I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is going by. I am already a little sad that it is almost half-way over. Oh, what a crazy, emotional ride these hormones have me on.
How far along?: 18 Weeks Pregnant
Total weight gain: Sticking around the same as last week.
Maternity clothes: Um…yes. I have finally said goodbye to my work khakis. Some of my “fat” jeans are giving me a few more weeks though.
Stretch marks: None. Here’s hoping this lasts.
Sleep: Awful! This week I have developed back pain…so much back pain.
Best moment this week: So much movement! This lil’ babe has been fluttering around in there non-stop and I couldn’t be happier.
Miss anything?: Caffeine
Food Cravings: Really had a thing for Better Cheddar crackers this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Pasta, bread, and now meat.
Gender: Still a surprise but only 9 more days until we know
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Back pain.
Belly button in or out?: In
Wedding rings on or off?: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and calm.
Looking forward to: Can’t wait to find out what the little is!
Exercising still?: Worked out a few times this week but not as consistently as I would have liked. Hoping to do better next week.
It gets more and more exciting as the weeks pass. Its been 18 weeks, and I'm sure you're so excited to see your baby. Anyway, have you talked to your ob/gyne or to your midwife about the appropriate exercise routines that you can do? I do hope you'll ask them for some advice once you schedule a visit. 🙂
