How Far Along: 18 weeks
Baby’s Size: Sweet Potato (5.5 inches, 5 oz)
Symptoms: Hunger! I want to eat all the time now. I am trying to keep my snacks as healthy as possible.
Weight Gain: I am currently down 3.5 pounds from when I got pregnant (+1.5 from last week).
Maternity Clothes: Apparently I need more since I just noticed that I am wearing the EXACT same outfit in the picture this week as I was last week.
Cravings: I had a huge craving when I was writing this post but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out what it was for. Has that happened to anyone else?? In the end Pickled Okra hit the spot.
Food Aversions: Nothing new.
Belly Button – In or Out? Still in but just barely.
Movement: Feeling him move about once a day now ~ it sure is great! I can’t wait until it becomes more frequent so that Monkey Girl and hubs can feel it too
Sleep: Still having a hard time getting comfortable.
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: This weekend my brother in law and his family moved so we went to help. Since I am no help moving boxes I got to watch the kids (Monkey plus my 5 year old and 2 month old nieces). It was a blast and Monkey loved helping with her baby niece. Just as we were leaving the baby got hungry so she started crying (she had done great the rest of the day). In the car on the way home my husband made a joke that he and Monkey Girl would hide out together once the baby was born. By the time we got home she was telling me “When the baby comes out Daddy and I are going to run and hide. Then the baby is going to turn into a monster and come find us.” Good thing right now she loves Monsters, Inc. and thinks they are her friends
