How far along: 18/19 Weeks
Total weight gain: 3 lbs
Maternity clothes: My regular dress pants are getting snug but they still are working! It’s maternity for everything else.
Stretch marks: None that I can see
Sleep: I usually wake up once to use the bathroom but other than that, sleeping well.
Best moment of this week: Finding out we are having a girl! Also, I got to meet Charlotte for the first time and get all caught up with my friend Robyn. It was so fun to see them and I can’t wait until we see each other again.
Miss anything: Still missing my clear skin but this week it is much better than last.
Movement: I think it’s safe to say I’m feeling movement. The last week or 2 I’ve had what feels like a muscle twitch but I’m almost positive it is actually what most normal people describe as fluttering! It’s hard to tell when you’ve never felt it before. I’ve also felt a few little “taps” which means she is kicking! This has only happened a few times but it is distinct enough for me to stop what I’m doing and hope it happens again.
Food cravings: I am loving french fries and ketchup still. And this weekend I had Slim’s chicken and cayenne ranch. SO GOOD! I’m really liking strawberry popsicles as well.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Last week several things made me feel sick but I think it was related to my cold and my stomach not being settled after being sick.
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Gender: Girl, no name yet..she does have a growing collection of very cute clothes though. She also has many nicknames giving my family including: Stella, Kitten, and Fancypants.
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Looking forward to: Anatomy scan on the 27th and we’ve had some more house showings the last 2 weeks. Hopefully this house sells soon!
