Cheese! Tastes absolutely divine. And yes the 10000 step walk mark!
Movement: YES! YES! YES!
Food Cravings: No cravings, none at all! Except for exercise 😀
Gender: No idea!
Symptoms: Dull aches and pains combined with a ton a gas which all go away when I walk around or stretch!
Wedding Rings – on or off? On!
Happy or Moody? Oh so moody!
Loving: Exercise! Being out of the house! Meeting people!
Reading: My Brilliant friend by Elena Ferrante (cannot believe how long this is taking to read!)
Compliments: A clothing designer went gaga over my height! Umm thanks Dad! And all the swimming!
Acne: Terrible terrible ones on the chin. Tried turmeric, salicylic acid facewash, steam breathing, nothing seems to work.
Drawing: Sun, Sun, Sun! Still not very happy with what to do for the commissioned art piece.
Dreaming of: Being an athlete! Ran my first marathon successfully in my sleep. Haha!
Looking Forward To: Dussehra!
