18 Weeks

How far along? 18 weeks, 1 day.

Total Weight Gain? 5lbs.

Symptoms? So, apparently I can blame my crazy bad fall allergies this year on being pregnant. So yes. Allergies.

Stretch Marks? Still just the two.

Sleep? Pretty good. I'm thinking about one of those giant body pillows, but then where will my teddy bear sleep? :) I have to get up most nights to go to the bathroom, but it's not so bad.

Best Moment Last Week? Hitting 18 weeks. That seems like so much!

Movement? No idea.

Food Cravings? I have a massive sweet tooth. It's strange, because I don't normally eat that much sugar. After being diagnosed with hypo-glycemia (severe low blood sugar) in middle school, I kind of lost my sugar cravings. They're back, with 13 years to make up for!

What I miss? Being able to think clearly. Pregnancy brain is the real deal. I seem to have lost my spelling abilities, which is driving me crazy, because misspelled words are a huge pet peeve of mine. That didn't stop me from writing "wat" instead of "what" on the board the other day. Or "are" instead of "our" in an email.

What I am looking forward to? Monday's Gender scan!! (This baby better cooperate, or he's going to be grounded as soon as he's born! :) )

Milestones? not killing anyone this week. :) Can I leave that from last week. It feels like an accomplishment again! (I had to spell again three times to get it right....and times twice!)

How is Daddy? Other than trying to show my quickly disappearing belly button to the lady at last night, he's great. He ran me a bubble bath on Wednesday night after I complained that my whole body ached. (That's a much bigger job than it seems at our house, since our 13+ year old cat thinks the tub is her own personal poop palace.)

Last chance to enter for a giant Sumo fortune cookie! I will draw a name on Monday! All you have to do is tell me if you think it's a boy or a girl!


  1. So glad to hear everything's going well for you still!!

  2. I remember when my older sister was pregnant, she would say some of the funniest things. She blamed it on pregnancy brain. We may or may not still tease her. :) Can't wait to find out what you're having!

  3. hmmmm, I think that you are having a little girl. yep, thats my vote.
