Preggo #4: Bump Update-Week 18

Hi everyone!  Thanks for checking in!  I am 18 weeks pregnant.  I feel really good for the most part 😊.  So the baby calendar over at Babycenter says baby is the size of a bell pepper. I am in my fourth month.

We haven’t announced yet, so you probably won’t read this update until after the actual announcement, but I still wanted to document all the same.  Here’s hoping you enjoy the update.

Miss anything: Yes, but it’s not really because of pregnancy.  I like smoothies with ginseng.  With COVID-19, I haven’t been going to my local smoothie place (I can’t make them taste the same at home).  I really miss them.  Oh, and Icees.  None of the stores sale them anymore because they are self serve and risk contamination.  Sigh.
