BUMPDATE: Week 18


Husband Observations: "She really likes rolling around." (i.e. I'm still getting used to the new distribution of body weight...and it has been difficult getting up off the couch or out of bed.)

How far along: 18 weeks; baby has all kinds of moves right now

Sleep: I’m sleeping really well still. I think my uterus is finally out of my pelvic area and not competing with my bladder for space. 

Miss anything in particular: I'm not a huge fan of sandwiches, but I really want a reuben or pastrami sandwich. How do you make corned beef without nitrates? Can I eat some nitrates?

Worst moment this week: Getting super nauseous on the bus and metro...the nausea just won't quit!

Best moment this week: I felt light "bubbles" in my belly. It feels like an internal fart, but supposedly it's the baby moving. I also enjoyed going to Olive & Oak for my birthday.
