18 Weeks

How far along:  18 Weeks

Baby is the size of a: Sweet Potato.

Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016

Total weight gain:  I weighed myself early last week and it’s looking to be close to about 10 lbs or so?  I can be super obsessive about the scale, either way, so I’ve made it a point not to weight myself obsessively every single morning.

Sleep:  Sleep is still good.  You guys are going to get tired of this refrain, but I wake up every morning with my urge to pee SO desperate, I nearly die.  My older running friends say that’s a thing as you age, so that’s something we all have to look forward to.

Best moment this week:  I managed to get active every single day this week due to the fact I was in a Fitbit steps competition all week with some folks I know.  I lost, came in second, but it kept me moving every day and hitting my goals.

Food cravings:  I had some nachos last night.  TOTALLY regret it though.  The beans/cheese are really too much for me, and I woke up feeling kinda crappy.  I can do more like nacho salad type things, but the nachos themselves just won’t work.

Food aversions:  The same.  Cooking meat, and fish are just not interesting to me.

Symptoms:  One really gross thing happened this week, and I will let that just be a really fun surprise should you find yourself pregnant.  And my boobs are enormous.  Absolutely enormous.  It’s unreal. Do they make this size?

Looking forward to:  Sunday.  I will officially be 19 weeks then, but we will get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl!  We are having a few people over to play yard games and to find out with us.  I am really really anxious about the scan – that’s where they pick up if anything appears abnormal, so that’s been bothering me the last few days.

In case you missed it (or care)!
