How far along: 18 weeks, 2 days
Maternity clothes: Love my new maternity jeans. I like the idea of the belly band, but it still leaves a crease in the middle of my stomach that is WAY noticeable. I also am a fan of cardigan sweaters right now. They help me feel a little skinnier than normal.
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleeping better this week because we only had a two-day work week and Mike has been home.
Best moment this week: Seeing family for Thanksgiving and SHOPPING. I ran a Turkey Trot on Thursday and did it in 36 minutes. It’s funny because the first time I ever tried a 5k, I did it in 35 minutes, so I felt accomplished being pregnant and running my first time. I also loved sitting down and making crafts and recipes that I never have time to work on this week!
Miss anything: Having a ton of energy, running, mountain biking, and getting a REALLY awesome workout in with the hubby. I miss riding the Rim Trail in Cloudcroft.
Morning sickness: None. Lucky me.
Movement: Not yet. I think I may be feeling it, but people say it is really obvious, so I will wait and confirm when I KNOW it is happening.
Food cravings: Bosa Donuts (chocolate covered glazed), applesauce, grapes, cranberry juice, and of course, ICE CREAM.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Occasionally, I get nauseous when I cook chicken and some kinds of microwave foods get to me. I also have been getting REALLY dizzy in general lately and they say it’s pretty common.
Have you started to show yet: Yes. I am glad I have friends in the same boat as me so I have been talking to them about their size and how they feel.
Gender prediction: Boy. We might find out this week because I have an appointment this Friday. I am SOOOOO excited to find out!
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In, but it’s really flat because my stomach is pooching right on the belly button area.
Wedding rings on or off: On…I actually wore mine a couple of times this week and didn’t have any problems!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy because I was off work. Only moody at night. My poor in-laws had to deal with a cranky girl too when I was shopping and was really hungry. Mike would definitely say I am moody too. 🙂
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender! And hopefully getting back a positive scan on the anatomy scan this week! I am so nervous!
