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.)

................................................................

Due date: February 11, 2019

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

Size of baby: As big as an artichoke

Gender: 
Choosing not to open an envelope that says so don’t know yet! 

Total weight gain: 12 lbs

Symptoms: Occasional nausea in certain situations


Physical changes: There's a permanent protrusion that I can't suck in...belly button is still an innie!

Labor signs: None

Stretch marks: None

Wedding ring: On

Maternity clothes: I have one pair of maternity pants that I wear all the time. I need to go shopping for more stuff. 

Diet: The constant hunger is driving me crazy.

Food cravings:
        • OJ (thought I was over OJ but I still love it)
        • Whole banana peppers 
        • Popcorn and rice cakes
        • Tomatoes in any form

Food aversions: I can eat most things right now.


Exercise: Walking.

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?

Mood: Happy and grateful. Hoping the baby is okay.

Looking forward to: Bumming it next weekend while Evan is vacationing in Colorado.

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.
