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)!
