22 Week Pregnancy Update by Shefali

Hello sweeties ๐Ÿ™‚

I am back and viral is almost gone ๐Ÿ™‚ Time seems to be brisk walking after I hit 21 weeks. Now I just want the time to start running ๐Ÿ˜€
This week I made ‘THE’ final shopping list. The things I want to purchase before the baby arrives. As I am due in peak winters I want to make sure I have a little extra of everything. I don’t want my elders to run around here and there. I want everyone to relax and be at home for the first 2 weeks at least.
As planned I will do a shopping list post separately ๐Ÿ™‚ I know I will end up adding a lot more to the list but never mind.
This week was full of body aches especially lower pelvic pain. I have been feeling so much pressure it scared it. It lasted for two-three days and then on the third day I saw that my tummy had grown quite a bit so I think it was the growth pain which seems to knock at my door almost after every two weeks. I also suffered from major leg cramps. Resting with my feet up helped a lot.
I have been reading and watching youtube videos extensively about cloth diapering nowadays. I want to share my stash with you all once its complete. Probably would take 2 more weeks. It ll be a super cute stash I promise. I am so excited about it.I have been spending a LOT on it but then that is how it goes with cloth diapering. Initial investment could bother you at first but in the long run its surely cheaper, cuter and healthier ๐Ÿ™‚ Here a sneak peak. The first reusable cloth diaper I bought along with cloth nappy pads ๐Ÿ™‚
I saw a big change in me. I do not want to have my favourite junk food :-O no outside food, no fried and no hogging. I have almost left all the junk. Even if hubby offers I simply say no. I don’t know how it happened but I am so glad about it. Well maggi is an exception. I eat it once in 10 days or so and that too atta maggi so I think I can ignore that much ๐Ÿ˜‰
Sadly I have stopped going for walks. Have zero energy to get ready and go out. Feeling super hot and humid. So no physical activity would mean even worse heart burns and unwanted weight gain. Lets see how I manage in the coming weeks. Atleast for now I have no energy at all. This week has been quite dull in general as well.

      • Navneet Thethi says:

        All fine with me but having bad skin n hair, did u experienced anythng such?

        • i got 2 pimples in first tri which were quite bothersome. took time to go and have left marks too. hair fine.. no hair loss..they are better..and touchwood now skin is mostly glowing! i had read that body hair grows faster as well but its the opposite in my case.. all hormonal na so i guess everyone reacts differently to it..

  3. hi i used to get the odd pain in the butt around 5th -6th month, basically that is the baby shifting its head so your uterus touches your sciatica nerve. in such a case, just lie down on the non-paining side. this generally took care of the pain for me. not to forget extra rest is always good.

  4. u look great every time u share ur pic. more and more pretty each time ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Shef, try lying on your left side while I have pelvic pressure, leg cramps or heart burns. It helps. Have u tried the body pillow yet??

  6. You are a hot mommie Shef.One does come across this kind of pain in the fifth month but in one or two weeks everything gets fine

  7. I meant going to be a hot mommie
