Here we are at 18 weeks already!!! 2 weeks from HALFWAY, people!!!! That’s crazy.
Here is the skinny on what’s happening:
Size of the baby: He’s about the size of a pear. Five and 1/2 inches long, and about 7 ounces. He can move, yawn, and hiccup. Over the next four weeks, the baby’s size will increase SIX TIMES. WOW.
Weight gain: 10 lbs.
Movement: I feel him move almost everyday if I take the time to lay down and be still for him.
Sleep: Terrible! I go to bed around midnight and wake up like clock work at 4:30 needing to pee! Then as soon as I fall back asleep, Johns alarm goes off. The baby is up between 0830-0930.
what I miss: Naps. My naps are hardly ever successful.
Cravings: Fried pickles, pizza, chocolate pie, pumpkin bread pudding, and orange or apple juice.
Symptoms: The nausea is gone for the most part. Once a week it will sneak up on me FAST and I will have to either council myself about not needing to throw up, or if we are past that phase, just go get sick, pout a few minutes, and it’s all over. Just as quickly as it came. Strange. My back and hips have been KILLING ME. My hips feel like I have been thrown out of a window while sitting Indian style so that when I hit the ground I hit with my hips and but cheeks. They’re even sore to the touch!
Best moment this week:Getting some cute pictures of our family! And also getting some time with a friend!
Worst moment this week:The way my hips have felt today.
That’s all folks.
