Pregnancy Blog :: Week 22

This week baby has become REALLY active. Somersaults, drum-playing, football, maracas... you name it, baby is up to it!

Baby seems to have started responding to food (I'm sure Lara did from an earlier stage). About 20 -30 minutes after eating, I often get a lot of activity, or... (if its something baby isn't too keen on) a bout of nausea.

This morning we were listening to Christmas music and baby started wiggling and kicking along to the music - I believe that at 22 weeks its ears are just starting to form and process low frequency sounds so you never know, Frank Sinatra may be just the thing!

I've also begun to find everything an enormous effort. Just walking up the stairs to my office at work feels like I've climbed a mountain. This worries me as I still have a long way to go and the bump is definitely going to get heavier.

I can feel my body stretching and re-arranging itself now. If I sit in the same position for a long time, my back aches like nothing on earth and i can feel the weight of my body weighing down on my pelvis when I walk. Ho hum.

Right then peeps, have a wonderful Christmas... see you on the other side.
