Week 18 Bumpdate


Bump Update

How far along? 18 weeks

Total weight gain: 3 pounds at my last appointment. I am afraid to step on my scale at home.

Maternity clothes: I’m wearing some regular clothes and some maternity tops/pants.

Stretch marks: Unfortunately they have been there since I was younger seeing as though I have struggled with my weight all of my life.
    
Sleep:I've been trying to sleep on my side lately because I heard that my uterus and baby are getting big enough to press on the large veins in the back of my abdomen which can reduce the amount of blood going to my heart. I am a stomach sleeper, so this has been very hard for me to do. 
My sister just had her baby daughter a few weeks ago, so she is giving me her wrap around body pillow to use.

Best moment this week: Feeling Jordan kick at 17 weeks and 1 day. It was an amazing feeling. 
We got him a pack n' play this week and set it up. We also ordered the bookcase for his nursery and I cannot wait to get it and put it together. Well, Mike will probably put it together. I get frustrated with putting furniture together. Mainly because I don't like to read directions. lol

Miss anything? I still miss having some drinks with my babe. I so want some wine. On the bright side, I am 4 months sober! ;) 

Food cravings: Too many to list. We went grocery shopping last night and I was hungry and craving a lot. Needless to say, our bill way pretty high.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope. My appetite is back and I haven't been feeling sick at all.

Gender: BOY!!!!

Symptoms: I'm peeing a lot more. My chest is getting bigger. I am extremely exhausted all of the time. I'm starting to feel those round ligament pains. Other than that, I'm great!
 
Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: When I am at work I am moody. When I am home, I am happy, but oh so tired. I don't think this will change.
 
Looking forward to: My doctor's appointment to hear Jordan's heartbeat next week.
