How far along: 18 weeks already!
How big is baby: The size of a sweet potato.
Total weight gain: 15lbs, ugh! Better than last time though, not complaining!
Maternity clothes: I actually wore a non maternity shirt and dress (not together) this week. Actually my brown leggings and most of my work out pants aren’t maternity either. ; ) It’s the little things!
Sleep: Okay, allergies are kicking my butt so I wake up to sneeze and blow my nose at least once a night.
Best moment of the week: Hearing the baby’s heartbeat again on Monday. I saw my lung doctor today and he said my lungs sound great and I should have a full recovery. I’m going to go back after the baby is born for a chest x-ray and a final check up but he said I’m doing great!
Food cravings: Sweets.
Food aversions: Nothing really.
Symptoms: Allergies and heartburn! My eyes have been SO itchy lately!!
Movement: Not really a lot. Every now and then, I’ll feel a tap.
Gender: No idea at all. FYI, if someone has told you (hint: Mom or Debbie) that we are having a girl, we DO NOT know for sure the sex of the baby. I know several people who have had incorrect results from the Intelligender test, despite their 90% accuracy claim. I repeat, we do not know if the baby is a girl or boy. My ultrasound is June 9th and we will hopefully know then.
What I’m looking forward to: My birthday is Sunday! Woo HOO!! Ultrasound too, of course!
What I miss: No heartburn and allergies not being as bad.
Next appt: June 9th for the big ultrasound!
