DATE: January 18, 2013
How far along: 18 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 4.4 pounds. (Yes, I gained 3.2 pounds in ONE week. No, I am not sure how that happened. I guess my body is just catching up. My dr. told me this would happen…but I still don’t lie to see such a big gain in ONE week. Hopefully that tapers off now and I gain at a more reasonable rate.)
Maternity Clothes: some this week. I have a pair of Black skinny pants and a pair of jeans that I am wearing. My SIL is pregnant too…but due on February 14. I gave her all of my clothes before I was pregnant…so I have to hold out until she gives them back to me!
Sleep: Fine…but my kids are up all night. Ugh.
Best Moment of the Week: Starting to see a bit of a bump (not sure how I REALLY feel about that, but I am going to embrace it I guess).
Movement: not that I can feel yet…
Food Craving: fruity candy….skittles and licorice. And ice cream this week too. This MAY have been a factor in my 3.2 pound gain this week. Last week I craved fruit.
Food Aversions: none, really
Morning Sickness: none! Hallelujah.
Gender: IDK…not finding out this time. I don’t have a hunch yet…
Symptoms: growing belly, itchy skin.
What I miss: caffeine…I’m getting headaches.
What I'm looking forward to: Fetal Survey US next week!
