Bumpdate Weeks 17 & 18
How far along: 18 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 6 pounds
Maternity clothes: I have broken out the maternity shorts and bought a new pair of maternity jeans. I still haven’t ventured into the attic to get all of my old things. Basically, trying to wear anything normal that still fits!
Gender: Boy! Confirmed it at my doctor’s appointment this week!
Still no name, but really loved the ones you guys commented and texted to me! Keep them coming!
Movement: I feel him move a few times a day, but definitely not consistently.
Sleep: Pretty decent. I am up at least once a night to go to the bathroom. I had a really rough night of insomnia this past week, but slept like a rock since including a 2+ hour nap today that was heavenly!
Cravings: Chocolate chips and carbs! A salad also usually sounds good. And if you mention it, I probably want to eat it too.
Symptoms: I am way more worn out this time around. I think, though, I have it figured out. My level of exhaustion directly correlates with the number of toddler meltdowns I have experienced in one day. :) Needless to say, it has been a very tiresome few days! Ha!
What I am looking forward to: Seeing baby again, getting in the fabric samples I ordered and Tommy and I may do another overnight away soon, which sounds heavenly!
Best moments: Seeing baby boy this week and confirming that he is, indeed, a boy! Emmy sleeping until 8:30 on Friday morning. That was a dream that has never come true! (Though she was up at 6:25 this morning, so it was short lived.) Getting a great nap today! And beginning to think about his room and getting some fun ideas together!
