How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: I am still negative one pound gain. And I will take it!
Maternity clothes: This week I decided that I need to invest into some maternity scrub pants and tops. The pants that I have fit me but when I sit down I really feel a lot of pressure on the lower abdomen and it was getting really uncomfortable. So I purchased the same color pants but with room for my bump to grow. As far as the top goes I just purchased a button up scrub top that I can unbutton and wear a white shirt underneath as the bump grows. Its all about the comfort!
Sleep: Definitely feeling a little struggle this week trying to get comfortable. I am a belly sleeper so not being able to do that any longer is somewhat of a struggle. I will get use to it. I have also notice I am peeing much more than I did pre-pregnancy. It’s a glimpse into whats coming I just know it;)
Best moment this week: Getting this wedding reception planned. I feel like I have a great grasp on it! I have everything coordinated to the best of my ability. I think that this will be an awesome PARTY! I hope everyone has fun!
Miss anything? I don’t think I missed much this week. I have been so concentrated on the wedding reception.
Movement: I feel him a lot at night when I am laying down ready to go to bed.
Food cravings: Olives! I love olives. I usually eat two a day! I even like drinking the juice, haha!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No. I feel great!
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: No symptoms other than him kicking me! But I love it!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, mostly this week! It is a little stressful planning a party for 200 guests and keeping it around a budget. I say around a budget because I have never really been that great at keeping a budget. Rick is much better at sticking to and keeping a budget. I will say that we compliment each other in that aspect.
Looking forward to: I will be having my 18 week anatomy ultrasound of my little man. I am looking forward to seeing all of the measurements they will do.
Days to go: 154
Baby development: Baby is the size of a bell pepper. His is busy flexing his arms and legs, movements that I feel. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they’re still standing out from his head at bit.
I love him more and more everyday! I can’t wait to meet him.
