Maternity clothes: Oh, yeah!
Stretch marks: Hip and thigh ones are flaring up from puberty.
Sleep: Able to sleep harder now in between bathroom runs :) Lovin' that! I am up to something like 10-ish hours a night. What a BUM!
Movement: Picking up in strength in regularity, but no patterns yet. One day I thought she had moved a trampoline in there...it was the most I have felt. I am openly admitting that each kick kind of surprises me, and weirds me out a bit.
Cravings/Aversions: Cravings: Nothing specific this week. Aversions: Stinky odors, red meat, and whatever doesn't agree with me on any given day.
Gender: at this point, we have decided not to find out...let's see if we hold steadfast to that! DH says boy, I say girl.
Symptoms: Let me update you on the nasty stuff, as I've been silent on it. Spike has been absent for nearly 2 weeks, but his kid, Junior, is here EVERY day for at least a while. So, daily headaches, still. And I get excited now and then because I will get a day or 2 with no vomit...and then it comes back. So still dry-heaving quite a bit. Kinda freaked out my new boss this week. LOL. I warned him! Apparently he didn't realize just HOW serious I was.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.
What I look forward to: Regular movement, seeing Hubby's face when he gets to feel her move. Ultrasound in 2 weeks - soooooo excited for that!
Milestones: A complete stranger was sitting with me at work, and I was doing a potty dance. She said, "I remember what that's like when you're expecting." I hadn't told her :) So strangers can tell I'm pregnant!
Medical Concerns: Hypothyroid, anxiety, migraines. Ready for the list? Syn.throid 50 mcg, Zo.loft 100 mg, Zo.fran pump, Iron, D3, B12, Vitamin C, Folic acid, no more prenatals, Bene.fiber, stool softeners. I feel like a major pill popper.
Weekly Wisdom: Stop freaking out over my morning weigh-ins. It's out of my hands for the most part!
Best moment this week: Being told that I'm glowing, feeling my babe move.
|18 weeks! See, lots of me getting bigger the last 2 weeks!|
