How far along: 18 weeks
Maternity clothes: I am a lot bigger this time (due to being out of shape), so I slipped into a few bottoms a couple of weeks ago. I still wear a lot of normal t-shirts of mine. I wear a lot of hoodies and cardigans right now, which is nice that I am not working! It’s all about comfort!
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: I’ve been so tired! I feel more tired now than my first trimester, but I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that Mike is going through treatment and we are trying to sell the house. I get a pretty good nights sleep once or twice a week at least!
Best moment this week: Finally getting organized and getting to blogging about our little man. I feel bad that it took me this long to do this! He deserves some attention too! I felt him “flutter” a little when I was holding still yesterday.
Miss anything: My body, mountain biking (even though I did go on a ride this week), and wearing my normal jeans. There are two girls due the same day as me that I know and they are still wearing normal clothes…haha.
Morning sickness: None. Lucky me. Neither of the beasts gave me morning sickness. I just had a little bit of nausea in the first trimester.
Movement: A little fluttering if I hold really still, but nothing yet.
Food cravings: I really want BBQ all the time and breakfast items like waffles or pancakes. I just took my glucose test this week and I am almost positive I have gestational again, so I will be on a strict diet after this week! Plus, I need to only gain 15-20 pounds this pregnancy.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Some veggies. I make myself eat them, but for some reason the smell of zucchini or squash makes me sick.
Have you started to show yet: Yes. I look like I am 25 weeks.
Gender prediction: Boy. We took a DNA test at ten weeks and they told us over the phone. We have an anatomy scan next week to confirm.
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In, but it’s really funky looking this time. It’s flat.
Wedding rings on or off: Off…I never really wear it because my hands are always grimy! Poor Mike. I promise to wear it after the baby!
Happy or Moody most of the time: I am a basket case! Like I said, I think a lot is what is going on around me, but everything is super emotional…commercials, Olivia, Mike, Barney…they all set me off!
Looking forward to: The anatomy scan…even though it makes me VERY NERVOUS! Fingers crossed!
