Hello everyone! It’s been a productive week though very busy. The sun has come out a few days and the temperatures have been such that the littles have been able to run around outside for a while. Daylight savings time definitely kicked my butt this week and S. and I kind of announced our pregnancy on social media. Here’s this week’s preggo update! Hope you enjoy!
How far along: 18 weeks
How big is baby: the size of a bell pepper
Gender: Unknown (Team Green)
Events of this week: Anatomy Scan (18w6d), Social Media Announcement
Symptoms: I’m tired this week. The time change combined with seasonal pollen changes and I’m just exhausted these days. It’s all I can do to come home and cook dinner before grabbing a nap.
Sleep:Not the best this week. I’ve been pretty tired, but keep waking up to pee.
Maternity clothes: Yep! You should definitely check out tomorrow’s blog about what pieces I’m loving.
Stretch marks: Yep.
Belly Button: In.
Food cravings: No
Food aversions: The smell of coffee still bothers me.
Movement: Yes J
Best Moment of the Week: The anatomy scan was great
Worst Moment of the Week: The Braxton Hicks that hit this week were NOT without pain.
What I’m looking forward to: My doctor appointment
What I’m nervous about/praying for: Praying for a healthy baby, for those who are suffering and in want, for our nation
