18 Weeks

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain: In the 4-7 range, I feel like it’s fluctuating lately
Maternity clothes? Sometimes! I’m currently purposefully wearing looser fitting clothes.
Sleep: Sleep is still good thankfully
Best moments this week: Oh gosh. It’s been a rough week emotionally, but I would have to say all of the kicks I’m feeling every day.
Miss Anything: so many things right now.
Movement: yes – and she is getting stronger!! I was able to capture a pretty big movement on my phone and sent it to my mom. She said she almost fell out of her chair lol. Also feeling kicks as I write this. Good morning baby girl :)
Food cravings: fruit I guess. Which we really need to go to the store so we don’t have any fresh fruit at home. I’ve had to settle for eating applesauce like I’m 5 years old. ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick: no! Symptoms: heart burn… some mild abdomen cramping. Still waiting for this leg cramps to kick in, omg :( they are the worst!
Have you started to show yet: yes
Gender: baby girl!
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? Both still I think
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: heh well. I’m not moody, just stressed and nervous about the current state of things. Hoping it will get better from here.
Weekly Wisdom: I’ve been giving myself one thing to do a day, to add a little joy to each day. Some things are: read a chapter in a book, find a specific baby item online, take a bath, have a cup of tea, etc.
Looking Forward To: no MDW at the lake for me… :’( next year for sure!!! Still just really looking forward to that 20 week ultrasound, even though it feels a lifetime away.
