18 Weeks, 4 Days


  How far along: 18 Weeks, 4 Days

Total weight gain: When I checked last, I hadn’t gained any since last time. According to my doc, it’s 2 lbs… but my guess is that I’m closer to 5-7 lbs.

Maternity clothes: All day, every day.

Stretch marks: Nada… yet.

Sleep: I thought we were past the toddler night terrors, but they’ve returned this week. Between the toddler and the puppy, I’ve had a couple sleepless nights lately… but there is a big positive. One that I’m very proud of. I recently took a break from my typical “chick lit” books and picked up Pride & Prejudice… and with my recent night wakings, managed to finish it! Take that, high school self! Not only did I finish it, but I REALLY enjoyed it! Go me!

Best moment of this week: My little bug is doing SO well at school. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy it makes me to see her loving school so much and thriving and growing as she is. She’s just such an amazing little lady.

Miss anything: Maybe a glass of red wine.

Movement: Yes!! Still just little bumps here and there… but it’s so fun! I can’t wait for the big kicks!

Food cravings: Food and I are not in a good place. I’m in my low confidence in my body place right now. SO, I’m trying very hard to make better choices and get my preggo butt to the gym. I have to stay healthy for this little nugget inside of me!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Feeling good!

Have you started to show yet: Yes!

Gender: My cousin claims to be 100% sure it’s another girl. Everyone else thinks boy. I just don’t know!

Labor signs: No, no.

Belly button in or out: It’s a gaping hole.

Wedding rings on or off: On!

Happy or moody most of the time: I’ve got to be honest, I have been operating on a fine line of wanting to punch people in the face. My crabby switch gets flipped SO easily these days. I can feel myself getting wildly offended by things I’m not sure are actually an issue. I’m trying to take deep breaths. Maybe next week will be better! haha

Looking forward to: We find out the sex of the baby NEXT WEEK!!! AHH!! I can’t even believe I’m already almost at the halfway point! How has time whizzed by so quickly? Another exciting thing… Marky and I are going to paint C’s big girl room this weekend! YAY! I can’t wait to get it all set up!

  1. I am sooooooo EXCITED to find out the gender!!! Do you have any guesses? (I always guess wrong, so I’m not even going to try to guess. Ha!). But this is most definitely exciting stuff!
    I still remember that I originally found your blog, because I was looking for some blogs written by pregnant women (because I was pregnant at the time). I think I had ‘just’ found out that I was pregnant, when I came across your blog. So reading your pregnancy updates are so fun and bring back memories of those days! I was so eager to read about your experiences, because I was soaking up all the info I could get!! Ha, ha.

  2. Ahh so exciting!! Look at your little bump grow! I’m so excited to see your update next week after the gender test. I was most nervous about the baby kicks/movement before I had Palmer. I had some uneasiness about my body being controlled from inside by a tiny unknown creature but I guess that’s something you make peace with over time. 😉
