(ugh I hate taking these pictures- trying to keep up though and clearly I remember when I'm not planning on leaving the house)
How Far Along: 18 weeks, 5 days today
Total Weight Gained: 4lbs at 16 week check up. Thinking it's around 6lbs total by now ;)
Sleep: Just fine! Other than I'm having a hard time staying off my back. I use a Sealy's maternity pillow that I love. Still I end up waking up flat on back... need to fix that.
Best Moment of the Week: Feeling an outside kick.
Food Cravings: Peaches/nectarines, Salads, Pasta with vodka sauce. Pretty much anything. I'm food crazy.
Food Aversions: Nothing
Symptoms: pulling in abdomen, random nausea (gagging every morning)
Movement: little bits here and there... starting to feel more, finally.
Gender: We will find out August 14th :)
What I miss: not too much other than the naps I could take while pregnant with Addison. Oh how I would give for afternoon napping!
What I'm looking forward to: preparing for a baby girl or boy.
This pregnancy I'm gaining much more weight already than I did with Addison, and I can tell. I feel fluffier... not just a tiny belly poking out ;) Which makes me look larger, belly comparison wise. With Addison I gained 15lbs total. I'm counting on this one being 20-25lbs! The big difference is I could never eat more than two bites with Addison, even if I was starving at first. I felt miserable after eating a palm-ful of food. Sooo miserable I had to stop. This baby?? I LOVE food... and I eat it ALL. I love snacks too, maybe a little too much.
I also felt Addison more by this point. This baby is really random, and when it does move it's only for a minute. I'm ready for move moving :) I love the reassurance! And I honestly believe it's one of the best parts of pregnancy. Even when it starts hurting at the end!
