I got the idea to do weekly updates from another pregnancy blogger at Once Upon an Aspiration. I thought it was such a neat idea that I am going to adopt it for myself.
My weeks change every Friday, so I will do my very best to write the update weekly on Fridays. Here we go!
How far along?: 18 weeks!
Maternity clothes: I’m wearing almost all maternity clothes, and a few other things that are loose, baggy, or just big for me. Some of the other stuff still fits, but it’s just not comfortable. I still love my whirly skirt from Old Navy though!
Stretch marks: None spotted yet, thank God!
Sleep: This is a tough one. I’m falling asleep just fine, but I still have to wake up to go potty a lot. And I also wake up to roll from one side to the other because my hip is sore or my back doesn’t feel right in this or that position.
Best moment this week: Finally getting the basement cleaned out! Also, getting the house clean. Oh, and watching the Biggest Loser finale. Love that show!
Worst Moment this week: Two of my coworkers and I drove around looking for a Coldstone Creamery for about 20 minutes. We had coupons, people! Google Maps said there was one right by our work. Turns out there’s not. There’s nothing worse than thinking you’re going to get delicious Coldstone Creamery Birthday Cake Remix on a hot day, then realizing that dream will never be a reality…
Ok, so there are a lot of worse things than that, but still! It was bad!
Movement: Still not sure about the movement, but I think I may have felt it again last night. Hopefully the “real” movement will come soon! Though I’m sure I’ll be wishing otherwise once the baby starts showing his or her UFC moves in the third trimester.
Food cravings/aversions: I’m back on hard boiled eggs! Love ’em. And I’m getting them with DHA for extra good brain development. As for aversions, I still don’t want to eat at Garbanzo’s. Falafels kind of weird me out right now.
Belly Button in or out?: Definitely in.
What I miss: My hot girl jeans.
What I am looking forward to: REALLY looking pregnant. I kind of look like it now, but the other day a guy looked at me weird in the hallway of my office building. Like, “Hmmm, that girl looks kind of pudgy. Could be pregnancy, but probably just putting on a few pounds…” Whatever stranger man. Don’t judge me.
Milestones: Baby has fingerprints! So that is exciting. Also, our little cutie has mastered the art of the yawn! How adorable is that?!
Symptoms: Tired and sometimes out of breath for no reason. Otherwise, feeling fantastic! Also, I think my potty breaks are increasing. Baby must be sitting on my bladder.
And now for some pictures!!!
Thanks for reading my blog! I’m so glad you stopped by!
I will leave you with this picture of Norm. Cause he’s just so darn cute!
