How Far Along? 18 weeks
Maternity Clothes? I love them, I just got my maternity leggings in the mail today!!!
Weight Gain? I lost just over a pound this week and so I am at a total weight gain of just under two pounds. I just can't stop getting sick. When I do feel good, I eat like a crazy person, trying to take advantage of the good times. Check out the belly and you will see that the baby seems to be growing just fine. I am going to ask my Dr. at the next appt, what I can do to gain more.
Stretch Marks? None so far!
Sleep? It is ok. It seems to be getting better!!! I may start using the body pillow soon, as my hips are a little creaky in the morning!
Best Moment of the Week? Making it to 18 weeks. You know how some things/numbers just stick with you as milestones, for some reason 18 weeks is that for me. I just can't believe that I have gotten to this point!
Weirdest Comment: Nothing really weird this week!
Movement? I have been feeling small movements randomly this past week. It's like little pops or hiccups in my stomach. I feel it the most in the morning!
Gender? Less than two weeks!!!! I am happy either way, but I am a bit more hopeful for a girl. I also think it is a girl (I am not sure if that is biased thinking though).
What I miss? Nothing really, I guess I do miss feta cheese, I LOVE feta.
Symptoms: Still lots of nausea. Lots of cramping in my lower abdomen (making room).
What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the sex, I am ready to start shopping!!!!!!
Weekly Wisdom: Don't eat too much in one sitting, it will be painful later that day/night. I have learned to feel bad for people with chronic heartburn and acid reflux, it does really hurt. I am so glad that I don't regularly struggle with that!!
Milestones: Again, 18 weeks just seems soooo far along to me!!!!
Emotions: Other than tired, I am feeling pretty good. I have lost some of my patience and toned down the control freak thing, so that is a change for me.
It is getting HUGE!!!!!!!
