Week 18: Sweet Potato


I was so proud of myself for actually posting this in week 18.  Then I forgot to hit post yesterday.  So pretend you saw it yesterday.  haha

How far along: 18 weeks

Total weight gain: 7 pounds.

Maternity clothes:  Except when I am in PJ's or scrubs.

Stretch marks: Not any new ones that I didn't have from Kai.

Sleep:   Not particularly well.

Best moment of this week: Going to the pumpkin patch with Destructo and my hubby finally coming home.  I hate when he is out of town traveling.

Miss anything: My back not hurting and Advil.  I really really miss Advil.  Yeah still the same.  I caught myself staring longingly at the bottle last night.  My midwife referred me for physical therapy for my back and hopefully this and the chiro I am seeing will help me to not be in so much pain all the time.

Movement:  Some.  Still very light and I can go all day without feeling him.  Occasionally if I bend over and squish him he gives a good hard jab.

Food cravings:  None this week. 

Have you started to show yet: Yes and I am carrying this boy slightly different than I did Kai.

Gender: Bouncing baby boy. 

 Labor signs: No

Belly button in or out: In  but getting more and more shallow.

Wedding rings on or off: On you know the two times a week I remember to put them on.

 Happy or moody most of the time:  A bit moody this week.  My mind just keeps racing about all the things I need/want to get done before this baby comes and it stresses me out.

Looking forward to:  My friend from Italy coming in for a visit.
