Some neutral onesies my in-laws picked up for us
I have no pics for this week! I'm so bummed, but it mostly rained all week long or I was on the go, go, go. Then I got sick and NO ONE wants to see a bump pic of me sick. Especially when I never changed out of my pajamas.
How far along? 18 weeks today!
Total weight gain: We don't have a scale, but I weight myself earlier this week and there was no change, so I'm assuming still -1 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Still wearing my regular clothes! I got the most awesome jeggings from Kiki La'Rue that will totally take me through the rest of my pregnancy. They're a thicker material, similar to riding pants, and they're really low cut, below the belly so I'll wear them all the way through and after. Total score! All of you ladies be sure to pick them up!
Stretchmarks: None, my mother didn't get any so I'm hoping I picked up that gene in the DNA pool. I started to use Johnson's Baby Oil Shea and Cocoa Butter, but it gave me the gnarliest rash of my life. Which I was surprised being it Johnson's brand and for babies. I'm pretty bummed about it, it locked in so much moisture and smelled nice. Now I'm using a thick lotion my sister-in-law gave me from Bath and Body Works.
Sleep: I'm still sleeping well, I've had a few nights that were uncomfortable from a stomachache.
Owl Night Light, Plush toy, and book, all gifts from my sisters-in-laws
Best moment this week: When my two year old niece realized I had a baby in my belly and she'd kiss it and wave hello. It was the cutest thing!
Worst moment of the week: Being sick this week! I had a headache, earache, sore throat, and a stuffy nose. Luckily I was still off work so I literally stayed in bed all day long. If I could have taken something for it, it wouldn't have been so bad, but I'm not taking any medication other than my prenatals so I was pretty miserable.
Have you told family and friends: Yes, everyone knows!
Miss Anything? Just the same, rare meat, sushi, brie and blue cheese.
Movement: I'm 80% sure I've felt something this past week. I've kept laying still every night and morning to concentrate on the baby and a few times I've felt fluttering here and there, but I'm still not positive.
Food cravings: My fruit cravings are through the roof. I've moved on to juices- pomegranate, orange juice, lemonade, I can't get enough! Right now I can't wait to get my hands on a Jamba Juice! Oh, and a nice juicy cheeseburger.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing, I hope all my pregnancies will be like this!
Have you started to show yet: Yes, indeed.
This book is so cute! Each page has a different textile for baby to feel.
Symptoms: Round ligament pains, which are a sucker, and two more pimples this week.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Weekly Annoyance: Nothing this week. Maybe the annoyances have passed? LOL.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender and shopping for the little one.
