Size: Sweet Potato
Gender: Appointment is May 28thMovement: Increasing by the day. Not strong enough for hubs to feel yet.
Sleep: I’m missing my comfortable bed this week. I love staying at my parents house but I miss my bed and pregnancy pillow!
Cravings: Lemonade this week along with cereal.
Aversions: None this week.
Symptoms: Another week of no sickness, woo hoo. I’m starting to feel more and more like my pre pregnancy self. I’m still way more emotional than the first time around. My headaches are out of control. And the swelling has started. Boo.
What I Miss: Fitting comfortably into a bathing suit.What I’m Looking Forward To: Meeting all of my friends new babies this week while I’m home in FL. It’s been a while since I’ve been around newborns, I can’t wait to get my fix!
Best Moment This Week: Just being home in FL surrounded by family and friends.
Week 19 * I blame my trip to FL for not having a picture this week*
Gender: Two more weeks, I cannot wait!Movement: Lots at night, I love it.
Sleep: Still missing my bed and pillow while at my parents in FL.
Cravings: I’ve been loving coffee and chai this week. I hadn’t had it in so long and now I can’t get enough. Of course, I only have one cup a day with LOTS of ice in it. I also had a DQ blizzard this week…hit the spot!
Symptoms: This week is the best I have felt this entire pregnancy. I have a few headaches here and there, swelling in the morning but that is really it. I do remember that around this time with AG is when I really started feeling better, I’m happy it’s happening again this time around.
What I Miss: Publix SandwichesWhat I’m Looking Forward To: Getting to the half way point, finding out the gender and to get started shopping!
Best Moment This Week: AG started handing me my doppler and saying baby. After we her her little brother or sisters heartbeat, she puts the doppler onto her belly (turned off of course.) She is going to be such a great big sister.Thoughts: I have to be honest and say that weight gain has been a struggle this time around. A big struggle for me. I’m gaining more weight than I did at this time with AG. What frustrates me is that I’m working out three times a week (I didn’t work out with her), chasing after a toddler all day and eating healthier than I ever have. It drives me crazy. I think the biggest difference this time around is that I know how hard it is to lose the baby weight. Before AG everyone said it will just fall off. So I didn’t worry about what I ate one bit with her. This time I know how much a load of crap that is. Nothing was falling off my body, I worked hard to get back to my pre pregnancy weight. So this time I wanted to be more conscious with it. I know that I am trying which is all that counts, I just hope that in the end it will pay off.
