How Far Along: 18 weeks
Baby Size: 7 ounces, the size of a bell pepper
Total Weight Gain: I'm going to stick with 12 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Still in maternity tanks but normal jeans, shirts, dresses.
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep: Good. Can't really sleep on my stomach any more. Having to do the good old leg hitch on Bryan again!
Best moment this week: Sharing with everyone that we are having a BOY!!
Miss Anything? Again with the wine....I have no clue why.
Movement: Okay, I'm about 98% sure that I am feeling movement now. Except it's not flutters like with Parker, they are nudges. I love nudges! Especially when baby gets bigger, which is why I'm not 100% positive that that's what's happening now. But it happens a lot and makes me happy!
Food Cravings: Water, fruit, Comfort food. My MIL made meat loaf last week and I can't stop thinking about it.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I don't know...Parker has had a stomach virus all week and I thought I had caught it when I lost my breakfast yesterday morning...but then I was fine, so I'm thinking maybe it was just pregnancy hormones? Either way, two people throwing up in one house is two too many.
Other Symptoms: Need to pee, tired, have had some round ligament pain (which makes sense since I look like a whale this week!)
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Still pretty moody. I have gotten mad at the dumbest things this week and have had a pretty negative attitude about a lot of things. And then I cry about it, so that's fun. I think I cried almost every day this week, which is a little ridiculous!
Looking forward to: Picking out a name (I think we have zeroed in the first name, but can't decide on a middle)
Differences from last pregnancy: I'm definitely a lot bigger at 18 weeks than I was with P. So, there's that! Also, I tend to forget that I'm pregnant a lot since I have Parker to chase around. It's so weird how much less fragile I think I am this time around. Truly, all of these symptoms are just afterthoughts compared to how much I focused on them when I was pregnant with Parker. Poor second child! ;)
