How far along: 18 ½ weeks! Getting so close to ½ way...what the actual heck?!
Total weight gain: I went to the Doctor’s yesterday and they said 4ish pounds total. It's a load of fun seeing the scale go up every visit!
Symptoms: Peeing (excuse my language) more than I thought was humanly possible. I went to the bathroom 23x’s one day (yes, I counted). Sleep is beginning to get a little uncomfortable because my body aches…especially my hips. Still throwing up occasionally on a night but overall that’s been better. Some days I’m not hungry at all and other days I’m a bottomless pit. Ha I never know what I’m in store for.
Best moment of this week: Jordan bought me a heartbeat monitor!!! I’ve been listening to her multiple times a day. I love hearing her little heart beating and listening to her move around in there! Gosh it never gets old!
Movement: I think I’ve maaaaybe felt her a couple of times, but not enough to tell. The doctor said my placenta is right in front of her and is cushioning her kicks…BUT I should start to feel movement next week!
Food cravings: Eggs and avocado are still a crowd favourite (for me and babe). I’ve really been craving salt this week - like non-greasy fries with TONS of ketchup. Well, basically just ketchup haha.
Anything making you queasy or sick: When I haven’t eaten for a while I get really sick. I need to eat about every 2 hours or else I’m doomed. Other than that, nothing specifically. It’s a case of I don’t know it’s going to make me sick until after I’ve eaten it. Swell.
Have you started to show yet: Not fully...although I think I’m on the verge of "popping". After I’ve eaten my stomach sticks out...but it that always happened haha. I still just look thicker so I’ve been sticking to my baggier attire. Top of belly button is sticking out still (that's the weirdest thing to me!). Someone said I look bloated the other day (HA thanks for that btw) so at least that’s something??
Looking forward to: Feeling her move!! I can HEAR her doing all sorts of tricks on the monitor and she's a wiggly little thing on the ultrasounds...but man she’s making me work for it.
